UPVC Door LocksBack To Our Services
When UPVC door locks don’t work smoothly as usual or there is a problem with closing and opening the door, it’s time to take action. Don’t procrastinate – take action.
When it is impossible to insert or turn the key, this is a sign that the lock cylinder has failed and has to be changed. For getting a higher level of security, you can get a more advanced cylinder. When the key turns fine, but the door cannot lock/unlock, the issue must be with the locking mechanism. The fix can involve cleaning and lubrication. If the mechanism is broken, it should be replaced. When you have to jiggle the key to unlock the door, the key could be bent or damaged and has to be changed.
UPVC Door and Frame Repair
When the door is not properly aligned and doesn’t open and close normally, the hinges are most likely responsible. The inspection will reveal if they are simply loose, bent or broken. They should get tightened, repaired or replaced right away. Both the panel and the frame could suffer from scratches, dents, chips, cracks and splits. These and similar front door problems can be fixed with the right repair techniques. When the damage is too great, door replacement is usually the best solution.
When is the right time for this? If the old lockset is extensively damaged, worn or outdated, installing a new one is mandatory. This is also recommended when you move into a new home or office. The cylinder should be replaced, at least. The new lock must meet the latest British Standards from 2012. The installation involves the accurate and secure fitting of all components. The test should confirm that both the cylinder and the locking mechanism work smoothly.
