Are you having problems with your uPVC or composite door? Are you having to force the handle up and down? Has the door dropped down and is catching on the threshold? Is the key stiff to turn? These are just some of the problems we deal with on a daily basis and if caught early enough can be corrected without the need for expensive replacement parts. If you are having to force it then the locking mechanism will eventually break potentially causing a lockout at the most inconvenient of times so please don’t leave it till it’s too late, call us today for a uPVC door repair.
Lock is jammed or stuck
The two main mechanical parts of a uPVC or composite door are the euro profile cylinder lock and the multi point locking mechanism. If you find that the key will not fully go into the cylinder or will go in but won’t turn then the problem is likely to be the cylinder which will need to be replaced once the door has been opened.
If the key goes into the euro lock and turns one complete revolution and the door won’t open then the problem is likely that the multi point lock has failed and will need to be replaced or repaired once the door is open.
Lock works but the key can’t be removed
This is almost certainly a problem with the euro cylinder which will need to be replaced.
Door or window will not lock
There are a number of reasons why a door may not lock and if caught early enough then most problems can be resolved by making adjustments to the door and lock alignment before anything gets broken. Mechanical failure usually occurs when problems are ignored and the door is having to be forced which will rather quickly destroy the delicate locking mechanism. In this situation then it’s likely that replacement parts will be required as well as having to make the necessary alignment adjustments to prevent the problem happening again.
