uPVC Doors

We specialise in the opening, repair and replacement of lock cylinders and multi-point locking mechanisms to uPVC double glazed doors. With an average life span of 10 years, the mechanisms can often fail without warning leaving you locked in or out of your home. Acting early avoids unnecessary strain on the mechanism and can save you a lot of money and inconvenience.

Common faults include:

  • Unable to lock or unlock door – key is turning but the door won’t open
  • Handle hard to lift or won’t lift at all to lock the door
  • Handle ‘crunching’ when locking or unlocking
  • Cannot remove key from lock when the door is locked/unlocked
  • Key snapped in lock
  • Lost keys
  • Keys stolen and need for lock to be changed for security

  • Opening of jammed doors
