It’s a fact that modern UPVC door locks are made to last for a long time. However, this doesn’t mean that they cannot fail. When there are problems with inserting and turning the key, the cylinder is most likely broken or worn and has to be changed. If it’s not possible to lock or unlock the door despite turning the key, the locking mechanism may have come to the end of its useful life and should be replaced. Generally, there is no need to wait for your lock to fail to change it. It pays off to upgrade to a more advanced device every three or five years. This is also recommended if the crime rate in your area has risen. The ideal new lock will be protected from snapping, picking and drilling.
Problems with the hinges can make the door impossible to close and lock properly. They should be adjusted accurately. Sometimes, more specific repair is required. If the hinges are greatly damaged or broken, they should be replaced. The door panel and the frame can suffer a great deal of damage over the course of their useful life. While abrasion and scratches affect primarily the looks of the unit, cracks, splits and chips can compromise security. That is why these kinds of problems have to be fixed right away. With the right repair techniques, the condition of the door can be restored fully. Proper door alignment will result in smooth and hassle-free operation at all times. Your responsibility is to use the lock and handle with care and to maintain the door.Back To Our Services
