Door Lock Repairs in Burgess Hill

The locking mechanism found on UPVC and Composite doors including Patio, French and Bi-Fold doors is called a multipoint lock. Failure typically results from misalignment stressing components or general wear. Sussex Double Glazing Repairs carries various multipoint locks, sometimes conducting repairs in one visit.

If lacking your model, we temporarily secure doors overnight until the proper replacement lock arrives. We also replace problematic euro cylinders – whether keys damaged, stuck or lost.

Door Realignment / Dropped Door

Door Realignment / Dropped Door

A principal genesis of temperamental multipoint door locks is the slab and frame falling out of parallel alignment gradually after repetitive use. Specialised realignment via hinge tuning, frame adjustments or overall door hanging is recommended to avoid forcing expensive hardware replacements later.

For the smoothest operation, have Sussex Double Glazing Repairs optimise whole door system alignment to equalise weight distributions properly.

Door Handles

Prolonged use erodes the sturdiness of door handles over time – they’ll begin feeling limp and sagging visually. This marks impending mechanical failure jeopardising security if left unserviced. While rapid remedies are briefly possible perhaps, replacement is generally ideal before total breakdown necessitates emergency locksmiths.

For correctly sized handles meeting your exact multipoint lock specs, phone conscientious veteran specialists Sussex Double Glazing Repairs at the initial signs of loose, drooping handles.

FAQs

Repairing a UPVC door involves fixing specific issues like faulty locks, misalignment, or minor surface damage. It’s usually less expensive and quicker, preserving the original structure. Replacing a UPVC door means installing a completely new door, which is more costly and time-consuming but ensures all components are new and often includes a warranty. Replacement is ideal for significant damage or when a major upgrade is needed.

Common problems with UPVC doors include misalignment, making them hard to open or close; lock issues like stiffness or jamming; worn or loose hinges; deteriorating weather stripping causing drafts; and surface damage such as scratches, cracks, or discolouration from exposure to the elements.

Yes, a crack in a UPVC door can often be repaired. Minor cracks can be fixed with specialised UPVC repair kits that use fillers and adhesives. For larger cracks or those affecting structural integrity, professional repair may be necessary. In severe cases, replacing the door might be the best solution to ensure safety and functionality.

To fix a malfunctioning lock on a UPVC door, lubricate the mechanism with graphite powder or a silicone-based lubricant. Check and adjust the alignment of the door and strike plate. Inspect for any worn or damaged parts and replace them if needed. Ensure all screws are tight and secure. If these steps don’t work, consider replacing the lock cylinder or calling us.
