Door Lock Repairs in Steyning

The locking mechanism found on UPVC and Composite doors including Patio, French and Bi-Fold doors is called a multipoint lock. Sussex Double Glazing Repairs stocks multiple replacement locks, often fixing issues immediately.

If lacking your special lock, we install temporary security until obtaining the matching model. We replace equally strained cylinders plus broken, stuck or lost keys.

Door Realignment / Dropped Door

A principal driver of frustrating, premature multipoint lock failures is doors losing proper level and plumb over years of use. Latch gear and mated keeps then misalign, breeding mechanical friction and strain that culminate in fracture.

To prevent forcing new lock purchases, leverage Sussex Double Glazing Repairs’ expertise – properly realigning whole systems via deliberate hinge tweaks, keep resets or full panel rehanging.

Door Handles

After enduring years of repetitive use typically, door handles will eventually lose responsiveness and begin visibly sagging – marking forthcoming failure. Although superficial tightening can temporarily restore function occasionally, handle replacement is frequently the wisest recourse before total malfunction possibly compromises household security.

For correctly sized components meeting your special multipoint lock, consult specialists Sussex Double Glazing Repairs once drooping commences preventing emergency locksmith charges.

FAQs

Typical issues with UPVC doors include misalignment, difficulty locking, weather stripping wear, hinge problems, and surface damage like scratches or discolouration.

Repairing a UPVC door involves fixing specific parts such as hinges, locks, or seals, while replacing it means installing a completely new door. Repairs are usually less expensive and quicker, whereas replacements offer a brand-new look and functionality.

Yes, it is often possible to repair a crack in a UPVC door using specialised fillers and adhesives designed for UPVC material. For larger cracks, a professional may be needed to ensure a durable repair.

To fix a malfunctioning UPVC door lock, try lubricating the lock with graphite powder or a silicone-based lubricant. If that doesn’t work, check if the lock mechanism is misaligned and adjust the strike plate. For more complex issues, consider calling us.
