Know the signs

Over the years, we've encountered various problems with uPVC doors, from deteriorating locks to misalignment and draughty doors. 

While it might be tempting to 'make do' and ignore the issues, it's important to remember that thieves can easily exploit any weakness in your doors. There's also a chance that leaving the problem will only worsen, meaning a complete uPVC door replacement is your only option.

If you live in the Barnsley area, we recommend contacting us about uPVC door repairs as soon as you notice a problem. This is an inexpensive and effective way of dealing with whatever the issue might be while avoiding the need for a complete replacement.

uPVC door lock replacement

Most uPVC doors have a multipoint locking system, where you lift the handle and turn the key. This can quickly become jammed over time, or the parts might begin to deteriorate if they are of a low enough quality.

In many cases, the problems you are having with your door are caused by this mechanism not operating as it should. In this case, we would remove the multipoint lock and replace it with a new one that meets British Standards.

If the cylinder needs changing, you will receive new keys to your door, but it is not always necessary. Be safe, knowing that it is much more secure than it was previously. It will also mean you avoid paying for a brand-new uPVC door, which will likely save you hundreds of pounds.

Addressing problems with hinges

Another issue we often find with uPVC doors is that they must be aligned. If this happens, we can easily adjust the hinges or repack the door panels so the doors—and the locking mechanism—can meet up properly.

It can be tempting to get the doors replaced, but this way, you can continue to use them for many more years without the expense of the inconvenience.

A reputation of great customer service

I made enquiries with a couple of people but Stephen was very friendly, quick to respond and very flexible. I also was impressed with his website and reviews. When he came to do the work he was fast, tidy and did a brilliant (and really reasonably priced) job. I can't fault Stephen's friendly approach and warm demeanor.
