uPVC Door Repairs

Our Locksmiths are trained to work on problems that occur on all types of doors including high security commercial doors as well as uPVC Doors. Over time doors can develop a number of faults that are better dealt with sooner than later to avoid further damage, complications or that compromise your security. Don't leave yourself vulnerable with a faulty lock where there is difficulty turning the key or an issue with the actual locking process. We will come out and repair or replace the lock. Handles on external and internal doors can get worn or damaged and show this by becoming flimsy or stuck in position. It might just be a broken spring but can indicate there is a problem elsewhere with the multipoint locking system, central locking mechanism or the gearbox that fits onto the mechanism strip. We are happy to come out to assess the problem and advise a solution with a free no obligation quote for the job. Hinges are an important part of keeping a door aligned with the frame for example Composite doors are heavy and if not fitted properly can put pressure on the hinges causing the door to drop. Misaligned Doors will not open or shut easily and draughts will come through the gaps, not great for energy efficiency. Our Locksmiths in Allestree can work on door frames, realign the hinges and re-hang the door if necessary. Broken or damaged uPVC Door Panels can be removed and replaced as can the Glass inserts saving you the cost of a new door. If you have a door that needs help getting back to good working order and would like a free no obligation quote with no hidden extras, give us a call, send an email or request that we call you back.

Key snapped in the lock or faulty window locks can all be replaced. A common fault with windows are the hinges that can wear or sustain damage through force if the window doesn't shut easily.
