Repairs to uPVC Doors

uPVC doors now account for a large proportion of the modern day locksmiths work. Certainly in Ilford the majority of doors are now uPVC type.

They are also very finicky in extreme hot and cold weather due to the expanison and contraction of the plastic in the door, the new composite doors less so.

If a dor lock has become stiff or operates poorly it may need adjusting to remove strain from the meshing internal parts. Continual forcing will eventually lead to the lock failing.

A replacement locking strip is considerably more expensive than the cost of a door adjustment and service.

If you think your door may need seeing to and you live in or near Ilford then please call Hugo Locksmiths, specialists in uPVC door repairs.
