What types of problems can your Leicester Locksmiths solve?
The Leicester Locksmith team come across many uPVC related problems every day and here we have a list of the most common problems that we come across on a daily basis.
Doors not closing properly
this is a common problem that we come across all the time especially in the summer months when the heat can actually warp the door in such a way that the door will not close in the frame. Using our specialist adjustment tools we can remedy this problem and have your door closing smoothly again.
Jammed multipoint locking mechanisms
A Jammed up multipoint locking system can occur through lack of maintenance, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the mechanism has failed but may however need a full service carrying out. By a full service we mean that we will strip down the lock to its various components and check that all components are working correctly then lubricate said components and replaced worn or damaged ones.
Failed multipoint lock gearboxes
This is a very common issue on these locks and usually occurs if the door is not aligned correctly causing excess strain on the gearbox. It can also happen through lack on maintenance and or harsh use by the operator. What ever the cause our Leicester locksmiths can fix the problem and our van are fully stocked with all the brands of gearboxes to be able to replace failed parts.
Failed euro cylinders
We come across failed euro cylinders on a day to day basis. This may be because the cylinder that came with your door is a very cheap brand and wont last very long being used by a busy family every single day, or it could even be that the operator of the lock has damaged it through misuse. The Leicester locksmiths team carry every size of these cylinders on the vans so that we always have the correct size for your door. We also fit anti pick and anti drip locks as standard. If you would like to upgrade your locks to high security anti snap locks we can also give you a free quote for this also.
Broken uPVC door handles are an issue that mainly occurs due to harsh use but can sometimes just be a sign of wear and tear due to the age of the handle set. These handles come in a large variety of sizes and colours, and the correct size must always me used to avoid damage to other components in the locking system.
uPVC doors themselves aren’t that heavy but when you have large glass panels installed into these doors then the weight can soon take its toll on the hinges and cause the door to sag, again causing closing issues and also locking system failure. We carry specialist adjustment tools for this very job and can have your door back in the correct position in no time.
