Patio Doors, Internal Doors, BiFold Doors, Sliding Doors, Fire Doors and French Doors in fact we will have a solution for repairing any type of door old or new. One of the most common problems with doors is Misalignment. This is usually caused by the hinges that have aged, rusted, been misused, are the wrong hinges for the door or over time can no longer hold the weight of the door. Composite doors are the heaviest of the doors and have a thickness of 44mm as opposed to the thickness of a uPVC Door which goes up to 28mm demonstrating that hinges are not interchangeable between different door types and need to be able to hold and spread the weight of the door in order to prevent door drop. Left without attention, Misalignment of uPVC Doors will also cause problems with the lock, the gearbox and the handle so the earlier it is corrected the better. Sagging uPVC handles can be caused by an internal spring, the incorrect spindle length or a failed component in a handle that has previously worked well. Problems with uPVC Door Locks, particularly an external door should not be left without attention to avoid leaving your home vulnerable to unauthorized access.

uPVC Window Repairs
Our Locksmiths in Oadby are trained in all aspects, including both Doors and Windows. uPVC Window locks can develop faults too through the locking mechanism or the gearbox that sits in the centre of the window lock on the long metal plate as they are both activated by the handle which is probably where you will first become aware of an issue. Have you got a handle that moves but won’t lock? We are able to diagnose faults throughout the locking system, if it isn’t immediately obvious such as a Key Snapped in the Lock. Draughty Windows can be caused by Misalignment where adjustment or replacement of the hinges is required or by Faulty Seals that can be replaced. Condensation or misting in the Double Glazing can be rectified by replacing and resealing the glass saving you the cost of a whole new window unit. Espagnolette type Handles are identified by the spindle that extends out from the handle to join up with the Locking System and most commonly found on uPVC Windows. The Inline Handle is straight and moves left or right and the Cranked Handle comes in a right or left handed version. An older version of handle is the Cockspur handle also with a left or right handed option has a spur that positions onto a wedge instead of a spindle.
