Composite Door Draught Fix
A correctly installed Composite Door should not be draughty and if you are hearing a whistle or feeling a draught or worst case scenario, witness the door rattling in the frame, you need a professional to come and assess the problem. Maybe the weatherproof seals have worn and need replacing, the hinges are not adequate enough to support the weight, the door was incorrectly fitted into a former uPVC frame, or when you look at the door, it just doesn't seem to sit right. Any one of these examples could indicate a misalignment issue. Our professional team of Composite Door Repair engineers will quickly be able to identify the problem and have effective solutions to rectify the alignment. The part most connected to supporting the door is the hinge and a Composite Door is solid and weighty. Our stock of hinges supplied by branded makes such as Avocet, Mila, Fab & Fix and Roto will evenly distribute weight, prevent door drop and are security tested ensuring the door fits snugly into the frame as a Composite Door should. So the answer is no, your Composite Door should definitely not be draughty and if it is, we are more than happy to come out, assess it and advise on a repair solution that will rectify the problem.

Faulty Composite Door Handle
If the handle on your Composite Door is not working, that is going to compromise overall security. A sticky handle could mean a problem with the latch. The position of the latch is determined by the handle via the spindle and the latch joins the door to the frame by sliding a bolt into a slot already pre-set into the door frame. It is the spindle that connects the Handles on either side of the door and if the handle doesn't automatically return to its original position that could indicate a problem with the spindle. Of course, the problem could be one of age or wear and tear on the springs. Wherever possible we would repair the handle instead of replacing it however, in the case of wear and tear or age or maybe because you decide you would like to change the handle, we do stock a wide variety of stylish handles that would complement any Composite Door in contemporary, traditional or modern designs available in different colours and finishes all with a 12 month guarantee for you to choose from. We are available 24 hours a day for any problems with Door Handles which the team will deal with quickly and efficiently.
Faulty Composite Door Lock
Multipoint Locks are commonly found on Composite Doors where a combination of Rollers and Hooks are locked into a minimum of 3 multiple points by the handle which secures the door to the frame and is key operated by a Cylinder Lock. There are many metal parts that make up a Multipoint Lock such as the Hook, Deadbolt, Roller Cam, Mushroom Cam, Fingerbolt, Centre Latch and the Anti Lift Pin and Hook and these can be used to make up different lock combinations. The lock will stop working if there is a problem with any of the parts within the lock sometimes just from the metal to metal contact that can occur over a period of time. Other problems that you may need help with are if the key snaps in the lock, you have lost the keys and need to replace the lock or you have locked yourself out. The standard replacement lock we fit is the Ts007 Anti Snap Euro Cylinder that has the additional features of being Anti-Pick and Anti-Drill combined with a 3* rating is an excellent partner for the Multipoint Lock. Having a non functioning lock on a Composite Door is a priority that demands immediate attention so don't think twice about giving us a call. Our professional Locksmiths are available night and day and will sort out any lock issues on your Composite Door.

Composite Door vs uPVC Door
A Composite Door is an excellent choice if you are thinking of upgrading your uPVC Door. The multilayered materials including core foam insulation that make up the composition of a Composite door are compressed under extremely high pressure conditions that produces a thickness of 44mm whereas a uPVC Door is made of a single material known as Unplasticized Polyvinyl Plastic which has a thickness of 28mm. Both doors are able to withstand most weather conditions but the Composite Door can shield against the worst of weather conditions. Both Doors are secure however the Composite Door at almost double the thickness provides increased security and is more energy efficient. The designs and colours of the Composite Door have advanced a long way from the 1990's now available to suit Contemporary, Traditional and Cottage Style Homes and if you like to be a bit different you can choose from the designer range. So to sum up if you are thinking of upgrading from a uPVC Door, Composite Doors are the perfect combination of strength and style, they are stronger than uPVC Doors, they effectively reduce outside noise, the multi layers of material make them extremely energy efficient and they have the look of a natural Timber Door but with none of the issues.
