uPVC Door Repairs Gloucester

uPVC doors are renowned for at some point failing. There can be many reasons that you may have an issue with a UPVC door. The door can become difficult to open or close, difficult to lock or unlock, if you are experiencing any of these issues then we can help.

uPVC Door Adjustment

Often when a door is stiff to lock, it is usually a case of adjusting the door slightly to get the lock working smoothly again. It is common for uPVC doors to drop slightly on the opening edge of the door due to the weight of the glass in the door. This is a quick fix and not very costly, we simply adjust the door to get it working properly again for you.

If the door fails to lock, even trying it in the open position, then it would probably require a new gearbox to be fitted to the locking system of the door. We stock a wide range of gearboxes in our van, which enables us to complete most of our jobs on the first visit.

We can replace the key lock (euro cylinder) and can cut extra keys if required. These euro cylinders can also conform to British Standards which most insurance companies require for your insurance policy to be valid.

uPVC Door Handles

We carry a full range of handles in different sizes, styles and colours (brass, white, chrome & black).

We get asked to repair handles on uPVC doors, but it’s usually a matter of replacing them – or the spindle that connects them to the locking system. We also stock the LockLock handles that are British Standard approved, adding extra security to the door. You could have handles that may be drooping down and not returning back to their horizontal position as they used to do. This can sometimes be rectified with new spring packs that go inside some handles – otherwise we can just replace the handles to fix the fault.
