Leeds uPVC Door & Window Locks Specialist
uPVC Door & Window Lock Repairs in Leeds
Warrior Locksmith, uPVC specialist, is fully equipped to deal with the majority of uPVC door locking issues that may arise. From adjusting your door to making sure it locks properly to replacing your entire locking strip if it fails, we can help.
With the majority of doors in the UK now being uPVC, and many of them having been fitted some years ago, then it is clear that they will encounter some issues. They may have been fitted slightly out of alignment when first done, and then then the issue will have got worse and worse over time. There are a lot of delicate metal parts in the uPVC door mechanisms that can only take so much wear and tear. The majority of doors will need a service from time to time to keep them working as they should and give you years more use.
The worst-case scenario is coming home and finding that your multipoint locking mechanism has failed and you are locked out. We have dealt with many of these situations, and you can rest assured that we will regain access and get you back inside your home with minimum fuss.
We carry a great number of replacement uPVC door parts, so can generally have your door back to working like new in no time. If it’s a part that we haven’t got in stock, then we will fit a temporary lock so that you can still lock your door until the replacement arrives.
In some cases, the mechanism for your door will be obsolete and no direct replacement will be available, but there’s no need to panic; we deal with many suppliers that can recommend the closest match to your mechanism and, with a few adjustments, we’ll soon have your door back to full working order.
Struggling to lock your uPVC door?
If you have a uPVC door that just doesn’t seem right, and you are struggling to lock or unlock it, why not give us a call before you find yourself locked in or out of your home? It may only take a few minor adjustments to get your door back to a fully functional standard.
If you are having to force the handle up as hard as possible to get your door locked or you can hear a crunching sound, then we really do recommend getting it looked at, as there’s a high possibility that the more strain you put on the locking mechanism, the more likely it is to fail completely, leaving you out in the cold. A uPVC door service could be all it takes you get your door working as it should.
If it does fail, then don’t despair. It doesn’t mean you need a new door, which would be costly. Many of the doors that were fitted when uPVC doors first became popular have mechanisms that are obsolete. In such cases, we can retrofit a more modern mechanism, and keep your door safe and secure.
Simply give Warrior Locksmith Leeds a call, and we can get the mechanism replaced and get your door working like new again.
Locks for uPVC doors
Have you just got yourself a new uPVC/composite door? If so, then Warrior Locksmiths would recommend having it checked to make sure it is of a good standard.
Many modern doors have great locking mechanisms in them with many locking points; however, any door is only as secure as its lock, so paying a small fortune for a new door and then having a sub-standard lock in it defeats the purpose.
The minimum level of security Warrior Locksmith recommends is a snap-safe lock, as the majority of break-ins in Leeds and the UK are via the lock-snapping method. We are more than happy to come and check your locks to make sure you’re happy with the level of security you have.
We fit snap-safe locks as standard, but we also supply and fit one of the most secure locks on the market today, which is the Ultion lock. Take a look at our Ultion page if you are interested in having the Ultion lock fitted, and don’t hesitate to get in contact so we can give you a quotation.
