Today, double glazing windows and doors are quite advanced and have joints on the uPVC frame for standard or bespoke jobs. Throughout their lives, uPVC frames have to move frequently and over time can become out of alignment to prevent multi locks from working and the opening to close properly. Adjustments are required by a professional fitter to keep your windows and doors functional.
Where a locking mechanism has been neglected due to lack of adjusting, it can cause the single or a multi lock to become defective or wear out sooner. The cost of fixing it is much higher than paying for a simple adjustment and will require replacement parts, such as barrels, door cylinder, lock keeps or the whole unit. A locksmith sent out for an inspection will check the damage and provide a quote for the replacement uPVC locking part you require. See lock types below:
- Multipoint locks
- Key operated security bolts
- Euro Cylinder locks
- Mortice lever locks
