A door made of plastic may have the same problems as a window sash, starting with sagging of fittings and ending with damage to the glass unit. A distinctive feature of a UPVC door is the increased weight, area and perimeter, along which it should fit snugly against the frame. Most often, door manufacturers use the same profiles as window sashes, so the probability of its malfunction is higher than that of a UPVC window.
If your door does not open and close properly, or damaged, contact us right now. Our craftsmen are always ready to fix plastic structures and various lock types. We will quickly restore the door to a working condition, carry out repair of any complexity, replace the glass units and fittings, install a new lock and eliminate the sagging.
Although it is called a balcony UPVC door, it often serves as an entrance door. The most common examples of use are on the ground floors in private houses from the courtyard side, and very often they can be found at the entrance to shops, banks and other premises that are located on the first floors. In such cases, the door is made of plastic because it is a more durable material and is better suited for active use.
On any UPVC door, you can put a child safety lock to increase reliability. We can help you with this as well. Compared to a window, UPVC door bears more load. Therefore, timely maintenance will extend the service life of the structure and help to avoid serious costs. The main types of work include:
The specialists of our company will quickly and efficiently eliminate malfunctions, replace worn-out fittings and restore the correct operation of UPVC products.
Locking mechanism replacement in UPVC door
Single-point lock mechanisms have fixation only in the handle area. As a rule, they are used indoors or in cases where tightness is not required. Multi-point locking devices come with a clamp along the perimeter of the frame; most often installed in country houses and cottages.
In the event of mechanical damage of the door mechanism, you will most likely have to replace it, since the design of many models doesn’t provide for disassembly of the casing. We are often asked to replace a single-point model with a multi-point mechanism to improve heat insulation.
Handle replacement on UPVC door
The handle is an important element of the door, thanks to which its main function is carried out. On plastic products, depending on the nature and purpose of the room, the following can be used:
Replacement of the handle may be required due to natural wear and deterioration in appearance, the presence of mechanical damage, as well as for decorative purposes. In our warehouse, various types of handles are always available, so the replacement work is carried out as soon as possible.
Hinges replacement of UPVC door
Normal functioning of the structure also depends on the proper operation of hinges. The hinge is the link between the frame and the UPVC door; it bears the main load during opening and closing. Therefore, special requirements are imposed on its strength, reliability and durability. The hinges contain adjustment screws used to regulate the position horizontally, vertically and frontally.
In most cases, problems with hinges are associated with their poor quality or excessively high load. As a rule, there is only one solution, and that is to replace them with high-quality, time-tested reliable hinges from well-known manufacturers.
IS IT WORTH REPAIRING A DOOR YOURSELF?
In simple cases, for example, if you need to lubricate the UPVC door, clean visible parts of the lock mechanism from dirt, or readjust one element of the system, then yes, you can probably accomplish these tasks on your own.
But the situation is not always so simple and not always self-repair helps to eliminate the malfunction of the lock mechanism; after a few days or weeks, it may appear again. Therefore, we advise you to call a repairman for UPVC door lock repalcement. This will be a guarantee of a good result and inexpensive, especially when compared with purchasing a new door.
The repair won’t take a long time, and the master will also carry out preventive maintenance, which will help to avoid troubles in the future. Also, the repairman has all the necessary lock parts and tools at hand.
