Fix Door Lock
If you cannot insert the key fully or it doesn’t turn properly, the problem is most probably with the cylinder. The first step of the repair involves opening the door without affecting the lock. The cylinder is then examined and tested. The failure could be the result of breaking or great wearing. Alternatively, the cylinder may have got out of sync. Replacing the cylinder is typically the most effective solution. When you can insert and turn the key as usual, but the door doesn’t get unlocked, the locking mechanism is most likely the culprit. If it's a bolt or hook that's jammed, you should know that the locking mechanism of UPVC door locks can be repaired. If the mechanism is broken, it has to be replaced. This gives you the opportunity to go for a more advanced and more secure device.
Broken UPVC Door
When a door doesn't properly close or lock it is usually the result of misalignment. This poses the need for checking the hinges. The lateral hinges and most modern butt hinges can be adjusted for aligning the door perfectly. This will make both closing and locking very smooth. If the hinges are worn, greatly damaged or broken, they have to be replaced. It’s also possible for the door to malfunction because of detached weather seals. Changing them should help to solve the problem completely. Even though the material is strong, the panels and frame may get scrapes, cracks and chips. Since damage brings down the security of the whole building, door and frame repair is required immediately.
