Upvc door And Window repairs
At Alcatraz Edinburgh locksmiths we have performed hundreds, if not thousands of Upvc door and window repairs. We even repair the more modern composite doors on a daily basis. All this can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new door or window.
Unfortunately many people think when they have problems with their multi point locking doors and windows, it is time to replace them. However, going down this route can cost thousands of pounds – which is totally unnecessary.
Almost all Upvc doors and windows will require some kind of maintenance throughout their lifespan. These maintenance needs usually come about due to wear in tear, poor door alignment or a mechanical problem within the mechanism.
Most reported issues with Upvc doors
- Door cannot be locked as the handle wont go up.
- The key will only come out the lock when its is unlocked.
- Upvc door handles have went floppy.
- The Door is very stiff to open and close
- The door is hitting off the door frame when closing.
In the van we carry and extensive range of replacement parts, such as Yale doormaster mechanisms, temporary overnight locks, and gearboxes such as Era, Lockmaster, Fuhr, Winkhaus, Safeware, Fullex, GU, and Mila,
This means that most times we can strip out and replace the broken components in the same day.
In UPVC doors and windows it is usually the gearbox within the locking mechanism that breaks. This is a very simple fix and should take no longer than an hour to replace. If for whatever reason we do not have the part available for your door or window, we carry temporary repair kits so the property can be secured until returning with the part.
Emergency Upvc door repairs
We also provide an emergency service for customers who are locked in or out of their property, due to a failed mechanism.
Years of experience and countless different scenarios, means we are able to open a mechanism without damaging the door or the frame. We use methods such as Euro lock snapping and drilling underneath the Upvc door or window handle.
Sometimes we may have to wedge the door a few millimetres to manually open a mechanism. However this method is totally fine. If the door does move a little out of alignment we can easily realign the door by adjusting the door hinges.
