In homes across the country, including in Essex and the surrounding area. Not only do they look great, they are effective security devices for any property. These doors are built to withstand all sorts of day-to-day wear and tear, demanding little in the way of maintenance or repair. That is not to say they don’t run into the occasional problem. Like all doors, the locks on a uPVC model get put through their paces more than any other component, being locked and unlocked dozens of times in any given week. It is no wonder that they sometimes fail.

As your local and reliable uPVC lock repair specialists, we have much to offer our customers in Essex. Here is what you can expect from us.
Broken Keys in uPVC Locks
One of the most common situations we are called out to is when a customer has accidentally broken their key off in the lock, or inserted the wrong key, which is now stuck. Fortunately for our Essex customers, we have the tools and experience to remove these from the lock. Normally this can be done without damaging the lock.
If you insert your key into your uPVC lock and find that it no longer catches, the reason is usually that locking mechanism has been worn down through use. Most of the time, it is a specific part of the lock – the multipoint locking gearbox – that needs replacing. This means the rest of the lock can remain intact.
uPVC doors tend to be rather heavy items and can sometimes drop on their hinges a little. Unfortunately, this means that the points where the door bolts meet with the jamb are no longer aligned, meaning they do not lock properly. As professional locksmiths, we can easily reset your door to get both sides lining up again.
A common concern with older models of uPVC door is the type of lock installed. The standard euro cylinder lock barrel is susceptible to ‘lock snapping’, a common way for would-be burglars to break into a home. By upgrading your uPVC door lock to an anti-snap lock is a quick and simple way to resolve this.
