How to Tell Your UPVC Door & Window Locks Are Failing
While UPVC door & window locks malfunctions are common, you may be able to detect failures early on. These signs enable you to resolve the issue before it becomes worse and more costly. Here are a few things to look out for to determine if your UPVC door and window lock is failing:
- Handle Issues: The handle could be getting stiff, needing extra pressure to lift it. Sometimes, the handle could become loose, wobbly, or turn completely.
- Door Issues: The door could also become difficult to open and close. It could get jammed or start to feel shaky.
- Lock Issues: Several signs point to potential issues with the lock. Your lock could become stiff or turn completely. You might also start to hear an unusual clicking sound when you operate the mechanism.
Various factors can lead to these malfunctions. Sometimes, the underlying issue might be as simple as a misaligned door. Other times, the problem could be more serious, such as one or more of the lock’s internal parts being broken, seized, or frozen up.
Though you might be tempted to try and resolve the issue yourself, it is always best to let a qualified, well-trained, experienced professional handle it. Sometimes what might seem simple at first could end up needing complex repairs or replacements.
