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.

Jay was magnificent in solving our sticky door lock problem. What we assumed was just needing a new barrel turned out to be a different problem altogether but through thorough inspection he identified the problem, drove a distance beyond Falkirk to get the necessary part, and came back next day to do the repair. Meantime, he created a temporary solution so we didn't have our door unlocked overnight. I would heartily recommend Saltire L&S, a first class job by a first class guy at an excellent price, and a three-year warranty thrown in (not by the manufacturer, by Saltire). Fantastic service!

We called Jay at short notice to come out to secure my step-dad's house, Jay was efficient, gave honest sound advice and left us with a secure, safe house. All locks are of British standard and comply with all the correct regulations. We highly recommend Jay and will definitely use him for any further repairs we need.

Contacted Jay as I had issues with my Son locking the kitchen door. After looking at it, he gave sound advice on what was wrong and what needed done to fix it. 45mins later and the work was done. Even had my Son test it out so I knew he could do it without any issues. Great price, great service; I most definitely recommend.
