Tilt and slide door repairs in Rotherham

5th November 2013

Tilt and slide doors in Rotherham were a popular choice many years ago. These doors have often never received a service during their use! This means that there is a chance that now they are not so easy to operate or have developed a problem.

SF Locksmith is the leading specialist in tilt and slide door repairs in Rotherham and carry a wealth of knowledge in how to fix these patio doors. 

The most common problems are:

The drive gear fails which is opearted by rotating the handle. This in turn operates the locking points around the edge of the door and this is what holds the door shut. If this fails the door will remain locked but secure or open and obviously not secure! 

The gliders wear out on the top of the door. These help to hold the sliding door in position when being opened and closed. The 1st you usually know about this is when the door falls from the top. 

At the bottom the door slides back and forth on what we term a bottom bogey. This can be a problem with the closing if it gets out of alignment and break if not cared for. 

Can they be repaired?

The great news is yes. And at a fraction of the cost of a replacement door. 

All you need to do is call us and arrange an appointment. With a little information on the phone we will be able to give a guide price before we attend for the repair if you require. 

Our work comes with a lengthy guarantee and only genuine parts are sourced unless they are discontinued. Even when this is the case we will still only fit branded materials rather than a cheap copy. 

Tilt and slide door handle repairs and replacement are also available. If a key has snapped or been lost then we have a selection of replacement handles available to replace your existing one.
