Over time, the locking mechanism on your uPVC door may fail, leaving you unable to open or lock the door. However, this does not necessarily mean that you need to replace the entire door.
At SF Locksmiths we can help our customers in Rotherham save hundreds of pounds by replacing the faulty parts with genuine original materials. This will leave your existing door feeling and functioning like new again.
The mechanism that locks and secures a uPVC door is called a “multipoint lock” or mpl for short. To operate the mpl, you lift the door handle and turn the key to lock it in place. While these locks work great when new, they can fail after years of use. On average, they last for around 10-12 years.
Our company has specialised in uPVC door repairs in Rotherham since 1980, and we only focus on repairing doors instead of selling new ones. If you were to visit a double glazing installer with a door problem, they might tell you that the required parts are no longer available. Although this could be true, we can usually provide an alternative multipoint lock that will offer the same level of security or an upgraded anti-snap lock that will enhance the security of your current door. We’re fortunate to have three suppliers with the largest selection of multi-point locks available in Europe, and our mobile workshop is equipped to handle 99% of call-outs on the first visit.
As experienced locksmiths, we frequently receive inquiries about how we will open a locked door. Rest assured that we have the necessary tools and expertise to do so without damaging your door or any of its components such as hinges, glass units, or panels. Once the door is open, we will replace the faulty mechanism with genuine original materials to ensure that your door operates just like it did when it was first purchased, if not better.
Our repair service also includes a comprehensive door service and check-up as part of the cost. Misalignment is often the primary reason for lock failure, as it causes the locking points to press against the door frame keeps and can lead to increased pressure on the door handle when locking and unlocking.
We believe we can repair any type of uPVC door, including patio doors, conservatory doors, tilt & slide doors, and others. We have extensive knowledge of the various mechanisms used in doors, such as those manufactured by GU, Advocet, Mila, Fuhr, Millenco, Fullex, Ferco, Yale, Winkhaus, ERA, and more.
We keep these mechanisms in stock and can supply and fit them on the same day we attend your property. It doesn’t matter who installed your door or how old it is, feel free to contact us for a complimentary quote.
The cost of a new uPVC or composite door, including installation, can vary greatly, typically ranging from £600 to £1,500. However, companies such as Everest, Anglian, and Safestyle may charge even more and may also try to sell you new windows or pester you with marketing calls and flyers.
In contrast, replacing your door’s multipoint lock (mpl) with a genuine, original version can cost between £160 and £200, including all materials and labour. This repair should last an additional 10-12 years and comes with a two-year guarantee. After replacing the mpl, we’ll give your door a full service and check for any other issues.
If you also need to replace the door handles or lock barrel, we can do this at the same time, usually at a minimal additional cost included in the original quote.
We understand that the situation can be stressful and inconvenient, our mobile locksmith services include replacing faulty mechanisms, parts, locks, and handles for the benefit of our Rotherham customers and can often have your door repaired on the same day you call. And yes, we will arrive at the agreed upon time.
