Over time, the locking mechanism on your uPVC door may experience issues, resulting in difficulties opening or locking the door. Fortunately, this doesn’t always require replacing the entire door.
At SF Locksmiths, we offer a solution to our customers in Barnsley by replacing the faulty parts with authentic, original materials. By doing so, we can help you save significant costs, potentially amounting to hundreds of pounds. Rest assured, this approach will restore your existing door to its former condition, both in terms of functionality and feel.
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 Barnsley 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 often receive inquiries regarding our methods for opening locked doors. We want to assure you that we possess the necessary expertise and tools to accomplish this task without causing any damage to your door or its components, including hinges, glass units, or panels. Once the door is successfully opened, we will replace the faulty mechanism with genuine original materials, ensuring that your door functions as well as, if not better than, when it was initially purchased.
In addition, our repair service encompasses a comprehensive door service and check-up, all included in the cost. It is worth noting that misalignment is a common cause of lock failure, as it results in the locking points exerting pressure against the door frame keeps. This misalignment can lead to increased strain on the door handle during 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 Barnsley customers and can often have your door repaired on the same day you call. And yes, we will arrive at the agreed upon time.
Fantastic service, very friendly guy and very quick call out. Would definitely recommend to others and although we hope not to see you again soon hahaha, we’ll certainly keep in mind for any future issues! Thanks again!!
