Don't replace your uPVC doors, repair them
uPVC doors are locked by means of a multipoint lock. This is usually operated by you lifting the handle and then locking this mechanism solid via turning the key.
If you visit a double glazing installer with your door problem, their reply can often be that the parts required are no longer available. This could be true, but in nearly every case we will have an alternative multipoint lock in stock. The alternative lock will give you at least the same level of security, or even increase it with the upgraded version.
Our specialist lock mechanism suppliers have the largest range of multipoints locks available in Europe and our mobile workshop is stocked to be able to complete 99% of call-outs on the initial visit.
How can SF Locksmiths can save you money?
Possibly the most important question! A new uPVC door, of reasonable quality, can cost from £700 including fitting, and up to £1200 for the higher quality doors - and possibly even more if there are side panels, windows or lead inserts.
An approximate cost to replace the multipoint lock is between £130- £170. This will cover the materials and labour and includes a complete door service. If the door handles have seen better days, these can also be replaced along with the existing barrel. The charge for these will be minimal and are often incorporated into the original quote. Another major benefit is that we would expect our replacement lock fitted to your door to last approximately 10-12 years.
The potential savings to our customers are therefore considerable.
