Below, we explain why your door lock mechanism may be experiencing this problem.

Effects of Weather

When it comes to our uPVC door repairs, a common reason for door mechanism problems is changes in weather. As a material, uPVC can expand or contract if there are sudden changes between hot and cold weather. If your door is correctly aligned, there should be reasonable movement to maintain this tolerance for weather changes.

Door Alignment Issues

If you notice an issue with your door’s alignment, this will need to be adjusted to resolve the situation. Correcting the alignment may involve taking apart the locking mechanism from the door and removing any hinges or panels to apply the necessary tolerances for the door to function properly.

Please be warned, you shouldn’t attempt to complete door alignment work yourself as this a highly complex process. Local locksmiths C & S Locksmiths can perform door realignment work alongside our other core services, such as specialist key cutting, CCTV installations (CCTV system setup) and Ultion lock supply.


Other Reasons Your uPVC Door May Be Sticking

Besides the two main reasons for your door lock sticking, there may also be other issues at play. These include:

  • A lack of lubrication for the lock mechanism

  • A mechanism failure

  • Damages or faults with the hinges that can cause rubbing on the doorframe
