Unlocking UPVC or Composite Doors

Basic cylinder locks on uPVC doors can be easy to unlock, but high security anti-snap locks require specialist tools and training to access.

Wood doors can be quick to unlock and sometimes have two locks. Opening two locks will take longer and may need to be replaced.

Replacing Lost Key Cost

The cost to replace keys depends on how many locks will need to be replaced in the home. SheffLOCK recommend replacing the lock if you have lost your keys.

Upvc Door realignment

£60 inc. VAT

SH-DOIn stock

Upvc door realignment may need to be looked at some time after installation as the house and doors adjust with use & temperature.

When the misalignment reaches an excessive stage wear to the central gearbox becomes evident, e.g. the handles become loose and floppy (most people assume that the spring has strained in the handles at this stage)

All of this will result in one of the following three scenarios:

  • The door is open and will not physically close
  • The door will close but it will be impossible to lift the handles and lock the door
  • The door is locked or unlocked closed but will not open

Any issues that arise whilst working on alignment issues, will carry costs for repair or replacement.
