UPVC Lock Replacement
While highly durable, all UPVC lock systems are susceptible to deterioration over time. This often takes years to happen, meaning many homeowners don’t even realise their locks could be close to breaking!
As an experienced provider of UPVC locksmith services throughout Durham, we know the signs that your UPVC lock may need to be replaced. For example, the gearbox inside a UPVC lock system may be faulty, in which case we only need to replace this small component, saving the cost and hassle of a full lock replacement.
However, sometimes the internal mechanism of UPVC locks become rusted to the point of failure, meaning they will need to be replaced. Thankfully, we can quickly replace a full UPVC lock on any door, ensuring it does its job protecting your property.
You may also want to replace the UPVC lock system even if there are no obvious signs of damage. This is because many older UPVC doors use a euro cylinder barrel, which are less secure than other types of cylinders.
We can easily upgrade your old euro cylinder barrel to something more modern and secure, such as an anti-snap or anti-drill barrel. While more expensive, they offer unrivalled security.
