UPVC door locks / UPVC lock repairs / Faulty UPVC door

Even though composite, or rock doors as they are also known, can look as if they are wooden they usually contain the same locks as a UPVC door. As like all things, your UPVC or composite door lock / patio door lock or barrel can fail. This is usually identified when the key is no longer turning in the lock or it is spinning in the lock but not locking or unlocking the door. Key Qualities Locksmiths in Liverpool can identify the issue and change faulty euro cylinders and gain entry day or night to a property in which the lock has failed. Our emergency locksmith can then replace your lock with an anti-snap lock or standard lock depending on your preference and budget.

When it comes to a problem with UPVC door locks it is not usually viable to carry out a lock repair. This is because the cost of repairing would usually cost the same or more as the locksmith replacing the lock with a new one. Instead of carrying out a lock repair it is easier to fit a new lock as this method could save you money in the long run and prevent a future fault. It is also always a good opportunity to upgrade your home security with a British standard lock. Replacing the lock can serve as a lock upgrade. Our locksmiths in Liverpool are constantly amending the stock they carry to the most up to date and latest lock innovations that are available in the market.
