UPVC FAULTY WINDOW AND DOOR SPECIALIST

Lockforce Locksmiths in Chichester specialise in repairing and replacing faulty and broken parts on uPVC windows and doors.

There are various parts of a uPVC door that may become faulty, these include:

  • Multi Point Lock - This is the metal strip where all the locking points should move smoothly to enable the door to lock securely when the handle is lifted.
  • Euro Cylinder Locks - The key may snap or not turn, or even go into (or out of) the lock. We can replace, repair, service or upgrade these locks
  • Gearbox - When these become faulty, the usual symptoms are the handle is spinning or not depressing when unlocking the door.
  • Door Alignment - If your door is not closing smoothly, it may require realigning. Not realigning the door can cause undue stress on the locking points.
  • uPVC Windows - If your window will not open or close, we can repair the faulty parts, rather than cause destructive damage to the window itself.

Lockforce can carry out these repairs 99% of the time on the same day, keeping you safe and secure.

Problems with your uPVC door or windows? Contact Lee at Lockforce Locksmiths in Chichester today on 01243 252106

Moving House? Think About Your Locks

Have you just moved or about to move homes? At Lockforce Locksmiths in Chichester, we recommend that changing the locks on your external doors should be one of the first things you do.

Your family, furniture and personal belongings have been moved into this new property to make it your new home. Do you really want to risk someone else having a key to your doors? You will never know how many keys are in circulation, so don’t assume assume keys have been handed over to you. Please consider the following:

  • How many previous occupants has your new home had with these current locks?
  • Was it previously a rental property?
  • Have keys ever been given to tradesman or cleaner?
  • Has the property been looked after by a 3rd party (agency/friend)

Lockforce Locksmiths in Chichester can provide advice to meet the level of security you require. All our locks that we supply and fit, will meet home insurance requirements, British Standards and Police recommendations.

Have you moved to a new property in or around Chichester? Would you like to make your home safe against anyone else having keys? Call Lee on 01243 252106

HOME INSURANCE

Do you ever read the small print? Most of us don’t. But as a homeowner, you should be aware that most insurance companies stipulate that your locks need to be insurance approved and meet British Standard (BS3621). Do you know if you have insurance approved locks on your doors? If not, your home insurance may be invalid and any claims can be refused! British Standard locks provide a high level of security to protect your family and home.

Lockforce Locksmiths in Chichester supply insurance approved British Standard locks and also Anti Snap cylinder locks to protect you against a break-in.

To see if your locks are British Standard, look for the kite mark on your lock (see pics below).

25th October 2018

Job - Lockforce Locksmiths Chichester received a call from a customer to say their key had snapped whilst trying to get into their house and to make matters worse, they did not have access to their rear door either. 

Solution - I looked at all the options to open the door. The customer informed that the wooden door had become quite stiff recently and they have to force the door open. So after spending a considerable amount of time trying to open the door non-destructively, I drilled the lock and opened the rear door. I then installed a new mortise lock and re-aligned the door. 

15th October 2018 - Job - Customer’s front door was stuck closed

Problem - Customer rang Lockforce Locksmiths Chichester to say her front door latch was stuck, but she has alternative access to the house, so it is not an emergency. 

Solution - As the latch was internally broken a new lock was required. The customer supplied me with a new BS3621night latch they wanted to be fitted. So I removed the existing cylinder and latch and replaced the lock, with just a few minor woodwork alterations. The door shut nice and smoothly and the customer was very happy!

I phoned with an emergency situation today and Lee Dray turned up to me within 30 minutes as he told me he would. He was brilliant. Lee prioritised the job as it was urgent. He did what he could there and then and returned to complete the job the same afternoon once he had found the part needed. Polite, efficient and friendly. Highly recommend this man and company to others.

Nick Soley

We found Lee to be very knowledgeable and professional. We required a number of different services this included locks for our metal windows, bolts for our glass doors and replacement of Ultion locks to other doors. The jobs were undertaken on time, quick and tidy. We would have no hesitation recommending Lee to anyone. We called a number of other locksmiths in our area and when we mentioned metal windows they all refused to help.. But not Lee... Thanks again Lee for a great job The new Ultion locks are great and give us peace of mind.
