In the past, UPVC door locks were not considered to be the most reliable, but now that the technology behind them is much more advanced,they provide a higher level of security to homes and commercial buildings. Reliable and durable, these locksets and doors are a great choice. However, like any mechanism, you need to make sure they are in a good condition in order to maintain high security level.
If the cylinder or the bolt malfunctions, this is a sign of a serious issue that requires your attention. When the key can't get in the keyway or is very difficult to turn, this is usually due to broken or worn cylinder. The component is replaced so that the entire lockset can work properly again. When the bolt is jammed, it is released and its operation is tested. If the test reveals that the internal mechanism no longer works, a new lockset will be set into place.
The replacement of a lock is required not only when the damage is beyond repair. If the device is extensively worn or greatly outdated, rekeying will not help for restoring security to its optimal level. New lock installation will be needed. It is best if the new device has multipoint mechanism with bolts and/or hooks. While roller and mushroom cams were quite popular in the past, they do not offer sufficiently high level of protection. You can rest assured the cylinder of the new lockset will be resistant to snapping and picking.
There are a lot of things that can go wrong with the door and not just with the lockset. The most common types of damage to the panel and frame include scratches, cracks, dents and chips. They can be fixed with the use of appropriate techniques. When the hinges are loose, damaged or broken, they have to be fixed or replaced. Only then, the door can be adjusted to fit the frame.
