What are the Benefits of a Composite Door?
It is common for all doors to be affected by thermal distortion where the sun shines on the door all day especially affecting south facing doors causing problems with opening and closing the door so it is a good idea to take note of the season that your Composite Door is fitted and in summer ensure that enough room is left to accommodate for the swell. Is your door the right size for the frame? Composite Doors should be fitted into their own bespoke frame to ensure a completely sealed unit that is snug and tight to all the rubber seals, if not, problems can occur because of this and a wrong size door will struggle to cope with seasonal changes. Warping Problems can be caused by not pushing the handle up to engage the bottom locks for maximum support and security or repeatedly leaving the door on the latch. Most exterior doors have a built-in drainage system with slots and holes in the bottom of the door. These holes in the bottom of the door can become blocked which could be the cause of a door that is Bowing. Any issues with a Composite Door can be quickly identified and put right by our expert team of fitters so call us at anytime for a same day appointment or schedule in a date and time convenient to you. We keep all customers updated with an arrival time on the day and give you the name of the technician attending from Composite Door Repairs Leicestershire.
The Hinge is the part most connected to supporting the door and the compressed materials of a Composite door produces a thickness of 44mm so Composite Doors are heavy. whereas a uPVC Door made of a single material known as Unplasticized Polyvinyl Plastic has a thickness of 28mm so if the hinges fitted are not the correct ones and cannot support and spread the weight to prevent door drop, the door will become misaligned. Misaligned doors can cause problems with all the other functioning parts of the door so problems are best dealt with sooner rather than later. Does your Composite Door let in a draught, rattle in the frame or just doesn’t seem to sit right? then you need a professional to come and take a look. We only stock Hinges supplied by trusted brands such as Avocet, Era, Mila, Fab&Fix and Roto that will ensure the correct hinge for the door type, evenly distribute the weight, prevent door drop and are security tested ensuring the door fits snugly into the frame. Don’t panic, just call us at anytime to get one of our friendly team straight to your door and let our Professional Composite Door Repair Team in Leicestershire provide a solution for all your Composite Door Problems.
The Lock isn’t working on my Composite Door
Key Operated Euro Cylinder Locks are commonly found on Composite Doors and working in conjunction with them are Multipoint Locks. Multipoint Locks secure the door to the frame by a series of Hooks and Rollers which lock into a minimum of 3 multiple points when the handle is lifted. Although there are various security levels of Cylinder Lock on the market, the standard replacement lock we fit is the 3* Ts007 Anti Snap Euro Cylinder Lock with additional Anti-Pick and Anti-Drill features making it an excellent partner for the Multipoint Lock fitted with a 5 year warranty and a set of 3 keys. The Multipoint Lock can be affected by a misaligned door affecting the function of the lock which can be made up of different lock combinations such as a Hook, Deadbolt, Roller Cam, Mushroom Cam, Fingerbolt, Centre Latch and an Anti Lift Pin. It is important for those parts to line up seamlessly for the door to provide effective security when closed. Locks where debris has built up over time can cause a Lock to become sticky and ultimately jam. Faults within the Locking System or the Gearbox will cause a fault with the lock but all can be replaced. For any Lock problem on your Composite Door we would class it as a priority call demanding immediate attention from one of our Professional Locksmiths in Leicestershire so don’t think twice about giving us a call.
The Handle isn’t working on my Composite Door
If there is a single part on a door that brings everything together, it is the Handle and creates a compromise to your security if it isn’t working properly. The door is joined to the frame via a Latch which slides a bolt into a preset slot and a Handle that is sticking could mean a fault with the latch. A spindle connects the Handles on either side of the door and the position of the latch is determined by the handle via the spindle so if the handle doesn’t automatically return to its original position, that could indicate a problem with the spindle. As with any moving part wear and tear will cause issues over time but we will always try to repair a handle fault rather than just replace it however should you want to take the opportunity to replace or upgrade the Handle, we do stock a wide variety of stylish handles in modern, contemporary and traditional designs available in different shades and finishes all with a 12 month guarantee that would complement any Composite Door. We are available 24 hours a day for any problems with Door Handles which our team are experienced in dealing with quickly and efficiently.
