With UPVC door locks you will not have to worry about the security of your property. However, if there is something wrong even with one device, this could pose great threats such as burglary. That is why even the smallest issue has to be dealt with as soon as possible.
If your lock malfunctions, you will probably notice you cannot insert the blade into the keyhole or cannot turn the key properly no matter how hard you press on the bow. The device will be inspected for identifying the cause of the problem. If the lock is dirty, it will be cleaned and lubricated. If it is frozen, it will be warmed and lubricant will be applied. If the cylinder is worn or severely damaged, it will be replaced. If the bolt does not retract in either direction, it is released with special technique. When the problem is caused by faulty locking mechanism, the lockset is replaced.
This problem is serious and has to be taken care of without delay. If the panel or frame is broken, it has to be replaced. In some cases, it may be more cost - efficient to have the entire door changed. On the other hand, even bigger dents and cracks can be fixed without replacing the components. If the handle appears to be broken, the issue may be with the locking mechanism. In this case, lock change will resolve the issue.
For keeping the security of your home or business optimal, exterior door locks should be replaced every couple of years even if they are in good condition. This is important since technology is advancing, alongside with lock-picking techniques. The new lock should be resistant to snapping, drilling and picking. The multipoint locking mechanism should have bolts and/or hooks. With accurate installation, the new device will offer a high level of protection at all times.
