A damaged door or lock can leave you feeling vulnerable and can certainly put your home and property at risk from burglars. Even a small amount of damage can mark a property out as a potential target. Finding the right repair company is therefore important for improving your security and delivering peace of mind.
Over time doors can become misaligned which means that they don’t fit properly. Particularly heavy uPVC doors can suffer from this kind of problem and overtime it can degrade the locking mechanism making it less secure as well as difficult to open and close.
Another problem that damages doors is swelling, something you mainly get when you have an untreated wood door frame. This usually requires the wood to be fixed and the sides sanded down to make a better fit but can also affect the locks if left to degrade.
Hardware Damage or Failure
One of the big problems for doors comes from the hardware failing. Locks can begin to rust or a key can snap off in the lock. If you have been a victim of a burglary, your lock may be targeted and broken to gain entry. If you have had the same lock for a number of years, the mechanism can wear down and become less efficient and you can reach a point where you put the key in the lock and it doesn’t turn.
