Front, Back & Patio Door Repairs
Front, back and patio doors may require repairs & maintenance from time to time. uPVC, Aluminium and timber frame materials are the most common types and have similar working parts. If your door needs a repair, call our technicians for a speedy repair service.
A lack of maintenance can leads to faults. All doors need regular servicing to keep them in good condition. Constant use causes many problems over time. The tell tale signs that your door needs a service are:
- Dragging on the bottom or side folds of door & frame.
- It becomes increasingly hard to lock the door.
- Water Ingress & Draughts
Providing your locks are well-oiled & serviced regularly, their lifespan can be prolonged greatly. However, like everything in life they will be prone to wear and tear, and can eventually fail.
The main cause of failure is doors falling out of sync with locking points on frames, causing resistance and grinding of locks. If you get to this stage, call for a service ASAP.
If the lock is beyond service or repair, we can replace locks or upgrade them for those that require more security and added piece of mind.
Draughts & leaks
Draughts and leaks can come as a result of several reasons.
Shrinkage of silicone sealant can allow ingress of water and draughts at the side of the frame. If the locking points are not engaging properly, it can lead to the door warping outwards or inwards, allowing in draughts and water. Another issue is blocked drainage channels or worn rubber seals.
All of this can be rectified by Decorative Glass & Glazing’s team.
Panels and Cat & Dog Flaps
Many doors comprise of plastic panels. Over time, these can crack, warp or discolour. These can be changed without the fuss of having a whole new door. They can be changed for glass infill panels or vice-versa.
For customers requiring cat or dog flaps, we can cut one out providing it’s flat and unmoulded, or supply a new panel fitted with your cat or dog flap of choice.
We pride ourselves on being flexible in the way that we work, and we can accommodate most requests.
Patio & Bi-folding Door Problems
Patio doors generally come in two versions: sliding or tilt & slide. Sliding Patio doors don’t tend to go wrong, but after years of service they can gather grime and begin to wear. A tell-tale sign that you have a problem is needing to use more force to close and lock the door. In most cases we can rectify these issues by replacing the wheels.
Tilt and slide doors, however, can be problematic due to the number of components. The handle operates several locking points that are connected to each other. If one of these fails, it causes total failure. In many cases, we can replace the failed component, but most of the time all that’s needed is a simple service.
Bi-folding doors are becoming very popular and are a combination of the above. You can encounter a combination of either aforementioned issue with these doors.
A door can be affected by a worn or broken hinge. In most cases these can be replaced by our skilled team. Call Decorative Glass for advice and our team will be more than happy to be of service.
Hardware & Furniture
Hardware refers to things like door handles & letter boxes. This could also be spy holes, knockers, numbers, door chains and bells. These are all available in a range of colours, so you can really customise the appearance of your door.
All of these can be supplied & fitted by Decorative Glass & Glazing’s team.
