Main signs of lock failure
The lock is becoming stiff
There are many symptoms that relate to this. It might become hard to turn the key in the lock, or perhaps it makes new noises that it didn’t before. Alternatively, the lock might spin without ever actually locking your door properly. In fact, if the lock acts or sounds any different than it did when it was first installed, there is a good chance that your locking mechanism is damaged and breaking down.
A lock should be easy to open with the right key, and it should be secure. If your handle jiggles, if the key sticks, and if it seems like you have to do a complicated manoeuvre nowadays to get the lock to actually work, you need a locksmith.
The door is jammed
A jammed door or window is also a good reason to call a professional locksmith. It isn’t just the lock itself that matters, after all. So if the door is jammed, you have to fight with it or even have to shove your whole body into the door to get it to open after you’ve unlocked it, then call us.
Shaky doors, jammed doors, and doors that just don’t seem to want to cooperate are no match for our talented experts. They can help fix the door alignment, fix the lock, and diagnose even bigger issues like an improperly installed door, so you never have to fight to get in or out of your home again.

If you are interested in upgrading your locking system, then get in touch with our professionals for a UPVc lock upgrade. The mechanism will work like a dream, and you can finally enjoy a home that is locked up tight and safe.
How much does a uPVC repair cost?
UPVc door lock repair is always going to be cheaper and faster to get done than replacing the entire door or window. In fact, replacing the whole door is the last thing you want to do.
Though the locking mechanisms and doors and windows themselves can come from any number of suppliers and brands, the mechanisms that make them work are often very similar to one another. This makes it easy work to provide you with UPVc furniture repair.
Not every locksmith is going to give you a great rate, however. Many national companies may try to charge you up to £400 for your visit, when, in reality, half of that is what you should be looking at for a worst-case scenario fix. The cost depends on the price of the locking mechanism replacement. Some can cost as low as £20 for the replacement; other replacement mechanisms can cost a hundred or more.
The good news is that you can save by ordering a replacement locking mechanism and replacing the lock yourself. This option is ideal for those with straight-forward locks. For complex locks or for those who don’t want to run the risk of changing it out themselves, our Surelock Homes locksmiths are here for you.
