As with UPVC Doors we can in most cases carry out the same level of repairs. However, generally speaking aluminium door installations are older than UPVC installations. This coupled with some of the methods of manufacture, such as the door being made around the glass can be time consuming when a repair is needed.
Also depending whether the door has an anodized silver finish and has oxidized or a powder coated finish can affect the time taken to clean or restore the frame. Older aluminium windows were installed into timber sub-frames, we do not carry out remedial work to timber.

WOODEN OR TIMBER DOORS
In general the only remedial work we carry out to timber doors is to repair or change the locking mechanism.
The main two types of lock associated with these doors are:
- Cylinder rim locks
- Mortice locks
Cylinder rim locks are commonly known as Yale locks. There are two ways in which this type of lock can be replaced or repaired. If you have lost your keys or it is only the cylinder which is set in the lock housing is damaged but the main lock housing is working we will change this part only and provide new keys, which is a cheaper alternative to replacing the complete lock. If the lock housing is broken or damaged we will endeavour to repair it, if this is not possible we will replace the entire lock including the cylinder.
Mortice locks come in various types and are recognised by the amount of locking levers within the lock. Insurance companies insist on a five lever mortice lock conforming to BS 3621 When replacing mortice locks we would always advise to have a BS approved five lever lock fitted.
