What are the most common door problems?

Some of the most common faults that we can find are:

Lock failures

Like any other type of structure or mechanism, at any time after its installation it can present small problems that without maintenance become bigger and bigger. If you were able to identify the problem from the beginning and you are looking for a solution, it will depend on the type of problem to know if it has a common repair that can be done by anyone, or if you need a professional locksmith. For example, if the problem is just that the lock sometimes creaks or sticks more and more when closing, it is always best to implement some specialized oil to be able to refresh the metal or material of the lock. 

Door mechanism problems

Door problems are not only limited to the lock and its engagement with the door frame, but can also extend to elements that can even be used much more than the lock: hinges, screws, among others. 

In most of these cases the best we can do is to apply oil, or check if any of them are detached or need a new coating. If this does not work, we can fix door mechanisms problems with the help of a locksmith. 

Door alignment problems

Many times the people in charge of putting the door in the frame don’t do it right, so we have to make a couple of strange movements to be able to close the door correctly. In this case the best thing to do is to call a professional who can work with UPVC Doors because if we do it ourselves we may run the risk of not doing it right and break the door or cause a major accident. UPVC Doors are quite heavy and a normal person can have problems if it falls on him.
