Most uPVC doors and windows are locked using a multipoint lock, which locks in several places up the frame of the window or door when the handle is lifted. This action of lifting the handle after several years will wear the lock down until it eventually fails. You can expect a uPVC door lock to last around 10-15 years before it starts to fail. If you contact us when the lock starts the fail, there is a good chance we can repair it without having to replace the whole mechanism, so if you start to see symptoms of a fault uPVC door lock then contact us immediately before it gets any worse.
