Tilt and slide doors are a common fitting in the Doncaster area. If you have one of these doors and there is a problem with it, SF Locksmith specialise in the service and repair of tilt and slide doors in the Doncaser district.

Do not consider purchasing a new sliding patio door before receiving a free quote for a repair first. Your local double glazing installer will tell you that a repair is not possible, we will tell you different! And save you lots of cash.

The things likely to go wrong on a tilt and slide door

Drive gear failure

To open or put the door on vent you have to rotate the handle first. This handle controls a "drive gear" which moves the locking points that run around the edge. This can fail through wear and tear after many years of use. The door can drop a little as well and this puts extra stress on the lower locking points causing resistance. If the handle had become harder to operate recently then that is a sign that this was a problem. 

What does this mean?

Call us now for a free over the phone quote with any information found on the door. We will be able to replace this drive gear and also give the door a service at the same time.
