How Much Does It Cost to Replace a uPVC Door Lock?
The cost of replacing a uPVC door lock can change depending on time of day and the type of lock needed. For example, if you call a Locksmith outside of working hours (usually 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday) then you can expect to pay more than if you were to call within working hours. Similarly different lock types and makes hold different pricing, so the specific lock that your door requires will affect the overall price of the job.
uPVC Multipoint Locking System
Multi-point locking mechanisms are where you lift the handle of a door which then engages a number of locking points throughout the side of the door effectively securing the door in place. The locking points are then locked in when the accompanying cylinder lock is turned.
This mechanism makes a uPVC door more secure as instead of a single locking point within a door you now have multiple, securing the door better to the frame.
uPVC Multipoint Locking System Failure
Unfortunately, sometimes these mechanisms can become jammed in the engaged position and mean that even if the door will lock and unlock at the cylinder the door is jammed shut because of the additional locksmith points throughout the door. But never to worry, as uPVC specialists we are equipped to tackle any uPVC issues our customers might face and offer them a solution that’s efficient and effective!

Yes. You can change both the lock barrel (the part where the key goes in) and also the lock itself. Both are usually quick and easy for an expert uPVC Locksmith to do.
