Composite door has Dropped:
You may experience the door handle feeling very stiff or hard to fully lift into the locking position. If the door was installed correctly, then the door frame will be perfectly aligned. However, as new builds move slightly over time, this could cause the door to drop slightly. This will then misalign the locking points on the composite door. There-fore additional force will be required to lock the door.
If you are experiencing this issue then our composite door repairs technician will adjust your composite door back into alignment, then the locks will go smoothly back into the keeps without further force.
Broken Door Mechanism:
If this occurs then may experience the key turning but the handle does not go down. This often occurs when the door is extremely difficult to lock so additional force has been applied to lift the composite door handle. This force will also be applied to the multipoint mechanism, then eventually causing the locking system to brake.
