UPVC French Doors and Front Doors affected by Hot Weather Horton Kirby
UPVC French Doors and Front Doors affected by the Weather
Hot weather can affect the operation of your French doors , Back door, Patio door or Front Door. If the doors were not adjusted correctly or if they had been installed poorly or incorrectly.
Most common problems I encounter are where the edge of the door are catching or rubbing on the edge of the framework. Quite often the door handle becomes stiff which will make the door difficult to lock fully.
Must modern types of Double Glazed doors should NOT be affected by the hot weather. As they have a built in expansion tolerance.
French doors alignment and adjusting
If your door is not aligned correctly it could affect the locking mechanism or if really bad even stop the door from closing and locking. I can fix this problem for you.
The re-alignment and adjusting of the French doors will require both doors to be adjusted. Many people think they only need one of their French doors adjusted. However, this is not the case as both doors need to be adjusted together to operate correctly.
My French Door handle feels stiff and notchy when I lift the handle to lock my doors
If you feel a resistance as you lift your handle don’t force the handle up. As this can break your multi-locking system. In fact most multi-locks are broken due to a misaligned door and the handle or key being forced. First try spraying a 3 in 1 oil on the lock as it could be dry. Ensure there is no dirt or small objects are causing an obstruction. If this does not help then please Call The Window Wizard. We can adjust your French Doors so that they line-up correctly and operate how they should.
