UPVC Door Alignment Service

A misaligned UPVC door is more than just a minor inconvenience; it can be the source of frustration and safety concerns. When your door doesn't close properly, it compromises your home's security, energy efficiency, and overall comfort. At Cutting Edge Double Glazing Repairs, we specialise in rectifying these issues, ensuring your door is back in perfect alignment.

The Hassles of a Misaligned Door

A crooked UPVC door can cause different problems, but the main issue is that it can't close properly. If your door doesn't fit well in its frame, it can cause many issues due to the gaps. These problems include:

Security Concerns

A door that can't close properly is an open invitation to burglars and unwanted intruders. It's essential to have a door that securely locks to protect your home and loved ones.

Energy Efficiency

Gaps in a crooked door allow drafts to enter and conditioned air to escape. This leads to increased energy bills and a less comfortable living environment.

Aesthetic Disruption

A door that doesn't align correctly can also mar the visual appeal of your home, affecting its overall curb appeal.

Root Causes of Door Misalignment

There are several factors that can contribute to misaligned UPVC doors. One possible factor is improper installation. If you do not install the door correctly, it may not align properly with the frame, leading to misalignment. This can happen if you don't align the hinges correctly or if you don't level the frame.

Another factor that can cause misalignment is wear and tear over time. Various weather conditions expose UPVC doors, which can cause the materials to expand and contract. This can result in the door shifting slightly out of alignment. Additionally, frequent use of the door can cause the hinges to become loose or worn, further contributing to misalignment.

Structural issues with the building can also cause misalignment in some cases. If the foundation of the building settles or shifts, it can affect the alignment of the door. Similarly, if there are structural issues with the door frame, such as warping or damage, it can lead to misalignment.

Furthermore, improper maintenance can also be a factor in misaligned UPVC doors. If the door isn't cleaned and lubricated often, dirt can build up in the hinges, making them stiff or stuck. This can result in the door not closing or opening properly, leading to misalignment.

Various issues like wrong fitting, damage, structural problems, and lack of maintenance can cause UPVC doors to become misaligned. It is important to address these issues promptly to ensure the door functions properly and to prevent further damage.

Warping

Over time, UPVC doors can warp because of exposure to temperature changes and moisture. This warping can result in misalignment, making it challenging to close the door tightly.

Hinge Issues

Misaligned hinges are another common cause of door misalignment. When hinges become loose, bent, or damaged, they can throw your door out of alignment.

Settling or Foundation Shifting

Changes in your home's structure can also lead to door misalignment. Settling or foundation shifting can cause the doorframe to shift, leading to issues with closure.
