Can I paint UPVC door frames with gloss?


admin answers:

Hi,  painting  UPVC is not really advisable but having said that there are some upvc paints on the market – B&Q sell such a paint. However I would suggest cleaning the upvc with a good upvc solvent cleaner. High quaility upvc windows and doors and fascia should not discolour. It should contain a white fastner (or colour fastner if oak or rosewood colour pvc)- this stops the fading and pinking of the product.

is it possible to renew security door handle on a UPVC door?


admin answers:

Depends on the manufacturer, they are very often made by Yale and have Eurolock cylinders fitted, which are easy to find.. Look on the face for a makers name.

I have lost the key to my uPVC door, what can i do?

can i get a new key or do i have to have the whole mechanism taken and and replaced?

Sadly you will have to call out a locksmith. They are expensive. Check on your household insurance policy, ours has a thing about ‘losing house keys’ whereby you are insured for the cost of replacing the locks (minus the excess amount n the policy). You may be lucky.

Search for a locksmith
