Our uPVC Specialist services

We can upgrade or replace a multitude of components, to ensure that your uPVC doors and windows are secure. From rollers, sliders, hooks and deadbolts we can help with your broken or damaged strip.


Cylinder Changes

Any cylinder, including single, double or thumb turn we can replace or upgrade to high security locks to make certain you have the best security possible.


Handle Replacement

uPVC door handles have a tendency to break between the lever and back plate, which is then unable to be re-assembled leading to the handle needing to be replaced.

How much would it cost?

We don’t charge for callouts, but rather for the Locksmiths time and if any parts are required. The price is completely dependent on the time of day, the parts required and the circumstances, so until a locksmith is at your door it is hard to estimate an exact price.

But not to fret, once you call we run through all of your details and aim to give you a complete overview of what you can expect to be charge dependent on your situation.


What if one visit isn’t enough?

When you call The NGCL, nine times out of ten our Locksmiths are able to resolve any issue on the first visit, however sometimes a specialist part is needed to repair the problem properly.

You can  rest assured that even if our specialists need to order a replacement part, it can be ordered and delivered within 24 hours*, and our specialist will come back to your property to fix your issue.

In some situations where a Multipoint locking system has been discontinued* you can trust us to source an alternative item that you are happy with to avoid the door having to be replaced.
