New flats in ockendon

I was called to a property in south Ockendon where the door would not lock,I arrived to find the centre case was at fault, I returned with a new centre case but I could not remove the mechanism without forcing it out which may of bent the mechanism. I informed the customer and advised that it would be better to replace the whole mechanism he agreed to this. I returned with tbe new mechanism and tried to remove the old mechanism after some time it came out when I looked who ever fitted the lock had screwed through the back of the case in to tbe door which was why it would not come out. I fitted the new mechanism and the customer said it was better than when he moved in when the flats were Brand new.

Damaged handles

Last week a customer asked me to have a look at the handles on the front door, the handle was coming away from the base. The customer asked me to replace the handles as she was concerned the handle would come off in her handle . I ordered the handles in and they arrived today I went to the property to fit them but after unpacking them I noticed they were damaged and informed the customer I could not fit them. I spoke to the supplier and they are sending me a repkacements set


New handles

Before xmas I fitted a new mechanism to a rear door.the door itself was bowed which meant the door was a little bit stiff to lock I managed to get  all the hooks and rollers to engage in to the keep but informed the customer I would like to keep an eye on it. I returned this week to check it and it had improved I also replaced the handles which has made a big difference to locking and unlocking the door . I will return to see how it going in a months time

Sliding door

Today a customer who I have been to on a few occasions asked me to have a look her sliding door. When I got there the handle was tied to the curtain tie holder with a belt as the door would not lock. I removed the belt tested the lock in the open position it worked Once the door was closed it would not lock then  I shut the and tilted the top towards the frame and it locked  the rear roller had dropped. On the van I have a long screw drive that reaches tbe roller I adjusted the the rollers and the door locks

Avocet mechanism

Last week i was called to a property in purfleet where the upvc door would not open with the handle. I arrived on site to find the latch was not retracting I opened the door checked the mechanism to find it was not in a good way.  I informed the customer,the door was still able to be locked so I locked it. I made some enquires and the mechanism needed was not available anymore and would have to fit a new mechanism and the keep as the rollers are in a different position.  I gave the owner a price he agreed to have it replaced I returned on saturday with both parts fitted them made a few adjustments to the door. The door now opens and closer properly. Happy customer happy dog.
