There are many causes of upvc problems so I will list a few here.
The weather. In the summer months, a lot of people experience the problem of upvc doors swelling in the heat, as you can imagine this can be a huge problem as this causes extra strain on the gearbox or mechanism. You end up having to force the handle more than usual which leads to extra strain on the working parts. Eventually, this leads to parts cracking and breaking and leaving the homeowner with a door that just will not open.
In the winter months or during a cold snap, you may experience the upvc doors contracting. This can cause similar problems heat and will eventually lead to a break if the door is not adjusted back to its original position.
