One of the main reasons for the misconception that there can not be uPVC door repair is because there are many double glazing firms have gone out of business. People assume that when the company that manufactured their windows and doors has gone out of business then the parts have gone also.

Even though the windows look different, the uPVC hardware parts can be exactly the same. Also it does not benefit double glazing firms to make it public knowledge that what they sell is repairable as they would prefer to just sell you a new window.
