What Should I Consider?

  • Cleaning Your Door

    To keep your composite door looking fresh, all you will need to do is give it a light clean with mild, soapy water. If you find yourself facing tough stains, it is important to note that you should never use an abrasive cleaner. This includes PVC cleaner, as you can remove any stubborn stains by using a non-abrasive cleaner. Further to this, ensure drainage holes are clear on a yearly basis.

  • Using Your Door Properly

    To avoid any damage to the door panel, it’s important that you close the door properly. This includes ‘throwing the handle’ when the door is closed, which engages the top and bottom hooks for increased security and support. If you do not throw the handle you will leave the door solely on the latch, which can cause problems in the long run.

  • Cleaning Door Furniture

    We know that keeping up appearances is important when it comes to your home, which is why it is important to keep the door furniture (handles, hinges, numerals etc.) looking nice and clean. To do this, we recommend you wipe it with a clean cloth soaked in warm water and mild detergent every month. This way, you’ll maintain a consistent appearance.

  • Maintaining Your Lock

    The lock is a key player in ensuring your door can protect your home, so it’s useful to know how to look after it. To maintain smooth and consistent operation, all you will have to do is lubricate the working parts of the mechanism at least every 12 months. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your nearest Endurance Installer.

  • Adjusting Your Hinges

    Over constant use, it is natural for your door to need some hinge adjustment. To keep the door in top shape, all you will have to do is adjust the screws on the hinges or adjust the locking keeps from time to time. This means that your door will sit perfectly as it was installed to do, allowing you to enjoy simple and efficient operation.
