Why is it important to maintain proper alignment with Upvc Doors?

Having a proper door alignment enables the doors in your property to open and close more smoothly, but it can also prevent unwanted drafts around the house, and it increases the chances of untimely wear and tear.

Door Hinges and Realignment

There are typically three different varieties of hinges that are used with uPVC doors.


This type of hinge will only enable you to make lateral and height adjustments.

Butt Hinges

These are usually found on older doors, and they are limiting as to the amendments that can be made. Typically, they will either allow you to make a lateral change or no change at all. Therefore, if you have one of these hinges and you need to make a height adjustment, then a new hinge will be needed in order to allow this change to happen.

Flag Hinges

The majority of modern uPVC doors will come with a flag hinge. This allows a much greater degree of flexibility, as it gives you the option to make compression, lateral, and height adjustments.

In terms of finding the best type of hinge for a uPVC door, the flag hinges are usually the go-to choice because they allow for a much wider scale of adjustment if they are required as the door ages.
