Roller Shutter Repairs in Leicester

While roller shutters are a great addition to your home or business, you need regular roller shutter maintenance to keep them in top condition, ensure security, avoid injuries and make sure your belongings aren’t exposed to the elements.


Without regular upkeep several common issues can arise over time:

  • Mechanical Malfunctions: Components like springs, motors, and gears may wear out, leading to difficulties in opening or closing the shutter smoothly

  • Misalignment: Roller shutters can become misaligned if not properly maintained, causing them to get stuck, jammed, or operate unevenly

  • Sensor Problems: If your roller shutters are equipped with sensors, they can malfunction, affecting the shutter's responsiveness to obstacles or automated commands

  • Electrical Issues: Motorised roller shutters may experience electrical problems, such as wiring damage, which can disrupt their operation.

  • Lubrication and Maintenance: Without proper lubrication and routine roller shutter maintenance it can result in noisy, sluggish, or jerky movement of your doors

  • Physical Damage: Accidents, impacts, or vandalism can cause dents, bent slats, or damage to the shutter's structure

  • Rust and Corrosion: In areas with high humidity or moisture, metal parts can rust or corrode, leading to your roller shutters deteriorating

  • Remote Control Failures: Remote-controlled shutters might face signal interference or battery issues, affecting their remote operation

  • Worn Slats or Tracks: Over time, roller shutter slats can wear out, warp, or become damaged, hindering smooth movement along the tracks

  • Weather-related Problems: Extreme weather conditions, like heavy winds or storms, can strain the roller shutter's mechanisms, leading to malfunctions

  • Manual Operation Difficulties: Manual shutters might become hard to open or close due to the buildup of dirt, lack of lubrication, or aging components
