It all depends on how old/make of the frame, generally reputable window and door manufacturers upgrade there window/door frames to comply with new regulations, so even if you where to find a supplier, your hinges and lock assembly would have to be married up to match the existing door frame.

Out of experience, I generally find no supplier/manufacturer are prepared to service this, in other word it is easier to get a new door.

I hope this answers your question, should you require any more assistance then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards

Hello there. Have a look for a PVC refurb company in your local area.
They use chemicals to bring the frames back to life. Had some done on my house recently. Was over the moon with the results and the cost was far cheaper than buying the new frames and fitting them myself. Hope this helps Chris
