North West Bifolds are your local bifolding door experts, having installed a large number of aluminium bifolding doors in the North West.
We have an excellent name in bifolding doors with a wealth of experience and knowledge. Here are our most commonly asked questions about bifolding doors.
Do you supply bifolding doors at standard sizes.
No. All bifolding doors are made to order or made to measure. This is because no two properties can have doors of exactly the same size and it is rare generally to find bifolds at “stock sizes”. All it takes is a quick visit to establish your sizes and your requirements and we will do the rest.
Can my bifolding doors out or in?
Our wide range of aluminium bifolding doors can open in or out. This will be determined at the time of survey and once you have chosen which way your doors are to open, they can be ordered.
We recommend outward opening doors if your outside space allows it as it won’t take up any space on the inside of your home.
What about patio doors? Are they no longer popular?
On the contrary, patio sliding doors are as popular as ever. Where our customers require the maximum glass panels and visible glass area to look through, patio doors are perfect for this.
The sliding leaves on modern patio doors can be made up to 3 metres wide or high with some products therefore if you are looking to create panoramic glass walls, patio doors may be your better option.
What about PVCu bifolding doors?
PVCu bifolding doors are the cheapest type of door of this type on the market. Whilst PVCu doors have advanced a lot in recent years and are much better products than they used to be, we and many other professional bifolding for installers prefer aluminium.
With a PVCu door you will have a much thicker door than aluminium as PVCu is not as strong as aluminium and therefore has to be made thicker to be stronger. In our experience PVCu bifolding doors owing to them expanding much more than aluminium can have reliability issues which are typically not found in aluminium bifolding doors.
What colours area available on bifolding doors?
North West Bifolds offer you a choice of over 200 colours – further added to by a choice of satin, gloss or matt shades.
We can also offer you bifolding doors with different colours inside and out, metallic colours, anodised silver shades and many others. We can even supply woodgrain doors in aluminium if required.
What glass is available?
We provide high specification double glazed safety glass with all our bifolding doors as standards.
These comprise Planitherm Total+ Glass with Argon Gas Fill and Low-E swisspacer. You can even choose triple glazing and even double glazed units with integral glass blinds for privacy when needed.
What thresholds are supplied with your doors?
We offer a choice of rebated or low thresholds with our doors. A site survey will determine what is the best threshold option for your own doors.
We often install bifolding doors where the inner and outer floor levels are as flush as possible and can advise you further on your threshold choices for your new doors. .
What Guarantee is Available on Bifolding Doors?
