Bi-fold doors offer a number of advantages over sliding doors and are the preferred option for many patio builders and their customers.
Features of Bi-Fold Doors
Bi-fold doors are well-suited to patios, as their large glass panels offer unrestricted views over outdoor spaces. These doors also save space when compared to French patio doors; folding inwards to offer immediate access to and from gardens, decks or patios.
Bi-fold doors also offer the benefit of instantly extending the interior living space of a home, and are favoured for their high levels of security and safety when closed. Bi-fold doors are also versatile enough that they can be easily incorporated into existing rooms, either as an exterior door or internal door between rooms, and may be supplemented by bi-fold windows.
These doors and windows are well insulated and can be made from a range of materials, including low maintenance aluminium or timber for traditional homes.
You should research the contractor installing your bi-fold doors to give you confidence that the job will be completed to a high standard, and you may arrange for these doors to be installed at the same time as a patio to ensure a perfect match. However,
It’s not generally recommended to install bi-fold doors yourself unless you have sufficient training, as these doors need to be properly weighted and balanced by the top beam.
