Bi-fold doors consist of 2 or more glazed doors that open and close using a concertina mechanism. They fold flat and stack against the wall to fully connect your interior with your garden, patio or terrace and create a neat open space. When closed, a set of bi-fold doors will let in maximum natural light and give you a fabulous view of your outdoor space.
Most bi-fold doors come with slim frames made from uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) or solid oak. From 2 panes and 3 panes to 3 doors, bi-fold doors can be configured in a variety of ways. You can also choose between a white or woodgrain finish to complement both the interior and exterior of your property.
Bi-fold prices start at around £2050 and go up to £4919. The variation in price is due to the size and finish of the bi-fold doors. It’s also worth mentioning that bi-fold doors can be made and fitted to slide to the left or right.
- Types of Bi-Fold Doors
Regardless of how modern or traditional looking your home may be, there is a bi-fold door system available to give it character and individuality. You just need to explore all the options to ensure you’re happy with the end result. Here is a guide on the different types of materials and configurations.
A 2 panel bi-fold door price will range between £2050 and £2750 and is ideal if you have a small opening. The two panes are held together with hinges and fold where they both meet to make it easy to open and close the door. They can slide to the left or right to leave you with an uninterrupted view of your outdoor area. As the frames are made from uPVC, you can select from a white or woodgrain finish. We should also add that uPVC frames are increasing in popularity for their strength and low maintenance requirements.
If you have a slightly larger opening, then a 3 panel bi-fold door will be suitable for your home. Again, the door frames will be constructed from uPVC and can be finished in a white coating or a woodgrain effect.The three panes work in the same way as a 2 pane door. They can be opened effortless in seconds and stacked to one side to give you immediate access to your garden. Average prices for a 3 pane bi-fold door start at £2600 and rise to £4919.
Not only do you have the choice of a 3 pane door but you can also opt for a solid oak 3 door bi-fold door. They work slightly differently as one door can be used as a traffic door. The traffic door can be opened and closed as a singular door for ease of access to the outside world, as well as with the other two remaining doors. This type of door is framed with solid oak for its energy efficiency qualities and resistance to noise. You can expect to pay between £2400 and £4919 for a solid oak 3 door bi-fold door.
Bi-fold doors are aesthetically pleasing and can help to create a much larger and brighter living space. They allow plenty of light to enter your home even when the doors are closed, which means they’ll lift a dark room as soon as they’re installed. The flowing natural light will also make your home appear more attractive and encourage you to spend more time relaxing indoors.
The huge glazed panels enable you to keep an eye on your family when playing outside and the airflow will be much better when the doors are open. This can help to save money because you won’t need to rely on air con systems to keep you cool during the warmer months of the year.
You’ll also have convenient access to your outdoor area and be able to potter back and forth with complete ease. As they concertina back on themselves, bi-fold doors are a great solution for both small and large properties. Most versions come with multiple-point locking systems as well, meaning a better level of security compared to alternative types of doors.
One of the nicest things about bi-fold doors is that they require very little maintenance. Most of the structure is made up of the glazing, so they’ll only need a good clean every couple of weeks.
While bi-fold doors can help to create a beautiful open space, they do have their disadvantages. Having said that, they are considered a luxury item and the cons aren’t terrible. However, you do need to be aware that the frames will carve the view when the doors are closed. Most frames are very slim so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. The only other disadvantage it that they can look bulky when stacked up at one end of the opening.
