Sliding And Folding Door Prices
Sliding and folding door prices are on average £2900 incl. VAT and installation
Sliding and folding patio doors consist of large glass panels that bend on the joints and slide to one side to enable you easy access to your outdoor space. They also come with panels that slide along to the first panel to create a versatile opening. You can also purchase a sliding door that stays perfectly balanced as it moves along its tracks. Both of these door systems are great for providing you with better views and allowing more natural light and air into your home.
Most sliding and folding patio door frames can be constructed of uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride), solid oak, aluminium, soft wood or hard wood. While some homeowners like the natural finish of wood frames, others prefer the variety of colours and effects available with the uPVC and aluminium versions.
When you choose a sliding and folding door system or a sliding door that’s manufactured to the highest standard, you’ll be looking at paying anything between £1000 and £5650.
- Types of Sliding and Folding Doors
Many manufacturers can produce sliding and folding door systems and sliding doors in bespoke sizes to suit your property. In most cases, you can even choose the number of panels you’d like to have in the door to ensure the perfect fit. With so many ways to open up your living space to the outside, we’re going to talk you through your options.
Sliding and folding right opening doors come fully glazed with uPVC frames and cost around £2850 to £3400. Whether you have a large opening or restricted doorway, the neat folding and sliding motion offers you flexibility and practicality. They slide to one side (on the right) and provide you with better access and visibility to your garden. Sliding and folding right opening doors also offer you better security thanks to their multiple-point locking systems.
Solid oak sliding and folding patio doors cost between £3200 and £5650, making them pricier than uPVC alternatives. Again, they are fully glazed for enhanced security and safety. They can be installed in most situations and allow you to open your space completely in a matter of seconds. As with the uPVC versions, these doors are weather resistant and help to retain heat.
Sliding patio doors usually consist of two doors and come in a choice of frames including uPVC, aluminium, soft wood and hard wood. As the doors slide on a track system, the panels sit behind each other to allow for a much wider opening. Prices start from just £1000 and go up to £2905 depending on the frame material and door size you choose.
A set of sliding and folding patio doors can help you make the best use of your room and outdoor space while bringing the outdoors in. That means you can admire your garden in the warmer months and keep an eye on your family outdoors while staying comfortable indoors.
The other main advantage is you’ll have easy access to your garden or alfresco living area. You simply fold or slide your doors open to create an entrance to your outdoor space. These types of doors are also aesthetically pleasing and you can choose from a range of styles and designs to match the rest of your home.
Whether you go for sliding and folding or sliding only doors, you can maximise your natural light when the doors are both open and closed. Both types are great for saving space as well, especially as they don’t open outwards or inwards like basic patio doors.
Sliding and folding patio doors tend to be more thermally efficient than other types of patio doors. They are also low maintenance solutions that offer a great level of security compared to other traditional types of patio doors.
While sliding and folding doors offer an enhanced view, they can break up your view when they are closed. Regardless of which door type you choose, you will need the help of professional to install your doors, which adds to the overall cost. The installation of these types of doors is virtually impossible to do by yourself.
