The Long-Term Investment
It’s easy to assume that one set of bifold doors is much the same as the next. So long as they open and shut properly, what’s the difference? Simply put, cheaper bifold doors aren’t as good. The reason why they have lower prices is because they’ve not had as much care and attention put into their manufacture. This means they’re less thermally efficient, more vulnerable to damage and significantly less secure than better-quality bifold doors.
So, while your customers may be delighted to shave a few digits off their asking price, the costs of cheap bi-folding doors soon add up. The frames degrade and the weather seals break down, leading to draughts, water damage and higher energy bills. The joy of saving money will turn to anger as soon as the glazing cracks, the colour fades and you have to call a repairman for the third time in a year.
Superior Aluminium Doors
It goes without saying therefore that when buying new bifold doors, you should always think about quality rather than savings. We make ours from aluminium, an inherently strong and durable metal. It’s designed to withstand severe weather conditions and unwanted intruders with ease, keeping homes safe from heavy rain and burglars alike.
Additionally, while our aluminium doors are usually cold to the touch, don’t be fooled; they offer exceptional thermal efficiency. They minimise the heat transfer between the house and the outside world, making it far easier to manage the temperature. This means that staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter becomes more straightforward, and there’ll be less need to turn the central heating on. In the long run, this can result in big savings. Our aluminium bifold doors have lifespans that are measured in decades, and when you can potentially reduce a heating bill by over £100 each year, those savings will eventually make up for the initial cost.
