5 Great Benefits of Bi-Fold Doors for Your Home

Over the last few years, there has been a considerable increase in the popularity of aluminium bi-fold doors amongst homeowners. They are well suited for houses of all styles and can fit even huge openings, opening and closing seamlessly. If these facts aren’t enough to convince you that bi-fold doors are an excellent choice for your house, we have written a list of 5 of their greatest benefits:


More natural light

More natural light

Bi-fold doors are a great solution for letting in maximum amounts of natural light from outside. When open, the aluminium frames completely fold away and even when closed, they form a wall of glass, so there are no barriers to prevent the sun from reaching your home. The effect of letting more light into your home can also make a room feel much more spacious. In short, installing bi-fold doors could really contribute to transforming a living space.


Great thermal efficiency

Whilst in the past, some aluminium products have been linked with having poor thermal values, this is simply not the case with modern aluminium bi-fold doors as they are designed with thermal insulation as a key consideration. They can be double, or even triple glazed and the compact frames contain three fully enclosed chambers to help reduce heat loss.


Bi-folding doors are a good space saver

One of the biggest functional benefits of bi-folding doors is that they can fold away tidily when opened up, so they take up very little space in your home, especially in contrast with French doors. Whilst they are also very popular, French Doors require each panel to open individually and take up much more physical space as a result.


Long lasting

Aluminium bi-fold doors are highly durable and aren’t affected by seasonal changes; they won’t bend or warp in the heat or be affected by wet or cold weather. Given the rigidity and strength of the aluminium frames, bi-folding doors are clearly a good long term choice.

Bi-fold doors provide a great way to connect your home to your garden and can really help your property stand out from others should you wish to sell. Having a large opening at the rear of a property that allows lots of light into your home can be a great selling point and add value. It’s unsurprising that bi-fold doors are increasingly installed in new build homes, as well as house renovations.
