What Are the Benefits of Bifold Doors? 

Natural Light 

One of the primary benefits of bifolding doors is the flood of natural light they bring into your home. With large glass panels and slim aluminium frames, bifold doors allow sunlight to pour into your living spaces, making your home feel brighter and more inviting. 

Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Transition 

Bifolding doors create a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor spaces. When fully opened, they provide up to 90% opening space, making them perfect for patios, gardens, and conservatories. This open-plan living style is ideal for entertaining guests or enjoying unobstructed views of your garden. 

Stylish and Durable 

At Albany Windows, we offer bifold doors from leading aluminium suppliers. These doors are crafted from durable aluminium, providing strength and longevity without compromising on style. Available in a wide range of RAL colours, including popular options like black and woodgrain effects, our bifold doors can be customised to suit any home aesthetic.

Energy Efficiency 

Energy efficiency is a crucial consideration for any home improvement project. Our bifold doors feature thermally broken aluminium frames and double glazing, which help reduce energy costs by preventing heat loss. The energy-saving glass and argon-filled units ensure your home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 

Home Security 

Security is a top priority for homeowners, and our bifold doors deliver with super secure five-point locking systems. This advanced security feature provides peace of mind, knowing that your home is well-protected. 

How Much Do Bifold Doors Cost? 

The cost of bifold doors can vary depending on several factors, including the size, material, and customisation options. On average, you can expect to pay between £1,200 and £3,000 per linear metre. However, investing in bifold doors is a worthwhile expenditure considering the benefits they bring, such as increased natural light, improved energy efficiency, and added home value. 

At Albany Windows, we pride ourselves on offering competitive prices without compromising on quality. We also provide a free quote, so you can get an accurate estimate tailored to your specific needs. 

How Long Do Bifold Doors Last? 

Bifold doors are designed to be a long-lasting addition to your home. When properly maintained, high-quality bifold doors can last between 20 to 30 years. The durability of the aluminium frames, coupled with the robust stainless steel track system, ensures smooth operation and longevity.
