As a leading expert in windows and doors, we understand that finding the right back door for your home can be a daunting task. With a wide range of doors on the market, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect fit for you and your home. All doors have different advantages and disadvantages. We are here to leverage our expertise and make the decision easier for you. This article will help you understand the differences between our collection of doors and guide you to make a more informed decision for your home. Read on to find out about our range of doors.

Bifold doors

Bifold doors feature a folding opening mechanism; as the name suggests, the doors fold onto each other, making a large opening which creates a seamless transition to your garden space. Bifold doors are perfect if you are looking for an indoor-outdoor feel in your home; they are ideal for entertaining or just relaxing in the sun. These doors feature a rolling mechanism that allows you to smoothly open your doors efficiently so you can easily access your garden space. Bifold doors are perfect for homeowners looking to conserve space, as bifold doors can fold up into a compact space; you can also pick whether you want your doors to open inwards or outwards. 

In terms of accessibility, bifold doors have the advantage of easier access and better wheelchair accessibility compared to patio doors and french doors, which makes them a popular choice with homeowners who have mobility issues and are looking for a more accessible space.

Patio Doors

Patio doors are also a great option if you are looking for maximum sunlight in your home. Patio doors feature large glass panes that slide behind each other; this makes for a brighter, more inviting space. Due to the large glass panes, these doors are extremely energy efficient, and double glazing allows you to maintain consistent temperatures in your home. Patio doors have fewer frames than bifold doors, providing more uninterrupted and clearer views, as well as increased thermal efficiency. However, if you want to open your doors, patio doors can only open halfway as one panel is fixed while the other slides in front of it, compared to bifold doors that can slide the whole way open.

French Doors 

If you are looking for a classic, timeless style, then our French doors are perfect. French doors feature a hinge opening mechanism, usually with two doors, which is highly user-friendly and easy to use. French doors are ideal for homeowners looking for a simple back door that will stay won’t style. French doors are also remarkably easy to install, ensuring you can upgrade your back doors in no time with minimal disturbance to your home. Whilst French doors do feature large glass panels, they don’t offer as expansive views as patio and bifold doors, but they will offer more extensive views than a window or a single door. 

French doors are the most affordable option, making them a popular choice for many homeowners. The cost of your doors will depend on their size and quantity. Use our online quoting engine to explore our range of doors and get an estimated price based on your home’s measurements.

Finding the right door for your home 

The type of door you’re looking for depends on many factors; one of the main factors is the type of property you have. Bifold doors are ideal for more contemporary homes due to their modern style and sleek design. However, they are becoming increasingly popular in traditional homes. With our range of customisable features, you can fit your door to suit all kinds of properties. If you are looking to fill an ample space, then bifold and patio doors are ideal. We can fit multiple panels within your doors to offer a wide opening and a perfect way to brighten up your home. 

Bifold doors offer the flexibility of opening inwards or outwards and multiple panels. French doors suit older-style properties and complement sliding sash windows and heritage windows well. If you have a smaller opening, French doors are a great choice.
