The key factors which impact price are:
The type of frame has a big influence on the cost of bi-fold doors. The most affordable option is uPVC, which is great for saving some pennies if you’re on a tight budget. Aluminium frames are more expensive but are lighter, thinner and less bulky. Timber and composite frames are also available.
When choosing a material, it’s important to think about appearance and maintenance as well as the cost to find the best solution for your home in Horsham, Reigate or Tunbridge Wells.
The number of panels included in your door will affect the price; the more you have, the more you will spend. Consequently, the size of the door opening will influence the price. Remember, the frames are more expensive than the glass, so opting for more glazing can help keep costs down.
Other design aspects which can impact the cost include the slide mechanism, ease/difficulty of installation, the type of glazing, the colour/finish of frames and whether the system includes a traffic door.
You might choose to add extra features to bi-fold doors. Any optional extras will increase the price you pay. This includes things like different locking mechanisms, additional security features and integrated blinds.
Some homeowners in the Horsham, Reigate and Tunbridge wells areas also choose to upgrade the glazing, While double glazing is the standard choice, you could go for triple glazing or solar-reflective glazing.
