If your budget allows, you can’t go wrong with aluminium. Sleek frames enhance views and create a stylish finish both inside and out.
However, aluminium bi-fold doors are more expensive than other options.
If you prefer the look and feel of natural materials, wood is an ideal choice for your doors in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath or Oxted. Bi-folding doors are made with many different types of wood, including softwoods and hardwoods, but we recommend hardwood for the best performance and durability.
Wooden doors can require more maintenance, such as periodic treatment to prevent issues like mould and rot. Wood can also expand, contract and warp.
UPVC is the most popular choice for external doors.
However, uPVC is non-recyclable and might not last as long as other materials. These doors also have thicker frames.
Composite door frames are wood on the inside and aluminium on the outside, giving homeowners in the Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and Oxted areas the best of both.
Composite bi-folding doors are usually the most expensive and can be difficult to source.
