Future Windows supply and fit bi-fold doors for homeowners, landlords and even some commercial clients in the Dorking, Horsham, Redhill and Reigate areas. Indeed, we cover all of Surrey and Sussex with high-end services unrivalled in both regions. Bi-fold doors are revolutionary in design and an increasingly popular choice with our local customers.
On this page, we discuss why bi-fold doors can be safely classified as the ultimate solution for your home and also explain some of the main benefits and features in detail.
The benefits are visually obvious and previously completed installations in Dorking, Horsham and the surrounding Redhill and Reigate areas have delivered what we refer to in the trade as the elusive ‘WOW Factor’. Sleek framework, large glass panes and innovative functionality are the mainstays of bi-fold doors and the benefits associated with them.
Bi-fold doors have up to 90% clearance opening space while French doors, which we also supply and install, will have a clearance of around 40%. This allows for better air circulation, excellent interaction between room and garden space, exceptional light penetration and greater ease of use. Bi-fold doors are also secure, family-friendly and low maintenance.
Our company mounts bi-fold doors on tracks with multiple pivot points so they can fold and stack easily. A main traffic door is integrated so that the entire installation doesn’t have to be opened for everyday entry and egress. Your Dorking, Horsham, Redhill or Reigate home, or any other property in Surrey or Sussex, remains 100% functional and easy to access.
Because bi-fold doors are fitted flush with the floor, there are never any concerns about tripping on the framework. Additional security features can be included, such as anti-bump, anti-snap and half-lock cylinders, so that the small fingers of children are never injured.
Many of the customers we meet associate bi-fold doors with larger, more modern homes but they’re actually suitable for properties of any size, shape and style. Larger houses benefit from extended dimensions when bi-fold doors are fitted but smaller homes in Dorking, Horsham, Redhill and Reigate gain more air, light and space after installation.
Future Windows can integrate bi-fold doors into any Surrey or Sussex property, and we are able to work on new or existing builds. Bi-fold doors are custom-manufactured so even if you have unusual dimensions to consider, we’ll be able to supply doors in bespoke sizes.
Bi-fold doors are available in a variety of materials but we find that aluminium is the most popular choice with our customers. Aluminium bi-fold doors are lightweight but surprisingly durable. We also feel that aluminium is a great choice for any Dorking, Horsham, Redhill or Reigate home but the final decision will rest on the style and the décor of the property.
Period homes in Surrey and Sussex will benefit better from timber bi-fold doors and these can be manufactured with an aluminium core for added strength. Composite bi-fold doors are an exceptional choice because the materials used in manufacture promote a traditional, stylish finish combined with the highest levels of durability and complete user functionality.
COLOURS AND FINISHES
From Dorking to Dunsfold, from Horley to Horsham and from Redhill to Reigate, Future Windows can supply any property in the South East with bi-fold doors in a complete range of colours and finishes. Choose from more than 200 RAL colours, including woodgrain and metal effects, for a vibrant, durable, modern and organic finish on any installation.
Our company can advise you on the most suitable colours and finishes during your initial site survey and consultation, both of which are free and provided without obligation.
PRICE AND VALUE
Bi-fold doors are bespoke products so it’s impossible to provide an exact price without seeing your property first. The general rule of thumb is that they cost £1,000 per metre but costs can be slightly higher or lower based on the dimensions of your home and the complexity of the installation. Our quotation will provide a full breakdown on costs.
We advise our Dorking, Horsham, Redhill and Reigate customers that panels are more expensive than glass panes so it’s always a good idea to opt for more glazing if you want to keep the overall cost of bi-fold doors inside your available budget. Even glass costs can vary, however, if you choose to have solar-reflective glazing fitted instead of standard.
