When it comes to choosing what door styles you would like for your home, there is lots of decisions to be made (which is why we have created our quick guide to different door types).

But even when you have decided on what style you would like, this leads to another decision: what type of material would you like the door to be made from?

In this instance, you have decided to buy bifold doors (good choice). Now, let us help you decide which material to choose.

What are the benefits of uPVC bifold doors?

Attractive, versatile and cost-effective, uPVC is a very popular material amongst our customers.

With A-rated glass as standard, the multi-chambered profiles within these doors will keep your home at a comfortable temperature all year round for up to 25 years!

Another benefit of uPVC is that it can be recycled, making it a great choice not simply for you, but for the environment too.

What are the benefits of aluminium bifold doors?

Our aluminium bi-fold doors achieve U-values as low as 1.5 W/m²K, helping to create a warmer, more thermally efficient home for up to 45 years.

Aluminium is one of the strongest (and most sustainable) materials on the market, boasting enhanced security to keep you and your family safe and sound.

Aluminium is a very low maintenance material, a simple clean every few months will keep your bifold doors looking as good as new.

Are aluminium bifold doors better than uPVC bifold doors?

Overall, no door material or style is superior to the other. The choice of what door material or style you decide on is merely down to personal preference and style to match the interior design of your home.

Regardless of what door style you decide on, you can have the peace of mind that all our bifold doors can achieve incredibly low U-values with A-rated energy efficiency as standard. They have also passed PAS24: 2016 Secured by Design standards, and hold a 10-year guarantee, so you can rest assured that you can enjoy your bifold doors for years to come.

Another benefit of our bifold doors is that, depending on the available space, you can choose between three and seven opening panels, and even personalise your new doors with your choice of a powder coat finish in over 150+ RAL colours! So, you could opt for Pure White (RAL 9010) uPVC bifold doors, or Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) aluminium bifold doors. Whatever your vision, we are confident we can create bespoke bifold doors for you.
