One of the first questions we are asked by customers is which type of bifold door do we recommend?

In terms of cost upvc will provide the cheapest bifolding door solution, timber will be the most expensive and aluminium will be somewhere in the middle. However, the choice of door must be a personal decision based on your specific requirements, the type of structure that the door is being installed into and the finished look that you wish to create. Whilst cost is of course an important element to be considered it is important that you don't make a decision based on cost alone.

Here's our quick guide to each type of door...
