Unlike a patio door that slides open, bi-fold doors open in a concertina style. Typically, the door slides open while its panels stack neatly together against the wall. This creates a wonderful feeling of open space and allows light to flood in to your home.
There are so many different door designs on the market today in a wide variety of materials and colours that it can make choosing what is best for your home a difficult decision.
Whether it’s a front or back door, bi-folds, patio or French doors, you want your doors to look fantastic in your home. You will also want them to provide you with guaranteed security features to protect you and your family……so where do you start?
