Thu 10 Dec 2015
The popularity of bi-fold doors is the highest it has ever been.A recent survey by prestige London property agentsr h 8Uairsons puts them second only to wooden flooring as the most desirable design feature demanded by homebuyers. Home-style experts at The Times, too, have identified them as a must-have, alongside wood burners and open plan living. Aluminium is fast rivalling PVC-U as consumers' bi-fold material of choice. Insight Data's Window Industry Report 2014 highlighted that nearly 5.000 UK installers now offer aluminium windows and doors. At their best, aluminium bi-fold doors can remove the distinction between indoors and out, bringing light into a property while still delivering security in line with the latest regulations, provided, of course, that the highest standards of quality in manufacture and installation are adhered CO. You might think that a well made product. delivered precisely to your specification, where and when you need it. sounds fairly simple. However, pinpoint accuracy in measurement is crucial for a correct installation; you can't simply measure an old window and specify the same size.This, in turn, can cause longer lead times in the turnaround from order to delivery if the right parts aren't in stock. Time after time, we hear stories of poorly-constructed doors, manufacturing delays, or products which need adjustment on site - throwing the whole design out of kilter. I know all about the issues that can prevent a job going smoothly, because I spent many years running my own installation company.
