Aluminium bifolding doors in modern and sleek designs

Thanks to the influence of Grand Designs and our desire for more light and space, bifold doors have become a phenomenon. If you have the space to stack the bifold doors to the left or right, or on both sides, when they are fully open, then they could be ideal for you. Bifold doors can be fully opened to around 90 percent of the full opening width, allowing you the flexibility to let in lots of fresh air and move around freely. On days when you don’t wish to open the doors fully, you can choose to have a single traffic door, allowing you easy access between your home and garden all year round.

Popular aluminium bifold door designs include black bifold doors, white and grey. The monochrome style will add a contemporary touch to any home. However, at Turkington, we can design and install new bifolding doors in a variety of door colour choices, including green, wood effect and cream. Another popular choice is to pair your bifold doors with a roof lantern.

    In general, planning permission is not usually needed for the installation of bifold doors as they fall under permitted development rights. This is because they typically have minimal impact on neighbours and the overall look of your home. However, it's important to consider that requirements may vary based on factors like property type, location and local regulations.

    To ensure compliance, it is recommended to consult with your local planning authority or seek professional advice regarding the specific requirements of the situation. By doing so, you can enjoy the benefits of bifold doors without additional planning applications.

    Are bifold doors high maintenance?

    Bifold doors are typically low maintenance, usually requiring cleaning and servicing once a year for most homeowners. However, in areas with high levels of dust or pollution, it is advisable to clean and service them every 3-6 months to prevent the accumulation of salt, dust or pollution that can impact their appearance and performance.

    The frames, often constructed from durable materials like uPVC or aluminium, are resistant to the elements. Maintaining their longevity and performance with minimal effort involves routine cleaning using mild soap and water, occasional lubrication, and of course following the manufacturer's guidelines.
