Are aluminium or timber bifolds better?
Doors Apart specialise in fitting timber bifold doors. Timber is a perfect choice for bifolds as it create a sense of warmth and ties in naturally with the outdoors.
When it comes to deciding between timber or aluminium bifolds, its largely down to aesthetics and price. We only work with timber bifolds as we feel there is no comparison to the look of real wood bifolds. Moreover, it is a renewable resource. so better for the environment and fully recyclable. Whilst aluminium bifolds are quite contemporary, timber get all the “looks” and are most definitely more distinguished and popular as ever.
TIP before purchasing timber bifold doors!
It is our experience that the main component limiting the life expectancy of bifold doors is the use of inferior tracking and roller systems. Therefore ensure the tracking system you purchase is durable and high quality stainless steel.
