How do bifold doors add value to your home?

Did you know that some experts estimate that bi-folding doors can add around 5-10% to the resale value of a property? They are a wonderfully stylish and modern system that promises excellent thermal performance and fantastic security.

Aluminium bifold doors open in a concertina fashion, folding away to reveal a completely open space. The panels themselves are available in sizes up to 2.5m x 1m, which means they create a beautiful, wide-open aperture that gives an uninterrupted view of your outside space. This also makes them a perfect addition to any conservatory or other extension project, which would add further value to your home.

How efficient are aluminium bifold doors?

Aluminium bifold doors are an incredibly efficient system. In terms of thermal protection, they offer u-values as low as 1.5 W/m²K using a 1.0 W/m²K centre pane, meaning the large expanses of glass offer no loss in terms of protection from the cold. The doors themselves feature added thermal breaks to better insulate the profile against the elements.

Bowalker Doors’ range of aluminium bifold doors are also engineered to withstand wind loads of up to 1800pa and are water-tight up to 750pa. This makes them incredibly efficient, especially in the winter months when the weather turns cold and frosty. This is ideal for when you want to be sure your doors can insulate your home and prevent the outside from getting in.

Aluminium bifold doors also don’t compromise on security. The system is accredited to PAS 24, the enhanced security performance certification for door sets. They also come with multipoint locking as standard, for added peace of mind.
