Your door installation in 6 simple steps

Posted on 18.07.2023

Ready to update your doors but don’t know where to begin? Here are our 6 simple steps to your ideal door installation.

List your features

It’s always easier to choose your door when you know what features you want and how you’re going to use them. Whether you’re looking for an entrance door, sliding door or bifold door, a list can help you narrow down your search.

Research all the available styles, configurations and features available, so you can find the options that would best suit your home. It’s easy to prioritise a door that looks pretty, but don’t forget to consider energy efficiency, security features and types of glazing too.

At Bowalker Doors, we offer several styles of composite doors, bifold doors and sliding doors, which can be viewed on our website or in our Hickstead showroom.

Visit a showroom

Seeing products in action is always the best way to work out if they’ll fit in with your home.

A showroom is where you can iron out the specifics of your door, thinking about the colour and finish. Make use of the expert team available and ask them any questions you may have about the products. At our Hickstead showroom, we have a variety of products on display, and our team are on hand to help you find your perfect fit.

Find a reliable fitter

Using sites like Checkatrade and TrustATrader will show you which installers have been vetted and reviewed independently. Don’t forget to check reviews to judge the general opinion on their service and products.

At Bowalker Doors, we commit to a personal approach and aim to achieve 100% customer satisfaction.

Arrange a visit

Once you’ve decided on an installer, arrange for them to visit your property to accurately measure the space and ensure a perfect fit.

If by this point you’re still undecided, it’s time to tick things off! Finalise your choices for hardware, glazing and fittings and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask your installer.

Wait for the installation

You’ve done the hard part, and now things get exciting. An installation can be disruptive to your daily life, so make sure you and your installation team are on the same schedule when it comes to work being carried out. Communication is key!

Show off your new home

Your installation is complete, and it’s time to show it off to everyone invited. Why not also take some pictures of your new patio door, bifold doors or sliding doors, tagging your installer to share the love.
