Why choose our Bi-fold Doors UK?
At Just Value Doors we understand the importance of 'quality'. When you buy a bi-fold door from us, that's exactly what you get. Purchasing an external bi-fold door is a large investment and one you want to get right first time.
For a bi-fold door UK to last and operate well it needs to be built using high quality materials: it should have superior glazing, be fabricated correctly and fitted by installers with experience in folding sliding doors. As with any type of concertina door it's important to remember that further adjustment is often required after installation. Moving parts such as hinges, rollers and locks - and even the glass itself –need time to "settle" into place after being opened and closed a number of times.
As you may have already found out, bi-fold door costs vary considerably depending on where you look - it can be shocking how prices differ. As with any company selling cheap bi fold doors you should be wary of quality so do your research. Our company reviews speak for themselves. We truly offer "Value" without compromise.

Sizing Options and Limitations?
When choosing bi-folding patio doors the most important thing (apart from the company supplying it of course) is to measure the width carefully. The cost of a bi-fold door is determined by two main things: the overall size (dimensions) and the number of bi-folding glass door panes.
Where budget is tight, it is possible to minimise cost without changing overall dimensions. For example a width of 3000mm can use 3, 4 or 5 panel bi-fold doors. The more doors, the higher the cost so the cheapest option is a 3 door configuration.
Integrated blinds for bi-folding doors

Blinds for UK bi-fold doors offer raising, lowering and tilting options that are operated by the use of magnets. Raising and lowering is controlled by a continuous cord loop that drives the external magnet you move up and down on the edge of the glass pane. Enquire for details.

Energy efficiency and the thermal upgrade
With uPVC bi folding doors often covering large areas it's important to keep heat loss to an absolute minimum. We use thermally-efficient uPVC frames with our folding patio doors as standard. The frames have separate chambers running inside to work as cavities reducing heat loss. We also use double glazed and toughened glass as standard, whilst still keeping the folding glass patio door cost as low as possible.
Our folding track doors can also be further upgraded to reduce heat loss by up-rating the glass make-up. Despite slightly increase folding patio door costs, the long term performance savings are worthwhile. Find out more about the thermal upgrade.
