What is a Bifold door?
A bifold door is a type of door that folds in on itself, usually in sections, to create an opening. It is a popular choice for spaces that require wide access and a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor areas. Bifold doors are often used in East London homes for their modern and sleek design.
One of the most popular back door options of the past few years, bifold doors present a modern choice for homeowners in East London. There are, though, some bifold doors alternatives if required when it comes to aspects such as property type or the amount of space available.
What are the benefits of bifold doors?
One of the main benefits that bifold doors provide is a significant increase in natural light. Through their strong glass-based design, they are able to illuminate the exterior of your property and ensure that any gloomy spaces are flooded with additional light with the added benefit of double glazing, bifold doors also provide improved insulation and energy efficiency for your home preventing condensation and reducing energy costs.
Our aluminium bifold doors add another dimension to the typical advantages that the style offers. Aluminium is one of the strongest materials available and, as a result, allows for some very slim designs. In turn, there is more room for glazing and space.
With aluminium in particular, the natural strength also lends itself to providing increased security as well as general durability. Thermal efficiency is also a plus point for bifold doors, with our selection featuring U values of up to 1.5W(m2K) and impressive thermally broken aluminium profiles. There is, of course, the aesthetic appeal that bifold doors with matching aluminium windows offer is often second to none.
Sliding patio doors for small, terraced houses in East London
Another popular choice when it comes to back doors, sliding patio doors are ideal for homes that require a bit of extra space.
They operate in a way that allows homeowners to make the most of the space that they have available, while also presenting a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors.
The sideways operation of the sliding doors is a useful feature for saving space, with other hinged alternatives needing more area with which to work.

French doors for traditional East London properties
A truly traditional back door choice, French doors are steeped in history and classic aesthetics. While they are ideal for traditional properties, modern designs allow them to fit flawlessly into more contemporary homes.
