Why choose Bifold doors for my home? 

Whether you’re looking to add value to your property for resale or just wanting to give your home a bit of a facelift, the installation of bifold doors is a good way to do this. 
There’re many advantages to bifold doors in comparison to other types of doors. 
Replacing your patio doors for bifold doors is a positive step towards increasing the value of your home. Unlike sliding patio doors or French doors, Bifold doors can fold completely open, giving a smoother open plan feel. Bifold doors can maximise your space as they fold into each other to stack flat against the wall. 
In this blog, we’ll be discussing the ways in which installing Bifold doors can increase the value of your home. 

Improve the aesthetic of your home. 

Much like with people, first impressions of houses count! The addition of bifold doors will instantly give your home the WOW factor, impressing any guest. This is because bifold doors instantly make your home feel more open and spacious, while maximising your views to the outdoors. If your property has a great garden, this could be a major selling point. 
Bifold doors also give a more contemporary and modern look to your home.  
Nothing says luxury like a large set of sleek bifold doors stretching from wall to wall, creating a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors. 
At Alternative Roofing Solutions, you can choose from a wide range of RAL colours for your Bifold doors, allowing us to create the perfect feature for your home. 

Bifold doors let in more natural light. 

The amount of natural light you can get in your home has become a key selling point for home buyers. Natural light can make rooms feel larger and airier. Bifold doors can help to optimise the amount of natural light your rooms receive as they can transform essentially an entire wall into glass if you choose. 
As an added bonus, natural lighting also has multiple health benefits, including an increase of your Vitamin D intake, improved mood and productivity, and help in fighting off the effects of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). 
Lastly, the more natural light coming into your space, the less you’ll feel the need to use artificial lighting, saving you money on energy bills. 

Create the indoor-outdoor experience. 

Open plan living has become very desirable in the last few years, with many buyers searching for a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience. Bringing the outside in and making everything feel more open adds a sense of luxury which is attractive to buyers. Bifold doors can open up your home to your garden, creating a flawless gateway from any room of your choice to the outdoors. 
One of the biggest challenges when renovating a home is perfecting that indoor-outdoor flow. Bifold doors make the ideal addition to any home with a patio or decking. Opening your bifold doors creates an extension of your home into your garden, optimising the use of your outdoor space. 

Advantages of aluminium Bifold doors. 

A lot of decisions go into choosing the perfect doors for your home. One of these decisions includes the material you want your doors to be made of. When it comes to bifold doors, the two dominant materials to choose from are uPVC and aluminium. 
Although uPVC is a cheaper option to begin with, over time, you could end up spending more on the upkeep of your uPVC doors. This is due to maintenance and replacements of uPVC compared to aluminium doors, which is why we recommend using aluminium for your bifold doors. This is because aluminium is extremely durable and long lasting. Choosing a set of Bifold doors made from a stronger material will be more cost effective in the long term and will make the feature appear more elegant. 
Aluminium also has the advantage of aesthetics. Aluminium frames are thinner than uPVC, achieving a more modern look and allowing for more glass to be used. This also leads to optimised light being let in, brightening up your home even more.
