Why You Should Consider Installing Aluminum Bi-Fold Doors

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Bi-fold doors have become very popular among both residential and commercial property owners. This is because of the contemporary design of the doors, their durability, and the fact that it is possible to let in a lot of natural light when using these doors. On top of all this, they are a popular choice for commercial property owners because they enable rooms to be contracted or expanded easily to suit different purposes. According to a market report, the market is expected to grow steadily at a rate of 7% per annum between now and the year 2020. A Brisbane company offering a variety of folding doors would be a good place to start your research if you wish to install folding doors.

Aluminum is one of the most common materials used to make bi-fold doors. Other popular material choices are timber and uPVC. Each of these materials has its pros and cons. However, aluminum is the most preferred choice because of the numerous benefits it offers over the other two. This article highlights a few reasons why you should consider installing aluminum bi-fold doors.

  • Affordable and durable

While aluminum bi-fold doors might be more expensive to purchase than bi-fold doors made from other materials, you should consider the cost savings you will make when it comes to maintenance and replacement if the need arises. Aluminum bi-fold doors require minimal maintenance and they are also very durable. The future cost savings you will enjoy justifying the relatively high upfront costs. Unlike other materials like uPVC which wear out very fast, aluminum will serve you for years with very little problems, if any at all. One thing that makes aluminum very durable, even when used for outside doors, is the fact that it is a sturdy material that does not easily contract or expand when exposed to extreme weather conditions. This makes its performance very reliable and predictable, unlike uPVC which easily warps when exposed to extreme conditions. Timber, on the other hand, is very pricey, yet it is still not as durable as aluminum. It absorbs moisture and is prone to warping and rotting over time. All these factors considered aluminum is the best material for bi-fold doors.

  • A wide range of finishes

You can choose from a wide range of finishes for your aluminum bi-fold doors. Therefore, if you love the look and feel of timber, you would be pleased to know that you can still achieve an amazing wood grain effect with aluminum. You, therefore, get to enjoy all the benefits of timber but without having to spend so much on purchasing and installation, or incur high repair and maintenance expenses.

  • Energy-efficient

While aluminum is not a thermally efficient material, aluminum doors are fitted with an insulating material to prevent the transfer of heat between the inside and outside of a room. This makes your home or commercial establishment more energy-efficient and therefore helps you cut down on your utility bills. Today, you can obtain a certificate showing how energy-efficient your home is and this will be of great help when the time comes to sell your home. It is also just good to know that you are helping to preserve the environment for future generations.
