How Much Are Bifold Doors?
Are you considering installing bifold doors for your home or property? If yes, then you’d probably want to know how much it would cost so you can prepare a budget and start planning. The cost of bifold doors, however, is dependent on a wide array of factors which includes the number of panels, size of the bifold doors, internal or external installation, material used in making the bifold doors, type of the glass as well as upgrading the locking mechanisms.
Of all these factors, the most significant influences are both the material and the number of panels to be used. For bifold doors with 3 panels, the potential cost will range from £1,200 to £2,500 depending on the materials used, be it aluminium, timber or uPVC. For a 4 panel bifold door, the price will range between £1,400 to £2,800 depending on the either of the three aforementioned materials. And finally, for a 5 panel bifold door, the cost will be between £2,500 to £5,500, also depending on the three materials.
When calculating the cost of bifold doors, it’s also important to factor in the cost of installation as the task requires specialized skills and tools, therefore it’s not advisable to be made a DIY project. The cost of installing a bifold door will also be influenced by multiple factors such as the bifold door material, the number of panels, your location in the UK, the installer of your choice as well as whether or not there’s an existing opening that’s suitable for bifold doors. The price will ultimately boil down to the installer you hire, so it’s advisable to contact multiple professionals and compare their services and quotes. For the easiest installation where there’s an existing opening in the wall, the price will range between £150 to £500. However, for more complicated installations, the price could be above £500.
