Standard aluminium bi fold doors can cost anywhere from £2,000 to £6,000, with the total price varying based on several factors.
Of course, these are just averages – we try to keep our work affordable in every situation.
Some features may come with an extra cost, but the main advantages make up for it. For example, bi fold doors cost more if they are double glazed, but they also retain heat better, saving you money on energy and keeping you warm in the cooler months.
Our sales team always try to get accurate numbers on the bi-folds we produce, so you can talk to us for more specific breakdowns of your expected costs. The total cost can be affected by factors like:
The materials we use for each of our bifold doors will dramatically change the total cost. For example, wooden bifold doors are often cheaper than aluminium ones with double glazing, but a more expensive one often comes with benefits that cheaper door types would not have.
Composite bifold doors and UPVC bifold doors can be even cheaper but are often meant to be used in highly specific ways and lack the added strength of aluminium bifold doors.
If you are unsure what to choose, talk to our expert staff to get a breakdown of what we can offer and which materials best suit your needs.
The larger your new exterior bifold doors, the more they cost. Adding an extra third of a meter to aluminium bifold doors can bump the price by at least £100 or more on average.
A larger size means more material, more time spent installing the bifold doors, and more maintenance work needing to be done. However, we aim to keep our prices cheaper than average where possible.
Colour can sometimes influence the cost of bifold doors, especially if that colour means a specially-painted design.
We can create bespoke bifold doors that suit your needs perfectly, but bespoke changes like unique colour palettes may require extra time and effort.
A bespoke design for external bifold doors takes more time and effort than simply installing some pre-prepared bifold doors.
However, we are more than willing to take on one-of-a-kind projects that leave you with unique, entirely bespoke bifold door designs that suit your specifications perfectly.
Our aluminium bifold doors are some of the most popular we create, especially as exterior bifold doors.
Our aluminium bifold doors systems are constructed to the same high quality standard.
We offer a range of different colours, styles, and sizes; all used to construct the perfect aluminium bifold doors for your needs:
We can offer aluminium bifold doors in anthracite grey (RAL 7016), black, white, brown, and many more. Anthracite grey is one of our baseline colours, but we can create countless unique designs and colour combinations as requested.
Colours will not usually influence the cost, but something like anthracite grey will be cheaper than a custom-mixed colour.
In some neighbourhoods, you may have to check in with your local authority if you are getting a highly custom design done, just to make sure the bi fold doors would be appropriate.
Our standard size options include:
Each bifold door set we install is fitted to that home, meaning we will not leave gaps in your existing opening. We create all of our aluminium bi fold doors to suit the space we have been given, ensuring that the end result fits flawlessly with your home.
Our standard designs are as follows:
Like any other element of our aluminium bifold doors, we can design them to suit client needs.
If you want to talk over the full details of the design you are looking for with your bifold door, contact us, and our experts can help you develop a plan that works.
Powder coating our aluminium frames has allowed us to make even stronger aluminium bifold doors.
A simple powder coating over even the most basic anthracite grey paint can provide a set of doors with numerous benefits, from higher durability to many smooth surfaces.
Powder-coated frames gain smoother surfaces, a stronger finish, a more durable design, improved weatherproofing, and a longer lifespan.
They also look much nicer, leading to better aesthetics that improve any colour and design.
This means that your door needs less maintenance, lasts longer, does not wear out as easily and suffers less visual damage.
If you care a lot about looks, it never hurts to have an extra protective coating over your door just to keep it safe and smooth.
There are various types of bifold doors available. We have listed some of the most popular types below.
Our slimline bi fold doors are designed with a narrow frame, using lower-density metal to ensure that the new bifold doors are still durable and reliable in the long term. These open up more space for windows or decorations around the doors.
The added slim sightlines also give you more natural light, making these an ideal choice for external doors leading to an outdoor space as bifold patio doors.
Our wide range of aluminium bifold door types can all be adapted to suit our clients’ preferences.
From standard options like sliding doors and automatic doors to something highly specific, we can choose the perfect door opening system, design elements, size and bespoke tweaks to meet your needs.
Triple-glazed aluminium doors provide excellent acoustic and thermal performance, giving you greater privacy and comfort.
We can triple-glaze any doors as needed, making it an easy operation with excellent long-term results.
We can offer many different external bi fold doors for use in residential spaces, including glass sliding doors and sliding patio doors.
Whether that means laminated glass or blinds with slim sight lines, we can help produce some excellent door options that perfectly suit your aesthetic preferences.
We are some of the most competitive door installers regarding commercial bi folding doors – from supermarkets and independent shops to offices and retail spaces.
These can boast the same features as our bi-fold doors for residential homes, ranging from laminated glass to integral blinds.
As external bifold doors, they can also be used to protect the property, both from weather-related damage or possible break-ins.

Our selection of high-security bi folding doors can give our customers (and especially retail shops) much greater safety.
For example, we can install a multi-point locking system and toughened safety glass to make forced intrusions, especially hard or integral blinds, to prevent thieves from peeping in ahead of time.
High-security bi folding doors can deter criminals and give you greater peace of mind in commercial and residential spaces.
Whether used for a living space or a high street shop, a multi-point locking system can reinforce even the simplest external bifold doors.
Our experts can give you improved external bifold doors that provide much greater security and protection through our high-security options and bespoke design work.
Even small tweaks, like a concealed track, can provide security benefits for your bi folding doors in the long term.
Bifold doors are used in all kinds of commercial and residential spaces.
Commercial examples of bi-fold door use include:
In residential homes, it is very common to see folding or sliding patio doors, as well as occasional internal bi fold doors designs that separate a room into two spaces.
They also appear in office buildings as high-traffic door options or as a lead door into hospital wings.
The best new bi-folding doors depend on what you are looking for. A single secure master door may require high-security measures such as upgraded shoot bolts.
In contrast, a door meant for a seamless transition between spaces can benefit from intermediate panels with improved hinges.
All of our doors comply with safety and security standards, but we can design some for specific roles or uses. Contact our experts if you want a specific bi-folding door for your property.
Bifold doors are simply doors that fold backwards in sections, sliding to one side and turning so that they can fold down against one wall.
This allows them to be completely pulled out of the way, opening up the entire door area to the space on the other side.
Bifold doors can be designed to open inwards or outwards, depending on your needs.
This can be important for folding patio doors or other doors with more room on one side than the other.
We put a wide range of premium materials and expert knowledge into every door we install, from simple white bifold doors to unique reinforced French doors or visually-stunning concertina doors.
The installation process of bifolding doors may sound simple, but it requires expert care to handle them correctly. The entire process only takes a few steps:
Bifold doors are no more draught-prone than regular doors. They can also be double glazed and triple-glazed as needed, improving your property’s energy efficiency while retaining plenty of heat.
Double glazed bi-folding doors are easy to install, and we can tweak the designs to minimize draughts while improving overall energy efficiency.
A sliding door, automatic, and even revolving doors can be suitable alternatives to a typical bi-fold door, depending on the situation.
Many people like patio doors for their home or living space, and sliding doors are popular for high street shops.
Bifold doors can be a great addition to any property and offer practical and aesthetic value.
