How Much Do Bifold Doors Cost?
What affects the Cost of a Bifold Door?
There are a number of factors that affect price. The first and by far the most important is quality. This can be compared to buying a car.
- You could go out and buy a cheap run-around that will get you from A to B.
- You could also go out and buy an Audi (other car manufacturers are available) that will also get you from A to B, but which will last longer, look better and operate smoother.
More Expensive Might Not Mean Better
Always try and see the doors you intend on buying in person. Just because they are more expensive than another set, it doesn’t mean they are necessarily better quality.
How Size & Number of Panels Affect the Bifold Door Price
The second thing to affect the price is size. Thirdly is the number of panels or leaves. The more panels you have the more it will cost. This is because there is more material involved, more running gear, more hinges and handles etc.
The Origin aluminium bifold door can have panels up to 1200mm wide allowing for less panels in a given width. For example if you had an opening of 3200mm, most manufacturers (with a maximum panel width of 1000mm) would say you have to have 4 panels, but with the Origin you could still have 3 panels.
This not only costs less, but also means less aluminium, therefore giving you more light flooding the room.
What Else Determines Pricing?
Other factors that can affect price are colour, handles, trickle vents and whether it is supply only or supply and installation.
