When buying a bi-folding door, it is important that you complete the following steps. This will ensure that you buy the right bi-folding door for your needs and that you are covered in every eventuality.
Do make sure you look at the bi-fold door you intend to buy. There can be lots of discrepancies in the quality of aluminium, the thickness of sight lines and the quality of glass used. Although the cost may look like a massive saving, there may be a huge reason for this.
Also ensure you check with guarantees and what is covered as weather related issues. At Clear View we have a comprehensive bi-fold guarantee (which ca be viewed here) covering you against a range of differing things.
Do make sure you get the aluminium door you want. Although very popular a bi-folding door may not be the best for your needs. If you are unsure speak to a professional such as ourselves so that you can visualise how the door will look and work in your home. There is certainly no point paying out for a bi-folding door if a patio or sliding door would provide you with the value and quality you need.
Also make sure you get testimonials or references form the company you use. No-one wants to get stung by a cowboy builder. For this reason we have genuine testimonials form our clients on our website and we will also be more than happy to provide you details of clients and customers (at their permission) if you wish to talk to them about your needs.
So that is what you should always do, but what shouldn’t you do. You should never just buy a door based on the price. You do always get what you pay for when it comes to bi-folding doors so make sure you get one for the right value and not on the cheap. Also when it comes to payment, make sure these are established up front. We have competitive payment terms and will never charge for additional work once on site or demand payment before something is done whilst we are there.
