Deciding which doors to walk through for your patio can be a difficult decision. You might want bi-folding doors, sliding doors, or uPVC doors, but you just can’t quite decide on which is best. We love installing all three and we’ve completed lots of jobs that include these styles in the past.

Sliding doors or bi-folding doors?

So when you’re deciding which is best, it really depends on just how much space and money you’ve got.

Open living room aluminium sliding patio doors

Sliding doors are perhaps more common and typical, it might be a single sliding door or a double, but in essence, they simply slide out of the way and create an opening for you. Regularly they’re floor to ceiling and they’ll open up roughly 50% of the space they accommodate, depending on the style you choose. Good for smaller spaces, where inward or outward opening doors are more restricted, the size of these doors allows more natural light and potentially a great view too.

Open Kitchen Bi-folding aluminium doors

Bi-folding doors have increased in popularity a lot in recent year, especially with larger extensions and open plan kitchens for example. The great thing with bi-folding doors is that you can choose whether they open inwardly or outwardly, which can be determined by the space you have available. It’s important to consider the space they do take though when they’re open and bunched up; if you’ve plenty of space, this won’t be a problem, but it’s definitely a factor that will play a part in your final decision.

They take a little more looking after, because there are more bits that move, but it’s not a huge implication of choosing these doors.

Both doors are great and very practical, offering good ventilation in the hotter months as well as being large enough to accommodate a great views with aluminium options being available for both which offers great functionality and robustness. If you’re having difficult deciding still, let us know and we’ll be glad to take a look at your plans and help you decide which option might be best suited to you and your home.

Don’t just take our word for it

Nothing pleases us more than happy customers. So, here are just a few reasons why we remain the first choice for savvy homeowners, trade installers, and builders in Huddersfield and Yorkshire.

We are delighted with our new windows and doors. The lads from Emereo were punctual, polite and efficient.  The work took two days to complete and the Emereo staff left our house clean and tidy both days. We are so impressed with the blinds in our french windows. They are so neat and unobtrusive, whilst giving us the privacy we require.

We have already noticed a difference to the warmth in the house and a distinct lack of draughts that we experience with our old windows and doors.

I would not hesitate to recommend Emereo to friends and family.  Andy runs a great company with well trained staff and high standards from start to finish.  I cannot thank them enough.

Highly recommend. Efficient, excellent workmanship, clean up after themselves. No decorating required afterwards. Finished mine in a day. Brilliant job – thankyou.

Spot on from initial quote to install. Entire house refitted and windows look amazing. Impressed with how clean and tidy the house was after all the work the lads put in. Cannot recommend enough.

RichardHuddersfield

I love my new doors thank you. The lads have done a great job.

The white interior of the inner door and the choice I made for the glass with your help makes a huge difference to the light coming in. It’s really lovely thank you.

It’s also great having the same key for both doors.

Thanks for all your help Andy and I will definitely recommend you to friends and family. Very friendly and supportive – great customer service
