Choosing the right patio door for your home is a big decision. Not only do you need to consider how it will look on the outside of your house, but also what’s going to happen when it comes time to open and close them (inwards or outwards?). Patio doors are great for letting in natural light or air, as well as creating a seamless transition between the inside and the outside. Check out our article on how to choose the right patio door for your house!

Bi-fold doors

Bi-fold doors are a great option for homeowners who want to maximise their space without compromising on style. They add an elegant touch to any room, and can be customised according to your requirements and preferences. If you’re in the market for a new patio door, consider bi-folds as one of your options. Also, if you’re looking for frames that are lightweight while still being strong, bi-fold doors are the best choice.

Sliding doors

Sliding doors are a great option for those who want to open up their home and garden without compromising on space. They’re made from durable, energy-efficient materials that can be customised plus they’re environmentally friendly! Sliding doors are a perfect choice for your home if you want to enjoy the natural light and views that they offer while still having privacy. 

Bi-fold vs sliding doors

The main difference between bi-fold doors and sliding doors is the mechanism they use to open. Bi-fold doors are a traditional door that folds up from the bottom of its frame, while sliding patio doors work by being pulled across their tracks on either side of their opening track. Sliding patio doors can be opened in any direction or at any height without having to move furniture out of the way first like with folding panels. So if you’re looking for convenience and easier access this may be your best choice! But if you want an aesthetically pleasing design and have plenty of space, then go for a bi-fold door system instead since it offers unmatched style and durability.

From the first moment when Arthur came round to advise, measure-up and quote for the job we felt we were in good hands. And his team of installers provided the best service. I always think that the best test is if something needs further attention and in this case they returned promptly to fix a small issue and nothing was too much trouble. Our new doors have transformed the back of our house and we highly recommend this company for work of the highest quality. Thank you Arthur and team!

We got our back and front doors replaced by E&A Windows and we couldn't be happier with the job they did. Erez was so helpful as took the time to come to our home to give us a quote, explaining all our options thoroughly and clearly without being pressuring in the slightest. The quality of both doors was fantastic and Adrian’s installation was fast and completed to a very high standard. He was also very helpful. We would highly recommend E&A Windows and will definitely use them again for any future double glazing needs. Thanks so much!

Very professional service! During my initial consultation, I was fortunate enough to deal with the owner of the company. He visited my property and spent a few hours talking me through design options and his recommendations. His recommendations were very insightful and ensured my build looked elegant and modern while retaining the functionality required for an active family of 4. The build process was equally professional with the construction team arriving when they said, treating my property with respect and cleaning up after they finished each day...something not often done by today's tradesmen. I've recommend this company to my parents.

I have just had new windows installed by E&A Windows and I must say I was very impressed. Arthur the owner of the company was so helpful and supportive throughout the process. I don't know much about windows so was skeptical at first, but I felt at ease very quickly. The guys who came to fit the windows (John, Christie and Peter) were absolute legends. They were extremely friendly and so so helpful, and the respect they gave me, my elderly parents and our home was exceptional. They took care of our home as if it was their own. I have never come across such professionals, not only did they do a fantastic job , but they went well beyond, seemed like nothing was impossible. They were with us only for 3 days but my parents were actually sad to see them go. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to fit new windows.
