Would highly recommend Marlin windows. Installed bifold doors with meticulous planning and precision. Had a tour of the workshop and assisted through the purchase and installation process ensuring perfect fit of clearly an excellent aluminium product. Can’t recommend enough!
Have recommended to others and our builder said they were the best supplier and fitter they had ever used.
Imagine ourselves opening up the new Bi-fold doors, when it’s right it’s what we call our Nina Simone moment, as more than likely we will want to sing:
Of course it is possible, hard to believe I know, that Nina wasn’t singing about bi-fold doors.
Thank-you Marlin Windows for a great job! You designed and built all the windows in our renovation project including sliding doors and bi-folds with care and consideration. From our first contact with Adrian through to the final fitting, the service was exceptional, no request was too much trouble. The installation team were great, very friendly and thorough. I have no hesitation in recommending Marlin, we are very pleased with the results.
What if the room we want to open up is at the corner of the property? What if the ideal outside space wraps around the corner? This might seem like a problem, but actually bi-folds might well be perfect.
As long as suitable structural support is in place, bi-folds can extend such as to fully open up the corner. This makes a dramatic difference to the feel of the space, as, in effect, two walls have been drawn back.
Sashes can fold left or right, internally or externally, so consider which would make most sense for the opening. Choose to place the opening at the side so the sashes all fold one way to one end, which creates a single entrance door for easy access.
Or choose a middle opening to give the option of a double door.
Removing brickwork to be replaced with bi-fold doors is not difficult, however it obviously needs expertise (usually your builder) to ensure that you maintain the structural integrity of your home.
Top hung doors need a strong lintel to bear the weight. Bottom rolling doors are supported at the foot where a damp-proof course membrane is laid.
Take the opportunity while creating the opening to allow for the frame to be sunk into the floor to create that ideal low threshold and seamless transition from indoor to out. Any low threshold opening needs to be fully weather sealed.
Many thanks for supplying and installing my new bi-fold doors. The guys did an excellent job today removing my old doors and then installing my new bi-fold doors. They managed to get the old doors and frame out cleanly and then installed the new doors very neatly. All in all an excellent job well done. The new bi-fold doors look really good!
Look for glazing with a U value of 1.8W/m²K or lower.
This ensures glazing exceeds the minimum thermal requirement for Building Regulations and as such will be an efficient insulator against adverse weather.
Timber does require regular painting to keep the wood sound. Aluminium requires virtually no upkeep.
Powder coating means a huge range of colours and textures are available including stunning anodised finishes and textured paint.
We can mix it up by choosing a different colour on the inside to out.
View the extensive range of RAL colours along with two ranges of textured paint finishes here.
Bi-fold doors are very desirable, although not necessarily adding value, make a house very saleable.
Some of the worlds best homes use bi-fold doors as a dramatic feature, folding back entire walls of glass to give them a real wow factor which you can emulate in your own home.
Had all our windows replaced with aluminum including 2 sets of bi-folds. It took a number of visits to the factory to meet with Adrian and Hannah who were both very patient and helped us choose the correct lay out and color. Very pleased with the result. Their fitters Peter and Ryan were also good to work with. Highly recommended.
