Transform Your Kitchen Space

Hello, my name is Katy and this blog is dedicated to how you can improve the interior of your home. Last year, I renovated my kitchen and it completely changed my life. Although I am really happy with the results, I didn't expect it to be so challenging. I kind of jumped in at the deep end, ripped my old kitchen out and then realised I had no idea how to install a new one or even what design I would like to choose. Thankfully, my friend who is a bit of an expert at these things guided me through the entire process and I learnt a lot of useful things. Since then, I have started to rennovate the rest of my home and garden.

Benefits Of Using Aliminium For Bifold Doors

Patio doors have changed for the better in recent years. It used to be common to have regular sliding doors made of uPVC; these could only open halfway, as the door frame didn't allow more scope for the door to be opened. Bifold doors completely eliminate this issue, as they can be opened with just a couple of inches of space needed to hold the doors. Further, aluminium bifold doors come with a host of other benefits. Take a look at some of these benefits.

Light Yet Sturdy

Aluminium bifold doors are light due to the nature of the aluminium. Aluminium is also a very strong material, meaning that they can house heavy and large sections of glass. This, in turn, means that the frames used when manufacturing aluminium bifold doors can be kept to a minimum, allowing the maximum amount of light into a designated area or room.

Good For The Environment

In today's society, being able to use a material that has been recycled is very important to many people; in fact, it is one of the first things they look for when purchasing new goods. Aluminium is one of the easiest materials to recycle and does not lose its integrity, even when recycled several times over. This makes aluminium the perfect choice for conscientious customers.

Easy To Maintain

Aluminium has some great properties: it will not rust over time, it doesn't require painting and repainting, it will not warp. It is also impervious to the weather, meaning that the bifold doors will not expand in the heat, causing the door to stick. Aluminium bifold doors only require a quick wipe down every so often to keep them looking like new.

Thermal Efficiency

Although many people do not associate aluminium with thermal efficiency, this is a mistaken point of view. Many aluminium bifold doors have thermal brakes designed into them. This will decrease the heat transfer through all of the frame. If you desire, you can combine this with some energy efficient glass. The aluminium bifold doors are a great way of keeping a room or area at a comfortable and relaxing temperature.

Longer Lifespan

Wooden patio door frames, as well as the traditional uPVC door frames, have a shorter lifespan than aluminium based bifold doors. Due to the strength and durability of the aluminium, people purchasing this type of door can expect the door to last a good deal longer than their counterparts made of different types of materials.

Many homeowners purchase aluminium bifold doors, viewing them as an investment in the property. For more information, contact a business such as AMJ Window Solutions.
