Transitioning from winter to spring: Trade bifold doors and what to expect
8 March 2024 | General | Written by

As we bid farewell to the cold winter months, it’s time for installers and customers alike to start thinking about the transition into spring. With warmer weather on the horizon, many homeowners will be looking for ways to bring a touch of nature indoors while enjoying seamless access between their indoor and outdoor spaces. This is where trade bifold doors come in.

Trade bifold doors have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their versatility, functionality, and aesthetic appeal. Alongside patio doors and French doors, aluminium bifolds offer an excellent solution for creating expansive openings that allow natural light into homes while providing uninterrupted views of the outside world. In this blog post, we’ll discuss what you can expect when transitioning from winter to spring with trade bifold doors.

Increased demand:

With longer days and milder temperatures approaching, there is typically an increase in demand for home improvement projects during springtime. Homeowners are eager to refresh their living spaces after being cooped up indoors throughout winter. As an installer considering adding or upgrading bifold doors as part of your product range or project plans respectively; now is the perfect time!

Energy efficiency benefits:

Energy efficiency is a big priority for homeowners and during colder months like winter when energy consumption tends towards heating homes more frequently, having efficient glazing solutions such as aluminium bi-fold doors becomes crucially important to help retain heat and help save money on heating bills. Aluminium bi-fold doors incorporate advanced thermal insulation features that also help regulate indoor temperatures to keep the interior comfortable in spring and summer.

Enhanced connectivity:

Spring signifies new beginnings with a change of season and the same goes for our living spaces. Trade bifold doors provide an opportunity to seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor areas, allowing homeowners to fully appreciate the beauty of their surroundings without compromising on comfort or convenience. Bifold doors create a wide and unobstructed entryway when fully opened, facilitating easy access to patios, gardens, or balconies.
