When you’re planning to replace your patio doors, you want to choose the best product for your home. Bifold doors have become increasingly popular with UK homeowners over the last decade. Their innovative opening action and impressive appearance have been a hit with people wanting something different for their home.

Sliding patio doors are also a popular choice. With their capacity to glaze a larger area than other door types and their smooth sliding action, they have remained popular in the face of fierce competition. Both bifold doors and sliding doors are suitable for a range of property types and applications. Your choice will usually be influenced by a combination of personal preference, expectations, and the style of your home.

At Pears Home Improvements, we install both bifold doors and sliding patio doors. Both have their distinct advantages to you, the homeowner. To help you to make a fully informed decision, here are some of the benefits and features of bifold doors and sliding patio doors.
