Folding doors are often used as interior installations but many stores use them for quick close-up. The idea of this invention was to use the railing of a sliding door but to not take as much space. Cleverly, it was a success. The best place to have a folding door installed is inside a big room. The chances are your big room has big furniture. With a folding door, furniture is easier to transport inside and out. A larger space makes dining room tables easier to manoeuvre.
Unless you have ordered a pre-primed door, you will have to apply a stain-blocking primer – ideally two coats – to provide a base for the rest of your paint work. Pay special attention to the top and bottom of the door, which are particularly vulnerable to water penetration. Apply primer equally all over on both sides, not forgetting the cut-out holes for hardware. This will seal the timber and keep incoming moisture to a minimum, preventing swelling (which can make the door stick on the frame). Conversely, it will also help stop the door from drying out and shrinking in hot weather.
The cheapest is not the best and the most expensive also is not necessarily the best. A Bifold door is not just panels put together; it is an entire system where design, engineering precision and choice of hardware plays an important in the door’s looks and performance just as much as the bifold door installation does. Buying a well known international brand with local support is a good option.
