Bifolds can have wood, steel, uPVC or aluminum section frames. Wood can obstruct the view and be heavy. uPVC material can flex and distort which will affect the working of the door and there is a size limitation as well. Steel can be heavy. Aluminum is the best material for sections. It is relatively stable and does not tend to distort with temperature variations. From the maintenance point too aluminum scores because powder coated or natural anodized aluminum does not need frequent paint or maintenance. Bifold doors are available as top hung or bottom rolling types. If a strong enough beam is present then the top hung type is best because it does not collect leaves and debris and the frame conceals the mechanism from view.
A sliding door can be installed as a front door, deck door, or side door. They simply slide into a slot that was cut into the wall. It does not open into a place that takes up more room as normal doors do so you don’t struggle around the door when trying to get in or out. Sliding doors save space and are ideal for high foot traffic areas. Plus if you have any tables or décor around that area, it won’t obstruct the doorway. You might have thought of getting a door of a different size, but it makes more sense to install a sliding door that does not swing out at all.
Keep your door in peak condition. Like other electronic devices, a garage door that starts to make loud banging, creaking, or squealing noises is a door that is literally crying out for repair – and again, only for a reputable garage door repair service company.
