Crystal Clear Bifold Doors

Why Bi-fold Doors are Awesome for your Family Home

(and why you should have them fitted in 2018!)Crystal Clear Bifold Doors

This is the time of the year, when Christmas is approaching and with all the family having chosen to gather and celebrate festivities at your home on the day, it feels like it’s going to a little too tight for space again this year. You could take them all to a local pub or restaurant to celebrate but could be rather expensive (certainly if you’re the one paying). You could even make plans to move to a bigger house in 2018 – rumoured to be even more expensive than eating out on Christmas Day! So why not consider upgrading your home in 2018 with bi-fold doors instead?

Unfortunately this time the condensation sits between the two glazes of glass and this typically occurs when the seals on your windows are damaged or broken.
