Get Aluminium Bi-Folding Doors Right First Time on New Builds


Aluminium Bi-Folding Doors

Homeowners moving into a new build property want to make the most of their dream home.  However, according to a recent report, it seems the first thing most homeowners do is to get on the phone to the builder to complain.

According to a new survey carried out by the Home Builders Federation and National House Building Council, a staggering 93 percent of people have reported problems since they moved in.

This is one of the findings of the home building industry’s ninth Customer satisfaction survey, launched in May to coincide with New Homes Week.

This isn’t just a handful of people moaning.  The independently verified survey polled 32,137 new home buyers.  93 percent of that is just shy of 30,000 people.

It is likely that many of these ‘problems’ are only minor teething troubles and not the builder’s fault.   After all, when working off-plan, there’s often a difference between the architect’s intentions and the finished product. 

Nonetheless, the survey highlights how easily a negative perception can be attached to housebuilders – and that’s something we want to help them avoid.

Helping Builders to Achieve Certainty When Installing Aluminium Bi-folding Doors

That’s why, when it comes to fitting aluminium bi-folding doors, we’re committed to helping builders get it right first time, every time.  We’ll make the bi-folding door and deliver it direct to site within 1 week unglazed or 2 weeks glazed.

Why are our lead times so important?

A bi-folding door is typically one of the last items to go into any new build, extension or refurbishment, which means any delay will impact on the builder being able to finish the job.

On the other hand, it’s worth waiting for the exact dimensions of the hole – because ordering early with off-plan measurements can lead to problems that bother homeowners.

An incorrect bi-folding door might stick whenever somebody tries to open it, instead of the smooth operation they expect.  Or it might not fit perfectly – even a tiny gap will need to be sealed with unsightly filler, spoiling the impact the door was supposed to create.

We understand these issues.  That’s why we created a fast turnaround system that lets builders wait, safe in the confidence that they’ll get a high-quality, precisely manufacturing aluminium bi-folding door exactly when we promise.
