When you are looking for a local manufacturer and supplier of anything, but especially aluminium bifold doors, we suggest that you look for 3 different areas;
Speaking to the company who are going to manufacture and install your windows is imperative. You need to talk through all the options that you have available to you. However, more importantly, you need to know about the quality of the product.
Make a list of questions that you want to ask. You should be asking about:

- colours and finishes
- thermal efficiency

Visit a showroom if your chosen supplier has one, here you can look at the finish of the product. You will be able to see how easy the door or window is to use.
Guarantees from a trustworthy aluminium door specialist
Newly manufactured aluminium doors should come with at least a 10 year guarantee. However you need to check with your chosen supplier exactly what is included.

It is always important to check the guarantee that you are given for anything. Read the small print and familiarise yourself with and exclusions.
The best way to see whether if you have picked a trustworthy aluminium door specialist is to check the testimonials from other customers. Reviews can usually be found on the company’s own website. Although you can find them on independent review sites, or social media.
