What affects the lead time on bifolding doors?
How quickly you get your new bifolding doors depends on whether they are being fitted into a new or existent opening.
- If you are replacing an existing set of sliding doors with a bifold and no extra building work is required, this helps ensure a faster installation.
- You are fitting bifolding doors to a new structural opening. The opening will need to be ready to receive the bifolds so we can take accurate survey and manufacturing sizes. In some instances we can work to agreed sizes with your builder, but the ready to measure opening is always the best option.
- You may be replacing a window with a bifold by knocking out the brickwork to accommodate the new doors. This is broadly the same as having to fit doors into a new opening.
How do I work out the lead time for my bifolding doors?
Your lead time on bifolding doors is calculated from being able to carry out your survey. This is the best way of ensuring you are aware of when you can expect your new bifolding doors and enables us to schedule your installation and order all materials and glass.
Your choice of colour will also affect the lead time for your bifolding doors. If you choose one of our standard colours such as white, black, woodgrain or a selection of grey colours with our Origin doors, they will arrive quicker than choosing a special colour.
Every bifolding door is bespoke We do not have standard size doors in stock and we believe in giving you the choice to customise your doors exactly as you want them. Should you have extras such as Origin Blinds or Integral glass blinds, these may also affect the lead time.
