How Buying Bi-Folding Doors Can Add Value To Your Home

Posted on 24/07/2017 a 02:07pm

Brits are increasingly favouring improving their existing homes in preference of moving onto pastures new.

Some householders choose to improve because they’re unable to afford that next step up the property ladder, whilst others opt for home enhancements as they simply don’t want the hassle involved with relocating.

Whatever the reasoning for “improving not moving”, it is important to note that most forms of home improvement will add value to a property, and that includes the installation of bi-folding doors.

Did you know?

Some experts estimate that bi-folding doors can add around 5-10% to the resale valuation of a property.

There are a number of reasons why they’re so highly regarded by valuers:

  • Unlike French and patio doors which have rigid widths, bi-folding doors can span several metres enabling a very vast opening to be created

 

  • They enhance the aesthetics of any home, particularly when crafted from aluminium, and give it that all-important “wow” factor

 

  • They open up a property into the garden and create a sensational inside-outside atmosphere

 

  • The exceptionally low U-values offered help to keep the inside of a house thermally efficient

 

  • They will give your home added protection from intruders due to the rigidness of the frames and resilience of the secure locking mechanism

So, whilst moving home may be the last thing on your mind at the moment, it pays to think ahead and invest in improvements that will put you on the front foot in the future when selling - the value gained from bi-folding doors will far outweigh the outlay.
