Bi-folding doors – Let the outside in

Bi-folding doors, sometimes referred to as bi fold doors, have become very popular over the past decade and have become a must-have external door in the design of new build homes, renovations, extensions or conservatories/orangeries. One of the reasons for this rise in desirability relate to space,  light, versatility and an opportunity to let the outside “in” to the home.

Adding bi-folding doors allow you to create a clear opening that allows you will transform your living area, making the Bi-folds a great alternative to the traditional Patio doors, French doors or Sliding Doors, which offer a smaller more restrictive opening. Letting through more light, whilst providing a more secure entrance, and making your space versatile, makes it easy to see how bi-folding doors can improve your home.

Peak Builders (NW) Ltd, Romiley

“Over the years I’ve used many different window companies, but since I was recommended to Droylsden Glass they’ve become my first choice.” Mr Jeff Niland, director

As a well-established building company Peak Builders is involved in a wide range of development projects for a broad spread of industrial, commercial, social and domestic clients. For the past few years, however, whenever the contract calls for new or replacement windows or doors, the first company they get in touch with is Droylsden Glass.

“Droylsden Glass are totally dependable,” says Jeff Niland. “They know what they’re talking about, produce fantastic products and they provide a quality service at a good value for money price. I’ve built up a great one-to-one relationship with them.”

Currently Peak Builders is hoping to secure the contract for a sizable domestic basement conversion and ground floor extension. If they get it then the bi-fold doors and the two big rooflight installations will certainly be another job for Droylsden Glass.

Bardsley Homes

“Droylsden Glass work well with our office, site staff and the construction teams, but best of all they never cause me any hassle.” – Graeme Spencer, Commercial Director

Bardsley Homes has been consolidating its reputation for quality, design and value throughout the North West for over forty years. Over the past few years this award winning company has worked closely with Droylsden Glass as a preferred partner to design, manufacture and install high quality and stylishly elegant windows and doors on two of the company’s prestigious developments: a luxurious canal-side housing complex at Worsley and the exclusive homes built on the fringes of Dukinfield Golf Club.

Following the initial success of these two developments Bardsley has now completed Phase 2 and once again Droylsden Glass were the main contractors for all the windows and doors.

At ‘The Boatyard’ in Worsley, Droylsden Glass collaborated on the design and then manufactured and installed all the bespoke black on white PVCu energy saving frames and the latest environmentally efficient glazing, some of which incorporated distinctive Georgian glazing bars into the design. They also installed matching double doors at the rear of the properties, plus attractive colour co-ordinated composite front doors. All these products were manufactured and installed to the latest ‘Secure by Design’ standards.

At Dukinfield Golf Club Droylsden Glass again contributed to the concept of the windows, which were manufactured with distinctive grey on white frames and were designed with a dummy sash profile to enhance the sightline of the properties. Rear double doors and stylish composite front residential doors were also installed to continue the visual appeal of the properties. As at ‘The Boatyard’ everything was manufactured and installed to the most stringent ‘Secure by Design’ standards.

What particularly impresses Bardsley Homes about Droylsden Glass is the level of interest and responsiveness demonstrated by the company. “Nothing seems to be too much trouble,” commented Graeme Spencer. “The level of communication, commitment and consistency is excellent, and of course the quality and visual appeal of the products are an integral part of our sales success.”

Gorse Hall Primary School, Stalybridge

“Droylsden Glass replaced 31 windows and a door in only five days. What a smashing job, we’re really pleased” Janet Sculthorp, Bursar

Gorse Hall Primary School had two major maintenance contracts to be completed this year. One was to replace 18 leaking roof lights and the other was to replace and upgrade a large number of windows and a door. As usual though, all the work needed to be completed during the school’s holiday periods while the children were not on site.

In keeping with the guidelines the school obtained three quotations for each project and although Droysden Glass was not the cheapest, everyone felt that they promised the best value for money. What’s more, because the school had used the company on a previous occasion, they were very confident that the work would be completed to the required quality and within the critical time frames.

The first project was to install the 18 pyramid roof lights and although it was a major task, everything was completed as planned within the summer shut down.

Phase two though involved a much tighter schedule. All 31 existing windows had to be removed and the new thermally efficient frames and glazing had to be fitted, plus the door, all within the October half term one-week break.

Thanks to careful planning and their experienced installation team, Droylsden Glass moved onto the site on the first day of the break and by Friday afternoon had installed all 31 windows to a number of classrooms, including the Special Educational Needs room and the Rainbow Room, plus the Deputy Head’s office. For good measure the replacement door was also fitted.

Everyone at Gorse Hall Primary School was delighted when the children returned for their first day back. All the new windows were in place, the classrooms were brighter and warmer, and of course the school can look forward to a far more energy efficient future.

Everything was left clean and tidy, it was absolutely great,” complimented a delighted Janet Sculthorp.

Mr & Mrs Claxton, Sale, Cheshire.

“The rebuild was a huge undertaking, but all the windows were made and installed within six weeks.”

Mrs Kathy Claxton

When Mr & Mrs Claxton bought their house, they didn’t simply move into it … they virtually knocked it down and re-built it.  An impressive project that extended over ten months or more.  Every window in the refurbished building needed to be replaced, and the main contractors instructed Droylsden Glass to undertake this element of the project.  Black on white PVCu framed windows were specified for the front and side elevations, and in addition to installing the latest energy efficient frames and glazing units, Droylsden Glass also produced a number of bespoke decorative glass windows that were exclusively designed to incorporate a combination of beveled glass and lead features.

In addition to the whole-house refurbishment, a modern rear extension was constructed into which Droylsden Glass installed a number of aluminium windows together with two bi-folding doors.  “Everything went so smoothly”, commented Mrs Claxton who was delighted with her new windows and doors, as well as with the service provided by Droylsden Glass.

Mr & Mrs Dixon, Todmorden.

“Almost everyone who sees our lovely new conservatory for the first time just says – wow! It’s like a ballroom.” Mrs Dixon When Mr  & Mrs Dixon mentioned to their son that they were thinking of having a new conservatory built onto the side of their house, he immediately recommended that they should contact Droylsden Glass.  They did as he recommended and are delighted with the finished outcome. The installation progressed smoothly and the enormous 17.5m x 5m conservatory, with aluminium double glazed windows, bi-folding doors and an elegant energy-efficient roofing system was completed as planned. Now Mr & Mrs Dixon are absolutely delighted with their impressively spacious new conservatory, which affords an additional living area that is not only luxurious and comfortable, but it also brings the outdoors … indoors.  No wonder their visitors just exclaim – “WOW!”
