Bi-fold doors modernise home in Leckhampton

“Thank you! Our new bi-fold and French doors really give our home the contemporary look we were aiming for. Our friends have all commented on the quality of the work that you carried out.”

Mr & Mrs D, Leckhampton

Cheltenham Glass and Glazing recently completed the installation of both bi-fold and French doors in anthracite grey at the Leckhampton home of Mr & Mrs D.

As part of plans to improve their large open-plan kitchen and living space, Mr & Mrs D. were keen to give their home a modern, contemporary finish.

Adam Worth, Director of Cheltenham Glass and Glazing visited Mr & Mrs D. to discuss all options available to them, including whether to use traditional uPVC or more modern aluminium doors.

“In recent years we have seen aluminium frames become increasingly popular for bi-fold and French doors across Gloucestershire,” said Adam.

“Whilst the initial cost is higher for aluminium frames, they are more durable, stronger and widely regarded as more visually pleasing than uPVC frames. All of these factors mean lower maintenance costs after installation than for uPVC. Aluminium frames also have a much longer lifespan than uPVC”.

From a customer choice perspective, aluminium frames are available in more finishes and colourways than uPVC. And because of their superior strength, the frames themselves can be much thinner than for uPVC frames, maximising the amount of glass in each window.

Anthracite grey (RAL 7016) has become one of the most popular shades for window frames and doors. With a unique tone including subtle blues and greens it provides a stunning look which is both modern and timeless.

The team from Cheltenham Glass and Glazing replaced existing white uPVC bi-fold doors and also replaced existing French doors in the next room with new aluminium frames also in anthracite grey.

Our priority is and always has been customer satisfaction, with the majority of our work coming from customer recommendations and word of mouth referrals from our Gloucestershire clients. That is why traditional values of respect, care and value for money are instilled in our team.
