What are the benefits of different door types?

With 30 years’ experience, Clearview 2000 Ltd’s installers are aware that the doors in use in modern builds are varied, as are the benefits of each type. So we have compiled a list showing the types and benefits of three popular door installations.

Benefits of Composite Doors

Made of specially chosen materials such as glass-reinforced plastic, solid wood, and uPVC, they are one of the strongest door types. The selected materials are fused together under high pressure, making them incredibly durable.

Benefits: Composite doors add security to your home, meaning you can have peace of mind when locking up for the night.  They are also designed to be weatherproof, and offer a wide amount of choice when it comes to finishes, colours and textures.

Benefits of Bi-Fold Doors

When making the most of space and light, bi-fold doors are a fantastic option.  Often with large glazed glass panels, they can be pulled open to reveal the full room, or divide the space depending on need. There are also bi-fold doors that can be used externally to open up to the patio on hot summer nights.

Benefits: Bi-fold doors open up the space you have and let a lot of light in.  If installed externally you are able to have the view of your garden, and they can merge the two spaces.  

Benefits of French Doors

Similar to bi-fold, french doors are primarily glass panels, which are sometimes separated by muntin (strips of wood or metal).  French doors are usually double doors opening outwards and can be used internally and externally.

Benefits: French doors let in a lot of natural light and can be a great investment for your home. They also hold the heat in and add an appealing aesthetic to your space.
