At Fremantle Door and Window, we build a variety of custom external doors for Perth area homeowners. Customer external doors are a great way to modernise your home while protecting it more efficiently from heat, cold and insects. We offer some popular options and we know that there is no “one size fits all” door that is right for every home. Here’s how to decide which doors are the best for your home.
Bifold doors are great for transitioning from your house to your backyard. They provide the widest opening of any external door. They can also be made wider than any other door because they are a series of two or more panels that fold in on each other to close the door. They can be made two panels wide or multiple panels can be used to replace an entire wall.
Bifold doors are the best way to make your alfresco living area, patio, deck or backyard like part of your house. They save space because they sit neatly folded at the side when opened. They provide great views and make your home look larger from the inside.
Sliding Doors save even more space but the opening is only half as wide as the window. They are also limited in width. But for those who don’t need the extra wide opening, sliding doors provide many of the same benefits of bifold doors. They provide a great view and let in a lot of light. They are easy to move as long as you keep the track clean. They are another great way to transition from nature to the inside of your home.
The choice between sliding doors and bifold doors is a matter of taste. You really can’t go wrong with either choice.
We can provide you with a solid, custom built timber door or a pivot door for your front entry door. Both are popular options. Both will insulate your home more efficiently than a standard door and both make a design statement to your guests.
