How much do bifold doors cost?
12th January 2020
Bifold doors are undoubtedly one of the UK’s most popular home improvements right now.
And why not?
Most style-conscious homeowners would love to blur the lines between their outdoor and indoor living space to enjoy one stunning seamless entertaining area.
In our experience, demand has definitely been fuelled by the fact bifold door prices have become much more affordable in recent years.
When you consider they’re usually a must-have design feature on almost every episode of Grand Designs (other makeover programmes are available!), it’s clear to see why our bi-folds love affair continues to grow.
Luckily, you don’t have to live somewhere grand to enjoy them - or their benefits!

How much do bifold doors cost to install?
When drawing up your budget, we would advise factoring in at least £650 for installation fees as a general rule of thumb.
This is a guide price based upon a ‘standard’ installation where there are no access issues or complicated structural load concerns.
For bifold doors which measure 4.7m or more, it’s wise to factor in slightly more (somewhere in the region of £900) as they are often more complex to install.
If you obtain a free no-obligation quote from EYG, the exact installation fee is itemised in your price – and includes an initial survey as well as any trims, hinges, handles and door furniture required.
What aluminium bi-fold door configurations are available?
Basically, you can customise exterior bi-fold doors to suit your home and style.
Anything from 3 to 8 panes is possible – opening either inwards or outwards.
Static panels can also be included within that configuration (on the left or right).
This flexibility ensures the main opening is positioned exactly where you want it.
Do bi-fold doors need Planning Permission?
In most cases, the installation of exterior bifold doors can be done WITHOUT planning permission.
The reason for this is because bi-fold doors are NOT considered to be a major alteration to your home.
Obviously, different rules will apply if you live in a conservation area or listed building.
