How much do your doors cost?

There are several factors to pricing your order, including the manufacturer, how many doors you want, the type of door, the manufacturer you select, colours and configurations. We offer honest, competitive pricing throughout. The easiest way to find out more about costings is to fill out our simple quote form.  One of our team will then be able to provide you with a free, no obligation quotation to give you a better idea.

Do you supply & install matching windows?

While we’re a specialist in bifolding and sliding doors, Hamilton is an established name in the Surrey area supplying both high quality aluminium windows and doors. Therefore, if you would like to complete the look of your home with matching aluminium windows, we can easily add this to your order. Our installation teams have worked with us for years, so can install these at the same time as your doors.

Do you have samples I can see?

We can visit your home and take you through your options, but to see some of our samples, pop in and see us at our showroom to see our door collections in person. Our friendly, experienced team are happy to help.

What colour options are available?

With a wide range of RAL colours to choose from, you’ll be able to find the shade that complements your rooms. There are also various finishes and textures you may be able to select, depending on the manufacturer. Dual colours are also an option to allow a different colour on the inside and outside of the doors.

What is the current lead time?

Lead times depend on the request. Simpler designs will be faster to supply and install, but lead times can vary with different manufacturers. Origin, for example, has a 48-hour express service, so this is a great option if you need products delivered fast. As soon as we’ve completed the site survey and finalised your options, we’ll order your doors with your chosen manufacturer. They’ll provide us with an estimated delivery date which will allow us to schedule your installation with you at a convenient time. Turnaround is usually a few days after we received your bifolds or sliding doors.

How energy efficient are the doors?

All of our doors are energy efficient with excellent u-values. They’re all thermally efficient and weathertight to keep your home warm all year round.

What’s the maximum width of a bifold or sliding door?

This will depend on the manufacturer, but as a rule of thumb, bifolding door panels can be made up to at least 1m wide, more in some cases. Our largest range of sliding doors (Schuco) can be made up to 3m high and 3m wide. All of our doors are made to measure, fitting your spaces perfectly. Check out our individual product pages for more information.

What’s the maximum height of a bifold or sliding door?

This will depend on the manufacturer, but as a rule of thumb, sliding and bifolding door panels can be made up to at least 2.5m tall, more in some cases (up to 3m). All of our doors are made to measure. Check out our individual product pages for more information.

Should I choose sliding doors or bifolds for my home?

This depends on your individual needs. Bifolds are a great space saver with the ability to stack and fold door panels out of the way, creating maximum access to a room. Sliding doors are famous for creating uninterrupted, panoramic views to your outdoor spaces. Both are a contemporary alternative to traditional doors, especially if you’re building a new home, updating your current doors or installing an extension or conservatory.

What doors do you offer?

Our range of high quality, aluminium bifolds come from three reputable manufacturers. We supply and install Origin bifolds {add in link to Bifolding Door Origin page}, Smarts Visofold 1000 {add in link to Bifolding Door Smart Systems page}and Schuco’s ASS70FD collection {add in link to Bifolding Door Schuco page}.

We have a range of sliding doors from Smart Systems (Visoglide Plus and Lift & Slide), as well as a premium collection by Schuco (ASS70HI Sliding and Lift & Slide).

What areas do you cover?

Although based in Surrey, we supply and install our doors across London and Kent too. Our main customer base are homeowners, but we also work with businesses on a full supply and install basis.

Do you only offer installation services?

No. Here at Hamilton Bifolds, we offer full supply and installation of either bifolding or sliding doors, meaning we’ll source and order your custom doors for you from one of three manufacturers – Origin, Schuco or Smart Systems. We’re specialists in our field, so offer efficient services at competitive prices.
