Two polls have closed recently on DGB, the Composite Door Cost poll and the Fabricator lead time poll. Click on the links to find out how they went and the results they produced.
However one area I have been hot on this year is bi-fold doors and fabricators’ apparent race to the bottom on the pricing front. Month after month I have seen promotional material advertising both PVC and aluminium bi-folding doors at lower and lower prices. I cannot help thinking that this particular part of the industry is now out of control and probably now unable to stabilise itself and stop the rife undercutting.
Still, this seems like as good a time as ever to ask what you, the DGB readers think a good quality PVC and aluminium bi-folding door should cost.
Now, before you go ahead and click to place your votes, please read this…
For this poll, I want you to base your answers on a bi-folding door that is four section, outward sliding, 3.6m wide by 2.1m high. Why 3.6m wide? Because a lot of PVCu bi-fold door sashes have a maximum width of 900mm. In aluminium you can go to 1000mm wide, but 900mm seems like a good average.
The poll is also to find out what both bi-folds should cost the home owner, and not what it costs from fabricators to installers.
Right, now you’ve read that, go ahead and vote:
