French Doors Cardiff.
Stunning Patio Doors to Suit Any Home.
French doors are a practical and affordable way to connect your home with your garden, patio or conservatory. They offer a versatile look that works with modern or traditional homes. It's a small thing but being able to step out of your french doors into the garden seems to make a home feel so much more open and means you don't have to go to the front or back door to get outside.
When you want to reinvigorate your home with more light, French doors are a perfect choice. They'll make a breath of fresh air feel like it's right in your own home. Available in uPVC or aluminium, with a wide range of colours and decorative glass effects to choose from, you are sure to find patio doors that will enhance your home for many years to come. Use our door designer below to experiment with different styles. Of course, you are welcome to book a visit to your home or come and visit us in our lovely showroom where you can see full-size doors in action.
French doors are ideal for a wide range of uses, particularly when you want patio doors with a traditional feel. Beautifully suited to open up into conservatories or to make a unique design statement within your home.

Bifold Doors or French Doors?
French and bi-fold doors are the two most common styles of UPVC patio doors, but which style is for you? Take a look at the pros and cons of each, which will hopefully help with the decision making!
All patio doors have the potential to add value to your home or make it more appealing to would-be buyers. Full-length glass doors are an improvement over windows or the old style sliding doors, especially if they open up the view or let more light in. It isn't so much that one is better than the other. It's more that they are each better suited to particular spaces. Your choice may also depend on price and convenience.
Whichever style of patio door you choose, our superb quality double glazing systems plus first-class fitting ensures that your doors will be thermally efficient, secure, durable and low maintenance.
French doors can be a more practical choice for doors if the existing structure is already set up for it. Changing to a wider type of opening such as bi-folding doors can mean a change to the structure requiring additional support in the form of a wider lintel. Bi-fold doors or sliding doors could be more practical if you have limited space for the swing of the doors. We are happy to advise on whether patio doors, sliding doors or bi-folds would be a better choice for you. You can read more about the difference between bi-fold and French doors in our news section.
French Doors to Replace Sliding Doors.
uPVC French doors are often used to replace old sliding doors which means using doors that are narrower than the original opening. This is usually achieved by using fixed side panels which can be full length or half-height with the addition of a small wall and window sill. Using full-length glass panels means that you can minimise the structural work and keep the same open view. If the opening is wide, maybe bifold doors would be better for you. Bifold doors have the added benefit of folding back against the wall leaving a clear open space for you to enjoy maximum airflow on warm days.
French Doors to Replace Windows.
If you have decided to replace your windows with something newer and more stylish that lets in more light, french doors are usually the obvious choice as they can often be installed in the same width without too much building work. It's only necessary to take out the bricks below the window which are not supporting the structure. You will need to bear in mind that your floor may be affected because the depth of doors is less than a brick wall but we can usually deal with that by filling the space with a uPVC or wood infill. There are several solutions to this. We'll tell you how we make your finished french doors look great when we measure up for you.

Aluminium Bi-fold Doors.
We’ve made our new aluminium bi-fold doors range easy to install thanks to a slim-stepped outer frame that contains all the door hardware inside the frame. There’s no need to cut plaster or make alterations in your home to make sure the doors fit. The benefit to you is minimal disruption and mess in your home when they’re installed. Aluminium is a conductor of heat and cold which is why old aluminium doors were not considered thermally efficient. Nowadays, good quality aluminium doors have a thermal break which means that they not only look great but will keep your home warm. More about Aluminium bifold doors.
