Do you have unused wall space in your home? Do you want to transform those spaces to make your house look larger? A lot of homeowners nowadays turn these unused wall spaces into doors to provide an additional access point to the outdoors, give the impression of more interior space, and brighten up their home with more natural light. Other homeowners may currently have sliding or stacking doors and are looking to renovate or upgrade. There are a lot of material options that you can choose from such as wood, aluminum and uPVC. Given all these options, why should aluminum be on the top of your list? Here are several reasons why:
- It is light in weight
- It is strong and durable
- It is less prone to corrosion than other metal doors
- It is flexible in terms of design
- It is insulated
- It is recyclable
If you want to use the best material for your home and maximize its benefits to the fullest without breaking the bank, then aluminum doors are the best option for your home.
What are the different types of aluminum doors?
There are three main types of aluminum doors that could be used for your home: sliding, stacker, and bifold. All of these aluminum doors generally have the same benefits but the right one will depend on a few factors, such as space, cost, and design preferences. Read more to find out their differences:
Sliding doors are the perfect all-around solution. They create an opening that brings in natural light and fresh air. Aluminum sliding doors are old-time favorites as they are easy to open give a fairly unhindered view. Installing them is also very easy. Another positive attribute of sliding doors is that they can be designed for any size and shape opening. You can also choose from a variety of colors for your sliding doors.
Stacker doors are made for larger openings and provide more light and space overall. They have a space-efficient design that allows multiple panels to be stacked using tracks. Stacker doors are resistant to harsh weather conditions yet can still give the best views and natural light year-round. They are also made-to-fit and handcrafted.
Bifold doors are great for transforming wall spaces to grand entry doors. These are a good option for homeowners who regularly entertain as they provide a seamless entryway from the outdoor space to the inside by being opened fully.
How much do these types of aluminum doors cost?
The cost of aluminum doors depends on several factors such as size and configuration, installation, quality, hardware costs, quantity, and glass options.
Among the three aluminum door types, sliding doors are the cheapest option since they require the least amount of materials and labor. Usually, the price range of sliding doors installed is between $2500 to $3900
Stacker doors are mid-range aluminum doors and more expensive than sliding doors since they typically use more panels. These can cost between $3200 to $6300 installed.
Bifold doors are the most expensive because of their complex manufacturing. Since they are also the most durable among the three aluminum door options, the high prices are arguably justified. If you are looking to install bifold doors, expect to spend between $5500 to $9000.
