Timber is undoubtedly a unique and beautiful material that is appropriate for many purposes in home construction. Timber fixtures are a popular choice for those looking to give their homes a little extra charm and functionality, but many people also avoid wooden styles for a few valid reasons. In general, wooden bifolding doors are very durable and provide a high level of insulation, although they require a high level of maintenance if you want to maintain that fresh look of new bifolding doors.
Timber bifolding doors give a fresh and modern twist on a material that has been used as a major and integral construction element in domestic homes for centuries. Timber models thus work very well in traditional style homes as they give just a touch of old world charm along with all the benefits of flexible and open bifolding doors.
Wood can easily be painted, sanded down or stained to produce any effect you are after. This is a great advantage to those with changing tastes and the urge to freshen things up every year or so. Timber bifolding doors also need, however, to be touched up and maintained much more frequently than the aluminium equivalents.
Timber models may be a more environmentally friendly option than other styles, especially if you choose recycled wood or timber sourced from sustainable and low impact forests or plantations. It is important, however to source wooden products locally and to treat them with VOC free paints and finishes for the greenest home solution.
