Adding value to your home with Korniche bi-folding doors

Before you consider the huge expense of moving house, there are many cost-effective renovations you can examine before making such a massive financial commitment – consider the phrase “improve, don’t move”.

Every year, over four million households choose to invest in their current property, rather than making the costly decision to move, in a search for their ‘dream home’. Why not join them – stay put and consider simple renovations to make your dream home the one you’re already living in!

You can also increase the value of your home by:
– Installing Korniche Roof Lanterns.
– Installing conservatory roofs.

There are countless benefits of choosing to renovate your property:

You can create more living space.
By choosing quality renovation materials and products, you’ll require less home maintenance in the future.
You can update and personalise your home.
Any home renovations will increase the value of your home, should you decide to move in the future after all.
Renovations are cheaper than buying a new property, especially if you utilise local businesses which supply and install Made for Trade Korniche bi-folding doors.
Manufacturers and installers are growing increasingly more aware of the impact our homes can have on the environment, and are choosing to supply products to make your home more eco-friendly.

We recommend adding value to your home by opting for bi-folding doors, installed by a Made for Trade-recommended builder.
Bi-folding doors can instantly transform your home, by creating a seamless transitional space between your living area and garden. They will brighten up dull spaces, and are perfect for living rooms and dining areas – although there are a multitude of options available, such as leading out onto a terrace or a first-floor balcony.

Don’t have a garden? Don’t worry. Bi-folding doors can be installed leading out to a patio, maximising a small space and making the most of the outdoors even if you don’t have green fingers!

By making the most of the transitional space between the indoors and outdoors, you can enjoy your home in new ways: serving meals and entertaining guests outdoors in the summer months, and cosying up with family or friends and enjoying the view in the winter.
Why should you choose an installer who supplies Made for Trade’s bi-folding doors?

Style and Colour Options

Our bi-folding doors are polyester powder-coated to maintain a fresh appearance through a lifetime of use. They are available in any RAL and British Standard colour, and can be manufactured with dual colouring – allowing you to choose different shades for the interior and exterior of the door to blend seamlessly with your home. Made for Trade supplies bi-fold doors in a variety of natural and innovative colours, including rich contemporary shades suitable for modern new builds, and wood finishes suitable for traditional period homes.

Bi-folding doors are manufactured to be highly resistant to corrosion, and are coated with a durable scratch-resistant finish, ensuring minimum upkeep and maintaining a fresh appearance which will immediately smarten up dated spaces.

Efficiency & Function

Made for Trade bi-fold doors are manufactured with Polyamide thermal barrier technology. This advanced profile technology creates a thermal transmittance barrier between cold and warm air, keeping your home cool in the summer, and warm in the winter months. This thermal barrier will reduce the carbon footprint of your home, and subsequently your energy bills will drop.

Our bi-folding doors are manufactured with a strong but slim aluminium profile – creating 132mm sightlines with expansive glass space. We can offer square or rounded profile options to fit your requirements exactly.


Our bi-folding doors are checked with enhanced security ratings which are compliant with Building Regulations. Our bi-folding doors are vastly more secure than traditional patio sliding doors, as they can be fitted with twinpoint locks, dropbolts, security screens or shootbolts. We install retained rollers and guides and anti-lift blocks to stop doors from being forced from their frame in the event of an attempted breakin.

So, before you consider moving home to escape a dated, dull living space, consider some more cost-effective solutions to transform your space. By replacing tired sliding patio doors with bi-folding doors, you’ll create a transitional space between your home and garden to enjoy year-round.
