It is now a year since I fitted my Vufold 54 Elite bifolding door. There is no need to mince words, the product is excellent quality, and is a joy to use. The after sales service from yourselves has been equally excellent. I have needed a couple of minor items replacing since I bought the product, and both have been dispatched with no fuss, promptly, and most importantly of all, politely and professionally.SM
I commend both your personnel and your product.
Many many thanks

Totally changed the way the room looks
These were delivered well within the timeframes quoted. Stored for a couple of weeks in garage flat as advised with no issues. Installed in less than a day with a few minor adjustments over the next week, very please and have already recommended to several people. Pleased that we bought the pre-finished ones as good to go with no fuss. They have totally changed the way the room looks like from inside and out.paul

Great quality, fit together well and open very easily. Only downside was a problem with their courier losing our order once it had left Vufold but overall fantastic.Catussehaut

Excellent diy product
16 foot of diy madness, not! The staff once ordered the door were brilliant. Door arrived on the day we agreed. Checked all was present with the order even the driver helped. My only complaint but my fault is I never ordered pre-finished.M Kent
So out with the brushes, this took me on my own 24 hrs of 3, 8 hours days to achieve the 3 coats. The aperture was made to the size as per the manual only to find the frame was 10mm larger than the manual. Easy fix was to open the aperture a little. You are told not to cut the frame, the amount of workmanship that has gone into building the frame it would be a shame to mark it in anyway. I had three people help me position and hold the frame. The drill bits to go through the metal work could do with being more substantial or more supplied as I used 4 bits.
Once the frame was installed the doors were almost easy enough for my 15 year old lad to install. Setting the positioning of the doors was easy. Once the seals were installed, made the doors wind proof.
I have spoken with a lot of window/door companies and got many a tale of Bi-Folding doors and if I had listened to them I would still have a big gaping hole in my self-build extension. I am now looking to fit an alarm system to the doors but cannot find one that is small or can be hidden so as not to spoil the look of the doors. All in all an excellent diy product, I have installed a handful of door frames and window frames, so not a professional by any means.
Excellent item, easy to fit
Excellent item, easy to fit (my husband fitted our 16ft external doors in 4 hours) and a real focal point. Easy to open, excellent door furniture to stop the doors damaging in the wind with a professional finish.S Roche
I would highly recommend these doors to anyone who wants to open up their home and let the light in!
Having seen this product on show at Grand Designs, it delivered every thing it promised.

I would recommend to anyone and already thinking of replacing a window with another external Bi-fold from Vufold.
Would recommend these doors to anyone.
Very impressed. After frame was installed with the specs detailed in the installed guide the doors were hung with ease.P Smith
Only minor issue is that two of the locking bolts are quite stiff and the keys supplied are quite flexible. Am going to try some WD40 and if this does not fix will be contacting VUFOLD for advice - customer service thus far for minor queries has been extremely good.
Would recommend these doors to anyone who is looking for quality bifolds at very reasonable prices.
