One of the main differences between Vufold and Vibrantdoor's indoor bifold doors is in warranty. While both offer a range of doors at different price points, only Vufold offers a fantastic 15-year guarantee (Vibrantdoor only offers a 10-year guarantee).
Vufold offers such an extended warranty because they are confident in the quality of all their doors. All of Vufold’s bifold doors are pre-machined, pre-tested and ready-for-installation when it arrives on site. You can find out more about Vufold’s RTA design below.
Fitting an interior bifold door is a project that a skilled DIYer can take on, but only Vufold gives the full support needed to make this possible. Vufold’s doors are known as ready-to-assemble door sets.
Vibrantdoors offers some details, but suggests a professional tradesperson handle the installation. If your door installation is not part of a larger renovation project, this could mean high additional costs you haven't budgeted for.
What is a ready-to-assemble door?
Vufold’s RTA doors are pre-machined and ready to assemble on site. Almost everything needed for installation is included, such as:
- Drill bits
The only items that need sourcing are basic tools (no specialist equipment required!):
- Spirit level
- Tape measure
- Philips screwdriver
Ready-to-assemble doors make the installation process as easy as possible. This means that any competent DIYer can install their own doors. Even if you use a professional tradesperson, they will likely be able to install the door set faster than a standard door!
If you want additional flexibility in privacy and shade, blinds are a great choice for your bifold doors. Vufold offers perfect fit blinds designed specifically for their range of bifold doors. As with all Vufold’s products, installation couldn’t be easier - the perfect fit blinds fit on the outside of the glass within the inside face of the door.
Unfortunately, Vibrantdoors does not appear to supply any blinds for their internal bifold doors.
Style and size
Both Vufold and Vibrantdoors offer a wide variety of standard sizes. However, if you are renovating an older home or have a very large space you’d like to divide, these standard sizes may not be suitable.
