Why Choose Bi-Fold Window Replacement

Why Choose Bi-Fold Window Replacement

Energy Efficiency

Bi-fold windows are designed to fold open in the center, allowing maximum fresh air and sunlight when fully extended. When closed, they deliver top insulation. Replacing old bi-fold windows with new, double pane models featuring low-E coatings and inert gas fills can significantly reduce outdoor noise and make your home more energy efficient.


From strong winds to extreme weather, Kansas elements can damage outdated bi-fold windows. New vinyl or composite window frames combined with tempered, impact-resistant glass stand up better while requiring little maintenance. Advanced seals also prevent air and moisture infiltration.


Our experienced team makes recommendations based on your home’s architecture and needs, providing customized bi-fold window solutions. We offer numerous frame types, hardware, screens, decorative window film, glass tints, window opening control devices, and more to match your vision.

Added Value

Replacing worn or inefficient bi-fold windows improves your home’s functionality and comfort. It also increases resale value. Energy efficient updates like bi-fold window replacement can yield 70-80% ROI at selling.

Bi-Fold Window Frame Materials We Use

Our I-Certified installers work with these high quality framing materials for exceptional thermal performance, strength, and longevity:


Vinyl window frames offer superior insulation, durability and affordability. This lightweight material resists warping, rotting and swelling, outperforming wood. Maintenance is also easy – just soap and water keep the textured finish looking fresh.


For incredible stability and efficiency, composite bi-fold window frames blend vinyl, plastic, and fiberglass while resisting weathering. Composite withstands high heat and humidity with reinforced seals between glass and frame preventing failure.


While prevalent on commercial structures, aluminum framing remains an excellent residential choice too. Rigid aluminum provides narrow sightlines to allow more natural light inside. It also readily supports specialty glass types and custom designs.


If maintaining architectural tradition is important, wood frame bi-fold windows deliver. Modern composites nearly match natural wood grain patterns and staining ability while resisting damage. Yet no other material surpasses real wood’s timeless elegance.

Additional Bi-Fold Window Services

Beyond frame materials and energy efficient glass options, we offer these supplementary services for enhanced comfort, security and style:

Hardware Upgrades

Aside from being essential to opening/closing, hardware plays a role in insulating too. Multi-point locks, hinged panels, smooth rollers, and handles seal out noise/elements better. Choose finish colors like Oil Rubbed Bronze, Satin Nickel, or Antique Brass to match your home decor.

Mulling Services

For full wall exposure and seamless sightlines, we expertly combine multiple bi-fold units. Mulling services unite separate windows together securely using structural adhesives made for glass assemblies. The result is a stunning wall of continuous windows absent visible frames in between.

Specialty Glass or Film

Customize sunlight filtration, privacy, glare reduction and security with specialty glass or applied films. Options range from frosted/tinted glass to triple pane designs and impact-resistant laminates. Decorative stained glass panel inserts or etched glass patterns also lend unique touches.

Finishing Touches

We handle every aspect from custom sized screens and grids to exterior casing and interior trims for flawless built-ins. This includes installing supportive headers, ensuring proper load transfers occur above large bi-fold window assemblies so structural integrity remains intact.

Frequently Asked Questions: Bi-Fold Window Replacements

The full replacement process typically takes one to two days depending on the number of bi-fold windows. Preparation and demolition are Day 1, followed by installing the new windows on Day 2 once openings are prepped.

In most cases where air/moisture infiltration, sticking, condensation issues, or rotting frames exist, full replacement is best long-term since problems will inevitably resurface if only repaired. New window installation also boosts home value.

Brand differentiation mainly comes down to development of proprietary frame materials and production methods. Brands excel in unique areas like customization potential, hardware systems, glass technologies, strength testing, warranty offerings, eco-friendly commitments or overall value depending on homeowners’ priorities.

Pros include excellent ventilation potential, space saving storage along walls, and adjustable partial to full views. Limitations affect energy efficiency somewhat when fully open. Also consider potential for dirt buildup along opening tracks and higher leakage risk if seals fail.

Vinyl or composite frames paired with double/triple glazing provides the best insulation and convenience long-term. More glass layers and inert gas fills between them regulate indoor temps better. Specialty glass types also cater to specific climates, conditions and locations in homes for greater comfort.

Interior wood trims beautifully finish openings, hiding rough edges and gaps for clean sightlines. Exterior casing protects walls from water infiltration while covering installation points for a refined look. Either way, new trims complete the aesthetic. We handle full custom trimming services.

We recommend integrating window opening control devices on bi-folds over ground level. These mechanical systems set limited opening allowances so windows remain safely and securely locked for liability and fall prevention reasons especially in kids rooms.

Building permits generally aren’t required for replacement projects in existing openings following similar sizing. However, cities implement building codes related to emergency egress requirements, safety glazing standards, minimum efficiency ratings and structural alterations needing approval. We ensure full code compliance.

Modern vinyl and composite framing require little upkeep – just occasional washing with soap and water. Keeping rollers/tracks clean, checking seals, and testing operation annually maintains performance. Protecting exterior finishes from harsh weathering preserves appearances longer term with touch up paint when needed.

Our Lifetime Limited Warranty covers window materials and construction defects from faulty manufacturing. Separate 10 year glass breakage coverage is also included. Finish and hardware warranties match individual manufacturer durations for those components – typically ranging 5-20 years. We provide full warranty details upfront.
