All the moving parts of bi-folding doors are virtually maintenance free, so if you’re considering having yours spray painted, you may be worried that doing so could affect how the doors operate and function.
The good news is bi-fold doors can be spray painted just fine, and so long as the job is performed correctly, the spray paint will not affect how the doors operate and function in any way. They’ll continue to open and close with the smooth glide you’re used to – but only if the job is carried out properly.
By ‘properly’ we mean so long as the hinges, brackets and sliders are masked off and protected to ensure no paint reaches them. A professional spray-painting company like us will mask off the bi-fold doors to ensure we only paint the frame itself, both inside and out, to change the appearance, not the functionality.
If you were to paint over hinges, brackets and sliders, this may affect their functionality, or even void your manufacturer’s warranty. Since we only paint the frame, this isn’t an issue as we see it with our bi-fold painting service.
Another question you probably have with regards to spray painting bi-fold doors is the durability of the finish. Will the paint last? Will the action of the bi-fold doors sliding side to side rub paint off the frame over time?
We can answer this plainly: we provide a 10-year guarantee on all our spray-painting work which means we expect the finish to last at least 10-years. This means you can use your bi-fold doors as normal without fear of damaging the paint. The finish will be as durable as the standard finish on your doors, UPVC or aluminium.
As for cost? £400 sounds about right as a baseline, but some bi-fold doors can cost up to £600 if they’re very large.
We will spray paint your UPVC or aluminium bi-fold doors to a factory finish. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0800 037 0658 to get started.
