Bi-Folding Door Repair Guildford GU23

Below you find some information on a recent Timber Bi-Folding Door Repair Guildford GU23.

DWLG Bifold door engineers attended a house in the Guildford GU23 area today to carry out a Timber Bi-Folding Door repair to a 4 leaf Bi-Fold Door set. The customer informed us that the doors had dropped and this had caused a rather large gap at the top of the doors making them rather drafty. The Bi-fold door also had some deteriorating rubber seals. The customer sent us some very good pictures that we used to help asses the bi-folding doors before arrival to the property.

Upon arrival to the property and closer inspection DWLG, expert bi-folding door engineers decided on the best course of action to get the bi-folding doors fully functioning and draft-free. The bi-folding doors would require re-aligning/toe and heeling, a door to be repositioned and some sealing. Additional fixings would need to be added too. The bottom roller hinge on the main door was showing signs of wear. It was decided that while DWLG were re-alining the doors they would also switch positions of the roller. They removed a roller from a the door which showed less wear. A better condition less used roller was then placed on the bi-folding door that has the most use. This would maximise the usage of the bottom rollers making them last longer. The bottom rollers would not need to be replaced as quick. This would make the doors work to there best again.

What is Toeing and Heeling?

The Glazing inside the bi-folding doors is very large, and therefore also very heavy. Over time the weight of the glazing can cause the sash to drop within the door frame. This can make the doors misaligned and stop the doors from functioning correctly. Misaligned bi-folding doors can cause a number of issues. The might be hard to run across the track. The lock and the lock keep may no longer line and this can damage both lock and the door handle.

Toeing and Heeling is a process where packers are inserted at opposite diagonal corners of the glazed unit. This braces the glass against the internal frame, holding the glazing in place. This tops the double glazed glass unit from moving.

Our expert engineers at DWLG carried out the following service:

  • A Bi-Folding Door Search and discovery.
  • Full service and maintenance on all 4 Doors.
