Aluminium Door Installation: Professional Tips for a Flawless Finish

23rd April 2024 |

Aluminium Doors

Aluminium doors can be a great way to enhance the aesthetic appeal, energy efficiency and security of your home. However, while installing these doors might appear straightforward, it’s often more complex than it appears.

Aluminium Patio Door

Aluminium door installation is a task that requires precision and expertise to ensure they function correctly and last. Even a minor error during installation can lead to misalignment, gaps or even structural damage which can introduce potential safety risks and severely reduce the door’s lifespan.

For these reasons, it’s advisable to leave this task to a professional. An experienced installer will not only ensure a perfect fit and finish but also guarantee that your aluminium doors function flawlessly for years to come.

In this article, we’ll guide you through everything you need to know, from choosing the right aluminium door for your home to understanding what to expect during the professional installation process.

Why Choose Aluminium Doors?

Aluminium doors have become an extremely popular door choice for homeowners throughout the UK. Crafted from sturdy yet lightweight aluminium, these doors feature slim and durable profiles that allow for a higher glass-to-frame ratio. As a result, this design enhances natural light and visibility while adding a touch of elegance to the exterior of your home with its sleek, modern appearance.

The benefits of choosing aluminium doors extend beyond their aesthetic appeal, including:

  • Durability – Aluminium’s inherent strength provides superior durability against corrosion and the elements, making it a lasting addition to your home without the risk of rusting
  • Energy Efficiency – Aluminium doors from Majestic Designs are fitted with A++ rated, energy-efficient glazing and incorporate thermal break technology, which adds extra insulation within the frames. These features help achieve excellent energy ratings for your home, no matter how large the glass panels are.
  • Low Maintenance – Aluminium doors require minimal upkeep, which means fewer repairs and replacements, ensuring that your doors will continue to look and function like new for years to come

Aluminium Door Options for Your Home

When selecting aluminium doors for your home, one of the key decisions is deciding on the right style. Aluminium doors are available in a variety of styles, each designed to cater to different architectural preferences, personal tastes and functional needs.

Let’s explore the various types of aluminium doors available on the market to help you choose the perfect option for your unique space.

Bifold

Aluminium bifold doors are an excellent choice for homeowners looking to seamlessly connect their indoor and outdoor living spaces. These doors feature a single fixed panel and multiple glazed sections that smoothly slide and fold in a zig-zag pattern along an aluminium track, collapsing neatly when fully open.

This design maximises space and blends your interior with your garden, terrace or patio beautifully, offering up to 90% accessibility to the opening – perfect for summer festivities like barbecues and garden parties.

Patio

Aluminium patio doors are perfect for those looking to fully enjoy their outdoor spaces from the comfort of their home. Featuring large glass panels and minimal frames, these doors offer a clear, uninterrupted view of the outdoors, inviting the beauty of nature inside.

The functionality of patio doors is a standout, with two large glazed panels operating on a sliding mechanism. When opened, one door glides smoothly in front of the other, creating a broad passageway to your outdoor areas without occupying any additional floor space.

Residential

Aluminium residential doors are a great option for homeowners looking to update their entryways with a modern, stylish finish. Whether you’re considering a new front, back or side door, these doors not only look great but also provide enhanced security, insulation and long-lasting durability.

Aluminium residential doors are designed to complement the architectural style of your home’s exterior while meeting practical needs. They combine strong construction with sleek design to create a welcoming yet secure entry point to any home.

Installation Process

  1. Measurement and Frame Preparation
    The first step of the installation process involves precisely measuring the doorway to ensure the aluminium door will fit in the opening perfectly. Accurate frame measurements are vital for the dimensions of the aluminium door to be fitted securely.Additionally, the opening must be clear of any debris and ready for the new frame to be installed.
  2. Hardware Attachment
    Before the door itself is installed, all necessary hardware such as hinges, locks and handles should be attached to the door. This step is vital to guarantee that the door will function smoothly once in place.
  3. Positioning
    The aluminium door is then carefully positioned within the prepared frame. This step requires precision to ensure the door is perfectly aligned and that it will open and close correctly without any issues.
  4. Securing
    Once the door is correctly positioned, it is secured into place. This involves fixing the door to the frame with screws or bolts through the pre-drilled guide holes, ensuring it is stable and secure.
  5. Sealing and Finishing
    The final step involves sealing any gaps between the door and the frame using appropriate sealants. This is essential to prevent air leaks and ensure that the door is weatherproof, which helps improve the energy efficiency and overall performance of the door.The operation of the door is checked again to ensure it moves smoothly along with any necessary final adjustments. Once the installation area is cleaned, the process is complete.
