Which are more expensive, Crittall metal framed glass doors or bi-fold doors?

Just wondered whether anyone had compared prices? I want them for conventional kitchen doors opening onto back garden.

crittall metal windows are doors were used in houses 1950's and older - are you trying to put in doors that match windows that are already there? Bi-fold doors are modern - but can be very expensive depending on where they come from. I would be putting in whatever works with the rest of the house and/or age of the house.

But you can buy new double glazed versions of Crittall glass which look very good

Have just had a quote for our 2 French doors - from a crittall company - over£20k. Saw them in livingetc and now trying to see what alternatives there are. Our windows/doors are big due to high ceilings so we are going to have a big spend there whatever we choose. But I suspect a good bifold door will be cheaper.

Oh dear, worse than I thought! I think I will find bi-fold doors annoying, as I tend to close doors to keep the breeze out! Will look into other types of French doors. Thanks for posting.
