All of this potential beauty does not come cheap though. There is a trade off of increased cost for increased quality and material. Even though stone fabricators have additional hardware to assist them, which the ancients did not possess, it is still a very difficult and costly medium with which to work and the primary reason for a higher price point when compared to inferior grades of materials.
Time‐travelling back a few years, the best option for doors between house and garden were central‐opening double doors (French doors) which are still popular today. Fifty‐ish years ago, sliding patio doors enabled us to embrace more light in the home. Typically, these comprised two panes of glass that could slide left or right within side‐by‐side parallel grooves so that, when closed, natural light and a good view could be enjoyed. To open, one door would slide to overlap with the other door so that the total width of the opening was similar to that of French doors. Another down‐side of sliding doors is that they all too often became 'sticking' doors which became worse with the introduction of double glazing, doubling the weight of the doors and reducing the glass to frame ratio.
Moving forward to the next innovation enter the bi‐folding door: a combination of hinged doors that open in concertina style. Often called folding‐sliding doors, bi‐folds have various mechanisms that allow one side of the door panels to be guided along top and bottom runners while the remainder of each door panel is pushed out, together with its hinge‐attached partner, and so on for as many door panels that are connected.
