I never thought anything could make my apartment look even bigger, but Foldingslidingdoors.com did just that! They give me amazing views without blocking the panes with wall-to-wall windows!

Trustworthy, Top-notch Doors! It's rare to find a company as reliable as this one! Their doors are top quality, service is speedy, and surprisingly affordable too. Highly recommend!

Excellent product and services

I have used The Folding Sliding Door Company for about 6 years and have nothing but positive things to say about their sales, customer service and install teams. I had 1 slight issue a few years ago which was accidental and I understood these things happen but even with that being said they still went above and beyond to make sure the issue was sorted quick. I've worked in this industry for years now and have tried so many companies out there but I just wouldn't go anywhere else anymore. My customers are always chuffed with the results and the products. I would highly recommend this company.

Mr Hodges

Mr Roy

Pretty straightforward, everyone was helpful. Had doors before from the same company which have been very good.

Ms Considine

Did a perfectly good job and fixed a small snag on doors previously bought from them a few years ago for free - very good.

Mr Neilan

Mrs Walker

The contractors were punctual, informative and installed the doors in a very short period of time. I was entirely happy with the service.

Excellent comms and excellent workmanship.

Mr Burrows
GB · July 2022

On 31/05/22 I emailed FSDC to explain the opening door in our inward opening bifolds had dropped slightly. Later the same day FSDC emailed to explain that they would be in touch to arrange an engineer visit. On 08/06/22 two engineers (Kev & Alan) visited and make slight adjustments to rectify the issue. They were both extremely helpful, friendly and keen to resolve the issues.

Mr Ball
GB · June 2022

High quality new door and window. Great company to deal with.

Mr Ross
GB · June 2022

This is our second purchase from FSDC and we are very happy with the product and with the service we have received so far.

Mrs Easton
GB · May 2022

Delivery driver was absolutely awesome, and installation team were quick, efficient and friendly! Mostly great dealings with the office team too except an unfortunate ambiguity over a late surprise price change. Overall very happy indeed with the doors themselves and the internal blinds are top class!

Mr Hughes
GB · May 2022

Since 5 years passed of our Folding Sliding Doors being installed, this is a real and honest feedback for this company. First of all, it’s a great product. Next, we are extremely happy with their customer service team, esp. Nathan. They respond very quickly once requested. They also put extra care and time every time when servicing our patio doors (which happens on a regular basis). Highly recommended. 5 stars.

Friendly and efficient company with product delivered on time. The installation was excellent and the installer most professional, courteous and efficient. Would highly recommend.

GB · February 2022

Friendly + proficient young team - Bobby + Jack. Advised arrival time day before + arrived promptly. Focused on job + well-mannered. Articulate at explaining issues I didn’t understand. Suggested making a how to operate + lock video as I’m handing over to new owners. Tidy + did the job to proper standard. Didn’t cut corners. Cleared everything away + no mess left. Felt reassured with one year warrantee for work done. In all dealings with the firm, as I tried to get fixed without call-out + ordering parts, found customer service super efficient. Susan in particular. Thank you team.

Ambleside · January 2022
