    We're about to replace some windows / sliding doors and entry doors .

    Any suggestions on good brands for bifold doors - will be going for aluminium .

    For standard doors we've either gone for Hume or corinthian in the past .

    What are trend windows like ?

    Ours were built by a company which was bought out by Boral.

    Good quality heavy section.

    It'd be part of Do well nowadays but they were based on the Central Coast.

    I’m in the industry and all windows & doors company’s are my clients, depends where your based but briefly in terms of quality, paint finish, longevity and name in the market

    I personally have used Bradnams in any of my Reno’s. Good value for money. If it was my own home, and wanted top quality I’d go G James or Rylock with breezeway or AWS louvre systems

    Lower end
    Southern star
    A&L

    Mid range
    Trend
    Bradnams
    Dowell (G James)
    Capral
    Wideline

    Upper range/premium
    Alspec
    AWS
    G James
    Capral
    Rylock

    Nah! You'll be updating them every couple of months and they won't work any differently, they'll be full of patches in no time they're subject to virus attacks and you will have to keep your subscription current or you'll get locked out. :oops:

    Always been a fan of AWS and Alspec for aluminium bifolds/sliding doors. It's more a commercial product but they have a nice range that suit residential application too.
