We live in Northern California and the weather here gets really hot in the summer. Do bi-fold doors have poor insulation? And I would like to know the cost just for the doors and railings?

Panda Windows & Doors
@Joy De Guzman Williamson
To answer your question, it all depends on the frame construction, glazing, gasketing system, etc. We have a model of Bi-Folding Door that is thermally broken, which provides the system with superior weather performance. The thermal break technology used consists in separating the aluminum profile to reduce thermal conductivity. This is achieved by using a polyamide iso-bar, with glass fibers integrated to provide maximum strength. Here is a link to the system I was just referring to: http://www.panda-windows.com/products/by-type/folding-doors/ts-60

Hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

What used to be a storage area filled with boxes and random things is now a space that reflects the current lifestyle of this family. "[My clients] can always convert the pavilion into an office, music room or an in-law apartment in the future, but for now, it meets the needs of their fun and active family." The best part of the renovation was when Menter's clients e-mailed her a picture of the kids in the pavilion with a sign that read, "Best room ever!"
