"Although our extension isn't finished,we love the doors, the colour and how smooth the open and shut"
"They look beautiful the only thing is not good the fact 1 of the doors just swings about nothing to hold it back"
"The lead times are absolutely amazing and the quality is great too. Unreserved recommendation!"
"Good quality materials used. Excellent appearance and finished our extension to a very high standard. Admired by everyone."
"Had my new doors fitted last week absolutely love them"
"Fast, efficient and a great quality product!"
"Good design for looks, security, and the dual colour option."
"I had the Bifold doors and a residential door. I purchased my Bifolds through Basfords in Nottingham I live in Birmingham and these guys were the best to go with price wise and confidence wise. I cannot tell you how fantastic my doors look the attention to detail on both the Bifolds and the front door is second to non. Thank you to Origin and thank you to Basfords who are a real credit to the Origin team."
"Hello, I have this week had a bi-fold door fitted in my home by Fox Windows and Doors of Stoneleigh in Warwickshire. My wife and I are very pleased with the door. However, although we requested that the internal seals and gaskets would be white in colour to match the internal colour of the door, one of the gaskets is black. See enclosed photos. When we questioned this with our supplier, we were informed that they had contacted your company and were advised that this particular gasket (the one that seals the main opening door) was only supplied in black. This seems a bad idea as it detracts from the look of the door. Why offer all other seals and gaskets in white but offer this one only in black? If you cannot supply this gasket in black, there is not much that I can do about it, but my feedback would be that in future you should offer it in white as it will improve the look of the door. If in future you do decide to supply it in white, can I have one please?!! Thank you. John Bench p.s. this "review" is a copy of an email that I sent to Origin customer services on 17th November. I have not received a reply!"
"The doors are extremely well made and fit perfectly. They look fantastic"
"Very pleased with Bi-folds noticed big difference from are old patio double glazed doors, fitters had radio on outside and you could hardly hear it and we think it made room warmer."
"It was obvious to see by both looks and operations that it was a quality product"
"Brilliant doors and they look great! Would highly recommend"
"Good quality product. Bi-fold doors far better than our old sliding doors."
"Origin Bi fold doors are absolutely great, very easy to glide back to open and close. Made a difference to the room."
"Doors very good but small issue with finish on leading edge of door. Silver cover bar does not extend to top of door. Examples in Orion Windows showroom no better. Poor finishing to an otherwisea good product. Orion Windows chased up with yourselves and was promised a call from your technical team to explain the problem but nothing forthcoming. (See attached photo) Disappointed customer"
"Fitted quickly and expertly by Essex Bifolds. It all works very smoothly."
""Romsey Conservatories provided an excellent service and patiently held the quote while we obtained planning permission for our 5 panel cornerless bifold on a second floor balcony overlooking the sea. They liaised extremely well with us and our builder who was managing the work, and the installation went very smoothly, on time and with no problems. After sales service has been faultless. The end result is stunning!""
"Product very good - would have welcomed a guide to maintain the bi-fold doors for on going reference especially as i believe they may have dropped making opening difficult. But no faulting the quality."
"Only had the the bi fold doors about a month and seem so far to be okay. However, I have two issues, firstly condensation on the frame, it is a new build so this could be due to the building drying out and time will tell. Secondly, I require a door restrictor, but Origin do not offer one, consequently my only option is to add a cabin hook which will not improve the appearance of the doors."
"Beautiful stylish big old doors , Easy to use and maintain"
Ray and Sue Fisher run Park Mill Farm Holiday Cottages in Chulmleigh, Devon - a busy destination with guests visiting all year-round. Their home, where they have lived since 2003, is part of the eight-acre site of Park Mill which also features the holiday cottages and a stunning garden, immaculately maintained by Ray.
The garden room is particularly popular, being used extensively by Ray and Sue, as well as their guests. It has beautiful views and helps make a closer connection between the inside space of the house and the garden.
As the garden room is so important to the property and their guest’s experience, Ray and Sue decided it needed a revamp to modernise it, which included removing the old and tired windows that had become draughty and problematic.
The couple spoke to a local builder who recommended they look at the options provided by Origin’s Bi-folding Doors, known for their thermal efficiency, where Ray and Sue soon found exactly what they were looking for.
As well as opening up the garden room more, Ray and Sue wanted to match the colour of the doors with the interior decor of their home which features an attractive combination of French Oak and English Oak that make up the frame of the room.
"We decided we wanted to contrast the oak to give the new doors a real contemporary look while maintaining the country charm," said Sue. "I finally settled on anthracite grey for our bi-folding doors. It wasn’t the easiest of choices, but I am delighted with the result."
The renovation of the garden room and the installation of the Origin Bi-fold Doors is now complete and Ray, Sue, and their guests are now able to enjoy the room and patio area like never before.
The problems with the draught are gone too; the room is cosy and warm, even on cold days, so guests can now use the garden room all year round.
Sue said: "Ray and I love it as well, we spend as much time here as possible. The real test, however, is the guests. Most of them react the same when they see the room, they open the bi-folds, and see the unrestricted, stunning views of the garden and just say 'wow'. I think it is safe to say they like it!”
"The view is now uninterrupted, so it is possible to enjoy the ever-changing nature of the garden as the seasons shift. It is wonderful sitting here over morning or afternoon tea.”
The reception to the Fisher's garden room and new bi-folding doors has been so positive that their neighbours are now looking into getting Origin Bi-fold Doors fitted in their homes too.
