"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"
In Devon, a family decided to transform their home with the help of Origin’s Bi-folding doors. Upon arriving at the property, you can clearly see why this decision was made. The weather may be wet, cold and typically British, but the view from the property is spectacular: the vast rolling hills are the epitome of Britain’s green countryside.
On a quarterly basis, Origin hold a Best View competition, which encourages homeowners to take a picture of the view from their Origin Bi-folding doors. The winner has the chance to win a £500 John Lewis voucher. When the Origin panel saw Barton Barn, they knew it would be in the running for the top prize. The view did not disappoint and the Devonshire home was subsequently chosen as the winner.
The family home has been lived in for fourteen years and originally, there had been no plans to convert. The family had been informed that they would encounter difficulties with planning permission if they ever wished to undertake any major construction work. This was due to the property originally being part of a larger farming plot.
It wasn’t until the family were hosting a party with a small marquee in the garden following their son’s wedding, when it was pointed out to them that the beautiful view from their garden should be enjoyed every day. With this idea planted and the planning permission overcome, the family envisaged a wall of glass to enable them to view their garden and the stunning view that came with it. This led to the idea of building an oak conversion with Bi-folding doors.
Research for the perfect door was a key part of the building process, as was researching every other product to be used in the extension.
The search for a perfect door led them to various homebuilding shows to see what was on offer. Origin had been recommended by friends, and these friends were only too happy to show their Origin door which had been installed in a converted garage.
After seeing just what an Origin door could offer them, the family furthered their research by visiting their local Origin retailer to see what specifications were on offer. Jason at Prime had also been recommended and proved to be extremely helpful and friendly throughout the process.
“It was clear that we were going to have a set of Origin Bi-folds for several reasons, the fact that they were British made and of an exceptional quality were a key factor.”
Additional features of the Origin door include the finger safe gaskets, which play a vital role when children and grandchildren are at play. There is also the twenty year guarantee to give peace of mind.
The family opted for Anthracite Grey as the colour for their new door, which gives a contemporary feel to the property as well as complementing the colour of the oak. The configuration itself is a 5 door Bi-fold that folds in one direction. This gives an uninterrupted view when open.
The project itself took a total of six months, and the result is something the family are extremely proud of. No matter what time of year, this space can be enjoyed and the view marvelled upon. The doors will really see their full potential on warm summer days, when there is nothing more joyful than throwing open the doors and enjoying the views of the surrounding landscape.
