"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"
Marwan had been living in his semi-detached home in North London for 2 years before making a start on renovating. During that time, he had thought about the project and visualised how it would eventually look. The idea was to create an open plan kitchen/diner that could flow into both the lounge and garden. Marwan placed high importance on letting natural light into the home to create a spacious feel within room.
Out with the Old
The first task was to get rid of the existing kitchen, which meant tearing out all the current appliances, fixtures and fittings. Marwan also completely knocked down the back of the house so he could extend outwards and upwards, which would give him a larger kitchen as well as an extra bedroom.
Marwan's home before the renovation project
It was important that the products used in the home were of a high quality to make sure they were not only aesthetically pleasing, but would continue to work faultlessly, year after year. This is why Marwan took a very hands on approach when deciding what products would be used in the build. For example, he researched extensively which kitchen would be the best for him, before finally deciding on using a Schüller kitchen, from Germany. The marble worktop with white, handleless units gives the kitchen a modern feel that is also felt when looking at the aluminium sliding doors, which cover a massive 7.5 metres and let in an abundance of light.
Origin's Made to Measure Blinds Bring a Personal Touch
After having doors installed for a short while, Marwan realised that he would like a way to dress them. Marwan explained “The doors are fantastic, but I needed an easy way to create some shade when necessary and have privacy at night, as the garden is overlooked.” After 6 weeks of researching curtains, vertical blinds and electric blinds, Marwan decided he much preferred Origin’s electric roller blinds. It was the combination of superior product and unmatched customer service that were the deciding factors.
“Origin offered me vast choices in every aspect, which enabled me to have exactly the solution/ product I wanted without compromise” he added.
Origin Blinds come in an extensive range of fabrics to cater for all tastes, and are the ideal soft furnishing solution for large openings such as bi-fold or sliding doors. After requesting samples of several different fabrics, perspective grey was chosen. Perspective grey has a 3/5 star blackout rating, so is perfect for living rooms as they act as shade whilst still letting some light in. The blinds came with a 5 year guarantee and have 3 motors so each blinds panel can be operated individually.
Fantastic Results Boost the Price of Marwan's Home
Overall, the project took 7 months to complete, and the house value has increased by approximately 70%. We asked Marwan for some advice on successfully extending a home... His advice was “Plan everything, even the minor details. The more planning you do, the better the end result will be and the more time you will save.”
