"Excellent quality products which look good and are clearly well made."
"Our origin door has opened up our kitchen and breakfast room to our beautiful garden"
"Great products. Very satisfied with door and window."
"So it’s now been approximately a year since I had my bifold doors installed... I’m not one to rush into a review !! How can you tell if the product costing a pretty penny is good within a week or two ? I have to say I am totally happy with my choice of Origin for my extension. I looked at several companies and overall I found the quality stood out from the rest and British made too ! A year on and that choice has stood me well, wholly satisfied and would recommend their product."
"Good quality windowframes and bifold doors - a perfect fit in the apertures according to the supplied measurements. However one of the joining bars (fitted in the factory) was attached to the wrong side of the frame, which had to be rectified on site."
"Great quality, good colour choice available, excellent locking mechanism, looks very stylish at the side of our bi-fold door"
"Excellent product and brilliant local agent (Lincoln Window Design)"
"Excellent product, looks amazing!"
"Love the bi-fold doors! It is a little too early to say how they will stand up to repeated use but we've heard good things about them and the guys who installed the doors rated them. Big thumbs up so far."
"I have the bifold doors with the internal blinds looks fabulous easy to open and importantly easy to keep clean they are real show stoppers so impressed with the look"
"Purchased Origin replacement windows through Apollo Windows in Kent and they are as good as I thought when I first saw them. The quality of the window frames is excellent and I love the flush finish inside and out. They are not the cheapest but from all the windows I looked at, I am convinced they were the best aluminium windows on the market and worth the money."
"The works been done"
"The bi-fold doors we have had installed (by GX Home Improvements Ltd) are beautifully made, solid and yet very easy to open and close. We are now looking forward to opening a complete wall and extend our dining room into the new conservatory, great for our family meals with our children and grandchildren !"
"I went to East Grinstead Showroom and worked with Steve Jones, worth his weight in Gold The door are excellent the fitting was great, just one down side the window blinds dont hold there charge, apart from that i will keep recommending your doors."

When the Norman’s decided to install bi-fold doors into their home in Rickmansworth, they wanted the best, which is why they turned to Origin, and they were particularly impressed that Origin doors are entirely manufactured in the UK.
Julia Norman visited Origin’s factory and showroom in High Wycombe to see how the doors were made and to see the doors in action. The Norman’s have a holiday home in Spain and wanted a room in their UK home that reminded them of being on holiday. They chose Origin to help them recreate this feeling by designing bi-fold doors for their 7.5m by 3.6m extension.
The couple specified a five door set-up, where all of the doors fold and slide in the same direction and a separate three door set-up, which would create as much open space as possible. The couple included classic style aspects in the room’s redesign including crema marfil marble tiles, cream stone walls and inward opening windows, to help reflect the feel of their home in Spain.
Origin’s Bi-folding doors are thermally efficiency and the Norman’s specified them with feature tinted and self-cleaning smart glass, making them easy to look after. As the doors are made from high grade aluminium, the frames are manufactured to be very narrow, which means the doors provide the maximum view of the garden.
There are multiple finishes and RAL colours available for the doors and the Norman’s chose a realistic wood grain effect in Walnut to fit with the classic design of the house and to tie in with the look of the existing window frames. The extension measures 264sq ft in total and the redesign has meant the Norman’s can now enjoy the garden room they always wanted.
Julia comments, “The whole structure of the garden room is perfect, the living area has an open plan feel so we can enjoy the garden. It also serves as an ideal entertaining space. We love the infinity of light that seems to pour in throughout the day – it reminds us of our holiday home in Spain.”
Julia found that working with Origin was extremely straightforward. She explains, “We handed everything over to the Origin team who recommended the different builders and installers to complete the extension we wanted. The extension has changed the way we view and use the house. It was the change we needed to fall in love with our home all over again – we certainly won’t be moving any time soon.”
The Norman’s regularly have big family holidays in Spain and the couple wanted to bring that feeling of relaxation and hospitality to their Rickmansworth home. The new bi-fold extension has enabled them to do just that, by creating a unique and spacious living area for the whole family to enjoy. “One of the super things about Origin doors is that they are ‘finger safe’, my daughter has recently had a baby, and features like 'finger safe' gaskets are so important”, adds Julia.
The Norman's home certainly has the 'wow' factor as the light streams through the 4185 x 2070mm five set and 2525 x 2080mm three bi-fold set, naturally drawing the eye to their beautiful open-plan garden room.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Origin. Their confidence in their product translates – they are the best of the best. Their customer service is second to none.- Julia Norman
