"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"
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
