"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."

Winter 2015 saw Origin get involved with an incredible project for a local Scout Group who required aluminium windows and a French door to complete the build of their brand new hall.
On 19th September 2015, exactly 13 months after the build began, the new hall was opened by Mayor Joan Spiers. It is the first venue that 17th Reigate Scout Group has been able to call home since they were founded way back in 1915. Over those 100 years, they have always shared venues with various other groups, but when the most recent host, St Joseph’s Church, announced plans for a new build that did not meet the group’s requirements, the opportunity for a purpose-built venue presented itself.
Despite such an opportunity, the group required firm support in order for the build to go ahead. After presenting their plans to landlords, parents, committees and the parish, the response was an overwhelming and resounding yes with the landlords going as far as offering a 50 year lease on the new property.
Funds for the new build were understandably limited so the group pulled in as many resources as possible from within, including planners, architects and fitters with 90% of the internal fitting being carried out by Scouting or community volunteers.
What made the project even more special was that the Group raised a considerable amount of the funds themselves through local events, sponsored hikes and an agonisingly close attempt of breaking the world record time for assembling a mile of pennies.
Despite such efforts, Group Scout Leader Mike Phillipson, knew it would also take incredible generosity from suppliers to help the group achieve their dream. They saved on costs wherever possible to the point where they stored 4 tons of timber from an old parish hall due to be demolished for two years and moved it six times so that they didn’t have to needlessly spend on flooring.
Although Mike was looking to save wherever possible, he had no intention of compromising on the quality nor safety of the windows or front door. This would ensure the longevity of the venue and minimise disruption due to the lack of maintenance required. With the Scout Group mostly needing the hall for evenings and weekends, security was understandably of high importance; a reason why Mike reached out to Origin.
“Origin were the only company to reply so enthusiastically. The emphasis on security, attention to detail and the desire to deliver a top-quality product came screaming across the whole way.”
The 8pt locking system on the door accompanied with the quality finish and security features of Origin products mean 17th Reigate Scout Group now have everything they need for pure peace of mind when away from the site.
Additionally, the freedom of choice when it came to choosing colours for the door and windows allowed the exterior of the hall to match the colour scheme of the newly built Church Hall next door. As if all of this wasn’t enough, Origin, as standard, were able to offer their 20yr guarantee to provide further assurance to the group.
17th Reigate’s Origin door emphasises the bespoke nature of the company. Most French doors are equal sizes but 17th Reigate have one lead door (900mm) accompanied by a much narrower slave door (314mm) that can be opened to accommodate for disabled access. The Scout Group’s need for a bespoke door has not compromised the quality of it thanks to the range of configurations that Origin offer.
The group also wanted windows that allowed a lot of light to enter the hall despite being high up on the walls for safety reasons. The large frames and narrow sightlines offered by Origin fulfilled these demands and now provide the hall with plenty of natural light, additionally helping the group minimise electricity costs where possible.
Exceeding all expectations, the group have also been able to maximise the space on site enough to offer a large meeting room for internal use and occasional outside hire through their website. Looking to the future, Mike predicts that, thanks to the new build, 17th Reigate will double in size within 4 years and be able to accommodate more youngsters than ever before.
Since the completion of the build, some of the group’s youngest Scouts have been able to enjoy their first sleepover in the hall. This event would not have been possible without the exceptional security and thermal efficiency of Origin’s windows and doors.
Long associated with local charities and community projects, Origin were keen to get involved with such a worthy cause after seeing the dedication shown by the entire Scout Group. The family and community-ethos that runs deep at Origin meant the decision to help in every way possible was never one in question.
