"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."

A couple from Berkshire are now enjoy stunning riverside views thanks to a £170,000 renovation. Mr. and Mrs. Brown, from Purley on Thames, radically updated their character property to create a huge open plan living area with breath-taking views overlooking the River Thames.
The property was renovated by Kevin Brown and his wife, over a three year period, with the aim of making the most of their home’s riverside location.
One major element of the project was removing the existing wooden sliding doors and replacing them with Origin’s sleek, made-to-order aluminium bi-folding doors. The wooden doors were heavy, making them difficult to operate, and they didn’t hold up very well to the weather as they often let in drafts and water.
Kevin said: “I knew I wanted bi-folds because of the space they offer. I was drawn to the functionality and how you can open up and transform an entire space.”
After speaking with Origin, Kevin specified a total of four sets of bi-fold doors, each having three doors. Two of these sets were installed on the ground floor, and are separated by a large wooden beam that runs vertically throughout the house. These doors helped create a seamless link between the living room and front garden, making the most of the space available and drawing the eye to the riverfront views. The doors were fitted into apertures of 2967mm, with each door leaf measuring 939mm by a standard height of 2271mm.
The Browns installed the other two sets of bi-fold doors upstairs, which open up the open plan kitchen and dining area onto a balcony to create a bright and airy space with amazing views. The doors sit below a gable window which allows natural light to flood into the home. The doors upstairs fit apertures of 2965mm, with each door leaf measuring 939mm by a standard height of 2126mm.
The doors are extremely easy to operate as the wheelbase moves smoothly along the solid aluminium carriage, so all the Browns need to do to create a whole new living space in their home is simply slide the doors open. The doors were installed just four weeks after they were ordered as a result of Origin’s ‘Your Lead Time, Not Ours’ zero lead time service. This quick service meant the couple’s doors could be delivered exactly when they needed them for their project.
Impressed with the quality and service from Origin, the Browns continued their renovation project by using Origin Windows throughout the house. Coupled on to the bi-fold doors upstairs are two fixed pane Origin windows. These were supplied as the same height as the doors to ensure that the view is not obstructed by a wall or corner, giving a full panoramic landscape.
The casement windows in the kitchen area were also replaced with Origin’s, which gave a stunning finish, as the flush casement finish has been designed to complement the elegant style of the doors. There are two sets of windows installed in the kitchen which are separated by a bold, white wall. They measure 2560mm x 870mm and 1685mm x 865mm.
A similar effect was done downstairs in the living area. The windows in the living area measure 2578mm x 1370mm, and are coloured in Anthracite Grey in order to match the doors.
The Origin Window was initially launched as Mr. Brown’s doors were being installed, but he and his wife had no hesitation in specifying them for his project as not only are they stunningly finished, but they are also incredibly secure and are available on a one week lead time which is revolutionary in the windows industry.
The doors and windows were finished in an Anthracite Grey powder coating, to offer a contrast and complement the dark wooden beams. The powder coating on Origin’s doors and windows is exceptionally hardwearing, requires minimal maintenance and is resistant to scratches and colour fading.
The Browns completed the look of their new doors and windows with Origin’s electric roller blinds, and opted for Strata SPC Parchment and Perspective Grey fabric. These blinds are completely bespoke, tailored to the size and colouring of the doors, and gives the Browns a cosy private retreat in winter.
The innovative addition of Origin’s Bi-fold Doors, Windows and Blinds has given the home a unique, modern feature which means the couple can now enjoy uninterrupted views of the River Thames.
