"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. "

"we had a new bifold patio door fitted by indelux windows of Cheltenham Gloucestershire. very pleased with the origin door and also very pleased with the fitters a very clean and tidy job .many thanks"
"Beautiful door. Will be purchasing my front door as well soon as the funds are available. "
"The quality and final finish is excellent. The installation was done by contractors who installed without any problems. The Warranty validity is reflection of 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 "
"Very pleased, with the panel, which goes beautifully with the doors."
"We had Origin Bi fold patio doors fitted to our new extension,and they look fantastic . The doors are well made using good quality fittings.We have Sun in the mornings so they make the Garden feel part of the house."
"Dropped in to their showroom unannounced with my 2 small children. They were extremely accommodating and I didn't feel that they were at all annoyed with my children rubbing their grubby hands on their lovely clean display doors! The order process was straight forward and I felt informed throughout. The fitting was completed quickly and the staff were very nice. Would reccomended Bristol Bi-fold. "
"Our bifold doors have enabled us to bring the outdoors indoor! The product is faultless and so, so easy to keep clean."
The Bellafonte’s first moved into their Bath property back in 1994, and after 10 years of living there, began to consider moving up the property ladder. Whilst they heavily considered moving, the stamp duty and legal fees were excessive, which led Carmelo and his wife to build an extension on their home instead. The aim was to create more space whilst increasing the value of the property.
Despite being a busy wedding photographer and student landlord, Carmelo was keen to get involved with the hard work and took it upon himself to paint the entire extension himself. This is even more impressive when you consider they also converted and integrated a side garage to be part of the new extension. From start to finish, the entire project took seven months to complete.
During the design stage, Carmelo's architect suggested the installation of bi-folding doors. Research into what was available led the Bellafonte’s to Origin. They had some specific requirements; Carmelo's wife, for example, wanted an option that was highly secure to protect the back of the house when it was locked up at night.
"There are a number of things I like about Origin," said Carmelo. "I like the quality of the doors, I like the fact they are designed and manufactured in Britain, and both my wife and I like the security features. I was also bowled over by the 20-year guarantee as it is twice as much as the other manufacturers I looked at."
The industry standard guarantee for bi-folding doors is 10 years, but Origin offers 20 years for complete peace of mind.
A lengthy discussion took place about the colour of the doors, and the couple contemplated going for anthracite grey before eventually deciding on white to match the windows throughout the rest of the house.
One of the most unique features of the new room is a crate which Carmelo's mother brought to England when she moved from Sicily in the early 1950s. Carmelo preserved the crate and it now sits as a centrepiece, giving a vintage contrast to the contemporary doors as well as acting as storage for some of his 900+ vinyls!
Carmelo and his wife host regular parties and frequently have more than 20 guests milling around their living, dining, patio, and garden areas. Carmelo said the response from guests regarding the extension, and specifically the doors, has been great.
"The overall response has been fantastic. The doors are the perfect finishing touch to the house. We love them."- Carmelo Bellafonte
