"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."

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
