"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!"

"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"
After ten years in their Buckinghamshire home, the Davidson's were ready to replace some of the property’s original doors and windows with new and improved ones that remained true to the look and feel of their traditional property.
The main concern for Andrew Davidson was the old Crittall (metal framed) windows that had been in place since the house was built in the 1930’s. Over the years, the metal had deteriorated along with the timber they were fixed to, meaning most of them would not close properly, offered no security and were even letting creeping ivy and insects into the house. Needless to say, extreme draughts and a subsequent increase in energy bills accompanied these problems.
The solution was to install new, double glazed aluminium windows that matched the home aesthetically, resolved the draught and deterioration issues, and reduced noise levels from the nearby road.
Andrew came across Origin whilst looking for a company who could provide premium quality, weather proof, thermally efficient windows that could seamlessly fit into his family’s traditional home.
“The front of our house is South-facing and is exposed to weather extremes each season. We needed something strong, weather-proof and thermally sound.” – Andrew Davidson
The Origin Window, capable of achieving a U-Value of 0.9 and an unrivalled Energy Rating of A++ combined with Aerogel, immediately stood out to Andrew as the best product on the market.
In addition to the thermal efficiency of the Origin Window, the vast choice of colours meant that Andrew didn’t have to worry about losing the traditional look to his home. Opting for a Grey Brown (RAL 8019) finish with leadlight glazing, the Davidson's have proved that aluminium windows are not exclusively suited to modern homes.
With 24 Origin Windows spanning across the front of the family home, the Davidson's have eliminated all concerns of weather penetrating their living space.
As well as replacing a large number of their homes windows, the family also wanted to replace an old French door set with fixed glass panels at the rear of the house. In order to maximise the amount of natural light that entered the living area, these were removed and replaced with a wider pair of Origin French doors. This fulfilled Andrew’s requirements to maximise natural light and provide a much better view of the garden.
The Davidson's have also explored Origin’s versatility by installing an interior door between the living area and study. Looking for an aesthetically pleasing and near sound-proof door, Andrew has been incredibly impressed with the impact the internal door has had.
“What a difference!” was how he described the change in sound levels from before and after the installation. The Origin Door has made the study a completely tranquil environment to work, unaffected by the noise from the rest of the household.
The many benefits and improvements that the Origin Windows and Doors have brought to the Davidson home has certainly removed any style concerns previously held by the family with the aesthetics of the property, impressing Andrew the most.
“I’m so happy and surprised with how the doors and windows have matched with the rest of the property and helped to keep its original look.”- Andrew Davidson
