"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 doors are beautiful quality and look it too. They were fitted expertly by Hybrid Windows and look stunning. I am more tham pleased with them."
"Professional measuring up and installation .Good organisation by Emma.one minor blemish,a rather obtuse attitude from a lady in logistics when I was trying to talk to Kerry.Product excellent.will readily recommend the company."
"We had the bi fold doors supplied/fitted by formost 2000 and they are top quality and look fantastic I was delighted with the look and how good the installers were"
"Elegant bifold doors which maximise our view of the garden."
"The customer care provided by Bristol Bi Fold Doors was exceptional. We chose the product because of the quality, the guarantee and because of the different options. Installation was done with care and pride and we are delighted with the end product - particularly the internal blinds."
"Doors and window were exactly as I expected. Installers really professional and personable. I am really pleased with the finished product."
When Martin and Jane lived in St Albans, they would regularly visit Devon for holidays throughout the year, due to their love for the South-West county. In fact, they loved Devon so much that for 25yrs, it became their preferred holiday destination. It was only after those 25yrs that the couple were able to realise their dream and move away from the busy city, and relocate to the calming countryside.
It wasn't easy finding the right property though, as they wanted something by the coast that wasn't too old. It took three-and-a-half years of searching, but finally, they found a property that had potential in Teignmouth, just north of the River Teign and had only been built four years beforehand. It was also right by the coast, so close that you can actually see the sea from the garden.
Achieving Unobstructed Views
One of the first jobs they wanted to complete after moving in was replacing the existing narrow French doors to freshen up the look of the back of the house, enabling them to maximise the view they had of the coast. The French doors had fixed panes on either side and they severley restricted the view to the patio, garden, and beyond due to thick frames.
The solution the couple decided on was bi-folding doors.
When they were living in St Albans, they saw an advertisement for Origin, so decided to do some research. They got in touch and found out some more information before visiting one of Origin’s partners’ showrooms nearby.
"We loved the operation of the doors and the overall look," said Jane. "We knew this would give us what we were looking for - a view without thick frames in the way when the doors are closed, and the ability to open the space up when the weather allows it."
The couple also knew they wanted aluminium doors rather than uPVC or other options, plus, they were impressed with the marine coating that is available from Origin, as it's ideal for properties that are close to the coast and comes with a great, all encompassing guarantee.
"That was peace of mind that we could not pass on," said Jane.
While the doors let a lot of light into the house and give great views over the garden and beyond even when closed, the truth is they are open most of the time Martin and Jane are in the house. They have an attractive patio area outside with seating and dining facilities – the bi-folding doors make this area much more integrated with the inside space of the house.
Jane said: "We especially like having our morning coffee with the doors open and being able to enjoy the fresh sea air and stunning views overlooking the coast. The doors really have become a feature of the house."
