"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!"
"Good quality materials used. Excellent appearance and finished our extension to a very high standard. Admired by everyone."
"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"
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."
