"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."
For Will and April Tallamy, options for a new home in Bradworthy were limited when they began looking at the start of 2015. Will is a dairy farmer, working seven-days-a-week with his father, meaning he is on call 24/7, so has to live close to the farm. Unfortunately, there were no properties for sale close by which left the couple with only one option – a new build. They chose to build right next to the farm, for Will’s convenience, where they have stunning views over fields and the beautiful Devon countryside on their doorstep.
"Sometimes it’s easy to forget how lucky we are to live here," said April.
Even opening up the space to begin the build was a challenge. Where the house currently sits used to be dense bushes and trees, blocking the way for any work to begin. It took a team, led by Will, to tear through it all, of course being mindful of the wildlife, before they had a space big enough to start the work.
Soon after the build began, April fell pregnant with the couple’s first child. April wanted to be in their new home before she gave birth; the race was on. Friends and family helped with the building, plumbing and electrical work, and the couple were able to move in, in January 2016. A short two months later and baby Flynn joined April and Will in their new home.
To fully enjoy the surroundings, the couple wanted an open feel at the back of the house. There were other requirements too - the exterior is cladded with redwood cedar, so the windows and doors had to complement that look whilst also matching the modern and contemporary finish of the rest of the house.
After visiting their local Origin partner – Prime Windows, the couple knew they had found what they were looking for. The contemporary look of both the Origin Bi-fold and Window ticked all the boxes for the exterior look whilst the operation of the bi-folds especially allowed them to achieve the open back-of-house feel they wanted.
Prime Windows installed all the products with sixteen Origin Windows at the front of the house and a further four at the rear which are accompanied by four sets of 3+0 bi-folding doors, all in the ever-popular Anthracite Grey finish.
April said: "It takes my breath away waking up in the morning to look out of the bi-folding doors in my bedroom to the sun shining on the surrounding landscape. Will and I love them, and we love the windows, and our family and friends love them too.
The family has now lived in the home for a year, with Will only 50 metres away from the house he grew up and lived in before moving to his new home. Eight-month-old Flynn is enjoying the new house too - "He is an incredibly inquisitive baby," April explained.
With Origin's in-house designed running gear and 20-year guarantee, the bi-fold doors are likely to be part of Flynn's life throughout his childhood as he looks to explore the vast Devon countryside on his doorstep and maybe help with the farming too!
