"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"
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!
It takes my breath away waking up in the morning to look out of the bi-folding doors in my bedroom- April Tallamy
