Bi – Fold doors

Hi Diane hope you are all well,I would just like to thank you all for the first class service you all provided for us when sorting out our bi-fold doors.

The whole team from when we first met you until the guys who came to fit them all absolute professionals.

We are truly grateful and the doors look amazing needless to say anyone wanting bi-fold doors we will point in your direction.

Thanks again everyone take care & stay safe.

Precision and Quality

Diane was amazing, so co-operative and understanding to our needs. She could not have done any more.

She and all members of staff were very welcoming to me and my wife. They showed us everything we needed to see and there was no hard sell.

The product was made with so much precision and quality. I don’t think I would have been able to find anything equivalent for the same money.

We are looking forward to the new sliding doors to be fitted into the extension in the new year and complete the revamp of the house downstairs.

Thank you again for all your kindness and support.

Regards Guru

I’m really happy with the doors

I’m very pleased with the service I got, and the contact with your store throughout the process. Delivery was very prompt, and installation went very smoothly. I’m really happy with the doors and loving opening the whole lot. March 2015

The product is outstanding and engineered extremely well

I would thoroughly recommend open living. From the initial contact right through to the final installation everyone I have dealt with has been first class.

Delighted with the doors

We are delighted with the doors, the installation was very tidy and professional – they really make the room and everyone comments on their design and low profile. Couldn’t be more impressed. We’ll be back! June 2015

What a fantastic service

After days of research, I found open living on the internet. I spoke with Zoe who not only met my expectations but exceeded them by far. From choosing which doors to having them installed to finalising the invoice. What a fantastic service…. November 2015

Mr Donaghey - Hitchin Hertfordshire

Totally professional installation

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to you, Marsha and the rest of the team for an excellent job well done. Totally professional installation, friendly and extremely efficient. The doors have totally transformed the living space. I just can’t wait to show my friends and family, and also promote Open Living. I will only consider Open Living for future windows and doors. March 2016

We’d just like to say thank you for the fantastic doors and roof light. These look AMAZING! We love the internal blinds and all the options open to us with them. Can’t wait for the summer to get full use out of them. April 2016

Mr & Mrs Rao - Bedford Bedfordshire

The staff couldn’t be more helpful

The pre-sales service was excellent and the staff couldn’t be more helpful throughout the process. The advice we received and help with ordering the roof lantern was above and beyond what most companies would do. There was a slight delay in delivery due to an oversight in ordering the integral blinds but it was only a couple of weeks. The installation guys knew exactly what they were doing and installed the doors perfectly. They were knowledgeable, professional and very nice guys to have in your home. The build quality of the product itself is excellent and it looks very good and works well. The doors have only been installed a few months but so far everything works just as we hoped. The only slight thing that could be improved is the pre-survey information. We wanted the interior tiles to finish flush with the bottom of the internal frame and were told by telephone that we couldn’t have it, so we have a 20mm step-over. When the surveyor arrived to do the site survey he told us we could have had it but it was too late then. The doors still look great and we are delighted with the overall service and have no hesitation in recommending Open Living and would buy from them again. June 2016

Mr & Mrs Lean - Harston Cambridgeshire

Finished article was of first-class standard

Open Living supplied and fitted a set of bifolding doors for us on an extension carried out in May/June 2016. I was very happy with how professional everything was handled from the choosing and ordering to the final fitting, and the finished article was of a first-class standard. I would be very happy to recommend OPEN LIVING for any future works and will be using them again for my future projects.

Mr Kreller - Stotford Hertfordshire

We wholeheartedly recommend

We are really pleased with our new windows and bifold doors, they are fitted beautifully and look brilliant. From our initial phone call to installation, everyone we have spoken to and met has been totally professional, everything has gone smoothly and the whole experience has been stress free. We wholeheartedly recommend ‘Open Living’. May 2017

Alison & Keith Waspe - Milton Keynes Buckinghamshire

Excellent service throughout

Customer Reviews

Open Living was one of the last suppliers we discovered, but we were taken by their great range of windows, doors and lanterns as well as their sales team. Diane walked us through the many options but also listened to our preferences. Rather than steering us toward the most expensive option they were usually able to offer a choice on each aspect and the pricing was very transparent and competitive. Excellent quality ranges of windows, doors and lanterns. We opted for the Origin bi-fold doors, Origin aluminium windows and Atlas roof lights, all superb build quality/spec and great colour options.The installation team led by Danny and backed up in the office by the all-knowing Marsha and Linda were efficient, thorough and a pleasure to have on-site, coordinating well with our builder. Our neighbours also used Open Living before us and had a few issues at installation, but we believe these were mainly due to a supplier issue. All our windows, doors and roof lights went in as planned, well secured and sealed, with no damage.The only little point of feedback on their whole process is that the final quote and specification can spread across more than one document which did add a little uncertainty. This meant we had to double-check exactly what was coming. An all-inclusive final statement of all the options would be good. However, with a little bit of checking everything did come exactly as expected and we are extremely happy with the finished project.We would definitely recommend Open Living.

Open Living installed Origin bi-folding doors for our home. Their quality and service has been excellent throughout. Very trustworthy company. Right from the start, they provided good advice to help us select the right doors for our home; their quote was very competitive; their customer service was excellent throughout as they kept us updated on progress. The quality of the doors and the installation has been top-notch. Would highly recommend.

We purchased 1 set of bifold and 1 set of French patio doors, both Origin. Sales approach and customer service was excellent. Fitting and installation also excellent. Can't fault the product, either. Would have been 5 stars if it wasn't for an issue we had around the height of the threshold, which turned out to be much higher than we wanted/were expecting. This issue was resolved in a satisfactory way after discussion. Would definitely recommend, but my advice is to make sure the threshold height for patio doors is agreed at the survey and written on the paperwork before parting with any money.

Lovely people to do business with, we bought some BiFold doors and a window from OpenLiving. We did have a couple of minor teething issues once fitted but these were dealt with quickly and without fuss. Recommended!

I looked into a number of companies before deciding on Open Living in Letchworth for our bifold doors. I wanted the bifolds to be from a manufacturer that was very regarded, and Origin (though Open Living can also supply from Schuco and some other suppliers) certainly fall in that camp. I also liked the fact that Open Living were close to home, which made repeated visits to their showroom easy to make. Throughout the process, Linda and Marsha were professional and courteous and I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is looking to get bifolds to put OpenLiving Ltd on their shortlist.

So far I have ordered 12.5m sliding doors, 1 set of aluminium bi-folds and 5 windows from Open Living. The fitters are all great guys, and they take time to do a good job.The service and the products supplied have been excellent. I will be ordering more windows and do not hesitate to recommend them.

Had some OW80 windows that were fitted some time ago (by other installers, who had lost the cill caps).Marsha kindly helped me get some replacement items from Origin despite there being no financial incentive for open living to do so.Assistance has been very much appreciated and would highly recommend.

Had a great experience with Open Living. We had a 6m run of Origin bi-fold doors, an Atlas sky light some upvc windows installed. Customer Service and communication was good throughout, the installation guys did a good job and their technical guy was helpful with determining levels so we could achieve a level and flush threshold on the door. On top of this they were by far the lowest priced installer we found for the Origin doors which we had quoted by another three suppliers. Would recommend to others and will use again.

We weren't quite sure what bi-folding doors would be best but all the options were clearly and concisely laid out before us and some great solutions suggested to the issues we hadn't been able to work out on our own or with our builder. The showroom has lots of choice, brilliantly set out. We decided that Open Living would install our doors and they came and did a wonderful job.Looking forward to the spring to really get our new "open living" lifestyle underway!!
