Excellent and very strong. Double the strength of other doors.
These doors are solid inside and out, instead of just a shell on the outside. They are very durable and should be able to withstand the winds that have collapsed two other sets of doors. Solid construction, easy set up, all materials are included, easy to follow instructions.
Excellent door - crummy hardware (plan on buying separately)
Be certain to READ the installation instructions! Installation is particular - perfect and simple IF you FOLLOW directions specifically with precise order of steps. Installation was otherwise straightforward and easy if steps were followed in order precisely.
I gave it 4 stars because of the "hardware" included. Hardware is very cheap - plastic and flimsy, not metal. Did not install it all because of that. We got a garage door opener instead.
Nice product, 7 on a DIY scale
I think delivery said between Oct 21-27... It arrived on the 28th... close enough. So delivery was timely.
The instructions were concise, and the installation took myself and a helper 4.5 hours. Not Including removal of old door and some rough opening tune up.

but if you read the install manual, it states, that is normal due to different weights of doors. Working together, the springs provide a TOTAL amount of lift.

Maybe they didn't follow the spring setting procedure, take your time, READ and REREAD the instructions and you should be fine. This gets a 7 on the DIY scale because it isn't something just "any homeowner can do". I chose not to replace the door opener (1/2hp lift master) because the old wood door was considerably heavier, and it was in good working condition. This a quality product from a well known company. Would certainly recommend.
