Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by xawdis OBSOLETE MODEL, NOT THE EASY INSTALL
If you are expecting to get the easy 45-minute install version of this door, this is NOT it. You will have to cut parts to fit, and will have to carefully drill holes in the door to attach the hinges, etc. This is an old model which is no longer sold in stores. In fact, when I called Andersen about it, they told me this model is no longer being manufactured, and has been replaced by the easy-install version
Expect it to take a few hours to install. It will be a bit of a challenge if you have never hung a storm door before.
I got this at a pretty good discount, or I would just return it and get the newer version, which is lower-priced (but does not include the latch hardware). They do guarantee goof-proof installation, so if you get a good price and you are willing to spend the time, go for it.
Unfortunately, it is not obvious from the description that this is the old version of the door until you look at the installation instructions in detail. Caveat emptor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYmom Great door and easy, fast install
I was incredibly lucky to find this door in the clearance section of my local HD because someone had bought the wrong size. I needed to replace a cheap storm door that gets lots of abuse daily. This door is solid and feels durable. I am single mom and I installed this door in an hour with a toddler trying to "help". It really was easy and fast. I probably would have preferred the storm door with the retractable screen because I do have a toddler and a dog, but I couldn't pass this one up for the price. It's a really great door!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TRCar54 Good product
This appears to be a very good product.
The instructions were well written and I had no real trouble installing the door. It's not really a 45 minute project unless you've installed this same door previously because you will be referring to the instructions quite a bit.
The only real complaint I have is the lockset supplied with the handle. It is available in either Schlage and Kwikset keying but it appears that the handles are only shipped with Kwikset in the package. I think the option of a Shlage supplied handle should be available at the store instead of only Kwikset.
Also....I paid $257 plus $50 for the handle. Maybe the price listed includes the handle.

The storm door is made extremely well and is heavy duty. The installation was easy and the removal of the double-paned glass to screen took less than a minute. The handset is solid and the lock works well. I purchased three doors and will have them keyed the same. Great features and well-made.

Eas directions for install, one minute change time from glass to screen or back, toe-tap button to hold door open is great for my disabled wife, and it looks beautiful! We chose to use only the bottom closure so it closed softer, and the directions it says to follow to re-key the lock don't exist. I'd recommend this door to everyone.

Door was as easy as it could be to install. Just had to follow directions and have tools to trim to size,drill and screw to secure.
My son in law was so impressed with the quality and look of the door I bought him one too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buckeye58 Great Door and Very Easy Install!
Although I have installed many brands of storm doors before, this was the very first Anderson door I have worked with. Even reading the instructions and following them step by step, I was still finished in an hour. If I would have went solely on past experience, 45 minutes would be more than enough time.
Compared to the other brands, this door is a breeze to install. The door comes shimmed within the frame, since it is pre-hung, so there is no worry in getting the door squared and even within the frame. All the parts and pieces are very well laid out. The documentation and instructions are so much better written and easy to understand compared to other brands that there is no equal to this aspect of the product available.
The door itself is very well built and is of the quality that I have not seen in a long time. The finish is perfect and the frame and door is protected with adhesive plastic that peels off when you are done. It's solid and the glass to screen exchange is one of the better ideas and is super easy to do with no tools needed.
There is a trick to installing the screw covers. You angle them into one side of the track and snap the other side in a little at a time. You work your way down the strip and they go in very easily. Once installed, they will never fall out once snapped in. No need to use lubrication or soak them in the sun as others have said.
Very impressed with this unit and I will be recommending this brand from now on. This is a prime example of you getting what you pay for.
