Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pella Not waht I was expecting for an Anderson
Fit and finish about average. Installation, tricky to get door aligned and adjusted so it shuts smoothly and latches well. Comments on glass and screen removal and installation spot on. Very cheap and not reusable friendly plastic retainer holds glass and screen in. Not feasible for reinstallation so you'll need to order new retainer or figure something else out. Door operates very poorly with screen installed as closing and opening are problematic. Weight difference of glass vs screen causes the door to be pretty useless with screen installed. Also very disappointing that replacement glass is not carried at the stores and has to be special ordered .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tom Just Disappointed with the Screen/Glass retainers
I have an Anderson door that has the latches in the frame to get the glass in and out easily. I couldnt find that model, so I bought this one cause it doesnt have any bar across the middle. My first impression was that Anderson cut corners on this one.
It was easy enough to install. The materials are light and dont feel like my other door. It feels almost cheap. Once we got the door up, I noticed it has no skid plate. The door latches onto the frame. You cant even buy one for it. I dont get kid. It isnt secure by any standard. I called Anderson to see if I was missing something and nope.
The beast came when I went to install the screen. Oh my lord, how did this one skate past the testing phase. You have to pry 4 retainer strips into these grooves to get it to fit right. We tried for 2 hours and finally gave up. Two are in right, the other two are hanging on somehow. I looked it up on the Anderson website and the FAQs stated, "There is nothing wrong with the product. It is just hard to do.", regarding installing the retaining strips. It is mid-November and Im dreading the thought of installing the glass. So, Im off to Lowe's next week to buy a Pella and Im giving the Anderson one to my dad for his shed. We'll just apoxy the screen on. Otherwise, the door is pretty my useless.
I have to buy the door and door knob, that I think can to about 270. Just buy something better and spend the extra 30 - 50 bucks. Ill never go cheap again. Im disappointed in Anderson.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Keith Do Not Buy This Product
We bought this product a year ago. I had to replace the closer twice and it is now sagging due to the hinge being bent. We had this professionally installed and have been very disappointed to spend additional money for parts and it continues to have performance issues. This has had normal use with only adults using it. No abuse from kids.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lex3is9All Beautiful storm door
Beautiful storm door. Very pleased with purchase. "45 minutes time to install" on box is misleading. If the installer is experienced, 45" might be true, but for a do-it-yourself handy person, installation took longer and longer. Local Home Depot (#3633) personnel were very helpful in answering some questions. One question - why are some many extra screws included and not needed? It made me think I had not used screws where they should have been, but I could not find a place that needed the screws.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Debw Pleased with Installed Door
I ordered this door online and picked it up at Home Depot which saved on the shipping costs. I had a contractor friend install the door and he did have some issues with the installation. It took him around 3 hours not 45 minutes. Once the door was finally installed it looks great and the quality is good. My only real complaint is the strips that are suppose to cover the screws keeps falling down and we have to keeps putting them back on, very frustrating. Maybe we aren't doing it right?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alliesmom71 Product as descibed
I had the door shipped to store (saved $99) and it arrived before estimated time. We hired two men to hang the door, and they finished in about 40 minutes. They made the comment that it was the easiest door hanging job they had ever done. They said most doors are packaged unassembled and since this one was preassembled it didn't take as long. The door looks amazing!!! Well made, high quality, and I believe this door will last a very long time. Andersen brand doors are great doors! VERY PLEASED!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alsc Great door, great value
Highly recommend this door. The closers are a bit aggressive, but they definitely keep it closed. Comes with screen- easy to switch with the glass.
