Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by barb Nice door... time to install...
I got this door to bring more light into a room and make it attractive. Installation took a lot of time and patience. The door was difficult to make square.. but with patience it was fine. After reading other reviews, i followed some advice. i painted one side and stained the other.. and they both turned out great. but you must sand the wood before you do either... the paint and stain will bubble if u don't. also i did i primer coat before painting. the plastic protection on the class from manufacturer was a wonderful time saver... the door looks great and i love it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lbendlin Good basis for special projects
I needed to build French doors for a non-standard, arched 42" doorway in an old house. Estimates for custom doors ran from 5000 to 6000 $, way beyond my budget.
The doors are from JELD-WEN, made in South Africa, the wood seemed mostly dry. The veneer is rather thin but the insides were solid and not too irregular. Big plus for me was the wide wooden border around the lites. I was easily able to rip the panels to the desired width. For my arches I simply flipped the doors upside down so I had enough material around the lites. Kickboard size is still sufficient.
The lites are covered in plastic which makes it really convenient to paint, and final cleanup is a breeze.
I mounted the doors on double action spring hinges, using two 4" hinges on each door (door weight ended up around 35 lbs per panel, so not an issue). Required a fair amount of re-mortising, obviously.

I had the door installed by a contractor who did a very good job. It was easy to install and took little adjustments to the fit the door into the opening. Love the way it makes the room look like a model home. It looks good even unpainted. I plan to paint it white this weekend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doorman1 Good quality doors
I installed a 5 ft set of these in my first house. We just moved this year and it was again the first project in the new house. 4ft version this time. Easy to install and the quality of the doors is great. The hardware for the door latches could be better if it was adjustable but not a huge deal. We painted this set white this time as we had stained them at the first house.

These are for a infrequently used hall closet. They look great, but wouldn't have them for high traffic use. The doors don't seem like they would take too much handling. Installation was not difficult. As I said these are perfect for intended use. Very happy with outcome.

The French doors are very attractive. We painted them white, they are baby nursery doors. They are exactly what we wanted!

If you are looking to just slap some doors in this may be ok. There were too many inconsistencies in manufacturing. The header jamb was too short. To get a space between the doors that allowed the doors to be closed without hitting each other required putting a longer screw in the top hinges, which kind of bowed the side jambs. I have installed several interior double doors and never run into the problems this door provided. Also, where the side jambs met the top jamb was different on both sides. One side was not flush and the other was stapled at a degree other than 90. Bottom line is I shouldn't have to spend my time finding ways to accommodate poor manufacturing.
