Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by David Horrible Door - Replacing after 3 years
We installed THREE of these horrible doors on a screen porch in spring of 2013. They were professionally installed by our contractor. After 2 years, they began to bulge and the metal sheathing began to burst on the inside along the bottom edge, around the glass, and around the door closer. All three doors did the same thing to varying degrees. As the core of the door began to swell, they then began to no longer close properly. I had to resort to using a rubber mallet on the edge of one to beat it down enough so I could close it to keep out the weather. We're totally disgusted. Now, we are shopping for new doors. These doors should have lasted our lifetime. Did not expect to be buying new ones a few years later. Avoid these doors. I will never buy EMCO again. Total waste of $300 + the cost for the original installation. Money flushed down the toilet. Total garbage. See my photos and buy at your own risk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed Poor quality, returned it upon opening the carton
Don't by this model unless you want to install a new one every year.. The bottom of the door appears to be bare unfinished particle board, just waiting to swell up the first time it gets wet. Same for the sides of the door. I returned it and bought something better. This is called a storm door. What kind of storm door can't get wet? I guess they're referring to dust storms or possibly wind.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Would return it if it wasn't so much trouble.
This door is constructed cheaply. When you open and shut the door the glass rattles in the frame. The manufacturer (Anderson) easily could have put the screen on top. Putting the screen on the bottom makes absolutely no sense. Of course everyone who goes in and out of this door (when the glass is up) end up pushing on the screen!
When the glass is up exposing the screen, the glass rattles even more!
After having this storm door installed for a coupe of weeks now, I hate it! If it wasn't such a pain to remove the frame and door, I would return it.
I wished I would have spent the extra money on a storm door that was constructed better and had a screen at the top of the door, not the bottom.
Anderson should be ashamed to put their name on this storm door.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MoreDoorReplacement Get what you pay for
Installation wasn't bad, DIY'er could do it pretty easily. Door looked good, kinda flimsy. I replaced 6 doors on our house. Hasn't been a year and the sliding window broke. Every time you open and shut the door it shakes badly on hinges and flops the door around. That caused the sliding window to shatter. Frame on the door itself needs to be sturdier, not the door frame, but the door itself. I knew they swell with moisture and only expected to get 5 years out of it, but having to replace it within the first year is pretty sad. I used 4 of this door and 2 nicer Anderson one (more expensive). Go with a nicer anderson and you'll be happier. Also the doors often spill water out the bottom when opening after a rain. The bottom seal/trim collects water and probably is causing the swelling. I put caulk around it on the outside to stop this. They are about what I expected for the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sawdust Deteriorated within one year
This door began to deteriorate within one year after installation. It exhibited swelling of the core and corrosion of the metal parts. Anderson should be embarrassed to be associated with EMCO. I will be calling to see about their warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patc2 Sturdy storm door
This door was a good buy. The price was great and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. It looks really nice. It wasn't real easy to install and took longer than we thought but all in all not bad. I would, and already have recommended this door to family and friends. I would buy it again.

This was the third door that I have purchased and installed. The price can't be beat and the installation was a breeze.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Goedric Garbage... Several Faulty and None Fit Properly. HD should be ashamed.
Bought 2 of these,,, I had to return 3 units to get one where the piston on the door closer actually functioned at some level... still works poorly. The quality is horrible. Too bad.. the door looks nice. Also, I got the 30" version for standard HD 30" doors... Guess what... it does not fit... not even close. I had to hand chisel the pre-hung door frame so that this could be mounted... ON TWO SEPARATE doors... what a disappointment... GARBAGE... will NEVER buy an EMCO product again... and I mean never
