Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Johnnyxlh Good for the price
I bought this door to replace an older full glass Emco door. Over the years they clearly have changed a bit and are made with less material. This door requires a lot of drilling and planning, be sure to measure twice and lay everything out prior to installing. I do agree with another review about the plastic stops that hold in the storm door glass, bad design. The price was right but beware you get what you pay for.
the overall quality of the door is good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janzee Storm Door very nice looking
We did not install this door ourselves that is why the 3 rating on ease of installation. I watched the installer who also installed the door behind the storm door. Excellent job! Excellent employee, polite efficient, leveled, sealed door and all in all just a great job!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hilcat Massive piece of junk--NO stars!
This is a colossal waste of money, even for a shed. I wanted a new screen/storm door for the front porch. I am truly embarrassed to say that the price is what attracted me, the handyman thought it would be of better quality, as well. It's not nearly as adjustable as other brands, it's extremely lightweight and it isn't even close to fitting the existing frame on the bottom. The piece of lightweight plastic on the outside of the door hides the huge gap, but you can see it from inside, more important you can feel the draft.
You'll pay more in labor than the differential in cost to get a more solid door. I really wish I had thought it through for two more minutes. I will refuse delivery on the other one we're waiting for.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SalS Do Not Buy This Door!
Do not buy this door. It has a fatal flaw in the design. It is impossible to switch from screen to glass. The retaining strips are impossible to insert. The help line refers you to a video for the 3000 series Andersen door which has different retaining strips (better ones). I called back and was advised that I should trying warming up the strips to make them more flexible and to use a dowel to tap them in. It's been about an hour and half since I started. I'll try these suggestions, if the glass breaks, I get a different door. Buyer Beware.

I wish someone had told me I would need to purchase a different closer and handle for this door when I was at the store. The closer that comes with it allows the door to open to a 45-degree angle, not 90. Ever tried to bring in a baby stroller through a half way opened door? And the latch? It's plastic - soft plastic that wears away if you look at it. I'm currently using a piece of string to hold the door closed in the wind or when I have the door open for ventilation. I should have paid the extra $100 for a quality door as I'll be spending around $50 to fix this junker.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Groundhog1 Good look but not for major use
This door wasn't too bad to install. We bought two for our sun porch and they will work well as they won't get a lot of use. I can't say it would be good for an area that gets a lot of open and closing. Don't care for the way the screen and glass fastens in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DaveBr Not Very Durable if for a High Traffic Door
I purchased this door in a dark bronze color about 2 years ago. It looks great and the installation was fairly easy. We loved the look and function on our back door, which is the most used door in the house. The quality appears good at first, but over time, it seems like the hinge assemblies are not built durable enough to handle the weight of the door. About 6 months after installation, the hinges started to loosen and the screws started to strip out. I was able to tighten the screws at 1st to compensate, but with the metal wearing out, this was only a quick, temporary fix. I consulted the staff at Home depot where I purchased it, and they recommended larger screws, once again only a quick temporary fix. They instead should have recommended a warranty repair/replacement. After attempting a couple of other temporary, ineffective repairs they recommended, the door no longer shut properly and we just settled for it hitting the jam and not shutting/sealing properly. Now the top hinge has broken (a problem someone else mentioned), so I had to remove the door to prevent it from falling and shattering unexpectedly. With the cold weather upon us, we now are vulnerable to drafts and higher energy bills. I guess my question is, what does the 10 year structural warranty cover, and does the bad advice received from Home Depot personnel void this? Is it possible to receive a replacement hinge jamb to correct this along with some way to correct the stripped out holes where the hinge attaches to the door? I hope to see a reply from Emco here soon, as we would still like to keep this door if it can be made functional again since it still looks nice. As it is now, i would only recommend this door for a very low traffic area. If there are improvements made to beef up the hinge assemblies, and if Emco will stand behind their warranty, I will update this review to note these positive actions. Dave B.
