Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sept22 It really makes an improvement to the front of my house.
I am pleased with my door, it enchances the front of my property. I have not had a screen door so this security door adds a plus. The color and design is very pleasing to the eyes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marsworldd Good Value For The Price!
The door looks solid enough, but is a bit difficult to install via the security screws that come with it. Instructions say to use a flat screwdriver to install them - but honestly, that is a great deal of work. I would suggest mixing the screws with lag bolts as we did or buying a security screw installer/remover tool. I am a 110lb female and we did get it done - but think even for a huge strong guy - those screws would be a toughie.
The doors appearance is nice and looks a bit more unique than most security doors. Overall - I'd say a good value for the cost of the door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Batman4oz White should be White
While the door is very nice...know that the Screen is actually Black! It does not say this in the description...it seems to show it in the picture, but this can be interpreted as just to contrast the white door from the white of the page.
The Navajo door is All Navajo, so this makes No sense!
As much as I like the low cost of this door...I will be returning it...I do Not want a Black screen facing west in AZ!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SedonaRemodeler PURCHASED 4, AND 2 BOWED
We bought 2 Navajo White,1 Bronze & 1 Black; 2 in-swing and 2 out-swing. This moderately-priced model was recommended by our HD door rep, so in spite of some reviews about "bowing", etc., we went ahead. The screen portion of these durable steel doors is a larger diamond mesh that will permit small insects through, because these doors are really for security rather than being bug proof and that was what we wanted, although it would have been nice to have a tighter fit or sweep at the bottom frame to keep small critters from wiggling underneath. Since all 4 doors were installed by our expert handyman, he simply attached a rubber sweep to seal the bottom frames to keep out spiders, scorpions, etc. And, even though it was replacing an old interior screen door, one Apollo interior door needed custom steel framing added to properly mount inside a steel exterior door frame. Later, however, two doors bowed and one didn't fit tight at the bottom so he had to return and adjust them once. The two out-swings have been exposed to 100 degree heat and 30 degree cold in the last 6 months and no peeling or flaking or distortion. The bronze door color is somewhat mottled and matches our dark brown-black entry door perfectly; however, our decorative door handle hit the Apollo standard handle as drilled preventing complete closure, so we had to reverse the handle/key/latch on the Apollo but it worked out OK.. So far, for the price, we are quite happy with these security doors.

Second time I bought this door. It was not completely straight so luckily my contractor was able to take a large board and press it into shape so it would fit. A less experienced person might have returned it. It makes one wonder if Home Depot is getting "seconds" from First Alert since the price is very reasonable. It's a solid door, powder coated and doesn't rust, can be outfitted with dead bolt. Good visibility thru the door. Small bugs can get thru the mesh but not an issue in coastal southern California.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SED7 A very LOUD door.
Replaced an old security door with this one--looks great but the metal mesh (the actual screen part) vibrates like crazy and makes a terrible racket when you close it--sounds like cymbals crashing (which would be fine if this was Performance Art but hey, it's just a screen door, ya know?) Took about 90 minutes to install and is very sturdy. On the fence about recommending it, but other than the gawd-awful noise, it's fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sirjames600 Very handsome door, with issues
I used to live in a part of the country where steel security screens are ubiquitous. I now live in the NW, with no air conditioning, and I needed something where I could leave my doors open at night to cool the house down but still remain secure. These doors fit that bill. The appearance of the door is great. Looks really good and went up very quickly.
I graded it down on overall quality because when the door is installed, the lag bolts wind up being right in the gap between the door frame and the stud of the rough framing, which means the anchoring is somewhat fragile. I'm considering welding wings onto steel door frame so that I can sink a lag bolt dead center into the studs which will make it so much more secure. However, as a lockable screen door that lets me sleep securely at night, it's just what I need. I figure that if someone wants to breach the door, the racket that would be caused would wake me and give me time to greet them along with Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson.

had to hire some to install the door and then have the paint touched up because when it gets installed the bolts get scraped and don't look good. ned a strong covering over them.
