Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VTAIL Not what we were expecting.
The doors are well built and heavy. The main problem is that there is a lot of gap/space between the doors when spaced out in the opening. We have a 48" wide opening so ordered two 24" doors, but there is at least a 1/2 gap on each side between the door and the opening frame. That's not so bad as the 1.5" gap at the bottom and the ugly plate that had to be screwed to the floor. It comes with a piece of oak trim that is supposed to go all the way across the floor, but we have carpeting there, so I had to cut the piece of oak down to about 2.5", then cut a piece of carpeting out, then place that piece of oak down and the bottom plate on top of it and screw the whole thing down with long screws (not provided). It looks really ugly. So I took a couple pieces of carpet that are close to a match to our carpet, cut some little rectangles with a slot, then placed that over the metal bottom bracket. It looks much better now, but not as nice as the door it replaced. It also didn't come with any instructions. I had to call Home Depot, they did some homework and found a video on-line that was pretty good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JT Awesome Bi-Fold Door!
I highly, highly recommend this door! I was in need of a bi-fold door for a small room and also needed a mirror so I thought I'd try to combine the two. I've never purchased this kind of door before so I relied heavily on photos, specs and customer reviews. Even with this research, when I received the door I was so surprised and impressed with its quality! It is awesome and is obviously built to last. It was also easy to install. Please note: My door was installed by one, physically fit, mechanically-inclined person and it turned out perfectly. However, some may want two people during installation simply because of the weight of the door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DDC Very nice doors. Assembly instructions need to be improved.
I installed three of the 24 x 80 bifold mirror doors by myself. They are indeed quite heavy, so I do recommend having an assistant to help you position the door during installation.
One thing to be aware of up front is that there is an oak threshold ("saddle") that goes at the base of the opening. This piece should be stained before you begin assembly.
One advantage of this design is that the wooden "saddle" is much easier on your feet than a metal track that other doors use. Since the saddle is not used as a track, it is flat on top. In fact, I fail to see why you could not simply cut off the portion of this saddle that is not actually supporting the door as long as the part that remains is very well fastened to the floor.
In the instructions, there are a few problems. First, the list of hardware identifies each item with a letter. Unfortunately, the instructions do not match the letters in the list. This can be confusing, but the images should allow you to figure out what they really intend.
In step 4, the instructions are very confusing. There is a metal plate to be attached to the oak saddle. In the directions, they state "slotted holes in plate go in closet door". Since you are being told to screw the plate into the oak saddle that will eventually be attached to the floor, this statement is totally incomprehensible. I now believe that what they meant to say is that the slots should be on the side of the saddle toward the closet. I had the piece backward such that when the door was fully assembled, the door angled inward at the bottom. I then realized that the metal floor plate was backward, so I had to take the door down and reverse the plate.
Step 15 instructs you to install a door-to-wall aligner.This part was not provided with my doors and I do not see why it would be needed anyway.
Note that the hardware required to fasten the saddle to the floor is not included. If you are installing this product over a floating wood floor, beware that you should not nail or screw it directly through to the floating wood floor and sub-floor. If you do this, you will fix the floating floor in place and if the floor shifts, gaps may open up. The solution is to drill larger holes in the floating floor and then use steel washers stacked up slightly higher than the floor and screw the saddle into the sub floor through the washers. This is virtually impossible to do if you follow the instructions provided which tell you to fast down the saddle only after completing installation. I fully assembled the door and made note of the final position of the saddle, then I removed the door and screwed down the saddle using the procedure described. I then re-installed the door. This worked out very well. Since I now had confidence in placing the saddle, I was able to install the next two doors without the pre-installation. I simply attached the saddle to the floor right at the start.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GetErDone Bad design
The oak saddle is a bad design feature that makes installation difficult. Other bi-fold doors that I have installed use a simple bracket to hold the bottom pivot. After I ordered this bi-fold mirror door, I went to the HD web site and downloaded the installation instructions. Immediately, I saw a problem in fastening the saddle (step 14) to my ceramic-tile floor. How was I supposed to get construction adhesive under the saddle with the 65-pound door precisely aligned on top of the saddle? So I went to the Window & Door expert at HD. After he studied the instructions for many minutes, he suggested that I follow the instructions up to step 14. When everything was aligned properly, put masking tape around all edges of the saddle on the floor. Then remove the door, apply construction adhesive to the saddle, and reinstall it inside the tape markings. I had to wait two days for the construction adhesive to set/cure to the ceramic tile. In step 4, do not tighten the hex-head screws until the door is properly aligned. At that point you will also need an open end wrench that is not in the tool list. I also needed a hammer, a flat-end screwdriver, and a wooden rod to pry the door into proper alignment. You will also need an assistant to help align the door while you are on the floor aligning the adjusting bolt into the cup of the metal floor plate (step 11). You may want to paint the oak saddle. It is a hindrance to keeping the floor clean. After the installation was complete, the bi-fold mirror door works great. My wife loves it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ddelu Excellent bi-fold closet door
This was by far one of the best made mirrored closet doors I've ever seen. It replaced our 24 year old lightweight aluminum bi-fold doors which were very flimsy and starting to show their age. These solid core doors were quite heavy but seemed very balanced and easy to use once installed. Very classy looking and well made. Highly recommended closet door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RD Nice appearance but not so good door material
Special order web only. One of the panels had a cracked mirror on it. The vendor does not send replacement parts so I had to return it and buy it again. Since there is a chance the next one could be damaged, I am waiting for the second set to arrive before returning the broken part. Yes I had to pay for the second one too but will be getting back the money for one of the orders. The door is basically made of glued together saw dust so the quality is average. It is also very heavy. Be very careful to not strip out the threads installing the pivot parts on the door panels. It actually comes as 2 separate 2 foot doors and a third box with the 4 foot track and floor piece. That leaves the 2 foot tracks as useless material. You also get twice the hardware because the 4 foot track also comes with it. Easy to install and does look pretty good. I just had to downgrade it for my inconvenience of this stupid process of getting a replacement door. Be sure to unwrap it at the store and inspect it before taking it home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosie One of my best choices
Other than the doors being heavy when carrying up to the second floor installation went well and the final product looks wonderful. The folding doors were critical for the organizer with the drawers in the middle of the closet.
