Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by victimoffrozenpipes Best Purchase, Great Door and Service
We had this door installed for our basement walk-out. Going through Home Depot was easy, efficient and the sub-contractor working for HD who installed the door was excellent. We are very pleased with the overall process, the price was good and the finished, installed door is great. We chose to have it installed with the weather-proof, maintenance-free trim called "AZAK". It cost a bit more, but totally worth it. If you think going through HD is not as cool or as "good" as going through a specialized window dealer or company that specializes in that, think again. All said and done it cost a little more than $1000 for the door, install and upgrades on the trim,. Done in a week, done right and if we have a problem down the road we know HD will be there to back it up. For us, that's worth a lot. The door is sealed well, looks great and we're DONE! Boom!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by goobogus great door for the price
All in all it seems to be a good door, keep in mind I have only had it a week. It looks wonderful and compared to what I had previously it is a great improvement. The installation was relatively easy, about 3 hours. There is some tweeking that has to be done (as with about any door) to get the doors to open and close smoothly. The top of the doors were off by about an eighth of an inch but the review that recommended changing the hinge screws WORKED LIKE A DREAM. I simply installed longer screws in the top and middle hinges and it opened and closed smoothly. I am very happy with the door and the price was within my budget.

Installed by long time contractor. The seals leaked 3 hours later after 1st extremely light mist. TJeldwen Tech out 2X and recreated the problem...still leaks 5 months later and the company will not replace and stand by their warranty! Was told over the phone it is rated ZERO for wind and water....ummm, then why are you selling this as an exterior door!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ramger31 It's all about installation
That being said all framed openings are not true level and plumb bowed floors , jacks , and headers so that's why some doors have to be re worked as far as rottiing only primed needs to be painted and caulked right away it's best to be capped in alluminum and caulked that goes for any door by any company these doors are just fine so hopefully the door gets installed right it's all about installation

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by miltoney Didn't even last five years
We didn't even get five years out of the door before the frame rotted out. I partly blame myself, I should have known better than to install a wood frame door where it would be in contact with moisture. The door functioned well, but was not energy efficient. A lot of air passed through the door, we had to cover it in sheet plastic in the winter. I am replacing it with a composite slider that will not rot. Live and learn...

My wife and I bought this to replace our old sliding glass door. It's a lot more energy efficient, and we noticed it holding a lot more heat in our dining room this winter.
We chose to save some money and install it ourselves. For those who wish to do so as well, be aware that the door comes with brick moulding attached. We had to remove the molding and then re-attach it after installation because it got in the way of our siding, preventing us from fully sliding the door into position.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cooper Very poor quality control.
We knew that this was a cheap door when we purchased it but found out that the quality was disgusting! The installation was not bad until we could not get the doors to work. The fixed side would line up great but the swinging side would hit the stationary door at the top. (By about 1/8") After studying the situation, I realized that the hinges on the swinging door were not mortised in properly, big gap at the top and proper gap at the bottom. I re-cut the mortises for the middle and top hinges and then the doors would work as they should. The hinge screws are way too short to do the job and I found that almost 1/2 of them were stripped from the factory. I replaced the screws with proper sized screws so that the hinges won't pull out in use. This product is an embarrassment to American manufacturing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixit A good value in cheap doors--but don't trust the page description
Other than being heavy and cosmetically pre-abused by the depot (as many large, heavy items seem to be there), the door is very solid and was very easy to install.
Door loses points for having insufficient rough opening data on the site and having the incorrect instruction PDF linked. I suggest you measure the actual frame and add your rough gaps before building the opening. I also suggest you pay attention to the sill pan and screwing requirements. This door takes 6 screws through the hinges to mount it--4 of those are included (why not all 6?).
Generally speaking, once it's installed, it functions well and looks decent for my shed. It would be nice to have a little more mounting points and have the passive door latch holes pre-drilled at the top and bottom, but that's not a big deal.
I'd use one again for another shed or outbuilding. You can't beat the price for what you get.
