Rated 5 out of 5Â by Marhaba This door is unique and well built. FSC certified means the wood was harvested sustainably (no clearcutting)
I love this door. I get tons of compliments and it is not the usual boring half moon windowed door or a boring leaded glass door that all the McMansions have around here. My kids love the speakeasy door and answer the door by opening it first.
The leverset and deadbolt I bought matches the door very well. It is a Weslock7140N-7571
I was looking for a FSC certified door which indicates the wood was harvested sustainably (no clearcutting of rainforest). I wanted to lessen my potential impact on endangered/threatened animals. There is a similar door sold at Home Depot that is made in the Far East and one does not know how the wood was harvested.
The door itself is made of solid wood, no veneers or softwood core. When you shut the door it gives a substantial thud.
The finish is nice, but I have to admit I saw some of these doors in stock at HD that had the clear finish peeling in places. The hinges, threshold, sweep and gaskets are all top quality.
I never installed a door before, but this one went in with minimal problems. I did it all myself. Of course I did a lot of research and watched videos. The included instructions helped a lot too. The only tip I would have is if you use expanding foam to seal the gaps between door and frame, be sure to mask off the door and not use too much foam. Even the minimally expanding type of foam will come out of cracks and get on the finish if you are not careful. The foam does scrape off, but does dissolve the clearcoat. I had to restain those areas with mahogany colored stain, which matched well.
The Main Door company has good customer service and answered many questions before I purchased this door. I subscribed to their Facebook page and learned that they are now making interior doors. I will purchase one to replace the closet door that is adjacent to my entry door. They should match well.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JN57 Solid, beautiful door
Beautifully crafted door. Needed to buy a matching door jamb extender because of the depth of the opening, but I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Very heavy, very solid.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by flyer Really Poor Warranty
Door looks good but seal isn't as good near the bottom as it is at the top. It says if you install a storm door it voids the warranty of the door. The door I took out had a storm door on it for 39 years without warping. The warranty is only good for 1 year from date of purchase. Sounds like they don't have much faith in their product. I would not recommend this product or the company that builds them to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Venicia Great door except for distress slash marks
We loved this door on line and ordered one from the store. When we opened it at home, we saw the slash marks that count as "distressed" and it was too late to return it as the installer was here. Those slash marks don't show on line. We would not have bought the door if we knew about the slash marks. They cheapen what is a beautiful door otherwise. Be sure to see the full door in person before buying it. Maybe the slash marks won't bother you. It's a good, solid Spanish-style door and doesn't need the distress slashes.
