The aluminum blinds for my french doors were more than I planned on spending. With a total for 2 over $500, I expected a top notch product. I received the two over a month ago. One was fine, the other was damaged. The vanes were bent, had grease on them, etc. We put up the one that was in good order and brought the other one back. The replacement arrived within a few days. It looked good at the store. We got it home and discovered that the company had "forgotten" to run the cord to the device that tilts the blinds. I called and spoke to a manager who was very helpful. I requested that I not have to bring the defective one back before they ordered yet another new one. She agreed to that and said that for my inconvenience, they were going to give me a refund of 15% of the one door. That was over a week and a half ago and I've still have not been notified that the new door has arrived. Will this nightmare ever end????

I bought 2 of these blinds today for patio doors in a house that I "inherited". My son helped me install them and the only problem we had was getting the plugs out of screw holes in the door. Once we figured an easy way to do that, the blinds went up fast! The red lock button located on the inside of the blind didnt get removed from our first attempt and we had to take the door down after that, all was well and those two things are the reasons I didnt give 100% rating on installation but really it was our fault and not the product.As for value, Im always looking for bargains and they were a little pricey but you get what you pay for! The blinds are beautiful and give the room a clean finished look.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack This was a really good design for mounting blinds external to a door.
The product was very easy to install and eliminated blinds flopping on the outside of the door. The alternative was to purchase doors with blinds between the glass which reduces the insulation of the door.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by amanda Doesn't work the quite the way you hope.
The unit is great in concept, rather easy to install, but the ability to open and close the blades is extremely limited. I was happy with the unit but very disappointed with blade adjustment. Additionally if you raise or lower the blades they either don't go down all the way or don't lay flat on top. After some time the stayed level and went all the way down, I have raised them since.
Quality is OK, they just need to work out some of the irritating bugs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CedarLodge Wrong size
The 27 x 66 flush mount would not work, but there was not the same size in raised frame. I don't understand why. Still trying to resolve it with our door manufacturer. ODL, manufacturer of the blinds, was not much help.
However, I do love the product. I have seen it on a vacation home on 3 total doors.

I just completed installing 6 of the 27 x 66 Add On Blind for Flush Frame Doors. One of the blinds had to be returned. The box had been opened and the blind was damaged and parts, packaging material and instructions were missing. Home Depot handled the return very well but it was still an un-needed hassle. Four of the blinds required minor repairs before installation. The problems were not shipping related as the boxes arrived in near pristine condition. Parts were poorly packed by the manufacturer or there was a lack of quality control before shipping. Fortunately I was able to make repairs on site but I would not have been able to do so without having a working blind on hand to use as a model. Once installed the blinds worked as advertised but I would not purchase again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sakzpl Excellent sun coverage on our French Door
Amazing how easy and quick this enclosed blind was to install! We put it on our French Door that had major sun exposure in our family room. What a great difference it made on how much light we did not want in thru the door! Also added an excellent cooling factor in our large family room. I am sure with the great quality of this blind it will also work great in the winter! Dogs can jump on it without tearing up the aluminum blinds inside the door!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by handyman Of the 3 blinds ordered, two had to be returned due to missing or broken pieces. The replacements seemed to be of less quali
The rrestocked items seemed to be of lesser quality than the original. Store was very cooperative with the return.
