Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by errol44 A Great Door For the Price
The door is very well made, well packaged, and looks great when hung. We bought this to use as a door to our commode to replace a "saloon door." We stained it, put "rice paper" film on the glass panes, and added oriental style pulls and it came out great. One thing I will say is that the wood did not take the stain well on our first try. We then tested several mixtures as wood conditioner, including Minwax's commercial brand. But what worked best for us was a mix of vegetable oil and white vinegar... the wood took the stain beautifully. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

These doors are beautifully made and look spectacular in my home. We were looking for a rustic barn look but needed light to filter from one room to the next. We stained them with Minwax in color special Walnut and achieved the look we wanted. Unfortunately, upon opening the box, we realized it brought the wronfg size track. We had hired someone to install the doors for us and wasted his time and our money for the day. The company over nighted one but was frustrating to have to wait another week for my contractor to be available.
Home Depot service was impeccable but Pinecroft gets a big fat Zero on this one!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Good door but pay up for painted door if you want it white
Solid attractive door. In some corners there was separation of the wood frame I needed to repair with wood filler, but almost to be expected.
If you want a white door, pay up the additional $100 to get it painted (I am assuming it is a well-done job). It took me over 6 hours to sand, tack cloth, prime, and carefully paint this sucker--20 frames per side, so a total of 40 window frames to paint, and with 2 coats (I should be putting on a 3d but cannot bear to), 80 frames to paint. Then, there is the careful razoring around each frame and removing the film from the glass. Now, touch up. I painted it white, and wish I paid up for the painted door. Installation was a breeze.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pcm60 Very pricey and very soft wood
I didn't use them as bifold doors but rather as an architectural detail on either side of a large entryway from main hallway into living room, think sidelights without a door between them. They are bare wood and needed to be prepped and sanded like you would with any bare wood project. I found the wood scratches very easily, so I primed, sanded, primed, sanded, painted, sanded, painted, light sanding final top coat. So all in all there are five coats of paint, 2 primer and 3 of the final color. They look beautiful for what I used them for however the film covering the glass so painting is easier were a real bear to get off x 40! I say I would recommend this product as it is what I needed and if I could have found old used one at a salvage I would have preferred that but I couldn't. I also bought French doors for the entryway from living room into dining room and these bifolds were almost the same price as the prehung French doors. So I stand by they are a bit pricey all things considered.

I'm a woman in my late 50's and I installed this myself. Took me nearly 2 hours because I didn't quite know what I was doing and I wanted it perfect, and the door is well-built and heavy, but my point is it can be done. I love the quality of the door, the protective plastic over the glass panels to make painting easier, and the light that now comes thru from my laundry room. I'm super happy with this purchase. It replaced a cheap solid bifold door, so now this area looks so much more dramatic. Love it!

I bought these for use as 2 separate doors (french doors), not bifolds. The general quality of construction was acceptable. Doors and glass all arrived in good shape. Several hinges were misaligned and missing screws, but that didn't matter as I removed all of them. Many of the horizontal mullions had big gaps (up to 1/8th ") where they met the vertical frame members so that I had to fill them before putting on the finish. Plastic wrap on the glass was difficult to remove (needed a razor blade) as it was applied over each whole pane of glass before it was installed in the door - they didn't just peel off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 808inVa Great door purchase
Hope they can find an easier way yo remove the plastic film coating on the windows. I installed 2 double-fold sets, so I had to remove 80 films...wow, what a task.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by diycoupletx Just ok
Bought 2 sets of these doors and 2 sets of narrower doors to make 8 total panels. Unhinged them and re-paired them together to make 2 sets of 4 double folding doors for 2 doorways. 3 panels were warped (not flat when laid down on the floor) so we had to work to fix. Even within 1 panel, it seems different types of pine were used for the door (sides are separate pieces from the tops, bottom panels and the pane dividers), so when finishing/staining them, they absorbed the stain differently. Took a lot of work to "even" them out by varying amounts of stain used. It was a TON of work. Been working on them a month and still not done. If you were painting them it would be much easier. Would not buy again due to amount of work, even though the price was good.
