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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie Beautiful door
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!

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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Eagle127 Cheap..
The guide track is cheap stamped sheetmetal junk. The doors are rough and will require sanding. The doors have no over-center mechanism.. Overpriced..The new Home Depot way.. A piece of 3/4" quarter round,,,,almost 5 bucks.. A 98 cent piece for 5 backs.

We bought these doors for the sunporch. The wood is solid and can be stained or painted. We painted. I am very happy with this purchase. This is a two person installation.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by babymoose bad product support - don't break a window
The product was delivered in great shape but when I went to tap in the floor swivel pin the window just above it shattered. No way this should happen unless there was a structural problem with the frame. When I contacted the manufacturer they would not stand behind the product but would sell me a new panel. I asked if they hand any directions for changing and replacing the window they could email me. Their response was "the windows in these doors can not be replaced". With a little ingenuity I managed to get the window replaced. The little bit of damage that occurred was repairable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JPancho door was as expected
Needed a "french door" (minimize size of door extending in open position) to close off a "sun room" from kitchen, size of opening is ~37x81; this door was best option for the price. Actual door of this product is just less than the 36x80.5 advertized at ~35.5x78.5. With 3/8" x 1/2" foam seal, this adequately provides a good seal door to let in light but keep out the cold/heat (sun room is not centrally conditioned). Would recommend it if you have similar need, just be aware of the little "extra" needed to enclose an opening that measures 36x80.
