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 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.

I bought these doors for my kitchen. I used these bi-fold doors as the french doors. They are great and solid.

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 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.

Great doors. They look beautiful and they are keeping the heat where I want it. Would order again and would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BlueRiband Nice compromise for door replacement
I wanted to restore a door, removed decades ago, to a passage between my entrance hall and dining area. Building from scratch requires advanced woodworking skills that I don’t have and a commissioned build is prohibitively expensive. So I bought the 30x80 size and added 2 and ¼ inches at the bottom to fit the frame height. I didn’t use the track hardware but separated the two panels, added to the bottom rails, and mortised for the hinges to lie flush to attach them to the steel door jamb. The stiles are much too marrow for a typical cylinder mechanism so I used magnetic catches at the top on the inside. Dummy levers were added for appearance and I used a brand of hardware that offers roses in the 1.5in diameter. (Standard door knob roses are much too wide to fit.)
“Ease of installation” I put at a 3 only because I had to give it some rating, but it’s not accurate since my adaptation didn’t use the manufacturer’s hardware and they never intended them to be used like this.
I’m very pleased with the solid, sturdy feel and appearance of the doors. One positive shipping note – that might at first seem trivial – is that the doors arrived with plastic film on both sides of each glass pane. This saves a lot of work in not having to painstakingly tape the edges on 40 sides of glass before staining or painting. But most importantly the glass is protected and stabilized during the installation handling. I’m working alone and I’m not Wonder Woman and much appreciated this during all the cumbersome handling.
If anyone might be thinking of doing the same thing, the advice I would give is to examine the specs and plan out the project – including precisely what hardware you will use - before making a purchase. There is no lock rail. I would strongly advise against any deep mortising of the stiles they are very narrow and doing so would seriously compromise their integrity – remember that they have to support all of those glass panes.

This door requires sanding with 220 grit paper. It is a long process due to number of stiles, but ultimately rewarding in a superior paint or stain finish. Plastic film over glass make painting or staining easy. Have a second person to make hanging easier.
