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!

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 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.

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.

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

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by submarine Excellent 36 inch folding door but pathetic, cheap hardware
The $299 double folding door was excellent, very good value, but the cheap inartfully designed hardware was shameful. It is the very same cheap hardware that is attached to lighter folding doors I installed several years ago in the laundry area. Specifically, the hardware is poorly designed for this heavier and well constructed folding door in the following ways:
(1) the adjustable upper pivot bracket should be at least one inch longer because in the present short profile the tightening screw is difficult to turn with a hand screw driver or an battery driver. The tightening screw is too close to the edge of the door. Also,the single tightening screw should be more substantial and better designed. Discard this hardware unit.
(2) The top guide rail is a flimsy unit similar to some kind of heavier cardboard. Not suitable for this heavy door. The edges that prevent the roller guide from being disrailed is not sufficiently pronounced. Make the curled portion really enclose the roller guide.
(3) The lower pivot bracket is too horizonally short. This is not a glaring insufficiency but it should be longer and perhaps be attached to the floor with two not just one screw.
(4) The plastic portion of the roller guide broke off in the bored hole at the top of the door and I had to make a substitute,
Thus, this sorry grouping of hardware is ill fashioned for this heavy door. Use it on a lighter one but it should not be part of the purchase price of this $ 299 door.
