Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JPO Screen Door
Believe the reviews- this screen door is utter trash. It is not the same quality as the ones sold in the store. The frame is made of glued 10" sections of pine that don't even look straight. I returned it and special ordered a door at the store- which was 1/3 the cost! Home Depot should not be selling this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by eng8b24 hung it anyway
The door's design is fine---looks good on-line---but it is really a piece of garbage. None of the parts actually fit together and where the stiles and rails meet, they aren't flush. The wood is sanded, but this kind of thing really ought to be sanded after assembly. Looks like Timberline has cut too many corners to save money. The screen part was very difficult to remove for painting, like they had sharpened the router bit too many times and it wasn't cutting a wide enough dado. Some of the finger-jointed lumber had tear-outs that required filling before paint. The lock rail dowel joints aren't glued. There is a finger joint on one of the stiles that is 3'' from one end---right at the dowel joint. The screen frame is segmented aluminum interrupted with plastic inserts with screw holes. This is not a bad idea, but when the screen is removed for painting it becomes really fragile. Also, the aluminum parts look like they were cut with a skill saw---pretty rough. I wanted to get the door hung and didn't mind doing a little work on it to get the job done. Plus, I really didn't want to go through the process of returning it. You should find someone else to provide your screen doors. Timberline is a loser. Easy to install but time consuming with all the prep and filling

Good quality, well made door, delivered in excellent shape in the alloted shipment time. Screen is easily removable for priming and painting. Highly recommended!

As several other reviewers have noted, the stock on this is all finger-jointed; this is no problem if you want to paint it. However you will have to remove the screen-tight style screen. These are not really meant to come out and go back in easily, but the side channels are in several segmdnts, and you might be able to get the screen out and back in. I couldn't., and so had to remove the long, rubber gasket that holds the screen in. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get it back in using the original screen, and will have to buy another sheet, press it in and cut it down. Since the door is clearly meant to be painted, why not ship with the screen parts separate and let the buyer assemble them? After all, if I can size and hang a door and put a latch on it, I can probably manage to press in a screen.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kdm O.K. for the value
The doors were made of pieces of wood put together and were not consistently the same size . That required adjustment on four doors to get them to fit. They look good from afar ,but will not take any excessive hard use by families or animals.

Purchased two of these doors for my house. Liked the appearance. They both are well out of the weather under porches. Installed front one first. It was warped almost one quarter inch but decided to live with it. One for the back was also warped. After cutting the bottom and installing the hardware there appeared to be an opening across the top that looked like the door was drooping about three quarters of an inch. Both sides fit evenly. Upon closer inspection the door is what my carpenter called "jacked". Dad the engineer would say skewed. Apparently when the door was laid on something to router the screen fitting the thing was not square. It is obvious that is the case since the upper part of the door is about three quarters narrower on one side than the other. RECOMMEND VERY CLOSE INSPECTION OR PURCHASE SOMETHING ELSE. If I had not already cut it I would have returned it.
