Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OCer Rusted in less than a year
It took forever to get the security door delivered from Home Depot (white solstice). We paid for the special order on Sept 8 2013, but they first delivered a door that had fallen off the truck and frame was bent in the corner. On November 26 2013 I finally took delivery of our door (but I think it was the same that they repackaged). So we had it installed in December 2013. I selected a door with a powder coating because it should provide complete protection (no pinhole) and should never peel off for years. However, it took less than 1 year to start seeing rusty spots, and now in January 2015 (1 year after installation) there are rusty spots everywhere and the coating is peeling off and falling on the entrance carpet. This is obviously a manufacturing problem, and I am going to try the manufacturer warranty. The original cost was $410. So my recommendation is STAY AWAY.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lcab Great look, bad parts
I bought this door because the look was great and matched my house perfectly. I get compliments on the door all the time at how well it matches my modern home. For the price this unique design seemed like a great choice. There are a few problems, however. First, the powder coat scratches off easily and rusts quick, meaning wherever a screw driver is used bright orange rust will soon appear. Second, the lock set is terrible. This is, unfortunately, the biggest drawback and overshadows the design. There is a plastic part among the metal linkage that will eventually snap and render the door handle useless. This happened to me after 3 months of normal door usage - the handle started to bend to a more downward position and eventually snapped and could spin freely. Ordering a replacement lock set is where I read the reviews about the problems exactly the same as mine. Buyers should know, up front at the original door purchase, the problems with the door handle. I don't think there is another part that will fit in this door - you're stuck rebuying the $80 part every 6-12 months, unless you're very gentle with your security door, which seems oxymoronic.

If you live near the beach, do not buy this door. Rust began showing up after a few weeks. Three months later, the powder coating of the edges peeled off. Five month later, the front powder coating peeling off. Six months later, rust everwhere ... a total mess! Extremely disappointed ... took me a while to save up for this door.

Great product, that was ordered online with such ease!
Be sure to correctly measure your frame where the door will be installed! We ran into a little problem with fitting the door at first but had make some very minor adjustments which turned out well. Overall, this security door was good investment and a overall good buy!

Hinges are already attached to a side frame; that's nice. Installed it with no problems. But, make sure you measure 4 times before you drill holes. Comes with one-way screws, which won't come out once you start. Have to buy a one-way drill bit $14. Not sure what function the bottom bar has, there are no pre-drilled holes in the frame for this. It's steel, not aluminum like the doors on Unique Homes' website.
