Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chandra Hard to spend more money on product
Purchasing this product has created problems I've never imagined having; I am trying to purchase a glass insert for the door and neither Home Depot nor the manufacturer have been helpful in how to get this accomplished. Its been 10 days, two trips to the store, to calls to the online rep, two calls to Unique Home Design, and guess what, I still can not purchase a glass insert that cost almost as much as the door. I would not recommend the purchase of this product because Unique Home Design is not interested in working with the customer or ensuring that the customer is satisfied. I'm tired and right now I am thinking RETURN!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KarenW Floridians- beware!! Rusted extremely quickly
This is actually a very nice looking door from far away, but after less than 6 months, it started rusting in several spots and the strips of coating started peeling. Installation was very difficult, but that might have had more to do with our opening, so some build out had to be done in order for us to still be able to use this door. All in all, I wouldn't recommend it here in Florida, it's just not able to take the elements.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cambanet Nice looking door, but there things you need to watch out for.
The door took more than a week to get delivered to the store.
But at home I've discovered 2 problems: it was wrong color and the glass insert was damaged. I've decided to install it anyway, didn't want to pay for getting it back to the store and wait 2 more weeks.
Later I've repainted my second door to match the color of this door. Also I've called Home depot customer service about the glass and in 3 weeks I've got a new glass panel.
During installation turned out that I need a special tool to drive one way screws that hold door frame. My installer didn't have it so he installed some normal screws instead.
Later I've replaced them one by one and screwed in one-way screws using a large flat screwdriver. It took a while but this way it's much safer.
The door looks nice and made it unnecessary to use intercom, I just open the wooden inner door and through glass can see who's ringing.
The door is good quality, made of heavy steel and tampered glass is thick and heavy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SSPhoenix The good, the bad and the ugly
The door is actually great, good construction and has a nice metal plate to keep someone from cutting the screen part and accessing the knob. Warning: look at the questions asked for this product. You will see half talk about needing new handle hardware. The hardware that sells with this unit is horrible!! Cheap and worthless. I have gone through 2 sets myself, both times locking my self in because either the handle breaks or the latch on the handle gets stuck. Worthless. If you buy this door.. which is actually very good, do NOT buy the nickel hardware the comes with it. Find some other brand that will hold up to use. The technician at Home Depot says they are junk and the most common question / complaint is that someone is looking to replace the hardware.

Very nice looking sturdy. My install went great. I get plenty of compliments from my neighbors and no one has this door. Wish it had matching hand rails

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ruth48 for the price it's a nice sturdy door
after comparison shopping this is the door I selected because it was a different look (it's not a cookie cutter look) and it offered the tempered glass,steel frame, and lock, which is added extra security to me after a recent breakin. I actually got in installed by someone else, and it took them awhile (about 2.5 hours), so really can't rate the ease of installation.
It acutally looks nice on the front door, lets hope my Homeowners Association lets me keep it in place!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NoDIYagain Got to be an easier way.
The door design is beautiful. The metal material very thin. Had to make a lot of alterations so that door could open smoothly. Not enough room to put up a door closer, will try to put one up at the top if a small door closer can be found. Did not run into a problem with lock but had to turn it 360 degrees twice in order for deadbolt to be catch. I can see having to replace this door in a couple of years. Be very careful before using the one way screw because removing them can take forever and destroys the screw in the process.
