The doors work great and look good with one exception and installed with One important exception.
The tool to install the security screws was missing from the kit. Still trying to finish the installation.
Also one of the doors had a damaged section at the bottom of the door. It was a big hassle to return it and since it was a the bottom itis not as obvious. Funny think is that there was a QC inspection sticker right on the dent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 19254 Cottage Rose Security Screen Doors
Was not able to install due to the type of door set up. I thought that I could move the door handle to the outside left side of the door when installing as the description stated that the doors were reversable however it was reversable as long as you kept the door handle as an inside door. Either on the left or right side, just not able to move it to the outside door. Home Depot has a great return policy, I was able to return with no questions asked.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SpanMan Preparation is the tough part
The double security door arrive and I noted quite a few places where the paint chipped off. This was easily fixed since it was white paint and matched rustolium white enamel spray paint. I removed the edge mouldings from the siding and door jam noting there was a different elevation that would need to be corrected before installing the door so it would be a level surface for mounting. Compounding the problem was the two locking pins for the fixed side of the door. The is an upper and lower 1/2 inch pin that are made so the fixed side can be opened for cleaning or whatever. Problem being that the pin assembly for the top was higher than the top of the door which required a cut out for the door to fit properly. I needed to use a hacksaw to cut 1 inch off the pin for it to fit just right. When the upper pin is secured it is behind the bar assembly so it is very secure, however the lower pin does not have the bar to prevent it being pulled out so I drilled it through the door threshold (which did not get into wood meat because it is too close to the door), so I added a 1 inch cedar board below the door to hide the issue and give the door some security. It was a day long job but after spot painting the door (again) I am very happy with the product. Important to note... If you get white or black doors, paint shouldn't be a problem, matching the off colors may be. though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Nice door after problem diagnosed
Nice door -- solidly built and looks good. No chips in the enamel. However the top cross bar was very slightly bowed, which prevented the doors from closing. The problem was solved by first installing the two sides, then inserting the top bar, and THEN getting one our heftier installers to pull down on the bar while the other drilled an extra screw into the jamb to hold the bar in place. Installation is definitely a two person job. The manufacturer needs to put two more screw holes closer to the center of the door as well as making sure the cross bar is absolutely straight. This door also ships in two boxes -- make sure that the employees bring you both if you have this shipped to the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WileECoyote The doors look great installed
I have had my own home repair business for 14 years now, been in the trades for 36 years total, I have installed a lot of items and in comparison, installing these doors was fairly easy, they are heavy so be prepared, If you are some what handy with tools and follow the instructions you should be fine installing these doors.
This was my first time installing a security door set, the install went good, I had to trim off the 2 (3/16"X1/4" flat stock) tabs that were longer than the frame, they were catty-corner from each other and were in the way, the one on the bottom was in the way to install the door level as I installed a 2"X4"s to the face of the house as a kicker and to frame in the doors, other than that the install wasn't bad, the doors look great.
I purchased 6= 3/16" X 2 1/2" lag bolts and used them to install and align the doors, after everything was done I switched out the lags (1 at a time) for the one way lag screws that came with the doors, i would highly recommend doing this as it will make adjusting door gaps much easier.
I did notice that the powder coat finnish scratches off pretty easily, I had grabbed a can of touch up paint when I picked up the doors, Im glad I had the foresight getting the extra lag bolts and paint.
Hope this helps

This Security Door is a great addition to my house, looks good and easy to install. One door was warped and we did a weather strip quick fix.
My brother and I are proud of our install work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by davidrlin Do not buy it
The cottage rose double security doors worthless to buy, please don't buy it. It's junk, very poor quality even part of paint already chipped off when I had it, and both doors bended in different ways, it not from handling but how they built it. It took me lots extra time to bend it and sand it to fit, and the paintings more chipping off when do more on the door. However, it's a poor door, just good for scare away thief!
