Rated 3 out of 5Â by BadDiver Powder Coat --- Door covered in rust!
We purchased this security door in July of 2012. Because we live 1/2 mile from the beach we were careful to purchase a powder-coated door, in hopes of avoiding ending up with a rusty door. We live on the 4th floor of our complex, and the door is installed on an easterly facing door set well back into the alcove, where it receives no direct rain. Within a few months spots of rust began to appear, which we quickly touched up with a rustoleum paint. Now less than 2 years later, a large portion of the door is covered in rust, forcing us to have to re-paint the entire door. Not happy that in such a short time the door is awful to look at.
Regarding the installation, we paid to have the Home Depot installer put in the door, which he did quite quickly. However, it never really fit quite right, with a large gap at the top and on the sides, which we have tried to remedy by installing foam tape to make it fit a little better and not rattle so much when closing.
Other than that, in the beginning the door was quite attractive and sturdy, giving us an extra level of protection and the ability to have the breeze blow through. Seems like it should have resisted the rust for more than just a little over a year, though.
So ... if you live in a humid environment or anywhere near the coast --- beware. I would not recommend this door (unless you don't mind re-painting it every year).

pins that hold screen to door frame / not enough so the door screen flexes and bangs the door frame making noise like some one is at the door maybe trying to break in.

Looks good from the outside. People are unable to see in once I open my door so it serves well with privacy. There was a little warping which requires you to push at the top while you are unlocking it. I bought a much cheaper one for my back door and have no warping issue so a little frustrating. Overall, very pleased.
