Rated 4 out of 5Â by DIYoldfart Quite good.
Liked how the door came and the french windows have a plastic over the glass, the door can be finished first, then removed the plastic that looks like it was built right into it at the factory. No fuss, no muss with masking the windows for finishing. Mine seems well made, looks very good, nice wood grains. The only problems were, this is an old house, almost nothing is square and this replaced an odd door of less that 80". Suggest in certain cases such as mine you remove the old door place on top of new door, line of the top and sides and mark all the hinge, door know and latch areas, cut to fit. And it will be a snap to replace.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bumpo Door shrunk and warped after being hung and painted.
Door shrunk and warped ~1" after being hung, primed and painted with two coats of paint. Having paid a carpenter to hang it and a painter to paint it this has NOT been a good experience!

Door is well made. The plastic over the glass makes cleanup easy. Staff brought out doors and loaded them.

I have the 36x80 door. I purchased and installed it myself over a year ago. It is between by kitchen and dining room, which I pass thru several times a day, and I never noticed the etching until I went and looked. Sure enough it is there! But, to me, the etching is not significant enough to notice. I love my door and will purchase 2 more 36x80 for the pocket doorway between my dining room and living room. I dont know from personal experience but maybe on the 30in wide doors the etching is deeper.

Rated 1 out of 5 What's with the glass etching?!?
I bought this standard but very nice door for an office/ den entry. I spoke at length with the sales person and told him that the door would be highly visible in my home.
My handyman installed the door easily and it looked great.
That night I was looking at the door deciding whether to paint or stain when I noticed that on the corner of each of the 15 window panes, the little manufacturer's words that I thought were on the protective plastic were actually etched on the glass!!!
I figured it couldn't be, so I peeled away the plastic on one of the corners and tried to scrape - no no avail! I got glass cleaner and nothing!
You mean to tell me that after all of that, my french door panes have words on them? Who ever heard of that??? And even in a commercial or industrial situation, who would want to see manufacturer's etching on their door?
Is there some way to get it off or do I have to bring it back and pay my handyman again????
