There is a big price difference between the painted and the primed. How well will the paint hold up if I spray paint the door myself? thanks.
Asked by: cmar
I originally was going to spend the extra money to get the powder coated doors. However, there were too many negative customer reviews that the powder coat was not all that durable, and my doors would be subjected to ice and slabs of snow falling from my roof. I bought the primed ones instead, and prior to assembly and installation, I painted everything (with a brush). One coat on the interior, and two coats on the exterior. After one winter I have a handful of spots that could use a touch up, and I'm pleased with my decision.

Asked by: steve
It includes everything (doors, sides, header, footer, handle, hardware, 2 hydraulic cylinders to assist opening/closing the doors, and assembly instructions). It comes unassembled, strapped flat down on an oversized pallet.

Classic Series 55 in. x 72 in. Primed Steel Cellar Door is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid steel doors I have not yet installed the doors and am responding only because Home depot keeps e-mailing me. The kit is complete.I also bought the 12" extensions. I am pre-painting all the parts to maximize rust protection and noticed that there is a recommendation for paint in the instructions. I used an oil based farm implement paint from Tractor Supply instead with a catalyst hardener. I ordered the part on-line for store delivery and when I saw the packaging I was concerned it had come apart in shipping but in fact that is the way they ship it and all the parts were there and well protected. This is a heavy door, shipping weight was 200 Lb so be prepared when you pick it up. Also pay attention to some caulking requirement between the pieces when you assemble the frame. I rated the door at less than five stars regarding value because of course after I bought mine and started painting it went on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I expected but not what the Home Depot expected I ordered this bulk head online after visiting the store. I spoke with three people, in-store, at the contractor's service desk who all claimed, as well as another staff member elsewhere in the store, that this would come pre-assembled and on a pallet requiring a pickup truck or delivery. It actually comes not assembled and it is shrink-wrapped as I expected. So I had to return the Home Depot's pick-up truck, free of charge, once I saw them wheel out the order. This is a two person job to install. You need the second set of hands to help hold the pieces together as well as lift it to mount it over the opening. Overall the material seems to be very durable and sound construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice product. Doors open with ease. Looks good installed Ordered online, shipped to local store. Wasn't completely boxed, so had to be taken apart and loaded. Although everything seemed to be in good shape. Went together easily, just had trouble leveling the side on a very old base. But it all came together and looks very nice. We bought the primed product and painted gray. Wished that I had bought the already powdercoated gray product.
