          Not a very sturdy design. The door actually flexes making it feel wobbly. It looks ok but wouldn’t recommend.

                Poor Workmanship
                Purchased this door and was disappointed in quality and workmanship. The screen door I received should never got past quality control. Center cross bar not fused to outer rail, causing the door to be bowed in center and melted joints not surfaced.

                  Door looks nice at a glance. Vinyl seems to be pretty solid. I needed to repair the screen as it was not well rolled into the channels. After install, the door isn't even close to square. Top left side is 1/8" from the top door frame. Top right side, is about an inch of space. Yes, the door frame is square. The door is more like a parallelogram than a rectangle.....also as other reviews note, the seceen covers the entire length and width of the door. So you have Iimited places to push it open, you can't screw any hardware thru the screening and if you need to replace the screen, you need to do the whole door. Lastly some of the joints where vinyl meets vinyl is poorly pieced together and you can see multiple gaps in the joints.

                    The assemble was poor. The vinyl frame joints were all off by over 1/8 of an inch. They appear to be melted in place and the ridges of the joints were very visible. I returned it. I would only purchase another vinyl door in-person so I could see the quality of the assembly.

                      poorly assembled.
                      After spending almost $300, I anticipated a will built door. I had 3 joints which where not glued, nor fastened. I really should not have to make a trip to the local hardware store to purchase wood glue to make it functional. I’m awaiting the other joints to fail. Devil is in the details, I hope the manufacure improves their quality!!

                        It's not square!
                        This brand seems very nice I installed the waccamaw solid vinyl screen door it seems durable the hinges are nice Butt! The door was a 32 inch wide by 80 long and the middle of the door was 32 in wide but the top and bottom we're both 31 and a half so it was curved on both sides if you put this in a square hole the margins look really bad I thought well one might be a defect but the second door was exactly the same. I would buy this again but measure it in the store and make sure it's at least somewhat Square.

                          I’m satisfied with this door. It isn’t very sturdy but it was inexpensive. I had to hire someone to hang it. The size was perfect, no trimming necessary. But there’s a lot of drilling and shimming and I certainly couldn’t do it on my own. If you have some skills you will be able to do it in your own. It didn’t stay closed firming until we added the spring from my old door to give it a tight closure..

                          Looks good but over priced and needs support
                          Unless this particular door is not the norm in craftsmanship, it is a bit lacking. I was looking for something decent that wasnt too expensive. It seemed okay in the store. I liked the old style feel to it and my wife approved too. Once installed, we noticed it looked out of square. We found that it sagged from the weight of the door. To square it up we bought 4- 3” L brackets and placed them in the corners. (See photo). This worked very well but the manufacturer should improve the stability or provide the L brackets and screws and lower the price

                            Screen door came as advertised and packing was intact. The screen seems to be locked in tighter than some of the cheaper doors out there as well. The hinges recommended were easy to install and had the springs inside the hinge so there was no need for an additional tension spring, etc. The vinyl is solid and took the screws easily. Waiting for spring and summer to see if there is any major shifting in the shape of the door but I'm very satisfied with purchase as is...
