Bad hardware
Bought this door today and it should have taken me 15 minutes to take the old one down and put this one up. The screws look nice , but as soon as you use them the head strips, they were terrible. Ended up having to use pliers to get several of them out that would not go in any further.

The screen was torn in multiple places near the spline. It will need to have a new screen installed (Home Depot gave me a 10% discount to help pay for the new screen).

Purchased this product and had them professionally installed on our new casita. They looked great and we were very pleased. They were on doors facing south with an overhang so they were not exposed to weather. Within a few months they began to warp, continued to warp until they no longer closed properly. We had to replace within 10 months. Home Depot refused to refund as they were over 90 days old. We are out $300 for the doors, handles and hinges not to mention the cost of our contractor installing and the cost of new doors and installation. Do not recommend!

    Came broken, doesn't include ANY hardware whatsoever. My fault for not seeing that, but most screen door offered do come with the hardware. Not impressed at all for $125. This should be a $50 door all day long.

    The door was very nice except that it wasn't exactly square. Where the cross-piece is in the almost center of the door it was wider and sides would have to be trimmed. Did not fit the doorway...which was level and square!

    Absolutely LOVE it! It allows for fresh air flow through the house, and adds a bit of country charm to my front porch! Easy to install with the hardware package that I purchase with the door.

    The product quality was marginal. The middle of the door was 1/4" wider than the sides. Had to make adjustments to get it to fit.

      I am pleased with the vinyl material, the panel was square and ridged, but the vertical frame was not flush with top and bottom frame. This required shaving and sanding to make it presentable. The vinyl will be very stable and rigid and not affected by humidity reducing the possibility of warping. For the price the screen is a good value.

      excellent product for the price, mine didn't come with any instructions on trimming if needed but the webpage did mention it could be trimmed just as a wood door but if you've never trimmed one to fit your frame it can be a little frustrating especially if your door frame isn't square.

      Bought two of these doors for my deck and both are inferior products. After trimming one side I discovered the "solid" vinyl door actually had a cavity where the vinyl never filled in. Both doors are sagging and are not anywhere near square. The horizontal stile on one door was not completely inserted in the vertical stile so the door sides are bowed out and when trimmed on a table saw, remained uneven. The doors ended up like parallelograms. Because I needed to have the doors installed right away, I used a turnbuckle on each door to help with sag. One door is bowed so bad I cannot get it to seal against the door stop at the top and bottom. Save your money.

      Doors are fine, but screens were very poorly, sloppily installed. Any chance Home Depot will come to my house and make them right?

        This is a solid plastic Door and is moisture proof and needs no painting. Worth the money due to low maintence on the unit.

        Door arrived quickly. No damage to it. Workmanship = "Fair" as joints seem somewhat uneven on this vinyl door.
