Overall a great door! First one came in damaged and Home Depot got right on it, had a new one in no time. Watched the video prior to install
and read all directions while installing and my wife and I could not be happier. FYI if you are needing spare keys do so at a locksmith as the key hole is narrower than a standard key. Let them know the key is also thinner. Not a big deal...we will be adding one to our back door as well.

Love this RECESSED security door! It was worth the wait (to be back in stock) and worth the price, just under $700, as it allows me to feel peace of mind having my front door open overnight. Did I mention it is recessed, and together with the simple mesh look, it is inconspicuous, because I live in a townhouse community and it is necessary to follow their rules for everything and I also did not want to broadcast to everyone that I spent that much on a “screen door.”

The door was beautiful, but I was unable to install it because the screen door handle is placed in such a way that it hit my front doorknob. Furthermore, when I try to use the handle to open the door, the handle hits my doorjamb.

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer,
Recessed mount doors are more prone to hardware interference issues. Download and follow the instructions to determine if hardware interference will be an issue. If so, you can either build your mounting surface out to create the clearance required, switch to a surface mount security door if it will fit or mount your security door with an opposite swing to your main entry door. For more information please view the How to Measure and Fit range document on the product page.
I absolutely love this door. Yes, it is a little complicated to install and a little pricey but the end result is totally worth it. The Meshtec material is practically indestructible, and I have four very enthusiastic indoor dogs. I feel safe when I have my wooden front door open to let fresh air in through this screen door because the locking mechanism is a beast! You get what you pay for with this door.

Husband installed the door. It took 3 days. Challenging, but came out well.While we were expecting to get a standard security door, this is better because there's no heavy bars blocking the view. I didn't want to have to get an extra key, either...but I really like this door. It all worked out.
