I really like the materials used in this door, and the appearance is great. The workmanship left a little to be desired, though. When we got the door home we noticed a small dent on the interior side, and it was clear the dent was from the inside out, so it wasn't from shipping or handling. During installation I noticed the interior plastic trim on the threshold was not seated well on one side. When I could not get it to seat I pulled it back to inspect and found a nail had come through the threshold and was preventing the trim from seating. I cut the nail and solved that problem. I also noticed a razor mark on the plastic (wood grain) threshold moulding. Not a big deal, but not great quality either. The big issue was the door alignment. When I got the door square and set in place the door was too tight on the bottom seal. When I say tight, I mean that opening the door required so much effort it would have been a challenge for my wife a kids to get open. I pulled the door back out for inspection and found the door slab was too low in the frame by about 1/8th inch. Since I had already pulled the old door out I was stuck, so I trimmed the hinge notches, doweled the screw holes and moved the door up. The door is now installed, looks and works great, and no more air leaks.
Bottom line, the door is made of great materials, but the assembly and quality control need some work. If you buy one, be prepared for extra effort during the installation process.
