Rated 5 out of 5 by from i am a professional installer. I have installed about 12 of these in the last month. I was initially attracted to the texture of the surface. It was not all glossed out like vinyl doors. The working mechanisms are about the same, with the stainless steel 3 point locking system, the lift lever latching, with the sidelights with lever handleset, and the adjustable hinge system. But, the major point that sold me was the ease of replacement glass if needed. On wood French doors, generally, they can't just replace the glass, the whole sash or full panel must be removed. which means staining and lacquering, or new prime and paint will be needed. The frames are stiffer, and reduce the possibility of snapping a corner during transport. Easy to square-up due to the stiff side frames. I could go on and on, but I think they are a great product, and no issues. Why would anyone use wood doors? South facing house Vs. North. no worry of rot, pests or kid damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Door. This door is more solid that he solid door that we replaced. I didn't think that possible. We absolutely love it!! it looks perfect like it always belonged there. The added screen feature we are for sure going to love this summer! Everything came pre-installed, all we did was put it in the hole in the house, and poof it was perfect! My only problem was figuring out how to operate the handles. That was a learning curve, as we had no directions included with our door. When we figured this out, it was a very impressive door, with amazingly secure feel. Would order from Milgard over and over! Thanks!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Appearance issue, wrong instal instructions provided On one of two doors I purchased the hinge stile is longer than the lock stile by about 3/16th of an inch it is noticeable after installation, I need to sand it down and refinish area when the weather gets warmer. The instructions provided to both doors gave enough information on door installation but the hinge adjustment information was for a different type of hinge. I found the correct information after digging around your website. All in all a nice, solid and secure door (s).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Top price, bottom quality We just had three new Milgard Essence French doors installed, having paid a lot (and I mean a lot) of money to get top quality and avoid shoddy workmanship. After it took an initial three days for our highly experienced contractor to install three doors, he explained that he was spending a ton of time trying to get everything to fit and function properly. Upon further inspection, it became clear that there were many things wrong with all three doors - bad weather-stripping, damaged and missing screens, ill-fitted hardware, wide tolerance variations, etc. Spoke with the Sacramento Warranty Center, and they put me in touch with a service tech, who advised that we finish installing the best we could, and call back to schedule a service call, where they would fix the problems. I did so, and was told the soonest they could get someone out was 7 weeks later. The rep I spoke with refused to give me the name or direct number of a supervisor. Unacceptable on all levels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with some minor issues. We purchased two single replacement doors for two separate single patio door openings. We purchased them both at the same time. The first door we installed right away and it was great. It all worked great, there were no issues with the door before or after installation. We were very happy with the product. The second door was left in the packaging and stored in our garage because of time constraints, we were not able to install it immediately. There are a few issues with the second door. The is a chip in the fiberglass and there is a crack in the fiberglass of the jam. The hardware was not installed correctly and we could not unlock the door. We had to take the handles off and fix the mechanism in order to unlock and open the door, and the finish is rubbed off on the interior door handle on the second door. in the end we have installed it and we are happy with the door for the most part but we would like someone to come out and look at the crack in the fiberglass of the door frame. We had to install the door despite the issues because we had already removed the old door when we discovered the issues and could not leave a huge whole in the wall .
