In-Swing French Doors is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 34.
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 5 out of 5 by from Awesome door, high quality For the price, we are happy with the look and feel of the door. Install went smoothly and feels much safer then the old sliding door.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from really like our new door but. we love the door. one issue, the fixed handle is loose. it wiggles when you grab it. We realize it is just there to push the door open, but it still bother us. we had a milgard repair tech look at it and he confirmed that it will wiggle due to the design. For a product that is obviously built solidly to last a long time, a wiggly handle design seems to go against your design philosophy. Thanks

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The doors would be great if there is no defects I purchased two in swings French doors . One of them worked great from day one, the other one has a defective panel. It takes two people to lock the door , one person must push on top while the other have to lock it I requested the service, someone came in may from the Millard and agreed that the panel is defective and will be replaced. Since then no one show up and I didn't get respond to my email. Probably you're very busy after new customers and have no time to correct the issues Hope some will contact me soon

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is terrible and I wouldn't buy another Milgard product! After the initial install Milgard service reps had to come back to adjust the side panel doors and dirty glass between the panels was replaced in one of the two side panel doors. The main door glass had to also be replaced due to scratches in the glass. The main door has never opened or closed without scraping the bottom door sill. Milgard service reps have said the door is manufactured incorrectly. It is crooked by greater than 3/8 of an inch. They have ordered a new frame and Milgard sent them hinges instead. They have ordered the door frame a second time and I am still waiting for it to be delivered and installed. The door was ordered in October 2016 and installed in November 16 2016. First service call was on December 27, 2016 (6 weeks). Second service call was February 7, 2017 ( another 6 weeks) and it was determined the door was crooked and needed to be replaced. Third service call was scheduled for April 4, 2017 (another 8 weeks gone) and it was cancelled due to, I was told, damaged parts being delivered. Fourth service call was scheduled for May 11, 2017 and again cancelled due to no parts from factory being delivered. Fifth service call was occurred on May 16, 2017 and only new hinges were brought, not a straight door frame. We are currently (June 6, 2017) at 28 weeks since the door was initially installed and still the crooked main door remains in place without anyone at Milgard letting me know when this door frame is to be replaced with a straight one that doesn't drag and stick on the door sill every time you enter or exit the door.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor construction, slow service Screen was not fitted to window. The screen was of flimsy construction that is not likely to last. The holes to secure it to the door did not match the holes in the frame. Similarly I am concerned that the seals around the door will be needing replacement within a relatively short time. Door was installed in January. Expect something in April. Paid for more expensive glass that did not have guarantee that lesser quality glass.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Esseence Door We recently purchased a Essence french door and 3 new windows through a contractor. Our home was broken into over 2 months ago and we opted to wait the 2 months for Milgard to manufacture while we had wood and cardboard over our windows. Delivery and installation day came (2/8/17) and after removing the crate from the door we notice it was not the correct door, my contractor checked his emails he found Milgard somehow did not contruct the correct door. We had the option of sending the door back however this would mean another 2 month wait. We decided we would work with the door that we received. Once the door was in place we were unable to get the door handle and lock to function so the door is stuck. This means the door cannot be shored up properly so it is temporarly installed. As of today 2/9/17 we are currently waiting to hear from Milgard regarding the warranty and what can be done to repair this. This door was very expensive I would have thought they would have at least tried to operate the door before it left the factory? I would check other brands before buying this wasn't exactly the experience we expected.
