Customer Reviews for Essence Series® In-Swing French Doors New

Essence Series® In-Swing French Doors New is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outside protection, beautiful inside We are happy to let you know that we are pleased with our new windows. The old windows were far past their prime, especially the outside wood. The fibreglass exterior looks great and the inside wood is beautiful. The new windows make the house more pleasant in terms of temperature and no worries about colour fading. Bert and Connie

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One day with the windows. The windows were installed today. I don't have enough time with the windows to let you know how the product is working. I can tell you that the wife and I are extremely happy by the way the windows look and the ease of operations. Our windows are very basic and do not have may features. We hope that these windows last us for a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Look 10yrs old, 4 months in These doors look great on the inside and function well. The outside is another story. They're under a descent size overhang but occasionally get a bit of rain on them or possibly condensation. When it runs down the doors, it dries and stains. It would be one thing if it just leaves marks that can be wiped off, but that's not the case. I read online that I should use a dilute solution of white vinegar and water. I did this and nothing happened. The tech came out to determine this is not a product issue (I'm not sure what else it would be) and said to use a Magic Eraser. I'm worried that might destroy the finish. If that's the case, I hope that Milgard stands behind the advice given by their techs... If you have a place for these door that are completely clear of the elements, these could be good additions to your house. But if you're expecting low maintenance, this is not the product for you. To keep the damage to getting worse, I'll plan to clean and dry these each morning as many days as possible. Not at all what I bought...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Construction and Ease of Use The Milgard installer was efficient and professional. He made minimal mess during the demolition of my old, deteriorating, patio door and ensured that all of the debris was carted away, much to my wife's enthusiastic relief. The new slider, a custom Essence Series Slider, professionally and custom crafted was installed in a manner that prevented any water seepage from our exterior, a major fault with our previous door. The Essence door was elegant and matched the existing interior of our den. We can't be more pleased with this unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed Both of these windows had to be special ordered because of their size. Don't know if the guy from Bloedorn's miss measured or if they were not made to order but they were both an inch to short in width. And the one window was a twin casement & instead of opening in the center like all our others do, both windows open on the right. For the price we had to pay, I expected a better product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Bit Rough Quality -- it seems that this door has been cost reduced without enough attention to quality. The locking mechanisms are not easy to engage. The door track has a rough finish split in center. The screens are difficult (and maybe impossible) to adjust well. The access plugs in the door fall out and our dealer does not have a stock of spares. The door stops placed in the bottom track are rough and unsightly. The screen corners are also rough. Features: There are no "kick down" locks. The door does not have an inside trim piece to hide the closing joint and lock mechanism. Installation: The door movement is not free. And the door is leaking at the top of its closing joint. Hopefully the dealer will be able to correct all of this by adjusting the door again. The door has a great warranty. And we have confidence in our local dealer. If these were not the case, I would recommend shopping around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nightmare on Main St. Purchased the essence line for every window in my house with high hopes. This was a big order! The windows arrived when promised, but from day 1, the mechanism for opening and closing was so hard I can barely latch/unlatch it myself (strong-ish male).....and my wife and kids cannot open 1/2 of the windows at all. It took 2 months to get a response through our dealer and that response told us that it will be 2 more months before a rep will come look at the windows. Four months is patently absurd especially if this could be my contractor's mistake because I can't hold their retention without good cause, and since I can't even get someone at Milgard to even come give me an idea of what's causing the problem, Milgard's non-responsiveness is making a bad situation worse. In addition, 50% of the latch mechanisms were not glued and constantly slip off. It's also clear a number of the windows do not align properly. What a nightmare. Yet Milgard's window dealer says I have to wait 4 months before I can even talk with someone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the lock I wish the door locked automatically when closed, instead of my having to manually lock it every time. One of these days I'm going to forget with perhaps a negative outcome.
