French-Style Sliding Doors is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty disappointed ONE delivery person showed up to unload three sliding doors. He was an hour early, which was fine because our help showed up an hour early, too. The open lock mechanism is unsightly and was not ordered. On one of the doors, the panel that that locking mechanism is mounted on is coming off. That same door has glue between the plate and the door on the door lock. There is a hole in the wood on one of the doors, there is a gouge in another door. One of the door frames has wood that is rough and uneven. The bottom wood of the frame of all the doors is oak that doesn't remotely match the pine. We paid a small fortune for these doors and expected much better service after delivery (moreso instructions for installation), and the condition to be flawless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful door but... The door is stunning but the quality control is poor. I can only assume volume is so high that Milgard is cutting corners in order to get product out. All of the hardware needs to be replaced because of stripped screws and sloppy installation. Plus I have to wait weeks for this to be done because it is not priority work. Only if there is imminent harm to the homeowner (like door does not lock) would I get quick service. I know I will enjoy my door once these issues are taken care off but it is too bad that these issues exist in the first place.

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 Extremely difficult to open This is our primary private entrance door (in back yard between detached garage and house). Because of this, we have to lock/unlock the door from the outside whenever we leave/enter the house. The door is "sticky" to open -- it requires two hands and you have to put your shoulders and back into it. You can't even have a bag thrown over your shoulder and try and open it, it requires that much effort. To make matters worse, the outside handle is very small and awkward to get the good grasp that is needed to yank the door open. It has been several months since we purchased this door and our frustration has only increased. If we could afford it, I would 100% replace it.

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 3 out of 5 by from Make Sure of Details ! The door came without any locking mechanism. We are still waiting weeks to get the hardware requested and are using a board to manually block the door in the interim.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VG Fir wood components finish not very good VG Fir wood frame and cladding on interior of doors was not of quality expected for quality of overall door construction and price of unit. Some pieces not totally smooth and, even with Benite treatment prior to staining, did not give true "VG Fir" appearance, (Some pieces OK --- so inconsistent). One jamb extension piece has a small knot swirl --- not truly VG!
