Rated 3 out of 5 by ScottInFoco from Not worth the price, some quality issues On paper, the specs for this door are great. However, the actual product falls short in a number of areas. I ordered the door unfinished. There were splinters and tear-out at all the mortises. On the edges, the seams between the fiberglass cladding and the wood substrate were irregular (bare wood exposed in seams) and needed to be filled. There was excess silicone sealant near the sweep seal on the bottom of the door and at the jamb-sill joints. Some of the staples used in the jamb/frame construction were mislocated, resulting in splintered wood in the jab. The jamb-side weather-stripping has some tears/slices in it. All the lockset plates I tried did not fit the mortises in the jamb; in the end, I had to modify the mortises in the jamb to fit one of the most common, Schlage lockset plates. I ordered the door from Home Depot. When the door was delivered, there was no documentation or hardware included (except the plastic plugs used to conceal the countersunk fasteners on the inside window trim). Home Depot contacted the manufacturer and was told many doors lately were errantly shipping without the accompanying hardware and documentation. Home Depot forwarded me installation instructions and a video from Thermatru via email, but I had to install the door using my own hardware (and without the wedges of weatherstripping at the bottom corners, and whatever else hardware was not provided to me). Those instructions were woefully inaccurate and generic. When following those instructions, there is no guarantee that the locking mechanisms in the door will align with the mortises/holes in the jamb after the door is installed. Fortunately I realized this before finishing the install and made the necessary corrections. All said and done, I am satisfied with the final installation. However, for the price, I expect a much higher quality of construction, instruction, and attention to detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellen 12 from Love our front door! We had a Therma-tru Pukse door with the Ari Axis glass package installed last year on our 1960s mid-century modern house. We love the extra security and energy efficient fit, but most of all we love how it looks. It’s the perfect door for our home and we get so many compliments from our friends and neighbors. Thanks for helping us to truly make our house our own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AustinMom from Love the door! The finish not so much I bought this door through Lowes and had my builder install. I LOVE the style of the door but the finish left something to be desired. The door arrived and had clearly not cured long enough because the surface was tacky and scratched immediately. I contacted Lowes and they were nice and attempted to get help from the distributor with no luck. We ended up painting the door. Sigh. Buy beware!
