We bought this screen door to replace our old one, which was torn thanks to our dog scratching at it to be let it. We weren't looking for anything fancy- just a plain screen door, so that we could open the glass door when the weather nice without letting bugs in. We picked this one from Lowe's, mostly because it just about the only that we could find. It does come in 2 colors - a white or gray frame, and several sizes.

We brought the first one home, only to find that it had a small tear in the screen already. I took it back and was able to get a new one with no problems. The new one was tear free, but certainly not problem free.

First of all it wasn't all that easy to install. You wouldn't think it would be that hard, but you had to adjust the height at the top and bottom, so that it would roll easily on the track. There wasn't really any way to know exactly how much to adjust, so it was trial and error. Once you had the proper height, it just popped in the frame, but we had to do this several times to get it right. Not hard, but certainly a pain. We've also found that the lock doesn't line up with our exixting frame, so it doesn't work. It's not a big deal right now, but when our son figures out how to open it I may change my mind about that.The last problem we've had is that the screen has already popped out in one corner. I was able fix it, but it isn't stretched as tightly as it was and will come out easily again.

I wouldn't recommend this screen door, unless it's the only one you can find. I guess it gets the job done, but not well or easily.
