Door Installation reviews in Land O Lakes


Our existing front door was somewhat warped and not sealing. Additionally, the glass inserts in the door and sidelight were single pane, clear glass and we thought that the overall design was plain and unattractive. Replacing this door would not only improve energy efficiency but should also update (improve) our house's

Initially, I planned to comparison shop at several places, including the big box stores. In the end, I went with the
Land O Lakes Door Installers Provider Name Locked
quote because of the following:

1) The

has lots of stained glass patterns on hand to choose from. The big box stores have limited on hand stock so we were pretty sure that we would have had to select our pattern from a "picture" rather than actual glass. Since so much of choosing a replacement door is esthetics, that is "how is looks", we didn't want to choose from a picture.

2) Although the cost would probably have been less at a big box store, we felt that the quality of the material and installation workmanship might be less as well. I've purchased several doors from big box stores in the past and was not overly impressed by the quality of these doors.

, the owner of the

, spent quite a bit of time explaining to us why they used the materials they used and why it was worth spending a little more. Still, there wasn't any pressure to buy "the very best".

's husband is the "installer". Big box stores do not install things themselves. They contract out. Contracted jobbers are usually paid a fixed fee so the only way for them to make more money is to do more jobs by doing them quicker. Cutting corners is one way of doing them quicker.

4) I checked out the
Land O Lakes Door Installers Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list and didn't find any adverse information.

A major cost driver for these doors is the stained glass pattern you chose,
Land O Lakes Door Installers Provider Name Locked
told us that we could save maybe $1000 if we just went with plain glass. But, then, we'd basically have the same door we were replacing. So we ordered the stained glass inserts we wanted, regardless of price.

's husband first came out to verify measurements. A somewhat unexpected revelation was that the door and frame would be unfinished. They is, you will have to finish yourself or contract someone else to do it. An explanation for this was that during installation, there would be holes that would be drilled that had to be filled. Apparently, most choose to paint their door and frame. Initially, we wanted to "stain" rather than paint. Just be aware that there is extra work/cost involved to finish the door after it is installed whether you paint or stain. Our son purchased a fiberglass door, less the stained glass, at a big box store and it came "pre-finished". So, once the installation was done, the whole job was done.

The installation went well.

's husband and a helper spent about 3 hours removing and installing the door. Since he knew we were going to finish it ourselves, he gave me a number of tips to make things go more smoothly. They spent quite a bit of time "shimming" the door so that it fit correctly and so that "gaps" were even.

I collected all the materials - stain, brushes, filler, brush cleaner , etc, - to stain the door. But, I got cold feet. There were several different types of materials used in the door installation - fiberglass, of two different colors, bare wood, white primed wood, and the hole filler itself. Making all of these materials match in color seemed like too much work with an unpredictable outcome. Additionally, if you stain, you will have to varnish as well. Every couple of years, you will have to re-varnish. Who wants more home maintenance?

In the end, we decided to paint. I don't know what it would cost to have someone finish the door for us. If it was my business, I would have a "connection" with someone who could finish the door. That way, I would have confidence that the door would be finished correctly.

Not all of the material was readily available,but I was called each day until they had the material and came out to build the structure.The crew finished the major structure........ working past normal working hours.

came over the next day and installed the hardware......JOB WELL DONE. Another company gave me bid on this job that was $700.00, and I was flippantly told that a 4 foot chair rail on the side would cost another $100.00.......don't accomodate estimators that don't seem to be all that interested in what you are asking for. Communication along with the work was a key factor on this job going smoothly.....Thanks

based on their rating in Angies List.....

Owner arrived as scheduled, and was very nice, presented a lot of information, and did a demonstration of the various options and items associated with installing their new windows and doors.

I did research their products, and they were very good...however, the estimate was nearly double what I ended going with.

I am sure based on the reviews on Angies List that this is a great company, but in my case, it came down to the cost. I am very happy with what I got for the price I paid....

He responded to my phone call immediately and was in the area so he came by and fixed the sliding glass door that afternoon. He gave me a price to do all of the work that includes purchasing the door, delivering it and installing it.

This experience has been a very good one just like in the past. I would recommend
Land O Lakes Door Installers Provider Name Locked
to anyone who needs handyman services. He is responsive, reliable and very professional. He returns texts and phone calls immediately and when he tells you he will do something, you can rest assured that he will do a great job!

Every thing went fine and the bedroom, family room, 2 bathrooms, guest rooms, and halls are beautiful! I have several more rooms to do, and I won't call any one else.

I signed the contract and made a deposit on November 15, 2009 for three 8x8 and one 8x6 feet sliding glass doors. The contract stated 4 to 8 weeks which I thought was too long, but it did give them plenty of time to complete the job. WRONG. It should have said four to eight months. The job was not completed until March of 2010. The first time they ordered the wrong opening on one of the doors. OK, they are human and we all make mistakes. I was assured that the correct door had been reordered. On the day that door was due in, over a month later, I was informed that the door had not been ordered for whatever reason. One of the 8x8 doors was installed incorrectly and almost every time I used it I stumbled out. I told them this immediately but they would not reinstall it until the other reordered door came in. This door still does not work properly but I do not care to deal with these people any more. I found the installer to be rude and not professional when he showed up at my home on a day that I specifically told the owner not to come because I was having other work done in my home. Initially, I had also intended to have all of my windows replaced by
Land O Lakes Door Installers Provider Name Locked
but after going through much unpleasantness, many delays, and (as I later found out) overpricing, I had my windows replaced by another company that I would give an A+++ rating if one existed. I did give the other company all A's. I wish I had not used and will not use
Land O Lakes Door Installers Provider Name Locked
again. I debated with myself as to if I would even write a report because I do not like to give out negative reports unless they are really awful. They were not awful. They were just bad. I do love the doors that they installed and the company who made the doors live up to their warranty.

They came and took their time. It was accurately and perfectly. They were excellent and very honest. I would recommend them, and if I have to use them again I will. The fee that I paid was less than I expected.

I contacted

, who was very helpful scheduling the appointment for the same day.

and his assistant called ahead, and were right on time. Our large

was not in bad shape, but had started getting sluggish and making a little noise.

showed us the old rollers which had corrosion on the housing. Since the door is large, he replaced them with new double inline rollers at each end to support the weight smoothly on the track. I believe he crafts all the roller units he installs.

The door now slides effortlessly and silently-- and is even better than when it was new! This was much better than I expected. It is nice to see someone who takes so much pride in his workmanship, and is not satisfied until it is just right.

The appointment was easy to schedule directly with the owner and they were able to schedule the work very quickly. Two workmen came out and they were very pleasant and informative, got to work quickly and finished up. They gave me pointers on cleaning and maintaining the tracks and offered a lubricant product without pressure which I went ahead and purchased; they gave me the informaion on how to find it myself but it was convenient to get it from them so I did.
The estimate given over the phone was right on track but I voluntarily added some additional work when I saw how great the replaced panels worked.
The rollers used are high quality double brass rollers. Much better than what I had.
They did not attempt to upsell at all, I had to make a specific request to replace all the rollers as they were just planning on doing the side that moved mostly, I appreciated that.
I felt the value was well worth the money spent. The doors operate better than new I literally can operate them with my little finger.
Overall I am extremely happy with the work.

- Barbara G.

the site visit and estimates were provided with clarity and adhered to, which is always a plus.
I was provided an very attentive and detail effort in providing for a conversion of 2 spaces into closet space. I was also provided a superb job of placing glass into a semi circular area over the doorway leading into the Master bath.
The cleanup, leveling, fit and trim in all aspects of the job were without complaint.
I would absolutely use them again for small to moderate remodeling jobs.
