I had seen this type of screen door in several home shows and large home centers but the price was $400. My search led to the ODL retractable screen door on the Overstock website. Bonus! It was on sale. Our contractor, while doing other work, installed it and it is great! It's used when a breeze and fresh air is desired through the house. I've already ordered another one for the front door. It took a little getting used to in the beginning - it doesn't look like the typical screen/storm door as it could have had us walking through it but past reviews were helpful.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Durable, attractive, quality product
How accurate was the on site description of the product? On the mark
The standard door ODL retractable screen was just the product we needed for the inward opening door to our patio. We only had limited space on the frame around the door and did not want to keep holding the door open with one hand when taking food or refreshments out on the patio. I had no problem with the installation although it does take some minor modifications to fit the exact door sill configuration. If you are not handy with a hacksaw, drill, screwdriver, and making accurate measurements, this may not be the product for you. People with pets or young children or grandchildren will find the screen is very transparent when closed which could lead to children or pets running through it and damaging it.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Very Good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Onsite escription was accurate
Simple design and easy installtion if door frame meets standard framing criteria. For my project, I had to install a filler piece above the top track to close in the space. Also, I needed to purchase another door threshold still plate so the bottom track could be attached to some type of framing structure. The interio door opened out to a patio.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color shown did not match the bronze color that was ordered. However, the bronze was what was required for the project.
How is the quality of the product? Good sturdy construction
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
These are heavy-duty doors so the quality is good in that respect. However, I had to add additional bracing to get it installed because where they said to "screw it to the frame" there wasn't a screw hole in the metal ??? Frustrated doesn't cover it. Also, it said it is for an 80" opening, but it left a 1 inch gap at the top which I had to fill up somehow. Next time, I will hire someone local to do the screen work and skip doing it through mail-order. It works, but you have to use your foot to slide it straight or the netting buckles.

I am thrilled with my retractable screen. I put it up myself in less than 2 hours and am so pleased with the color. Being able to open the front door and let cool air flow through is ideal and because I have a beautiful wood front door, this retractable screen couldn't have been a better choice.
This product should say "ODL Retractable Screen for Standard INSWING Door". The Overstock description is WRONG: "Fits standard 6'8 in- and out-swing doors". It does not work for outswing doors.
Although a standard 36" door (of any swing) *IS* 36x80, the opening is LESS than 80 if the 'standard door' is an OUTSWING door.
There is a different product for that (perhaps ODL RSSHWE), with a lower height, although not necessarily available at Overstock.
A friend of mine got one of these a few years back from a Home & Garden show. I thought it was very cool! Another friend bought one at a big home improvement store, installed it themselves and paid a lot less money. I went in to that store and they saiid you couldn't purchase them and install the. Yourself anymore. You have to have the company come out to do the install. The cost would have been around $500!! I thought that was ridiculous!! So I found it here, ordered it and it showed up on my doorstep 2 days later. My boyfriend installed it in a couple of hours and it works great! I am very happy!!

Fantastic screen door! I really like it. One of my dogs tried to run through it minutes after installation I panicked because the bottem screen pushed way out, but in seconds went back to the original shape and I closed the door perfectly. I have put crosses of tape on the bottem so my dogs will not go through it again, its almost invisible!

My door measured 84" unless I measured wrong. Please send directions on how to measure correctly. (outside vs inside edge, etc.) Thanks.gabbyzabby on Nov 18, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi gabbyzabby, When measuring for this screen you will want to measure the width of the opening and the height from the opening at the top to the sill at the bottom. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 9, 2013
