Folks, hate to burst you bubble.

I am in the home repair bus. Got to your local lumber yd and give them an
extra $100 or so for some thing that works.

The last 3 doors I tried to do from HD were a total mess.

One was a big door, 24 in side window panels, an arch over head.

Got a copy of the rough opening spec's, Cut a 36in arch above the door. 108"

Got the door, 104" wide with a 24" arch.

Part number on door was same model number as on the spec sheet. Took HD 45
days to get it straight,

One had no hardware or trim boards. After 60 days in a NE winter, Customer
went with local store purchased another door from them . Everything right
and fit, install was less than an hour.

They fought with HD another 60 days for refund.

Third door was $50 cheaper at HD than at local lumber yard. Got it, it was
particle board not full wood. Broken in less than 30 days.

You get what you pay for in that bus.

A guy from Lowes told that most of their stuff was seconds. Had copper pipe
from them that had pin holes.
Water everywhere

Just this mans experience.
