Has anyone had any problems with the built in blinds in French doors?

We're just wondering if their really nice or just a pain. we'd like to close them at night but we live on a fixed income and can only afford to buy these doors once. So have the blinds given anyone any trouble? Thanks in advance

    We haven’t had any issues with ours
  • My advice, do not purchase them. It is expensive to fix when they break, and they will cease to function at some point. Better to purchase the best doors you can afford that have the heat and light resistant glass.

    Personal preference, get regular paned french doors without the built in blinds.
    Condensation can occur easily between the panes.
    Mount Levolor Blinds, much easier to work with. I have a triple french door with the "S" shaped levolors, love, love, love it.

    I don't have them, but know several people who do. They've had them for several years with no issues. Of course, they treat them gently and take good care of them.

    I would not recommend them. If they go bad for any reason you have to replace the entire door whereas you may only need to replace blinds if they are separat
