Pros & Cons
The door hardware is beautiful, but I have mixed feelings about it. We recently renovated our home and I purchased this style for the side doors and also ordered the Weslock Stonebriar style for my front double doors.
The install was tricky even for my husband who is extremely handy and can do anything. The directions are very poor and you have to figure a lot out on your own - like removing the depth extender if your door isn’t in need of it.
All of the door hardware in the two styles that we ordered are fairly stiff, but that may change over time with more use. The finish is not as “matte” as I had hoped - it’s more like a satin finish.
Shortly after we installed this Molten Bronze Tramore style on one of the side doors, the exterior knob became very loose - to the point that it would come off while just pulling the door shut. Direct Hardware sent an entire door knob replacement super fast as they have great CS.
Sooooooo, there are definite pros and cons, but the hardware is beautiful and provides the farmhouse look at a reasonable price. Direct Door Hardware definitely had the best price! Time will tell how well they hold up...but for now, I’m loving the look. :)
