Rated 1 out of 5 by browneyedangels Sloppy Craftmanship
The mat is very sturdy, and has the potential to be a great mat. However, my mat is very flawed. The edges around the scroll work appear as if they took a bunch of leftover rubber with them when they were removed from the mold. The edges are jagged and have extra rubber attached to them. I called Ballard and they sent out a replacement. The replacement also has this problem. I would imagine that the whole lot of mats that were manufactured are like this. Someone needs to be examining these better, this is not the kind of quality I expect from Ballard. That being said, I am going to keep the mat, because I have had a difficult time finding something for our double doors, and it's too much hassle to return it again and start over. I don't think most people coming in my door will be examining my mat too closely. It just bothers me because I am a perfectionist and expect to get what I pay for. I have attached a picture, but it is hard to capture in a picture just how sloppy it looks in person.

The construction of this doormat is terrific--sturdy, heavy, and even sports a bit of a sheen, sort of like a new tire! It is pretty, cleans well and looks good.
Only drawback is that it does not entirely cover the width of a full-sized double door entry--falls short by a few inches on either side. Still, we kept it and will enjoy the change from the heavy double coir mat it replaces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by emmaclaire aesthetically pleasing and high quality but offers little traction on rainy days
I purchased several different sizes of the same style mats in preparation for rainy/icy days. It has intricate patterns that is so pretty to look at and also they are very well made. However, on numerous rainy winter days in NW, it offered little traction because the top of the rubber surface is so smooth. Perhaps adding grooves at the top surface, compromising the looks a bit, might offer more traction. Disappointed with the functionality as it offers little traction.

The excellent quality of the material was no surprise. I had already purchased the stair treads and a smaller door mat for the back door. I was please with the size and it fits my front porch perfectly!

Bought two of these. One for the front double door. One for the french back door. After shopping at many retail stores and looking for double door mats this was such a welcome surprise. Very transitional in detail and so far very practical. No water accumulating underneath the mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bett13 Great door mat
Love this door mat it is just the right size for a double door, deeper so more of the outside stays outside but easy to clean. Just hose it off and it is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pickypickshoper Excellent quality, great look!
Was very pleased with this door matt. I have large 6 foot wide double entry doors ... and this fits beautifully! Great look, and thick, soft rubber. Compared to buying 2 large door matts to put side by side, this was a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brooksie This doormat is what I wanted
We needed an extra large doormat for our outdoor entry and were thrilled to find this one. We've only had it a brief time so I can't comment on durability, but it looks great and meets our needs.

This doormat is so impressive! It is very, very classy looking (have had several comments and inquiries about it), and very high quality. I love the way it enhances our front entrance and how durable it is - this will be with us for many years! It arrived fast, in perfect condition, and is a true treasure! Buy one here with complete confidence!

This is a very nice door mat. I have received several compliments on it. It has a strong rubber smell when first unwrapped but after it is unrolled & laid out, the smell dissipates. I recommend this product.

This mat looks like it should hold up against the beach atmosphere. The last mat lasted 3 years before it started to look ratty and had to be replaced. We will see how long this one lasts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shopper94402 Best alternative
My first choice for outside doormats is coir with a single monogrammed inital. But water of any kind stains them and within months they start to look dilapidated. The rubber doormats are sturdy yet attractive and appear to be the best alternative. (Thought I would pass out from the smell when I was driving them home, but the smell dissipates in a day or two.)
