I really appreciate the nice simple grid design of this light which makes it suitable for almost any house style. The light is made of cast aluminum and is sturdy enough to last for many years. It is the perfect size for installing on each side of my double garage door. I would have given it 5 stars if the mounting base was better aligned vertically with the light. The slight 1 or 2 degree misalignment is only noticeable if installed on vertical siding and then only by a super critical eye. If you need a larger light that closely matches the Maxim 1051, check out the Minka Lavery 8718.
I ordered (7) of these sconces, and all but one of them arrived in good shape. One of them had a broken glass which I assume was damaged during shipment. The manufacturer has assured me that they will replace the glass, and that it is not necessary for me to return the item. I received courteous instructions from customer service, with the least inconvenience to me.
