Clopay Garage Door Difference

Clopay Garage Doors are made with the highest quality and technology. They are built to last.

  • The Rust-Prevention system gives your door layers of protection, including a hot-dipped galvanized layer, metal oxide pretreatment and baked-on primer and top coat.
  • The corrosion-resistant galvanized springs are built to last 50% longer than the industry standard.
  • The Safe-T-Bracket prevents serious injury that could occur if the bottom bracket were to be removed with the garage door closed and under tension – something that you are likely not going to need but would be thankful to have in place if you needed it!
  • Another feature that you are unlikely to need but would be thankful to have is the reliable Spring Containment System. It is designed to prevent damage if a spring would break.

Clopay is the only garage door backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal. Even though Clopay garage doors are guaranteed for 5 years, the Good Housekeeping Seal gives you the added confidence. The Good Housekeeping Seal offers consumers a warranty for 2 years to either replace or refund the purchase price if your product is defective.  This highly coveted seal is only given to products reviewed by expects and accepted through the Good Housekeeping Research Institute.

How to Choose a Clopay Garage Door

When choosing the best garage door for your home, first consider your home’s architecture. With Clopay Garage Doors, you are sure to find the perfect match with a variety of materials to choose from and styles to create your own custom garage door.

Take the Clopay Door Quiz to narrow down which door would be best for you.

The easiest way to choose a garage door is to see what it looks like on your home before you buy it. With Clopay, you can even use the Door Imagination System to see what a Clopay door would look like on your home. Upload a picture of your home, then add a Clopay door in any shape, style, and color to select the door that would look best on your home.

We used the Door Imagination System tool to select the best garage door for our home. It made it easier to see what each door style would look like on our home. See images below on our old garage door and a few door styles we “tried on.”

In the end, we selected a garage door from the Canyon Ridge Collection.

We continued to use the Door Imagination System to design our door, including the # of wood panels on the door, wood color, top panel window selection, and hardware.

From there, we clicked on the link to Find a Complementing Entry Door.
