Here’s what This Old House general contractor Tom Silva had to say about Clopay doors in the July issue of the magazine.

Reserve Limited Edition Design8

Clopay Reserve Collection Limited Edition Series wood carriage-house style garage door, Design 8 in cedar.

“So many houses have garage doors right on the front that it makes sense to find one that looks as good as this Clopay door does. Made of western red cedar to resemble old-fashioned carriage-style doors, it still rolls up and down using a standard garage opener.

We used one like it to dress up an 1897 Newton, Mass. shingle-style TOH TV project.” Watch the video.  

Clopay is in good company. See Tom’s other all-American product picks.

Bob Vila featured Clopay Avante Collection glass garage doors in his spotlight article “17 Brands Born and Loved in the U.S.A.”

He notes, “Founded in 1964 and based in Ohio, Clopay is North America's largest manufacturer of residential garage doors. The company, which is the only residential garage door brand since 1996 to be backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal, also offers Energy Star-qualified front doors to complement their garage door styles.”
