Clopay® Garage Doors Featured in GAF “Homeliest Home” Contest Winner’s Exterior Makeover on Fox & Friends

Aug 23, 2012


Clopay Canyon Ridge® Collection Limited Edition Series garage doors were included as part of a $60,000 exterior makeover package awarded to a Blue Springs, Mo. family as part of The GAF “Homeliest Home” contest.

The dramatic exterior makeover results were revealed today on the Fox & Friends national morning show.

In addition to new Clopay garage doors, the family received a Lifetime Roofing System from GAF, the contest sponsor, and windows, siding, stone veneer, railing and designer accents from The Designed Exterior by Ply Gem.

GAF selected three winners for its “Homeliest Home” contest from entries received nationwide in the following categories: (a) a family impacted by illness; (b) a family impacted by military service, or (c) a family impacted by a weather-related event.

The Kurtz family in Blue Springs was selected as the winner in the military category as a result of Mr. Kurtz’s 34 years of service. On his last tour to Iraq, he was injured and also now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder after multiple deployments. Along with their dedication to the U.S. military, the Kurtz family has also taken in their two nieces in order to give them a better life and safer home.

About the Canyon Ridge Collection

Clopay’s Canyon Ridge Collection is the perfect accent for the front-facing two-car garage on this Craftsman style ranch and coordinates nicely with the overall color scheme and other details like the front door.

Constructed from a durable, low-maintenance, energy-efficient composite material that looks like real wood, the Canyon Ridge Collection is moisture-resistant, so it won’t rot, warp, shrink, or crack. Like wood, the surface can be painted or stained.

The cladding is molded from actual wood pieces to replicate the species natural grain textures and intricate grain patterns.

The door features 2” of polyurethane insulation with a 20.4 R-value to improve the comfort of the Kurtz’s home year round. Insulation is an important consideration since the garage is attached to the home.
