Move over plain vanilla garage doors. Clopay is inviting builders and remodelers to re-imagine the garage door as more than a functional necessity to protect our cars and our stuff.
During the 2016 International Builders’ Show (IBS), the residential garage door manufacturer will showcase contemporary designs and traditional carriage house doors constructed in a variety of materials alongside fiberglass entry door models to complement them.
"Garage doors have a significant impact on a home’s curb appeal, especially if they face the street, as is the case in many parts of the country where builders are working with narrow lot sizes,” says Pat Lohse, Clopay’s vice president of marketing. “Each Clopay door is built-to-order so it can be customized to accommodate wide and tall sizes, unique panel designs, rare wood species, bold color finishes, specialty glass, and more. With our complementing entry door line, builders and homeowners can coordinate the two main entrances of the home to make a stunning design statement.”
Amid the continued and growing demand for contemporary design, Clopay is highlighting its Modern Steel collection, which includes garage doors that feature clean lines, large expanses of glass, and custom colors.
Clopay Modern Steel Collection doors have a durable, three-layer insulated construction with optional Intellicore® polyurethane foam insulation, providing an 18.4 R-value, and Clopay’s WindCode® Storm-Ready® reinforcement for coastal and high wind regions. Grooved and flush panel designs are available.
In addition, Clopay will debut a new custom panel design for its popular Avante Collection aluminum and glass garage door, demonstrating how the stiles and rails can be adjusted to add visual interest and control the amount of daylight that enters the garage.
“Clopay garage doors and entry doors meet homeowners’ expectations for low maintenance, energy-efficient exterior products that are functional, fashionable, and customizable,” adds Lohse.
