International Builders’ Show Highlights What’s New in 2022

Feb 24, 2022

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) welcomed enthusiastic exhibitors and attendees to Orlando, Florida this month for the International Builders’ Show (IBS).

Billed as the residential construction industry's premiere event to scout new products and design trends, the Show was held in-person for the first time since 2020.

Clopay exhibited a combination of garage doors and complementing entry doors in new styles and colors, including the highly anticipated Lustra finish, a new Modern stained fiberglass entry door, and a new Shaker-inspired recessed panel smooth fiberglass entry door.

Fashionably Matte

Clopay Modern Steel Lustra

Lustra eliminates the embossed woodgrain and stucco woodgrain textures usually seen on steel garage doors, giving it a visually matte appearance.

Named one of the “The 10 Coolest Products at the International Builders’ Show” by Bob Vila.com, Lustra is a new low-gloss finish now available in Black, Charcoal and Silver on Intellicore insulated Modern Steel garage doors.

Minimal Maintenance

Low-maintenance is the mantra of most homeowners. But they want a quality product that looks realistic and high-end, especially when it’s emulating natural wood.

In the hierarchy of wood-look doors that require less upkeep, Clopay Ultra-Grain earns the people’s choice award for being versatile, energy-efficient and budget-friendly. And it looks good with everything - brick, siding, stone, or metal.

Clopay Bridgeport Steel Narrow Ultra-Grain

For a natural wood look and feel that can fool any resident woodpecker, faux wood composites are a premium material. Clopay has several options.

Canyon Ridge garage doors are made from a durable, UV- and moisture-resistant composite that won’t rot, warp, or crack.

The material is molded from natural wood pieces to reproduce the texture and grain patterns of the species it emulates. Like wood, it can be painted or stained.

Clopay Canyon Ridge Modern Mahogany

This Canyon Ridge Modern garage door has Mahogany composite cladding with a Medium stain and frosted glass windows down one side to give it Mid-Century appeal.

With the prevalence of black or white exteriors, natural has become the “new neutral” to break up broad swaths of color with warm, organic accents.

As any designer or homeowner tasked with selecting exterior finishes will tell you, finding complementing stain colors for garage and entry doors is a challenge, especially when both are visible from the street.

Clopay is the only garage door manufacturer to offer complementing residential entry doors, a real benefit for buyers who want to coordinate the design, shape, and finish of their exterior doors and windows.

Clopay Modern Fir Entry Door

Clopay is adding a new stained fiberglass Modern entry door line this fall.

Complementing Garage and Entry Doors 

Clopay stained fir fiberglass front door with narrow rectangular windows pairs well with the horizontal plank design of the Canyon Ridge Modern garage door.

Clopay Canyon Ridge garage doors also come in carriage house and louver designs.

Canyon Ridge Louver

Weather-resistant composites are ideal for coastal climates. Built-in wind-load reinforcement is available for hurricane zones.

The Canyon Ridge Louver garage door gives off beach-vacation vibes in a soft, green paint color.

Another weather-resistant material that offers custom wood beauty and even more design flexibility is Clopay Reserve Extira.

Clopay Reserve Wood Extira

Extira doors are built in three sections instead of four, resulting in proportionally larger windows preferred by many architects and builders. Paint color: Sherwin Williams St. Barts.

Extira is an eco-friendly, paint-grade wood composite that is moisture-, rot-, and termite-resistant.

Inherently strong, Extira carves, routs, and fastens like natural wood and won’t crack or split. The smooth surface is free of knots or voids, allowing for detailed craftsmanship and a furniture quality finish.

If you are a fan of using painted doors as a statement piece, the Reserve carriage house garage door is a perfect match with Clopay’s new Shaker fiberglass entry door.

Clopay Shaker Entry Door

Coming early summer 2022, this Clopay fiberglass entry door is factory painted Sherwin Williams St. Barts.

Like the garage door, the front door has deep recessed panels with defined edges and half sidelights for plenty of daylight.

Complementing Doors 

 

Fiberglass entry doors are known for their low-maintenance durability, weather-resistance, and energy efficiency, offering five times more insulating value than wood doors.

Daylight Savings Time

Floor to ceiling windows and doors that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living and flood spaces with natural light are a priority for homeowners. Fitted with glass panels, Clopay’s Avante® transforms the garage into a usable living space as a gym, workshop or office.

Glass garage doors aren’t only for the garage. A wide range of sizes, colors, and glazing options, make it make it easy to customize the Avante for pool houses, hobby sheds, outdoor kitchens, or as alternative patio doors that can be opened up to expand square footage for entertaining.
