    Facebook Garage Door App
    Probably the coolest app on www.clopaydoor.com is the Clopay Door Imagination System. It allows you to upload a digital photo of your own home and “try on” as many Clopay garage doors as you want until you find the perfect fit. Now you can access it on Facebook, too. Just click on the “Try on a Door” tab at the top of the Clopay fan page. And when you're finished, we've made it super easy to share the options with your friends and family and even invite them to imagine a new garage door on their own home.
