A good clopay garage doors will last for decades, maybe even for a lifetime. It is therefore logical to spend a little extra time and effort making the best possible choice. Order a garage door over the phone or ask for problems online. Each garage is a bit different, and an expert salesperson checks details such as opening size and shape, headroom and side clearance and even helps you make design decisions.
And if something goes wrong, there will not be any question about whose fault it is. Real wooden clopay garage doors look great when they are new. But unless you are willing to spend time and money on maintenance, they will not look good for long. Natural finishes last a few years before they need to be re-applied. And if you wait too long, you have to cut off the entire finish and start over again to make your door look like new again.
The good news is that you can get the look of wood for a fraction of the costs and also avoid the nightmare of maintenance. The least expensive option is embossed with a faux wood grain finish (less than $ 1, 000). From a distance these doors look remarkable on real wood. If you want to spend more ($ 2, 500 and more), consider a clopay garage doors with an overlay of wood composite or fiberglass skin.
