Clopay’s Door Imagination System

Imagine finding the perfect garage door for your home or business without even leaving the house. It’s easy (and a lot of fun) when you use Clopay’s Door Imagination System to choose the best garage door for your home right from your computer. All you have to do is upload a photo of your home or business and start trying on doors until you find the perfect fit.

A new garage door can dramatically change the look of your home, not to mention increase your home’s ROI. But you can’t exactly return a garage door after it’s purchased and professionally installed like you can a pair of shoes. And that’s where Clopay’s Door Imagination System comes in.

What’s also great about the system is that you can see what different window options, panel styles and custom hardware will look best as well. The options are really endless, and when you’ve finally settled on the door you want, you can easily share your images with us, and we can get the ball rolling so you can have your new garage door installed in no time.

Ready to get started? Take a few pictures of your garage door, check out Clopay’s garage door collections, and start designing. Then, send your choice to us and we’ll work with you on the next steps to install your new garage door.

Your easy fall garage door maintenance checklist

It’s getting cooler outside, and you know that that means (or at least what we’re going to say!)… it’s time to check your garage door and make sure it’s ready for the weather ahead. This season, we’ve kept the list simple, but what’s on the list is important. Trust us, you don’t want to deal with a garage door repair during the busy holiday season or when it’s bitter cold outside.

Take a look at the list below to ensure garage door is ready for winter.

Garage Door Replacement. If you’ve been planning on investing in a new garage door for your home this year, now is the perfect time. There are a myriad of benefits to replacing your garage door in the fall – from better energy efficiency to increase security to not having to worry about costly repairs.

Garage Door Springs. You’ll want to check your garage door springs now to make sure they’re working properly. Try pulling your garage door’s release handle when the door is down completely. Then, lift it part of the way up and let it go down on its own. If it comes down quickly you may need your garage door springs adjusted or replaced.

Also check that your garage door springs are lubricated. Sometimes, especially in older garage doors, the lubrication can dry up or harden which can cause your garage door springs to not work optimally.

Check the seal. The bottom of your garage door should seal to the ground. This is essential to keep drafts out of the garage – as well as any pesky critters! If there’s room between your garage door and the ground, it may be time to replace your garage door or the garage door seal.

Replace the rollers. We recommend replacing your garage door’s rollers every five years, and they should be checked at least once every year. If you haven’t done this yet, make sure to do so before the weather gets cold. Look for worn, cracked or chipped rollers. If you see any, give us a call to have them replaced.

It doesn’t take long to complete these fall garage door maintenance items, but it can really save time and money in the long run. We’re happy to check your garage door, too. Just give us a call to set up an appointment with one of our experienced technicians at your convenience.
