There’s no substitute for the warm, distinctive look of wood.

Wood can be mistakenly perceived to be a low-durability material when in fact wood has tremendous natural strength. A properly finished and maintained wood door can last a long time – even as long as a door constructed in steel!

Clopay® Reserve® Collection and Classic Collection wood garage doors are handcrafted from only the finest wood species and harvested from sustainable and naturally fallen forestry. Clopay wood garage doors are available in traditional, carriage house, and modern style doors. No matter the style or finish of a home, we can build a wood door that truly makes an impact to the visual appeal of a home. With numerous wood species and stain options and nearly infinite design flexibility, the possibilities are endless!

TIP: Choosing the right wood species.

Understanding which wood species works best in each type of environment or situation is the first step in ensuring a long-lasting door. Although design elements such as grain and wood color are a factor in choosing a wood species, it is also important to consider the climate, location, and finish requirements. All wood species interact differently with their environment as well as with finish products such as stain or paint. Understanding each species and its distinct color, durability characteristics, and interaction with finish types will help you choose the right species for the project.
