Faux wood garage doors have surged in popularity because they offer the look of natural wood without the upkeep.

The new Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series faux wood carriage house door from residential garage door manufacturer Clopay has been named one of the “Top 100 Products of 2012” by This Old House magazine.

The garage door is featured in the November/December 2012 issue and online at http://www.ThisOldHouse.com/top100.

"The TOH Top 100 is the result of an exhaustive search for the most forward-thinking, relevant and necessary new home products out there,” says Scott Omelianuk, Editor of This Old House. “Through the winners, we saw several major trends emerge in homes, including bringing the outside in, simplified Do-It-Yourself, and getting high-end looks for less.”

“It’s not very often that a new product, particularly a garage door, enters the market and is instantly named one of the best in the category,” says Pat Lohse, Clopay’s vice president of marketing. “We are thrilled that This Old House recognized the innovative use of materials and the exceptional design detail of this unique Clopay garage door.”

Faux wood carriage house garage doors have surged in popularity among builders and homeowners who want the high-end look of wood, but don't want the upkeep.

About the Garage Door

The Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series features a durable, low-maintenance polyurethane insulated steel door with an Ultra-Grain woodgrain paint finish. Composite polymer overlays molded from Clear Cypress boards are attached to the steel door surface to create the carriage house designs.

Unlike wood, this garage door is moisture resistant, so it won’t rot, warp, or crack. But it still offers the intricate grain patterns and textures you’d expect to find on the real deal. It’s also insulated with a two-inch thick polyurethane foam core for year round comfort and energy savings. Fourteen panel designs with optional windows and decorative hardware are available in either a Medium or Walnut stain finish.
