What good is a garage door opener without a garage door? Not much. So, we talked to our General Contractor, did our web research and decided on Clopay, a manufacturer of both wood and steel garage doors (they manufacture entry doors as well).
Sticking to a budget, we chose an insulated steel door from the Gallery collection. This door has a 2″ thick sandwich construction consisting of exterior and interior steel skins filled with polystyrene insulation.
I spoke with Clopay and confirmed that the steel doors are made in Troy, OH (approximately 75 miles North of Cincinnati) and the wood line is made in Auburn, WA. Although Clopay wouldn’t report their employee count, they did confirm multiple shifts at both factories, corporate office employees, sales & marketing personnel, customer service staff, and distribution center employees.
Bottom line… great quality & reputation, American-made product & American jobs.
