We Started Out By Reframing the Openings

Installing a new garage door properly requires having solid, flat interior jambs that are in good condition. This house had jambs in place that were too short to properly accommodate the bearing plates of the new torsion spring system we were installing. We probably could have made do, but we call ourselves “Doors Done Right” for a reason. We believe in doing top quality installations to ensure that our customers’ doors ard opners are installed neatly and safely for the long haul.

We also were installing somewhat thick doors and the concrete ledge at the bottom of the door would have become an issue with the old jamb thickness. We installed new 1″ x 4″ pine jambs, drilling pilots and fastening the tracks with extra long lag screws so that they went securely into the frame of the garage, not just the jambs.

Clopay’s Modern Steel line of flush (no panel design) garage doors are a great way to maintain the modern look of your home without sacrificing thermal efficiency or potentially paying thousands more for aluminum-and-glass doors.

Clopay Modern Steel Garage Door Construction

Clopay’s model 9133 garage door is a 1-3/8″ thick, 3-layer (steel + insulation + steel) garage door with Clopay’s Intellicore® polyurethane insulation and an r-value of 12.9. The Clopay model 9203 is a very similar door, but is 2″ thick with an r-value of 18.4. The polystyrene-insulated 3-layer options 1-3/8″ and 2″ thick and have r-values of 6.5 and 9.0 (respectively).

We like the 1-3/8″ thick model 4053 garage door with polystyrene insulation (r = 6.5) for awesome quality at a reasonable price, and the 1-3/8″ thick model 9133 garage door with Intellicore® polyurethane insulation (r = 12.9) for great thermal efficiency while still getting a great value for your money.
