CINCINNATI (September 22, 2017) -- Clopay® Canyon Ridge® Collection Limited Edition Series faux wood garage doors are featured on the This Old House 2017 Idea House, a one-of-a-kind coastal home in South Kingstown, RI.

The three-story shingle-style, gambrel-roof home highlights innovative building techniques and durable, weatherproof, energy-efficient materials for coastal building.

This Old House produced the project in partnership with Wakefield-based Sweenor Builders, Union Studio Architecture & Community Design, and Denise Enright Interior Design.

The finished house will be revealed in the October issue of This Old House and online at on September 22nd. It will also appear in several episodes of the upcoming 39th season of This Old House premiering on PBS this fall.

The design build team selected Clopay Canyon Ridge Collection Limited Edition Series Intellicore® insulated faux wood carriage house doors with built-in WindCode® reinforcement for the home’s two-car attached garage. Marathon Door and Glass in Hopedale, Massachusetts managed the installation.

The Canyon Ridge composite cladding looks like real wood, but it won’t rot, warp or crack, which is an important benefit for exterior products installed in a damp, four-season coastal environment. The boards are molded from real wood pieces to replicate the grain pattern and natural texture, and they can be painted or stained.

Sustainability equally important to style and function in the Idea House product selection criteria. Besides improving energy efficiency and comfort in the garage, the Canyon Ridge door’s five-layer construction and two-inch thick polyurethane foam insulated steel core increases its strength and rigidity. 

And, Clopay WindCode garage doors are Storm-Ready®, meaning there is no need to add posts or additional reinforcement to secure the door during a hurricane. Reinforcement is built in and engaged by simply locking it. This feature gives vacation home and rental property owners peace of mind in knowing that the garage door is secure as long as it’s locked. 

Clopay WindCode garage doors are available in many different styles including traditional, carriage house, and contemporary designs. Consult your local Clopay dealer for building code requirements in your area.
