Oct 28, 2016

We’re excited to announce Clopay’s October imagineNATION Makeover Contest winner.

Believe it or not, this picture perfect transformation was three years in the making.

Clopay Grand Harbor Collection, Design 12 with SQ24 windows.

Once the homeowners moved beyond the idea of tearing down the garage and starting over, they made a plan and stuck to it, gradually turning their design vision into reality as their budget allowed.

The new garage doors were the last project on the list because they refused to settle for anything but carriage-style doors.

That required some patience considering only one of the two automatic garage door openers actually worked. Imagine having to get out of the car and manually open and close the garage door in the middle of a Wisconsin winter. No fun!

After doing some comparison-shopping, they decided to purchase Clopay doors from Jiffy Overhead Door.

Clopay’s online Door Imagination System helped them narrow down their design options, which they then shared with friends on Facebook. The consensus was they couldn’t go wrong with carriage house doors.

Since the garage is detached and unheated, they chose the Grand Harbor Collection, a low-maintenance steel door with composite overlays. It gave them the look they dreamed of at the price they could afford.

Patience and perseverance paid off. The homeowners say they are now basking in the beauty of a garage that went from pretty horrible to pretty darn good. We agree.
