Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Good door for the money
This is a review for the 9ft tall, 8 ft wide Clopay Value Series door. Despite the long wait time indicated on HD's website for this door, it was delivered in only a couple weeks by a local overhead door company. Don't expect this to come in one big box... each panel is individually wrapped, the tracks are not boxed but are tied together, and all the parts are included in an additional box. I mention this because it makes moving the unassembled door around very easy.
Installation was simple and took me about half a day working alone. All parts were included. Read the instructions front to back before starting and install will be a breeze. You will need a few basic tools, primarily a small set of wrenches.
Overall, I'm pleased with the door. It was installed in a newly constructed barn. I was planning on building a different type of door for another vehicle bay but instead ordered another one of these doors due to the price and easy of install. My only wish is that they offered a taller door (9 or 10 ft tall)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by fred to poor quality
I purchased this door thinking its a good name brand. The door is to light duty, hinges are thin and the springs are a joke. I have maintained garage doors for years and will never buy another one of these. Clopay makes a good door just not this one. The springs are to strong when the door is down ( the door wants to open on its own) and to weak when the door is up (will not even keep the door open to the top) no mater how you adjust them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Klap Not a great door, but customer service is horrible.
I have installed a bunch of these over the years, probably due to the fact that they are cheap, and most of my customers think that the quality will be the same as their OLD Clopay door. Not so.
The doors are flimsy at best, and although they WILL hold up ok if installed correctly, they are easy to dent, and the hinges are easy to bend as well.
BEWARE: Many of these I get are bent in the box, necessitating a trip back to Home Depot. Sometimes, the boxes are not hurt at all, as if they were bent at the factory, and shipped anyway. Could it be that HD has forced them into such a low price point that Clopay is giving them seconds?
The last door I got was missing 4 track screws, which forced me into a call to Clopay's customer service number. NOT a good experience. It also forced me to drive back to a customer's house, ( 22 miles each way), and the customer had to do without his garage for a week. I'm out half a day's pay, and he had to leave his car outside....
I was told by Clopay that they have a "partnership" with Home Depot, and I SHOULD have gone through an HD associate to get the new parts ( thus adding a whole 'nother layer to the problem- HD would likely lose the parts when they came in....).
All in all, I WILL be recommending against using these doors from now on, and will advise my fellow contractors as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Markdanger Nice Door. Poor Instructions.
I couldn't pass up this door for the price. I installed it into a fresh opening so I was completely starting from scratch. The only negative thing I found were the instructions included. The diagrams were more helpful than the written instructions. Eventually once the door and frames started taking shape it became apparent on how the rest went together. Please note you will need to purchase the rear track hanger kit separately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AAAAA123 Great Value for Average Homes
My house was built in 1983 and it was time for a new garage door.
I installed this myself with a buddy helping. The entire project took 6 hours.
We removed the old door and track first. Be careful the spring don't get you. Then we put this door in place, installed the new track, and used the separate track mounting kit, attached the existing door opener and WHAMMO. Beautiful new door.
Looks Great. Opens Smooth. 25 gauge steel is thick enough to do a good job.
Honestly it was a better door than i thought i would be getting for the value price. I attached pictures.
