Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susu Love My New Beautiful Garage Doors
My 40 year old wood doors were rotting away...I tried to duct tape and glue the bottom panel on...pitiful mess. I saved my pennies and got two new sparklie clean white Clopay metal doors with window panels....I just love them...my family and friends are probably getting sick of my sending them photos...but my neighbors are really glad I got rid of the "blight" on the neighborhood. Love my new garage doors!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GPitt A lot of work, but worth it
I bought two 8X7 doors and two belt drive openers to close in my carport. The first step in the process was to figure out what would fit and how to frame it. By reading the Clopay instruction manuals online, making simple scketches and going outside to measure my opening, I was able to figure out that I could fit two 8X7 doors. Framing up the openings was not very difficult. My mid size SUV has just enough clearance to get through the door without stressing me out too much when backing out. I'd have been much more comfortable with a 9 foot wide door, but the carport would not accomodate it.
You have to read the instructions VERY carefully, and expect to make a few trips to the Home Depot for supplies during the install. Between the two doors and openers, I think I bought about $200 worth of additional supplies. (nuts, bolts, washers, angle iron, galvanized screws because the screws supplied to secure the track to the framing are not compatible with treated lumber, garage door lubricant, all-thread, fresh hacksaw blades, rope). I didn't use everything that I bought, but I used most of it.
It took me about two days to install the first door and opener, but only about 2/3 of a day to install the second one. I'm a pretty experienced DIY'er and this job was quite a challenge. I needed some help, but only to help me hold things in place, or to help me line things up. The helper does not need a high skill level.
Both doors worked perfectly the first time and they look great. One is slightly off kilter, but that is probably a function of the ground that it sits on. Overall, I'd say that my three day weekend was a success. Well worth the time it took.
If the doors don't hold up over a reasonable amount of time, I'll add another comment.
