Royal Garage Door is Proud to use America’s Favorite Garage Doors



Royal Garage Door is a proud dealer of Clopay Garage Doors—America’s Favorite Garage Doors. Clopay brings over 50 years of experience and innovation to the building products industry, and Clopay is North America’s leading manufacturer of residential garage doors. In 1996, Clopay earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of approval and to this day is the only residential garage door brand to earn the Good Housekeeping Seal.

Clopay entered the garage door business in 1964 by purchasing Baker-Aldor-Jones of Hialeah, Florida. In 1980, the first steel doors were produced and it led the garage door market towards a conversion from wood to steel doors—a HUGE improvement! In 1983, Clopay pioneered Tog-L-Loc technology. This advancement improved the assembly of steel doors and Clopay was one of the first to use pre-painted steel in its garage door business. Pre-painted steel improved Clopay’s aesthetic appeal over the competition. In 1986, Instrument Systems of New York bought the Clopay Corporation and the first Clopay Dealer Advisory Board was formed and met—the board is still active today! In the early 1990’s Clopay began manufacturing insulated sandwich constructed doors for the residential and commercial markets.

Clopay was the first to focus on garage door appearance and created the “We Look Right At Home” tagline. Clopay then expanded and procured both Ideal Door and Phoenix Door brands and introduced the EZ-Set Spring System in the mid 90’s. It was at this point in time that Clopay was recognized as the fastest growing garage door brand.

As mentioned before, in 1996, Clopay was then awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. The Good Housekeeping Seal adds protection to all Clopay garage doors. Within two years of purchase, if your door is found to be defective, Good Housekeeping will repair, refund or replace it—that is definitely a warranty to be proud of!

In 1997, Clopay then bought Holmes-Hally Industries (Arizona Door Systems, Holmes Door of Auburn, and Holmes-Hally Hardware), which made Clopay the largest manufacturer of residential garage doors in North America. Following these achievements, in 1998 Clopay lead the garage door industry with the WindCode product line and program. The Windcode line was then followed by the Reserve Collection (2000), Coachman Collection (2003), Brilliance Series windows (2004), Gallery Collection (2005), Avante Collection (2005), and the Canyon Ridge Collection (2011).

In 2006, Clopay purchased their 900,000 sqft manufacturing facility in Troy, OH and moved all other production manufacturing to this location as well. Following the facility upgrade, Clopay launched its polyurethane foam injected residential and commercial doors, Ultra-Grain paint finish, and a line of complementing fiberglass and steel entry doors in 2008. In 2012, Clopay then introduced colored overlays for their Coachman Collection and added the Ultra-Grain option to their Canyon Ridge Collection.

Since 1964, this company has constantly been expanding and improving its business for its customers. In 2014, Clopay has also made many improvements. In February, Clopay introduced garage doors in the color black by request of its customers. In April, Clopay Garage Doors were rated number 1 in Quality in the Builder Survey. In May, Clopay introduced Color Blast—a custom paint program for steel residential and commercial garage doors.
