Garage Door Openers for your Clopay Door

Although Clopay does not manufacture garage door openers, most brands offer models that work well with Clopay doors. Before deciding on a brand or model, do a little homework to be certain you are buying the best garage door opener for your door.

Some garage doors are very lightweight, such as a non-insulated fiberglass doors. However, some are very heavy, such as a solid wood carriage house garage door. Choose the best garage door opener model for door type.

You should also consider the purpose and location of your garage before deciding on an opener. If you have an attached garage with living space above or adjacent to the garage, you might want to consider a quiet belt drive garage door opener. If your garage is detached or is not under or adjacent to living space, a strong and dependable chain drive overhead garage door opener may be the perfect choice.Screw drive automatic garage door openers are also very dependable and reasonably quiet.

With standard or optional features such as keypads, extra garage door remotes for other members of the family, open door monitors (that notify you if the door is open or closed no matter where you are in the house), lockout to keep the door from being opened while you are away, and various lighting options, it can be difficult to choose.
