Faux wood garage doors are becoming a popular alternative to real wood doors. Unlike natural material, they are UV resistant and impervious to moisture, meaning they won’t rot, warp or crack. Durable, energy efficient, and very easy to maintain, once installed, they are virtually indistinguishable from the original.

Clopay offers two unique options of faux wood garage doors.

Clopay Canyon Ridge™ Collection – Faux Wood. Real Beauty.

Named one of the “Best New Products of the Year” by both residential builders and garage door industry professionals, the Clopay Canyon Ridge Collection combines the beauty of a natural wood appearance with the latest innovations in polymer composite engineering. 

The door is constructed from a durable, low-maintenance composite cladding molded from actual wood to replicate its natural texture, character and charm. The ½” thick material is attached to an insulated three-layer steel base door for added strength and energy efficiency, delivering a 19.2 R-value.

Three wood “species” are available and the surface can be stained or painted at the factory so it arrives ready to install. Windows and decorative hardware can also be added.

Ultra-grain™ “Stained Steel” Garage Doors

Clopay also offers faux wood grain garage doors with our Ultra-grain paint finish. This faux wood grain garage door gives homeowners an affordable, natural-looking “stained steel” garage door solution. 

The baked-on multilayered coating is extremely durable and requires no special maintenance to preserve the garage door faux wood finish. The “grain” runs in two directions, both horizontally and vertically, for a more authentic natural wood appearance. 

Ultra-grain is currently available on two Clopay door styles: the Gallery® Collection, an insulated grooved panel vintage style steel door and the Clopay Avante® Collection, a contemporary aluminum and glass garage door.

Choosing the Right Garage Door for Your Home’s Unique Appearance

While the Canyon Ridge and Ultra-grain doors both provide a stained wood look, each line offers a very distinct appearance that lends itself to specific architectural styles. 

The Canyon Ridge Collection is the perfect exterior accent for Mediterranean, Southwestern Adobe, French Country, and a rustic, lodge style home or cabin. 

Since Ultra-grain is available on two completely different door styles, it works with a broad range of looks including Mid-Century modern, traditional, Arts & Crafts, English Tudor, and more.
