Clopay® Extira® Offers Custom Wood Beauty in a Worry-Free, Weather-Resistant Paint-Grade Material

Apr 16, 2019

Clopay has added a new low-maintenance wood-look door option to its residential product line.  

Extira, an exterior-rated weather-resistant wood composite, is now available on the Reserve Wood® Collection Custom and Limited Edition Series paint-grade doors.

Made from eco-friendly materials, Extira is moisture, rot, and termite resistant, offering superior performance to paint-grade materials like MDF and many wood species.

It carves, routs, and fastens like natural wood, and has a perfectly smooth surface free of knots or voids, allowing for detailed craftsmanship and a fine, furniture quality paint finish homeowners expect in a premium carriage style garage door.

The density of the substrate makes it easy to incorporate deep V-groove patterns with defined edges, like a Chevron, or arches, to achieve a natural wood look that just isn’t possible with molded material. Because of its inherent strength, Extira won’t crack or split.

Extira doors are typically built in three sections instead of four, resulting in proportionally larger windows, which many homeowners, architects, and builders prefer.

The door has a 4-layer polystyrene insulated construction. Extira cladding and overlays are applied to the exterior face of a 2”-thick hemlock frame base. A luan woodgrain backer gives the interior of the door a finished look, and can be painted or stained.

Extira can be painted any color including black. Standard Clopay windows styles, specialty glass, and decorative hardware are available, as are custom designs. Learn more at
