James Watson Denham Springs, LA

I will never buy a Cloplay product again. Purchased a 16x7 insulated garage door in 2015 from Home Depot. Called today to get information about the spring (which I have in hand with a label stating size and part number) and was told they could not give me ANY information without the door serial number. The serial number is printed on a paper label affixed to the bottom of the door and has long since detached itself. This most likely happened during the Great Flood in 2016 that inundated 75% of the parish. I have an electronic receipt from Home Depot and a model number, but all of that information is not sufficient. I will not buy one of their products again. Horrible customer service policies.

When ordering from Home Depot and Clopay you will wait 6-12 MONTHS for your order to arrive to an installer to deliver or install. Expect clopay to say your door arrived at the installers when it hasn't yet or for many parts to be missing. I've had no hinges before, 3 out of 5 sections, so many issues. It is a lower quality door compare to one of the best which is CHI. CHI will get you doors in under 2 months.

Bought a Pair of Cloplay Garage doors with custom glass thru Home Depot. Someone broke out one of the windows. Many calls and orders later, I still can't get replacement glass. First, they cancelled my order since it did not have the $150 special shipping charge for the $24 window. Next, I ordered two windows and paid the $150. They cancelled the order again without any notice. I would not buy from them ever again. I just bought an Overhead door for another house, and was very satisfied, and they can provide parts if necessary. Not a bad door, but woe to you if you ever need parts.

We have been using Clopay/Ideal garage doors for 20 years. Used to be a great company. But... there customer service has gotten so bad we are awitching to a different door company. It's gotten too difficult to get parts or technical info.

We ordered our Clopay garage door on September 1, 2021, and as of January 21, 2022, it has still not shipped. I understand the "supply chain" challenges they blame on their web site but if Clopay can't deliver a "standard" product within almost five months, they should not take the order in the first place or warn you of the delay. I don't blame the local retailer... Clopay is the source of the problem. While they are high quality doors, their ability to manage customer expectations and product delivery is awful.

I ordered a door at Home Depot and Clopay delivered the door directly to my house. When I opened the package the bottom panel on one door was smashed, damaged and I went back to Home Depot and Clopay never delivered the damage parts or do anything to fix it. Bad customer service.

1 panel was dented, no gaskets are provided, track support is not provided. You get what you pay for. I do not recommend this company. If you want to save yourself problems, buy elsewhere.
