    Great Event In Downtown Vacaville: The Vacaville Kid Fest. Sat Oct 6th, Andrews Park


    Vacaville Kid Fest was started in 1999, when an idea was born to create a "Children's Festival", a place where families could come and have a day of activities with their children at very little or no cost, and also have the opportunity to learn about many of the services and resources that were available to children and families. We adopted the theme "For the Child in all of us".

    A group of City of Vacaville representatives, ranging from business owners and managers, nonprofit groups and media people were approached with the idea and met it with enthusiasm. And thus, Kid Fest was born.

    The first Kid Fest Core Committee consisted of Shauna Manina, Meaghan O'Neill from Vacaville Police Dept., Linnea Dischinger from Vacaville Fire Dept., Todd Grames and Suzanne Green from Community Services Dept., and Reggie Hubbard from Housing & Redevelopment Dept. Other business people from The Reporter, Downtown Vacaville Business Improvement District, and others all committed to the vision of a day of low cost or no cost activities, free resources, and fun.

    Our first event in 1999 had 1 stage and 40 booths, with everything from food, crafters and merchandise vendors, a wide range of social service and community nonprofit groups, free children's games and entertainment, bounce houses, and a very strong focus on child safety and health. From the beginning, a large component of the event has been the presence of Vacaville Fire and Police Depts., with their equipment displays, children's fire muster, and safety information.

    By 2001, there were 2 stages of entertainment and over 120 booths participating in the event. The committee members have changed over the years, but the event has continued, and become part of the fabric of what makes Vacaville a family oriented community. The focus remains on child and family safety and health.

    See more about this wonderful organization at www.VacavilleKidFest.org

    See you there!

    Some Questions About Steel Garage Doors Answered

    Q: What should I use to clean my door?

    A: Any product with tri-sodium-phosphate (TSP), such as SoilaxTM or diluted Spic-n-Span. In areas where there are TSP restrictions, use a mild household cleaner. All products should first be tested on a small interior surface to ensure color fastness.
     

    Q: What do you recommend for painting of my steel garage door?

    A: Steel doors should be painted with a high quality exterior latex (water base) paint. The surface must be cleaned prior to application of paint to the steel (on new doors it just needs to be wiped down with a damp cloth and doors which have been installed for awhile should be cleaned with a tri-sodium-phosphate (T.S.P.) based product [such as SoilaxTM or diluted Spic-n-Span] or a mild household cleaner). Doors do not require a coat of primer unless the finish has been damaged down to the silver galvanizing.


    Q: Does my steel garage door require maintenance?

    A: Clopay recommends the following maintenance be performed on an annual basis (please refer to the installation manual for a detailed description of the maintenance requirements):
    • Clean door surface with a mild household detergent and rinse with clear water (best if done twice a year)
    • Lubricate all moving parts of the door with light household oil (e.g. WD 40)
    • Check for bent or loose hinges
    • Check rollers for broken wheels, bent shafts or worn out bearings
    • Check the door and track supports for loose or missing bolts, screws, etc. and tighten.
    • Check the extension spring lift cables for proper operation (are they running properly in the pulleys, is the cable rubbing at the bottom bracket button location?)
    • Check for bent track


    Important: Do not attempt to make repairs on your garage door without proper instructions or the assistance of a qualified professional door technician. Do not attempt to do any repairs on a standard torsion spring assembly (which requires the use of winding bars for installation or adjustment).

    Clopay® Earns Gold Innovation Award from Home Builder Executive


    Clopay today announced that it has received a Gold Award from the editors of Home Builder Executive for product innovation in the garage door category.

    Clopay’s Coachman® Collection 2” polyurethane insulated steel and composite carriage house garage door and the Canyon Ridge® Collection Ultra-Grain® Series were both recognized for their durable, low-maintenance, innovative design, and superior energy efficiency.

    “Carriage house doors continue to be popular among homeowners and builders looking for ways to distinguish and add value to their homes,” says Pat Lohse, vice president of residential marketing for Clopay. “These two products provide the look of natural wood without the upkeep. Clopay’s use of innovative construction materials and foam-injected polyurethane insulation help reduce maintenance costs and energy loss.”

    Clopay recently added a 2” thick polyurethane insulation option with an R-value of 18.4 to its Coachman Collection, doubling the thermal performance of a polystyrene insulated door of the same thickness.

    Fifteen carriage house designs with optional windows, decorative hardware and four paint colors are available to complement a variety of architectural styles.

    The company also expanded on the success of its Canyon Ridge Collection Limited Edition Series faux wood door line, introducing an equally attractive and more economical version called the Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series. It features a 2” polyurethane insulated steel base door with Ultra-Grain,
a durable, natural-looking, woodgrain paint finish. Stained Clear Cypress composite overlays are applied to the steel door surface to create beautiful carriage house designs. It also has an R-value of 18.4. The ½”-thick cladding overlay material is molded from actual pieces of Clear Cypress wood to replicate its natural texture and intricate grain patterns.

    The Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series is available in fourteen panel designs with a choice of windows or solid top sections in two finish colors: Medium and Walnut.

    Clopay® Garage Doors Featured on Southern Living 2012 Idea House - Tours through December


    Clopay Coachman® Collection carriage-house style garage doors are featured on the Southern Living 2012 Idea House, a renovated 1830s farmhouse located in Senoia, Ga.

    The home plan is an innovative blend of regional historic cottage style with a few contemporary additions suited to living in the 21st century, including an attached two-car garage with a complete guest suite located above.

    The architect chose Clopay’s insulated 4-layer steel and composite Coachman Collection garage doors with insulated rectangular windows and an “A” frame panel design to complement the clean lines and rustic architectural style.

    The Coachman Collection mixes old world charm with modern technology to provide a low-maintenance alternative to wood carriage house style garage doors.

    Although the barn-style garage doors appear to swing open, they operate with the modern convenience of a LiftMaster Model 8550 opener.

    “Steel carriage house doors are a popular alternative to traditional wood doors because they are durable, insulated and won’t rot, warp or crack, eliminating the ongoing surface maintenance wood doors require,” says Pat Lohse, Clopay’s vice president of residential marketing.

    Fifteen models with optional windows, decorative hardware and four paint colors are available to complement a variety of architectural styles.

    Polyurethane insulation is foam injected between two steel skins, providing an R-value of 18.4 to help improve the energy efficiency and comfort of the living space above the garage.

    Coachman Collection doors are available with Clopay’s built-in WindCode® reinforcement system for homes located in coastal and high wind areas.

    The Southern Living 2012 Idea House is expected to draw 40,000 visitors from across the country to tour the home, which is open to the public now through December 23, 2012.

    Located 25 miles from Atlanta, Senoia’s main street looks like a scene out of Driving Miss Daisy – because it actually was. The town doubles as a back lot for popular film and TV projects including the classic Fried Green Tomatoes and AMC’s current television hit, The Walking Dead.

    A portion of the proceeds from the home tour ticket sales will be donated to Camp Southern Ground, the charitable partner for the 2012 Idea House.

    Zac Brown, of the GRAMMY award-winning Zac Brown Band, donated a 500-acre piece of property south of Atlanta to build a summer camp for children ages 7 -17 with typical and special needs.
    A feature article about the project will appear in the August 2012 issue of Southern Living magazine.

    For more information and directions to the home, visit southernliving.com/2012ideahouse.

    Amarr Garage Doors Featured on HGTV Curb Appeal: The Block



    Products from Amarr Garage Doors were featured on a recent episode of “Curb Appeal: The Block” on HGTV. The first airing of Curb Appeal featuring the Amarr products was on Friday, May 4.

     It is likely to be repeated during the next couple months (please check local listings for dates and times).

    Neighbors Amanda Kelsoe, Amy Warren and Hollee Ford from North Euless, Texas were selected for exterior home fa├žade and landscape makeovers from John Gidding, host of “Curb Appeal: The Block” after entering a nation-wide contest sponsored by the “Rachael Ray Show.” Gidding and HGTV said they chose the Euless neighbors because of their strong sense of community.

    Gidding and his team asked Amarr Garage Doors to provide complementing garage doors to enhance the curb appeal of the homes. A local Amarr dealer Family Christian Doors installed Classica Collection and Stratford garage doors that complemented the design of the homes. The designers and construction crew worked on the houses concurrently during January 2012.

    “We are so grateful to HGTV and Rachael Ray for choosing our families for this project,” said homeowner Amy Warren.

    Clopay® Introduces Canyon Ridge® Collection Ultra-Grain® Series

     
     
    Residential garage door manufacturer Clopay is expanding its line of faux wood carriage house garage doors, combining two of the company’s most popular styles into a new, energy efficient, low-maintenance, economically priced line called the Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series.

    The Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series features a polyurethane insulated steel base door with the company’s innovative Ultra-Grain simulated stained woodgrain paint finish. Composite overlays molded from actual pieces of Clear Cypress wood are attached to the door surface to create the carriage house designs.

    Unlike natural material, this faux wood door is moisture resistant, so it won’t rot, warp, split, shrink, separate, or crack.

    "The ½”-thick cladding overlay material replicates with uncanny realism the natural texture and intricate grain patterns of the Clear Cypress pieces it is molded from," says Pat Lohse, vice president of residential marketing for Clopay. "Once installed, it’s virtually indistinguishable from the real thing"

    The Ultra-Grain steel paint finish has a horizontal grain pattern to complement the overlays.

    The Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series is available in fourteen panel designs with a choice of windows or solid top sections in two finish colors: Walnut and Medium. Optional decorative hardware can be added to enhance the character of the doors.

    Two-inch thick polyurethane insulation foam injected between the door's two steel skins with a thermal break provide an 18.4 R-value for year round comfort and energy efficiency. It also adds strength and rigidity to the door panels to help resist dents and reduce noise. Insulated windows are also offered.
