Guess what the top home improvement project nationwide with the highest ROI was? Upgrading your garage door!
The 2018 Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling magazine and the National Association of Realtors compared construction cost estimates for 21 common home improvement projects in 149 markets nationwide. They estimated the average ROI by evaluating the increase in a home’s selling price if the project was completed within a year of the sale. At resale, the average homeowner recoups 98.3% of the amount spent on a garage door upgrade! That’s almost 100%!
In addition to a high return on investment, upgrading your garage door also provides better energy efficiency and increased curb appeal. So even if you aren’t planning to sell your home in the near future, your entire family can still benefit from an upgrade.
Home owners should be extra conscious of energy savings when garages are attached to the house and/or serve an additional purpose, such as a laundry room or workshop. If you are frequently opening and closing the door, it will be hard to keep a consistent temperature. This is important not only for your comfort, but also for the cost of your utility bills! There is a fairly easy, cost-effective solution to this problem: have us install an insulated garage door that will significantly regulate the temperature inside your garage. There are many different options available for insulated doors these days, and we can help you choose the right one for your needs. Who doesn’t love increased energy efficiency, savings and comfort?
Your garage door can account for up to 40% of your home’s exterior appearance, which is all the more reason to ensure your garage door is in excellent condition and matches your home style. We make the process of selecting a new garage door fun and easy: we will share the many designs, hardware, finishes and options so that you can select the door that will perfectly compliment your home! Plus, your neighbors will thank you.
