According to the 2016 Cost Vs. Value Report from Remodeling Magazine, a new garage door in the Pacific region can be worth 108% of the original cost in the resale value of the house, which means that renovating your existing garage door is a cost-efficient way to increase curb appeal and value. Even if you’re not looking to sell, garage door renovations are a financially sound long-term investment. Here are ideas for large and small upgrades with big payoffs:
Paint & Windows
Small projects like painting or installing window panels to your garage door can go a long way in beautifying your home and increasing curb appeal.
Even though it’s such a vital part of their homes, people tend to neglect routine maintenance on their garages. Maintaining a clean, smooth-functioning mechanism can increase lifespan, safety, and the value of the garage door for a small cost.
If your garage door does not have an automatic feature, updating to this modern technology is a great way to increase convenience and curb appeal.
Another option is to update to a brand new garage door, which can be especially beneficial if you own an older home. We have seen some innovative developments in engineering materials in recent years, like highly durable and beautiful looking faux wood composite. Upgrading to a sturdier material, such as aluminum or steel, will protect your home from burglary and can save you money on heating by offering more insulation.
