It’s becoming more common knowledge that replacing your old garage door for a stylish new one will increase your home’s curb appeal, increase the overall value, and, because of modern insulation, can immediately save you money on your energy bill by lowering your heating and cooling costs.
According to the 2017 Cost vs. Value report, garage door replacement is one of the best ways to increase your home value and said to give you anywhere from 70-80+% return on investment, making it also one of the best projects for home improvement for overall ROI.
When you consider that a garage door often makes up around ⅓ of a home’s front exterior, it makes sense that choosing a garage door that is stylish and complements the rest of your home’s style matters when it comes to it’s value!
But how exactly does the new garage increase your home’s value?
- Your home’s curb appeal is more important than you might think, especially when you are thinking of selling. Increasing your home’s curb appeal is a fast and easy way to immediately make your home more valuable because first impressions are everything, especially to potential buyers! You’ve got to attract potential buyers from the curb to draw them inside and make them want to buy.
- New garage doors have better insulation than outdated ones, which helps the environment and saves you money on your energy bill each month. And because energy efficiency is all the rage today, as it should be, potential buyers will immediately be attracted to greener homes and willing to spend more money to have one.
- Everyone cares about the safety of their home. Doors made before 1993 will most likely not pass a UL 325 inspection and are not as secure as newer garage doors. Plus, there is newer technology to go with your stronger garage door to keep your home and it’s residents safe, like photo eyes and monitored garage door opener systems. You will sleep better at night knowing your new garage door is safer and potential buyers will always appreciate it.
There really are no reasons to not get a new garage door, it’s win-win investment every time. Not only do you get to come home to a beautiful garage door every day, you also save energy, increase your home’s value, and protect your home.
