We have all seen them when we’re driving through our neighborhoods, the house with the dilapidated garage door. What was once a new and beautiful home has become an eye sore not only for the home owner but also for the neighborhood. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Replacing your garage door can be an easy way to give a tired, sagging home the face lift it needs. And for people thinking about selling their home, a new garage door can represent a great return on investment (ROI).
In Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Survey, replacing the garage door ranked third in mid-range priced home improvement projects with an ROI over 88%, and in upscale projects, placed second at over 82%. With these kind of numbers and the fact that your garage can make up as much as 50% of the façade of your house, it becomes a no-brainer option for many home owners.
Danielle Seifert, Founder of www.buildingdsm.com and an accomplished Realtor for over a decade believes that upgrading your garage door can add significant curb appeal when selling your home: “A new garage door should not only be visually appealing and provide maximum curb appeal, but also be the perfect fit for your home. For homeowners looking to sell in the near future, having a high ROI on large home improvement projects is very important.”
