Upgrade Your Garage Door, It is Worth It!

Homeowners are always seeking ways to improve their house with simple, affordable, and worthwhile investments. To put it plainly home improvements elevate your quality of living. And there are many reasons to invest in upgrades for your home:

  • Update the Look
  • Increased Home Value
  • Improve Functionality
  • Better Efficiency
  • Enhanced Security and Safety

No matter your reason for renovations you will more than likely have considered your return on investment. Making the most of your money is paramount. Experts recommend many home improvement upgrades, especially for the bathroom or kitchen. However, you can give your home a facelift in as little as a day when you upgrade your garage door. Check out these reasons why, and you will see it is worth it!

Excellent Return on Investment (ROI)

Every year Remodeling Magazine releases their Cost vs. Value report where they break down national home remodeling trends that offer the biggest bang for the buck. Year after year garage door replacement/upgrades ranks as one of the highest ROI. In fact, in 2018 it came in as the number one replacement job with the highest payback at 98.3 percent.

Improves Energy Efficiency

Having an attached garage is great in that it protects your car, stores items, or even acts as a workshop or workout area. But, when the space is not insulated, it is a giant energy suck. Imagine how hard your HVAC system has to work to cool your house in the summer with a huge hot box attached. Or the challenges it faces to heat your home in the winter with an enormous freezer tapping in sub-zero temps. When you upgrade your garage door to a well-insulated model, the improved energy-efficiency means you could qualify for tax credits. So the combination of tax benefits and improved energy efficiency translates to money savings.

Excellent Curb Appeal

Make a great first impression with a new garage door. There are so many styles and materials to choose from that you could virtually change the exterior aesthetic of your home with a door change. Additionally, because of improved manufacturing, there is now a wide variety of styles available for any budget. Improve your curb appeal and create a welcoming home.

Time & Convenience & Affordable

If you have ever made any home improvements, whether tackling the project on your own, or through hiring a contractor, you know two things: it always takes longer than expected and always costs more than anticipated. However, you can upgrade your garage door in as little as a day and change the aesthetic of your home’s facade in as little as a weekend. Plus, the price is the price. Once you have all the materials installation is a snap, and the price quoted is what you pay.

Enhanced Security and Safety

Your garage door could be the easiest way for a burglar to enter your home. If your older door is not secure, it leaves you and your family vulnerable. There are many points in which someone could breach an old door from manipulating locks, prying open doors with broken automatic openers, or reconfiguring a remote to your garage door opener’s frequency. When you upgrade your garage door, it enhances your safety and security. Newer technology has created solutions to all of these issues. Furthermore, the manufacturing expectations have improved, resulting in stronger construction.
