According to Remodeling magazine, homeowners who replace a garage door can see up to an 84 percent return on their investment. This puts the garage door above kitchen and bathroom remodeling, which is often thought of as the top ways to add value to your home.
New Garage Doors – Curb Appeal
Replacing your old garage door adds to both the value of your home and it’s curb appeal. In many modern home designs, the garage door can account for up to 30 percent of what people see from the street. This makes them a significant part of your curb appeal that should not be ignored when considering your home improvements.
When shopping for a garage door replacement, you should be concerned about the style and materials. Your garage door should be a style that reflects both your home’s architectural style and color. You want the garage to compliment the home and not clash with it. If you own a contemporary home a carriage house-style garage door is not going to be your best choice.
At the same time you might want the garage door to stand out as part of the overall home’s design. Luckily, there are many style and color options available. Your experienced garage door installer can help you choose the best design for your home.
After you’ve upgraded your garage door you might want to take a look at your driveway. If it’s in need of repair, now is the time to resurface it. A poorly maintained driveway can take away from the curb appeal of your new garage door. Homeowners have a number of choices to improve the appearance of their entrance. Cobble and block stone paving can offer a beautiful look to your curb appeal.
