Put Down the Backsplash - Replacing Your Garage Door is the Most Valuable Remodeling Project

Posted on September 18​, 2017​​

They say inner beauty is what matters most… but that’s not the case when it comes to your home!

According to the 2017 Cost vs. Value report​, giving your home an exterior makeover, such as updating the garage door, is the best way to increase its value and score big with potential buyers.

Interior vs. Exterior

When there is only so much room in the budget, it can be tempting for homeowners to gravitate towards the most common remodeling projects, like overhauling the bathroom or kitchen. However, you may want to put those plans on pause.​

The National Kitchen and Bath Association reports that the average American spends around $19,000 on full kitchen and bath remodels with unpredictable rewards as styles and tastes are subjective to each homeowner. In fact, out of the 29 ranked projects on the Cost vs. Value report, not a single type of kitchen or bath renovation ranks higher than 17th.

With these figures in mind, it’s more financially prudent to invest in enhancing your home’s curb appeal. Installing a midrange or upscale garage door results in a 76.9 and 85 percent ROI, respectively

As a result, a garage door upgrade was ranked as the NUMBER ONE project for upscale projects and a top five project for mid-range projects!

Betting on Safe Investments:

When it comes to making home improvements and investing responsibly, putting your hard-earned money behind a modernized garage door is the best way to guarantee peace of mind.

“With the housing market as competitive as it is, making a great first impression to buyers by updating an outdated garage door is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to boost resale value,” said Heather Meiner, Brand Manager for Overhead Door. (Press Release​)
