Spruce Up for Springtime
Spring is officially here! The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and it is time for a little spring cleaning. This is the perfect season to make your home neat, clean and stylish. What better way is there to spruce up the exterior of your home then with a new garage door? Once again Remodeling Magazine placed garage door replacement as one of this year's top choices in home upgrades as it has great curb appeal, adds home security, and has a high return on investment.
Garage doors that face the street take up quite a bit of visual real estate on your home. If the doors are outdated, in poor shape, or clash with your style of house, replacing them can significantly enhance the curb appeal of your home. Seek out a style of garage door that compliments the architectural features, materials, and colors of the rest of the house. Also consider adding other accents like pergolas, sconces, and other decorative elements to accompany your new garage door and further enhance home curb appeal.
The garage door is often a project overlooked when making a spring “To-Do List”. Like most products the garage door has come a long way in the past few years, and with that has come many new options. Today's doors are stronger, more secure and better insulated, and they require much less maintenance than their predecessors. Never before have garage doors come in such a range of materials, styles, colors and window treatments.
For homeowners looking to sell in the near future, not only is a new garage door visually appealing to potential buyers, but it is also one of those major home improvements with a high return on its investment. The annual Cost vs. Value Survey that put garage door replacement as a top choice for home remodeling found that installing a mid-range to upscale garage door resulted in an 88.4% and 82.5% return on investment.
