Many people have begun working on home renovation projects now that spring has arrived. You may be planning to upgrade your backyard patio area or spruce up your bathrooms, but there’s another home improvement project you should consider — getting a new garage door. Installing a new door offers one of the highest rates of return on your investment! If that’s not enough to convince you, there are plenty of other benefits that come with investing in a new garage door.
Increase Your Home’s Value
If you think you might be selling your home in the near future, you should definitely consider replacing your old door with a new one. Potential buyers could see an old door and think they will have to replace it themselves in a few years. If they see a new door, they could feel comfortable knowing they won’t have to spend more money on an extra project.
Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Your garage door is often the first thing people see when they approach your home. A new garage door adds personality and flare to your home, while an old door could make your home seem out of date or dingy.
Save Money on Your Energy Bills
Many newer garage doors have the option of being insulated to keep cool air in your home during summer and warm air in during winter. If you have a living space above your garage or use your garage as a workspace, having an insulated door can help keep your energy bills low.
Older doors require more work to maintain. If you skip out on maintenance, you’re going to end up needing a new door sooner. A new garage door requires much less maintenance (and less money) to keep up. If you think about it, the money you spend on all your older door maintenance could be spent on a new door anyway.
If you’re tired of pulling up to see a drab garage door sitting at the end of your driveway, invest in a new one! But don’t settle for the other guys.
