Garage doors rank among bathroom and kitchen renovations as one of the top investments you can make in your home. A recent study by Remodeling Magazine found that replacing a basic door with an upgraded one returned an average of 83.7% on original cost, placing it among the best, and most cost-effective, improvements for yielding bang for your buck. But even if you’re not selling anytime soon, a new garage door can transform your home’s look in one fell swoop. Consider this: Garage doors take up as much as 60% of a home’s facade. Changing it out can prove as dramatic as replacing siding, shutters, or paint color, but at a fraction of the cost and effort. It’s tempting to simply swap out your current door for a similar, or standard, one that’s newer and cleaner. To maximize the benefit of your investment, though, consider a vibrant color, or a garage door featuring an intricate or dramatic design. Not sure how a bold choice will look?
