By | Before and After, Investment, New Garage Door, New Install | No Comments

Who ever thinks about garage door ROI? Most of us slap a bland color on a flat garage door and call it a day. It’s not our fault.

You get excited because you don’t have to worry about swinging a door in and out to conserve space, but then you realize you can only have one door open at a time. Not to…
