Clopay’s most recent blog raves about how new garage doors end up being an investment in the long run. “Rising home prices, curb appeal, and energy efficiency contributed to gains in the projected return on investment for homeowners who are remodeling with an eye toward resale, according to Remodeling magazine’s 2016 Cost vs. Value report.” The report went over a bunch of home improvement projects that people take on and what generated the biggest bang for your buck.
Out of the top five projects, four of them focused on the exterior of the home, which makes sense, since it’s what people see first when they pull up.
When investing in a new garage door, the report says that mid-range and upscale garage door upgrades can yield a return on investment of over 90% (nationwide average). As a general rule, the simpler and lower-cost the project, the bigger its cost-value ratio.

Broken spring on garage door: I called late in the afternoon and they were out the next morning, called when they were on their way. They replaced the spring and greased the joints and door works great!
*The Cost vs. Value report is based on an annual survey by Remodeling magazine that asks realtors in 100 metro markets around the country to estimate what specific home remodeling projects would provide a high return on investment at resale. The top 5 projects in the study all cost less than $5,000.
