If you really want to make a statement, go with a bold garage door. Garage doors are becoming one of the top things to change about your home when you’re getting ready to sell your house. A garage door makeover can completely change the look of your curb appeal. You wouldn’t believe the impact it has when future buyers drive by your home compared to others.
It’s actually been proven that investing in a new garage door is one of the smarter things you can do.
In one of our Clopay garage door manufacturer’s most recent blogs, they say that “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 tells you all about the home improvement project you should tackle before selling your home. It’s basically some great insight into how to get the biggest bang for your buck when selling your home.
Most of the projects focus on the exterior of the home, because let’s face it, our world is based on perception. When people pull up and see a good looking house, they’re going to have better feelings going inside than they would if it looked outdated or poorly kept.
The report says that mid-range and upscale garage doors can bring you a 90% ROI nationwide when you sell your home. It’s a lower-cost home project that has a huge return.
