One question to ask yourself is: why are you looking to upgrade or remodel your home? One reason might simply be to sell it faster. You might be surprised how many people wait until they want to sell before they make the changes they have always wanted. Whatever your purpose is, now is the time to upgrade your garage door and here is why.

A new 2017 Cost vs. Value Report indicated that upgrading your garage door delivered an estimated value at home resale of just under $3,000. The study indicated an 85% return on investment, making it the number one upscale project for 2017. Not only does a beautiful new garage add curb appeal, it also gives value back to the home.

According to an article in Door + Access Systems Newsmagazine, exterior home projects deliver more value. Eight of the 10 lowest scoring projects were interior home projects.
