Home Garage Door Styles and Which Is Best for You!

The central aspect of being a homeowner is making sure that you maintain the value of your home or property.

You can upkeep your home curb appeal nicely; you can renovate your rooms, you can upkeep your roof working correctly. Indeed, there are many things you can do to upkeep or increase the value of your home.

Part of contributing to that task is ensuring you install a quality garage door with craftsmanship that is built to last for decades. Besides, you have to invest in a garage door that increases the curb appeal and value of your home.

Bankrate, a financial advising agency, recently (August 29, 2019) wrote an article about “6 Home Renovations That Return the Most at Resale.” A garage door replacement throws the following numbers:

  • Average cost: $3,611
  • Average resale value: $3,520
  • Cost recouped: 97.5 percent

As you see, remodeling garage doors is a worthy home improvement project. Most homeowners recoup 97.5% of the cost at resale value for their initial investment on a new garage door. 

The estimate for this job is based on the cost of removing and disposing of an existing 16-by-7-foot garage door (or two-car garage door) and replacing it with a new four-section garage door with heavy-duty galvanized steel tracks, assuming the motorized garage door opener is compatible.

This garage replacement will get you back almost every dollar you spent on it if you sell your house.
