Garage door installations and replacements are not cheap endeavors and getting the most value out of your hard earned dollar can go a long way in improving your home’s value and functionality. Paying a little bit more upfront can greatly raise your overall dollar to value ratio and save you major headaches in the long run. If you go about the process right, your garage door can pay for itself and then some with the rise in your property’s value as time passes. Garage door replacements are one of the top four home improvements when it comes to return on investment (ROI) coming in at 83.7 percent according to Remodeling magazine in 2014.
There are a number of ways outside of the ROI that garage doors can increase the amount of money you keep in your wallet. Older garage doors are usually not insulated and can let heat in the summer and cold air in during the winter which can greatly increase your cooling and heating costs which will help your investment in your new garage door pay for itself in an accelerated fashion.
An older garage door can also be a security risk if it isn’t functioning properly. A malfunctioning garage door can leave your home and family exposed to invaders and the risk of burglary or worse. Getting a fortified garage door installed will greatly reduce the inherent risk most garage doors carry and leave you resting easy when your and your loved ones lay your heads down for the night.
As you can see from the brief summary above, there are many ways that your garage door investment can pay for itself and then some. With the added functionality benefits of a high end modern garage door added to your home, you can rest easy, save money and watch your property’s value climb!
