Improve the Curb Appeal of your Home with a New Garage Door

There are a lot of things that you can do to make your home more attractive to buyers and that offer excellent return on your investment. There are also a lot of home improvement projects that are not only extremely expensive, but that might actually turn buyers away. They also won’t pay back anywhere near what you paid for them when it comes time to sell your home.

One of the least expensive home improvement projects that you can undertake that also has a very high return on investment is a new garage door. Not only will you get back a big chunk of the cost of a new door when you sell your home, a new garage door will also improve the curb appeal of your home and possibly make it easier to sell.

The garage door is the largest exterior feature on most homes so it’s one of the first things people see. Modern garage doors are now available in a variety of materials including wood, synthetic wood, steel, vinyl, and aluminum and glass. They come in a variety of styles to match the architecture of just about any home. Many garage doors are available with insulation. That’s important in Calgary if you’ve turned your garage into a living space or there’s a bedroom above your garage.

A high end garage door costs in the area of $3000. That’s not a lot compared to a kitchen renovation. These days the ROI for a top of the line garage door is – drum roll please, almost 84%. Not only will that new garage door improve the value of your home, it could influence a potential buyer’s decision whether or not to buy your home.
