Home improvement projects can serve a number of purposes. For some, it’s about moving their home closer to the ideal image they have in their head. For others, energy efficiency is the driving factor. If it’s time to sell, homeowners will often look to make upgrades to draw more eyes and dollars. Lucky for you, the Overhead Door Company of Charleston has an easy solution to all three — replacing your garage door. Below, we’ve listed three quick tidbits of information on what adding a new garage door can do for your home.
What Kind of Return Can You Expect
While you may think a kitchen upgrade or bathroom remodel is where the big bucks are, the garage renovation actually sits above them both. According to Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2019 list, a replacement garage door is the most valuable project with the owner recouping more than 97% of the project cost. You read that right, Overhead Door Company’s doors are so efficient that they basically pay for themselves
Did you know hundreds of dollars could be slipping through the cracks of your home each year? If you don’t have a properly-insulated door, your home’s heating and cooling system could be working unnecessarily hard to maintain your desired temperature.
That’s why we recommend our Thermacore® series of doors. With several panel designs to choose from, these doors offer design flexibility, durability, and thermal efficiency that will help keep your home comfortable in cold or hot climates. It can also push that 97% return on investment even higher.
Boost Your Curb Appeal
Think of your garage door like you would a handshake when you are meeting someone — it’s the first thing people will notice and sets the tone for the rest of the encounter. That means if you have a run-down garage door with chipped paint, dents, or (*gulp*) missing panels, it can distract from all the other good things your home has going on. Adding a new door can make your home stick out in a good way from everyone else on the block and shows potential buyers that you have a keen eye for detail.
