    The article reminds us that Remodeling Magazine has named garage door replacements as a top 5 return on investments for the 7th year in a row since the survey began. The magazine’s 2017 Cost Vs Value Report list compares the average cost of 29 popular home improvement projects with the value of return towards resale. 

    How much of a return on value? The survey shows that homeowners can expect up to 85 percent returns on their investment. Some markets even show an increased value of up to 115 percent! 

    “With the housing market as competitive as it is, making a great first impression to buyers by updating an outdated garage door is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to boost resale value,”

    -Heather Meiner, Brand Manager for Overhead Door

    Your Garage Door is Worthy of the Investment

    BuilderOnline.com is watchful of the Cost vs. Value Report from Remodeling Magazine, their sister publication. These trends in remodeling projects are often tied to local real estate market conditions.

    Their research unearthed that nearly 60% of homeowners begin a remodeling project within six months of moving in. We recommend taking a look at options for a new garage door! The 2016 Cost Vs. Value Report shows that mid-range garage door remodels held 91.5% of their value, and upscale garage door remodels retained 90.1% of their investment at resale.

    In fact, in the list of mid-range home improvements, a new garage door replacement was the THIRD most valuable project. And for upscale projects, it was THE MOST valuable return. (Click the images below to see an enlarged version.)
