Hi. I’m Tamara Day. I’m the host of Bargain Mansions on the DIY Network. When we get a new front door or garage doors on a house, it completely transforms the look of the house from old and dingy, to new and fresh and clean. It also makes it look safer and much more desirable to a new home buyer.
We’ve looked at lots of companies for garage doors and – hands down – Overhead Door Company was the company we chose. They’re an awesome company that I love working with because their doors are fantastic and their people are amazing to work with. It always comes together beautifully.
The selection at Overhead Door Company is awesome. Everything from standard to perfectly custom is available and it’s really easy to see exactly what you’re going to get. When I go out to their showroom, their computer system is amazing, it’s perfectly seamless, I can really see exactly what I’m going to get and when it shows up, it is exactly what I expected. The install is incredible. It moves perfectly smooth – it’s really perfectly seamless.
I’ve worked with Overhead Door Company for lots of projects, not just the show, but our personal residence as well as several of our rental properties. It’s really fantastic.
Remodeling Magazine recently published their Cost Versus Value Report for 2016. In it, they compare the average cost of a number of remodeling projects with the value retained at resale in 100 US markets. They also list the difference between projects on a mid-range scale and upscale level.
Garage Door Replacement
According to their national data, Garage Door Replacement projects in the mid-range scale cost an average of $1,652. Of that investment, $1,512 is recovered at resale, making the return on the investment a major 91.5%.
In an upscale project Garage Door Replacement projects cost $3,140, of which $2,830 is recouped at resale. That’s another return just over 90%.
These numbers indicate that a new garage door can positively impact the sale of a home and indicate that they are well worth the investment of time and money to obtain.
(Note: you can also break down the trends into nine predefined regions other levels of detail.)
