Is upgrading your Florida garage door a smart investment?

We’ve all seen the impact a sparkling new garage door replacement can do to update the appearance of a Florida home. The addition makes for a great first impression while adding curb appeal and architectural beauty. In fact, garages of today have become the “front doors” of many suburban homes built during the last few decades. Designed for drive-right-in accessibility, many have prominent garages that occupy up to 30 percent of the front facade.

Yes, a new garage door certainly adds to the overall look of a home in many ways. So it’s not surprising that upgrading a garage door has also become a popular home improvement project. But what kind of return on investment does a beautiful new garage door give today’s Florida homeowner?

You might be surprised to learn that garage door replacement ranks very highly as a home improvement investment. According to Remodeling magazine, homeowners who replace a garage door can realize a surprising 84 percent return on investment (ROI). That’s a better ROI than a bathroom or kitchen remodel can generate, at least in terms of national averages.

In fact, of the 22 remodeling projects tracked in the 2010-2011 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report* , garage door replacement was the only improvement to record an uptick in value compared to the previous year. That’s why you need to make sure you are getting the highest quality garage doors Florida contractors have to offer!
