Tax returns are starting to come back. And while it may be tempting to put that check towards a family vacation, new clothes, digital devices, or a speedboat — those aren’t the smartest investments. A new garage door, on the other hand, is just that an investment — one that gives back 97% of what you put in, on average. In fact, garage door installation has one of the best returns on investment for all home improvements, dollar for dollar.
Ask yourself how long has it been since you’ve had a new door? If it’s more than 15 years old, or shows signs of wear and tear, it might be time. This is especially true if you plan on selling the property anytime soon — or just want to improve its value and get the most enjoyment out of your home.
Have You Thought About Installing a New Garage Door Opener?
You could also upgrade your garage door opener. An opener won’t last the lifetime of a door, so you’ll need to replace it quicker than you would a door, on average. You might also consider investing in a smart garage door opener that gives you remote access through your smartphone — anywhere with an Internet connection.
