Improve Your Home By Replacing Garage Doors

If you’re in the market for a new garage door because your existing garage door has fallen into disrepair you’ll want to consider upgrading to garage doors that will not only improve curb appeal but doors that will also increase the value of your home. When most people think about home improvement, they’re usually thinking about a kitchen or bathroom remodel. But did you know that replacing garage doors is one of the best returns on investment? Yes, dollar for dollar upgrading even a single garage door has a better return than revamping your kitchen.

We understand that the costs associated with installing a new garage door are a fraction of the cost of remodeling your kitchen, which may lead you to believe that the return on investment is not that great. The reality is first impressions matter and since your garage door makes up as much as 40% of the facade of your home the improvement is duly noticed by would-be buyers. And, if your home doesn’t have an enclosed garage but instead has a carport, enclosing your garage and adding automatic garage doors will greatly increase the value of your home. So, if you’re thinking about improving the curb appeal of your home and you don’t want to pay the hefty price of a kitchen remodel, you might want to consider replacing your garage doors with brand new steel garage doors.

    Garage Door Materials

    One of the first considerations when choosing a garage door is the type of material your door is made from. While wood offers the widest variety of design options and works well in our climate, it’s more expensive than steel and aluminum. And, for a more modern look consider tempered glass in an aluminum frame.

    Types Of Garage Doors

    The most common type of garage door installed today are sectional garage doors that roll up and down on tracks. Another garage door type that’s getting traction lately are sliding, barn door style garage doors the slide open from the side. Swing-out double doors are another option for a unique appearance.

    Garage Door Styles

    One of the challenges most homeowners have is determining which style of garage door compliments their home. For example, if you have a Spanish colonial style home, you wouldn’t want to choose an arched traditional garage door with windows, rather you might want to choose a wooden garage door with iron hinges.

    Garage Door Costs

    Custom wood garage doors are the most expensive and can run you anywhere from $1000 to $10,000 dollars installed. Steel garage doors range from $300 to $3000 dollars, and glass doors with an aluminum frame can range from $1500 to $3000 dollars. Additionally, a pergola over garage doors range from $5000 to $8000 dollars.

Extension springs act as guides and are not under tremendous pressure. Contact G & G Garage Door for help with all your garage door maintenance needs.
