Boosts Curb Appeal and Resale Value
By: Randy Oliver
Fall is when many people start thinking about sprucing up their homes for the holidays. For those preparing to improve the exterior of their home during this time, there’s one home improvement that instantly boosts curb appeal while offering a great return on investment: upgrading to a new garage door.
According to Remodeling Magazine, in its 2017 Cost vs. Value Report, a mid-range garage door replacement has the second highest return on investment of any home improvement project in the San Antonio area, recouping an average 92.8 percent of costs. Mid-range garage door replacement had an average job cost of $1,595 in the San Antonio area, with a resale value of $1,480, according to the report. For return on investment, this upgrade is second only to a wood deck addition.
New garage doors are the number one value among upscale improvements, recouping 91.8 percent of costs in San Antonio. Upscale garage door replacements cost an average of $3,304 in the San Antonio market, recouping $2,810 of the cost upon resale.
“Garage doors offer a great return on investment for people and can substantially improve the curb appeal of your home,” said Randy Oliver, president of Hollywood-Crawford Door Co. “There is a tremendous variety of options for new garage doors, with materials and attractive styles that enhance the value and appeal of any home.”
Each year Remodeling Magazine compares average costs for 29 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale in 99 U.S. markets. More information on the report is available at www.costvsvalue.com.
