Why You Should Consider Upgrading Your Garage Door

Year after year, an upscale garage door replacement has been named one of the top return on investments (ROI) in Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report for exterior home improvement projects. Door + Access Systems (DASMA) highlighted in their Spring 2018 magazine that the return you can expect on buying an upscale garage door is especially outstanding this year – it took the number one spot (both interior AND exterior) with a 98.3% ROI! Furthermore, 46 out of the 100 individual markets used in the study showed an upscale garage door replacement to recoup more than 100 percent of its cost. In fact, the ten best Western markets averaged out to an astonishing 146.2% return. If you are preparing to sell your home in one of those ten markets, it would be a wise choice to upgrade your garage door beforehand!

With some of our more basic stamped steel doors, there are limited color and design options that are intended to work well with many styles of homes. However, our upscale doors have far more customization options and can be matched to your home in ways that cannot be achieved with your standard doors. There has been a big push towards contemporary designs in the architectural and construction industries as of late, and Northwest Door has increased our vast selection of contemporary natural wood, steel and aluminum garage doors to compliment that trend. Certain homes just beg for a contemporary style door like our Modern Tech or Modern Classic to complete the aesthetic; others can see great benefit from simply picking a wood grain door to match the siding. Take a look at the gallery below to see what we mean!
