One of the easiest home improvements with the best return on investment is, surprisingly, replacing your garage door.
According to the recent remodeling magazines report, garage door replacements are listed at a 90.5% ROI.
So, considering that the garage door is quite a significant investment, and it takes up almost 30% of your home’s exterior, it’s essential to make sure it compliments your home’s architecture and serves you well in the long haul.
This means you need to find a suitable material that is durable and able to dress up your garage door beautifully. Here are some of our top picks;
Steel is a popular garage door material choice because it’s durable, and is both low maintenance and cost-effective.
It’s also available in a wide variety of styles, and its design flexibility is top-notch; for example, you can easily imitate the look of wood using steel garage doors.
On the downside, though, steel has low insulating power. So, if your area has varying temperatures, you’ll need to consider insulating your steel garage door.
Aluminum is yet another cost-effective option.
An amazing aspect about it is lightweight, which makes it a perfect option for wide double doors.
It can also be painted to your liking, and you can pair it with a glass install to create a beautiful clean look while also allowing entry of natural light. Like steel, you’ll also need to insulate aluminum doors.
If you’re going for a natural and authentic look, nothing beats the originality of wooden garage doors. And that’s not the only good quality of wood:
- Wood is naturally a better insulator
- It can be customized to fit different panel styles
- And it comes in a wide selection of colors and finishes
The only issue you’ll need to worry about wood doors is they require a high level of maintenance
