Your garage door says a lot about your home. If it’s fresh, clean and new looking, it says that you care. But if it’s chipped, cracked or hung unevenly, it’s more than unattractive — it’s potentially dangerous. Creating an eyesore or a risk magnet won’t exactly give your house that special sense of curb appeal that you’re going for.
Garage door replacements are more cost-effective than many other home improvement projects. With an average 85 percent cost recoup figure, you can get more than a fair return on the money you spend. If you’re considering selling your home, this is an upgrade to make. That said, it isn’t always financially feasible to do a full garage door replacement.
What happens when your door has seen better days but your home improvement budget doesn’t have room for a brand-new one? Take a look at some of the ways that you can improve the way your door looks and works without a full replacement.
