How to Add Value to Your Home with Exterior Upgrades

After looking over a number of 2014 homeowner surveys, one trend that stuck our is that homeowners are investing more into their home's exterior. It makes sense; curb appeal can’t be underestimated, as it is one of the biggest selling points for potential homebuyers. Especially considering that over 60% of builders cited it as the most important factor expressed by their customers.

So what home exterior upgrades will get you the most return for your money?

No surprise, garage and entry doors are consistently in the top 5, according to numerous cost vs. value reports.

This is because of two simple reasons:

  1. They are affordable
  2. They make a big impression

Pretty straightforward, isn’t it? The cost to value ratio is so good, in fact, that homeowners can expect to recoup an average of over 83% of their investment when it comes time to sell their home!

So, which garage doors are getting the most attention?

Black is in.

New advances in thermal paint technology have allowed designers to start incorporating black into garage door designs. Previously, black paint came with the added complication of excess heat absorption causing high surface temperatures. Now, you can get a classy black look without your garage door being hot to the touch.

Classic looks.

Timeless designs with natural looking wood grain, combined with the durability and functionality of modern garage doors creates a perfect synergy between young and old. Incorporating short panel designs, colored perfectly to match the exterior of your home, can create a whole new look that will have your neighbors turning their heads!
