Replacing windows and doors, including entry doors and garage doors, are an important investment in your home, and whether you just want to save on energy costs, or want to increase your home’s curb appeal, they’re an affordable upgrade.
According to Time.com, your garage door and your windows are both investments worth making, no just for energy savings during cold months, but also for that all-important curb appeal.
“The all-in cost of replacing an outdated garage door with an upscale steel model boosts your home’s value by 98.3% of what it costs to install. In other words, a $3,470 garage door will really set you back only $60 when you put your house on the market,” the article noted.
“If you’re going to sell [anytime soon], this gives you almost immediate return,” said home appraiser Jim Murrett.
And then there are your windows. “New windows can do a lot to freshen your home’s appearance, while also eliminating drafts that can quickly turn off prospective buyers when you decide to sell,” said Murrett.
