Increasing the value of your home

The recent hardships experienced by consumers are a direct results of the economic climate in South Africa. In fact, these tough time are experienced all around the world. For many, their homes will be the most valuable asset they own.

Increasing the value of your home is important as it adds to the value of your investment. Quite often one can spend a certain amount, and your home’s value will increase by two or three times that amount. Think about additions like an extra bedroom, a swimming pool or perhaps a kitchen remodel.

In this post, I would like to discuss how a upgraded garage door installation can increase the value of your home. The garage door does not get mentioned often when people are talking about remodeling, and this is a big mistake.

The garage door is one of the first features anyone sees when viewing a property. In fact, the garage door plays a pivotal role in creating a great first impression. Working with a reliable garage door installer can make a difference in that first impression.

While the exterior of your garage door helps in creating that ‘Wow’ moment, the interior plays almost as big a role.

Why the garage door?

Quite simple really. It is one of the easiest and fastest ways to improve the exterior of your home. Painting your entire home can be very consuming, and could take weeks to complete. New windows and doors are usually very expensive.

A new garage door installation will draw the eye and create a great first impression. It is also a selling point that your real estate agent can use to lure in more buyers.

A garage door is important in terms of security, but also in practicality. Keep this in mind next time you have a little windfall, and you want to increase the value of your home.

Special thanks to the guys at for providing me with some ideas for this post.
