The average tax return in the united states is $3,050.00 according the IRS. While we can all think of a lot of ways to spend this money, according to a survey done by Credit Karma, 73% of American taxpayers plan to spend this money on smart financial goals, including: building up their emergency fund, paying down debt, and savings towards retirement. According to “Remodeling”, a magazine in the construction industry, a new garage door is another great way to spend your tax refund. According to Remodeling’s Cost Vs. Value Report, garage door replacement is the number 1 ranked home improvement for increasing your homes value, with a 98.3% cost recouped rate.
On top of being a great investment for your homes value, here are some other reasons to consider using your tax refund on a new garage door:
Homes with new garage doors sell more quickly. A new garage door will not only increase your property’s curb side appeal, it will also increase the value of your home.
A new garage door will improve the appearance of your home. Modern garage doors have significantly improved their looks when compared to the last generation of overhead doors. A new garage door can make your home stand out from the pack.
New Garage Doors are Better Insulated
If you heat your garage, the new garage doors with R-16 insulation ratings can reduce your heating and cooling cost significantly over older door models. If you are someone who uses your garage as a work area, you can also increase your comfort with a better insulated overhead door.
Security is the most important concern for homeowners. New garage doors have much better security than old doors, including new features like rolling-code opening. Rolling-codes means that the code your remote uses to open your door change each time it it used. This prevents someone from being able to open you door by stealing you openers code.
