Replacing an outdated garage door is not only affordable, but it is one of the most prudent projects homeowners can undertake in 2015. According to Remodeling magazine's 2015 Cost vs. Value study, which compares the value of popular home renovation projects, improving the perceived value of a home is as simple as giving the garage a makeover.

The study evaluated the average $2,944 cost to replace a mid-range door with an upscale door and found a $2,429 value of the project at home sale, which equates to an 82.5 percent return, making it the second-best remodeling project in terms of return on investment (ROI) in the upscale home improvement category. In the mid-range home improvement category, the results were also positive, as the study revealed a garage door replacement delivers an average 88.4 percent ROI for homeowners. This makes mid-range garage door replacement the third most affordable home improvement project in the category and one of the best values for homeowners.
