Switch out your garage door

Upgrading your current garage door to a newer steel model could earn you a 75.7 percent return on investment -- roughly $1,135 on a $1,500 job. Whether you do it yourself or call in a pro, save a few bucks by using the existing motorized door opener, if possible. You don't have to go all-out to get a good return. Opt for an un-insulated, embossed steel model with a 10-year warranty, and replace the tracks when you replace the door to make sure the warranty stands.
