It might not feel like it outside, but rest assured, spring is coming! Although Baton Rouge and New Orleans has not been as cold as our northern friends, there have been many days when it was necessary to park in the garage or wear warmer clothing.

Although American Garage Door Louisiana can replace or revamp a garage door any time of year, spring is generally a time that people start thinking about home improvements. We are based in Mandeville, LA, but we serve residential and commercial properties statewide.

If you are one of those people who like to weigh the cost versus the value prior to doing any type of home improvement projects, we’ve got you covered. In a recent magazine article released by Remodeling Magazine, the average cost of a garage door replacement in the state of Louisiana is approximately $2,838, with the resale value being $2,179. That’s a recovery cost of about 76.8%, one of the highest of all remodeling and home improvement projects you can think of.

See the results, here:


You can also see that across the nation, the replacement of a garage door is very rewarding in relation to the value of your home. This Cost vs. Value report is done annually through Remodeling Magazine in conjunction with the NAR National Association of Realtors. This latest report was published in January of 2015.

Even if you are not planning on selling your home in New Orleans or Mandeville, installing a new garage door can simply make your home a lot more valuable to you, the homeowner! Aside from adding curb appeal, it can make your life more convenient to upgrade to an automatic garage door if you have been using the manual method of lifting it up by hand, or because you have been parking in the driveway under a carport.

The garage door showroom in Mandeville has hundreds of different styles, garage door manufacturers and materials to choose from, to complement any exterior décor of your home. We understand you want a garage door that is both functional and visually appealing, so our garage door technicians and installers can help you determine which one is best fitting for your needs.

Stop by American Garage Door in Mandeville, LA, today or let us come to your home for an estimate.  It may be more affordable than you realize, plus your spring home improvements will get accomplished.
