Summer Garage Clean Out

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Tue, Aug 18, 2015 @ 11:02 AM

It's that time again, folks. The kids are going back to school and summer is coming to an end...

It goes by so fast doesn't it? It seems like just yesterday we were giving you "Spring Cleaning Tips" and now it's time to clean out your garage from those summertime activities. We're sure you have pool toys, bikes, luggage, and various other summer items laying around your garage...but not to worry! We're giving you some tips for a summer garage clean out!


Tips For A Summer Garage Clean Out:

Utilize wall space-Any hardware or storage supply store will carry specific racks meant for certain "toys" (i.e. bikes, scooters, skateboards, golf clubs) that can be hung on your garage wall. This gets those toys off the floor and out of your way!

Bins & buckets-Invest in several clear bins to store all that summer fun. Some of those summer toys, however, won't fit in a bin. If that's the case, purchase a plastic bucket with rope handles. This stores the item and makes it easy to find, too!

Tip: Consider color coding your bins/buckets according to season (green for spring, yellow for summer, orange for fall, blue for winter) to easily organize toys, equipment, decorations, etc.

Garage sale-Now is a great time to do an "end of summer" garage sale. If you need some tips, we've got ya covered! Take a look at our Garage Sale Tips.

Decor-Keep in mind as you put those summer toys away that you will soon be getting out Fall/Winter holiday decorations (yep, that will be here before we know it, too)! You may want to bring those decorations towards the front of you attic or storage space to keep you from having to search and drag them around.

Good luck with your summer garage clean out!

How To Increase Your Home's ROI: Part Two

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Tue, Aug 04, 2015 @ 05:21 PM

If you read Part One of our "How To Increase Your Home's ROI" then you're expecting to find out what the "surprising ROI generator" is...

Well, you're in luck! Here it is:

According to the 2014 Cost VS. Value Survey, "The approximate $2,800 cost for an upscale garage door replacement delivered an estimated value at sale of $2,315, equating to an 82.9 percent return on investment.The typical $1,534 cost for a mid-range garage door replacement had an estimated value at sale of $1,283, or 83.7 percent of the original cost. Of all projects that cost less than $5,000, a garage door replacement ranks #2 and #3 on the list of projects that deliver the most value at resale. Ranking #1 is a mid-range (steel) entry door replacement."

We told you it might surprise you!

For many houses, a garage door is the largest exterior feature and one of the first things you see if you're in a street facing home. So not only does a garage door fit under the popular "maintenance improvement" category (see Part One), but it is also considered a "facelift" for your home (and a typically inexpensive one, at that)!numbers-money-calculating-calculation

So if you're considering a remodel, but are wondering how to increase your home's ROI, don't forget about your garage door. Replacing it could really pay off (literally)! If you would like to meet with someone to discuss your options, or need help determining which door/style will generate the most ROI, schedule a free design consultation with us! Or, in the meantime, you can virtually transform the look of you home using our visualization tool.

How To Increase Your Home's ROI: Part One

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Tue, Aug 04, 2015 @ 05:14 PM

If you are even considering doing home improvements, taking ROI into account beforehand is a wise decision. What will you make your money back on? Will spending this much over improve my home? How should I prioritize my remodel? These questions and more will be answered as we discuss how to increase your home's ROI.

According to Remodeling Magazine (http://www.remodeling.hw.net/) you're less likely to recoup your investment in a major kitchen or bathroom remodel than you are to get back what you spend on basic home maintenance such as new siding. Surprising, isn't it? This is because home buyers are afraid of maintenance costs. They don't want to move in and have to replace a roof or repair the siding. So, believe it or not, you may make more money back on simpler improvements.


Location, Location, Location

It seems cliché, but it's true! The improvements you make to your home, and the corresponding ROI, are often dependent on your location. For example, you would not want to put a $3,000 kitchen sink in a $150,000 home. It doesn't make sense, you wouldn't see a return. Additionally, in most areas, kitchen and bathroom remodels see over 100% return, due to a couple of factors:

1. These are the most expensive areas of a home in terms of construction.

2. These are the areas where people generally spend the most time.

What Should You Choose?

So, when remodeling, what should you choose? This is largely dependent upon when you see yourself moving. If you think you'll be there awhile, choose to remodel with things you love (within reason, of course), or colors that go with your current decor. However, if you plan on moving soon, choose neutral colors and traditional looks that would typically satisfy the majority of people.

There's another home improvement feature that easily generates ROI that may also surprise you... ...but you have to take a look at Part 2 to see what it is!
