9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On: Garage Doors

Posted on April 27, 2016 in Home Improvement

It’s tax refund season, which means you have the opportunity to take your tax refund and put it toward a home improvement project. Using your tax refund for an update not only means a better living situation now, but a better living situation for the future and an increased home value.

In this last installment of our “9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On” series, we want to address a common element of your home that often gets overlooked: your garage doors. While they may just seem like an easy entry and exit for your car, your garage doors are an influential part of your home.


Garage doors provide protection not only for the garage itself but also for your home. Many garages are attached to the home, which means there’s a way to get inside once you’re in the garage. If your garage doors are old, damaged, or low quality, you make it easier for intruders to get through them and essentially, easier to get inside your home. Don’t let your garage doors be a weak spot.


Many times, a garage can act like its own large room that sits underneath and adjacent to the rest of your home. If this is the case, you’ll need to make sure your garage and your garage doors are properly insulated. Under insulated garage doors will allow cold air to flow in during the winter and warm air in the summer, both of which can affect the temperature of the rooms next to and on top of your garage. With environmentally friendly zero-ozone depleting Neufoam, the latest in continuous polyurethane insulating technology for garage doors, you won’t have to worry about that.


Whether you have a one-car garage or a three-car garage, your garage door is one of the main aspects of your home’s curb appeal. How would it look if you had a beautiful, updated home wth an old, boring garage door? Garage doors from Richards-Wilcox come in a variety of styles, including Classic, Premium, and Elite to complete the look of your home.

Instead of spending your tax refund on a new television or a designer purse, invest in a new garage door and increase the value of your home.
