"Whenever I found out I was getting a new garage door, I was thrilled! It seemed silly to be so excited about something like that, but I knew it would give my home the facelift it needed. In preparation for my new door, I was inspired to clean out and organize my garage (shocking, I know) but it was time for some spring cleaning (in December)!
So, I began getting rid of junk and organizing what was left. After a weekend of work, and several trips to The Salvation Army, my garage looked pretty good! However, I felt like more could be done…
You see, I'm a 'all the way or not at all' kind of person. Like I said, my garage looked pretty good, but I wanted it to be great. Especially since my new garage door was set to arrive in 3 days! I had to figure out what would take it to the next level…and then I decided. A fresh coat of paint would make all the difference!
So I got (back) to work. First, I cleared everything away from the walls (shelves, racks, tables, etc.), then I began to sweep and scrubbed away all the dirt, dust, grease, and cobwebs (this alone made the place look new)! After cleaning, I patched any holes and nicks. I just happened to have a neutral beige color paint in storage. After thoroughly stirring, I painted the first coat of paint. To my surprise, that's all it took! I looked around, proud of my work. I was even more proud the next day when my new door was installed. It was the cherry on top of the sundae!
All of that to say, I could not be more happy with the way my garage door turned out. It adds such a new, fresh look to my home! I honestly regret not doing it sooner. However, I think that cleaning/organizing and painting the inside of my garage took it to the next level. I enjoy my new garage door even more because of the extra work I put in!"

The survey makes an annual comparison of popular home renovation projects, and breaks down the results for consumers and homeowners.

The weather is changing and pretty soon those chilly fall temps will be here to stay! Which means you need to insure your heater is working optimally and your house needs to be aligned for the dropping temperatures, BUT what about your garage? Normally the garage is forgotten about, but it can really make a difference in the temperature of your home (as well as your heating bill!)
