A Garage Door Upgrade Adds Value to Your Home

Your garage door typically provides one of the first impressions of your home for passersby. Intentionally or not, your garage door stands out and makes a statement about your property. A garage door upgrade adds to the aesthetics appeal, while adding value to your home, which, in turn, adds to the overall look and feel of your neighborhood.


Garage Door Upgrades Keep Your Home Looking New

Whether you plan to live out your days in your current home, or plan to upgrade or downsize in the future, you want your home to look and feels its best. One way to keep your home looking new is with a garage door upgrade. An upgrade not only boosts home value, but can add to the energy efficiency and help keep your garage comfortable year-round.


Remodel Magazine states that garage-related remodel projects compare well with other major home remodel projects. Many of last year’s highest-scorers were for work done on the exterior of the home. According to their 2016 Cost vs. Value Report, “replacing the garage door on a home is one of the top five home improvement projects that generates the highest return on investment at resale.” This is in-line with academic research and real estate professionals’ comments touting the value of projects that promote “curb appeal.” In as many as 30 markets across the U.S., homeowners could expect a 100% return on their investment of replaced or upgraded garage doors. Last year’s No. 3 bang-for-the-buck project, “the midscale garage door replacement saw a return of 91.5%, while a steel entry door replacement (last year’s No. 1) offered a 91.1% return, and the upscale garage door replacement offered 90.1%.”


The benefits of upgrading your garage door affect everything from your comfort to your wallet. Consider these benefits:

  • Adds to the overall value of your home.
  • Provides “curb appeal” giving your entire property an upgraded look and fresh feel.
  • Door options for greater energy efficiency that will save you money.
  • If you choose an insulated door you will add comfort to your garage all year long.
