Can Replacing Your Garage Door Increase the Value of Your Home?

Are you considering selling your home? If so, you probably have already considered what steps you can take to get the most money out of your investment. Most sellers do not want to sink too much more money into a home that they plan to sell, but there are some home improvements that can add value. One of these is replacing an old garage door.

So why would a new garage door add more value than adding a spa or other improvement to your home? Mainly, it is due to curb appeal. There isn’t a tangible value you can place on curb appeal, but it does mean more money when you sell. How a potential buyer feels about your home when they first see it is a big part of the buying decision.

According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report, replacing your garage door is one of the highest value to cost improvements you can do. Most home improvements do not retain the same value as cost. While you may just break even on the cost of a new garage door, the value is in the improved curb appeal. The garage door is often one of the first things people see when coming to your home, including potential buyers. An updated garage door can add beauty to your home, especially with all the stylish options available.

Even if you are not selling your home, you want it to retain its value and look its best. Talk to your local garage door service company about the options available to replace an old garage door. You will be amazed at the difference this small improvement can make on the curb appeal of your home.
