When you drive up to a home that you have never visited before, what’s the first thing that you notice? For most people, it’s the garage door, which serves as the focal point of the entire house. Unfortunately, too many homes’ garage doors lack any real pizzazz – the house may be pretty, but the garage door isn’t anything to write home about. If you’re trying to sell your home, this could limit your curb appeal and home’s ‘wow’ factor. On the other hand, replacing your garage door to something that’s eye-catching and attractive may have the exact opposite effect.
How Your Garage Door May Be Bringing Your Home Down
When was the last time your garage door was replaced? If it has been more than a decade, you should perform a thorough assessment. Is your garage door functioning, as it should? Is the paint chipped and cracked? Is there any visible garage door damage, such as dents or broken areas? If so, all of these things are sure to affect how a potential buyer feels about your home and its value.
Improving Your Garage Door, Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal
But upgrading to a new and improved garage door that is as unique as the rest of your house is, you can improve your home’s curb appeal, and may even improve its value as well. A garage door can have an effect on a home’s appraisal value. Replacing your garage door is an easy decision for three key reasons: First, if your garage door is outdated, it may not only be unattractive, but downright dangerous – replacing the garage door can make it safer for everyone. Second, replacing the garage door is the easiest and fastest way to immediately make your home’s façade more attractive. Third, a garage door replacement is one of the least expensive ways that you can make big changes to your home. Choose a garage door that is of bold color, is of a unique material, offering an eye-catching design, has strong security features, or that is energy efficient.
