Kitchen revamps, it's time to step down. The limelight is on exterior makeovers!

Let's face it—home improvement projects can be financially demanding. That's why it's imperative to carefully weigh the potential return on investment before moving forward with renovation. The 2023 report demonstrates that homeowners can expect to recoup a staggering 102.7% of their garage door replacement costs. In simpler terms, for every dollar spent on a new garage door from Overhead DoorTM Brand, the house value typically increases by more than the amount invested. In comparison, kitchen remodels cost on average six times more than garage door replacements and only recoup 85% of their investment. The exceptional return on investment of replacing a garage door positions it as one of the most effective means to boost your home's curb appeal and bolster its financial status.

The Cost vs. Value report continues to indicate that exterior overhauls outperform interior renovations when it comes to property sales. Garage door replacements specifically have ranked in the top five best home improvement projects for 13 consecutive years. However, this year in particular is especially remarkable as it was the first time a garage door replacement has had an ROI of more than 100%.

“The impact a home's curb appeal has on resale value cannot be underestimated.,” Overhead Door™ Brand Marketing Manager Brandon Bolin said. “In an incredibly competitive housing market, it’s crucial to find innovative ways to distinguish your properties, attract potential buyers and maximize your investment’s value. The ROI supports the premise that investing in a high-quality garage door is not merely an expense but an investment in the home's overall worth.” 

Curb Appeal: The Gateway to Impressive Resale Value

The old adage says you never get a second chance to make a first impression. The same is true for when prospective buyers arrive to tour a home or attend an open house. With garage doors making up the majority of your first impression of a home, the garage door plays a pivotal role in shaping that initial perception. A weathered or shabby garage door can cast an unfavorable light on a home’s exterior and is a big turn-off for home buyers before even stepping foot in the home or clicking on the listing online.

Undeniably, installing a new garage door can profoundly transform your home's facade, instantly boosting its curb appeal. Modern aesthetics combined with top-tier materials can leave an indelible impression, igniting the curiosity of prospective buyers to discover what's inside the home. This initial positive impression encourages them to commence their tour of the property with a favorable predisposition.
