How a Custom Garage Door Can Increase Your Home’s Value

Our homes are our castles, and keeping them looking their best is the job of every weekend handyman or handywoman. Curb appeal is just one aspect of wanting your home to look its best, but pride in your home is the real reason behind doing the work that it takes to make your home shine.


One of the top home improvement projects is investing in custom garage doors. It is the one aspect of home improvement that can guarantee up to a 75% return on your investment. Plus it can change the entire look of the front of your home — not only making it more attractive to the owner, but also to potential buyers — which can raise the potential value of your home.

Your garage can take up to 40% of the room at the front of your home, making it a big aspect of the overall look of your house. Garage doors today come in nearly every shape, size and style. They are made from a variety of materials to suit your taste and needs, including steel, aluminum, wood and vinyl. A custom garage door can be used to make a statement or to just blend in with the rest of your outdoor home decor.

There are many advantages to investing in a new garage door to complement your home. Make sure to take all of these things into account when you are considering a new garage door for your home.

Curb Appeal

The immediate impression that anyone will have of your home comes from the picture it sets on the first glance of the front of your house. If you are looking to sell your home in the future, a new garage door is one of the important features that buyers are interested in. Make a statement with a bright color or interesting design that will set your home apart.


Energy Savings

The newer styles of custom garage doors are often insulated, adding extra protection to your home. Making sure that your garage area is properly sealed from the outside elements can make a huge difference in energy savings. Any cracks or drafts that are allowed to get in can affect your energy efficiency. Keeping a constant temperature in your garage is not only a matter of comfort, but also helps to prevent any build up of moisture and dirt that can cause problems with mold and mildew.

Security & Safety

Garage doors today are made from the finest reinforced materials, helping to keep your family safe and secure. Most doors come with their own movement sensors that will stop the door movement if there is anything in the way, preventing accidents. Many doors also have a smartphone feature now that will allow you to access your garage with just one touch to the screen. Updates in security technology can leave you feeling secure in the knowledge that no one will be able to gain access easily to your home.
