Does a new garage door increase home value?

The short answer? Yes. The garage door is the largest entrance to your home and the first thing many people see when they visit. Your garage door was built to make an impression and tie the exterior of your home together. A beautiful garage door means a beautiful house.

The garage door is not only a large part of your home, but it can boost your home’s resale value, too. It consistently tops Remodeling Magazine’s list of home updates that provide the most value when selling — in fact, garage door replacement ranked #1 on the list two years in a row.

About 94% of a new door cost is recouped once the house is sold.

Curb appeal and first impressions play a huge role when prospective buyers visit a home. If they see a tidy, put-together exterior, they immediately begin to form positive thoughts about the house (and may be willing to pay more.) According to, if it’s the opposite: “That is, driving up and seeing a dilapidated garage door or a house in need of a paint job — has the reverse effect: Buyers immediately start to downgrade what they are willing to pay for the house.”

According to, garage door replacements and manufactured stone veneer are the only two projects that get a return on investment of 90% or higher. (The next highest ROI is a minor kitchen remodel at a much lower percentage — just 71%.) “The remarkable return means that a garage door replacement still virtually pays for itself, and that no other remodeling project delivers better value,” the publication said.

And unlike most home renovations, a new garage door can be installed quickly. After ordering, most installations take just a single afternoon. And you’ll immediately notice your home’s elevated curb appeal!

In addition to upgrading the cosmetics of your door, a new garage door has practical functions. New doors are insulated better to regulate the temperature of your garage and keep noise out. There are also more safety features on newer doors that’ll protect your home and family.
