Have you been thinking about selling your home? If so, one of the things you need to consider is the curb appeal of your home. When people drive up to your home or look at it from the street they have an initial reaction to what they see. This is commonly referred to as “curb appeal.” If your home doesn’t look good externally then people are not going to be as inclined to go inside and see if they want to buy it, and if they do decide they want to buy it you won’t be able to get as much money for it because they will have to fix up the outside of the home.
So, where does your garage door fit into this you might be asking. Your garage door takes up, in most cases, 2/3 of the exterior of your home. So it is one of the first things people see. You would be surprised at how much of a difference having a new working garage door can make to the overall appeal to your home. So, if you are looking to sell your home then we would highly recommend spending the money to install a new garage door. It will make your home more appealing and you will get more money for it!
Even if you aren’t thinking of selling your home it can be worth it to upgrade your door. If you haven’t gotten a new door in the last ten years then it is time. There are typically big advances in garage door technology every decade, so it is always best to get a new one at that time.
