Most people probably don't think about replacing their garage door until it's absolutely necessary, putting it off until the exterior is dented and dingy or the door stops working altogether. A statement garage door can create serious value for a home's exterior and it probably costs less than you think.
Whether you're looking to up your home's resale value or simply revamp your home's style.
Did you know that a first impression is formed within seven seconds? The first thing a potential home buyer sees is the exterior, so a great first impression is critical in persuading the individual to see more. A new, well-crafted front-facing garage door adds instant curb appeal to any home and is sure to make a lasting impression.
Garage door replacements claimed the #2 spot for the highest return on investment (ROI) according to the 2020 Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling magazine and the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Since the first time garage door replacements were included in the Cost vs. Value Report in 2010, they have ranked among the top five projects. The information from this year’s study indicates that U.S. homeowners who chose to increase curb appeal with a garage door replacement project, on average, saw up to a 94.5 percent ROI at resale. In select markets, that number reached as high as 132.7 percent.
Purchasing a new garage door requires homeowners to weigh many variables to complement their home, such as the best overall design, desired hardware, window arrangements and finish, and the list continues.
If your garage door is greatly damaged, if you back into it, or even if it is a very old door that seems shaky when it moves, maybe a section of the door just looks rusty or was scratched accidentally.
If it is just one panel or maybe two and just seems to be a surface level, then you probably only need to replace the panel. If you aren't sure, then we recommend calling your local garage door company and they can send someone to take a look at it.
We recommend doing this if it seems like more than just a scratch. If someone hits the door and leaves a dent and the damage only appears to be one a panel or two, then you should be able to replace them.

A damaged door is dangerous and useless to you anyways and an old door can look bad and be just as dangerous.
