If you’re thinking about what the best way to enhance your home is, we’ve got some exciting news to share.

Why Are Garage Doors Such a Hot Ticket This Year

Just to give you a bit of context, this year’s Cost vs. Value Report evaluated the average costs for 23 different remodeling projects and compared them to the value these projects retain at resale across 150 U.S. markets. This year, exterior improvements have once again proven to be the champions of home renovations, offering the highest ROIs. And we’re sure you can already guess what’s leading the charge: replacing your garage door, which can fetch an astounding 194% ROI on average, nationally. That’s even better than other popular updates like new entry doors and adding stylish stone veneer. It’s also important to note the ROI on garage doors saw a notable jump this year, doubling in value compared to 2023.

In our current market, where buyers are navigating high-interest rates and leveraging their home equity, making your home stand out with something like a stunning new garage door can be a pivotal element. Especially for those discerning buyers looking for a move-up, a top-notch garage door could be the detail that clinches the deal and seals the sale.

More Than Just a Door—It’s a Lifestyle & Curb Appeal Upgrade
