First Impressions Matter

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. 

Excellent Return on Investment 

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.

A Material and Style for Every Home

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.
