A key aspect of your home that you might not have considered as improving the value of your home are garage doors. When you think about it, the garage door is aesthetically one of the first things a potential homebuyer will see when they come to view your property. Since a garage door can potentially take up to 40% to 45% of a property’s features, it cannot be underestimated how important a new or refurbished garage door is to the value of your property!


Kerb appeal

A stylishly unique door, such as those found here, instantly improves the kerb appeal of your house; essentially the first impression people have of your home upon first viewing. This has a beneficial impact upon the visual appeal of your home and reinforces the overall quality of the property. Picking a colour scheme which complements the accompanying exterior of your house is a great way to create a professional, sophisticated look. If you want to turn your garage door into even more of a statement, you can pick bold colours that make it stand out to prospective buyers and increase the overall value of the property.

Safety and security

The simple fact is that the safer your home is, the greater the value of the property. Durable, robust, modernised garage doors will ensure the security of your home, while refurbished garage doors can also ensure safety and security is properly accomplished. Modern technology now allows you toconnect your smartphone to your garage door for added security as well. Garage doors that are newer offer infinitely better security than older, more unreliable iterations because they feature fresh security locks, measures, and seals to keep you and your property safe.

Energy efficient

Newly fitted garage doors, such as those provided here, help to insulate your property and reduces the need for internal heating. This kind of energy efficiency is very attractive to prospective buyers and increases the value of your home. This not only saves you money in the future but also makes your property more environmentally friendly.


Homebuyers are always looking for fresh ways to improve convenience when it comes to purchasing a new property. Remotely operated systems allow this to become a reality and are a fantastic way to increase the value of your property. People want ease of use and comfort from a home that provides improved accessibility when compared to what they had before. This is therefore a solid reason to upgrade or replace your garage door in order to improve property value.

Return on investment

Alongside upgrading shabby windows, fitting new flooring, boosting worn landscaping, and switching up colour schemes, a change in garage doors represents an excellent return on investment when it comes time to sell your property. Research has indicated that at least 76.9% of the cost involved in replacing your garage door will be recouped once your home is sold. The more modern and durable the material used in accomplishing this, the longer the garage door will last; and the better the value of your property.
