Improve the Curb Appeal of Your Home with a New Garage Door

Published on October 18, 2020

Take a moment and go out to your street and look at your home. Now glance at your neighbours’ homes. While doing this, pay attention to how the garage doors on the homes affect the appearance and curb appeal of the homes. Garage doors should enhance the overall look and feel of the home.

During your trip outside, if you noticed your garage door didn’t stand out and add to the curb appeal of your home, then perhaps a new Garage Door is inorder. Replacing your garage door with a new Richards-Wilcox Landmark garage door instantly gives your home a much-needed facelift.

As an added bonus, you can recoup as much as 98%* of the costs should you ever decide to sell your home. That’s not a bad return on your investment in a new garage door!

How Do Garage Doors Affect the Curb Appeal of Homes?

Garage doors take up about a third of the front of the house. So, you want to make sure your garage door is harmonious with the other exterior elements of your home. If they are in contrast with each other, home’s appearance is not balanced.

To balance the curb appeal of your home, you need to choose a garage door in a color that complements the other exterior elements of your home. You could even add some exterior lighting to show off your new garage door and make it the focal point of the front of the home.

Garage Doors Draw Attention

When you look at the exterior of houses, your eyes will almost always be drawn to the garage door. When the garage door is dented, damaged, or even falling off its tracks, it gives a bad impression of the property. Ignoring these issues does not make them disappear or go away.

Your neighbours may even start to comment on what an “eyesore” your home is becoming. This will most certainly effect the value of your property.
