According to Remodeling magazine's 2016 "Cost vs. Value report", a garage door replacement is placed as one of top five "home improvement projects" that creates the greatest return on an investment at resale. Furthermore, Staci Giordullo of E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University stated that "Homeowners can expect to recoup 91.5 percent of their investment in a new garage door." in 2016. This isn't new information though, it's been this way ever since the garage door became popularized back in the 1900s, and for one big reason.
Usually, the first thing you will notice about a house is the garage door, especially if it is a semi-compact home located in someplace such as a gated community / country club. Simply put, this is because a garage door is huge! Practically speaking, it is the largest feature to the front of your home. Furthermore, the driveway that leads up to it is usually so massive that the eyes can't help but follow it to your garage door(s). As a result, a good garage door can either make or break your home's curb appeal. Just look at the example below, and you'll see the evidence for yourself.
With an example like that, it's easy to see why a garage door replacement or upgrade ranks so high when it comes to increasing a home's value.
