Will A Dented Garage Door Devalue My Home?

An attractive garage door is one of the first things a passer-by notices about a home. It’s not surprising since they take up anywhere from 20 percent to 40 percent of a home’s facade. When the front entrance presents inviting curb appeal, it’s a show stopper. Whether your intention is to stay in your home indefinitely or put it on the market soon, your garage door is an essential component contributing to the allure of that first impression.

Garage doors are also an important part of the original architectural floor plan. Realtors say new or upgraded garage doors have the potential to increase your home’s value considerably. On the other hand, a dented or broken garage door could have a significant negative impact on its value. An old, dented garage door implies the rest of the house is tired and outdated, too. Recently, JELD-WEN conducted a survey that found replacing the entry and garage doors on a typical 2,500-square-foot home added an additional $16,000 to the market price. And replacing a garage door can be a worthwhile upgrade, with a 90% return on the investment. A chic, remodeled garage door can make your property the most attractive on the block.

If there’s a dent in a steel or aluminum garage door from a high-velocity fastball, it doesn’t mean the entire garage door needs replacing. Qualified professionals can repair small dents, rot, rust, holes, or replace a damaged panel. Garage doors can be matched to your home’s entry door, whether steel, aluminum, wood, wood composites, fiberglass, vinyl or glass. As a comparison, with aluminum panels, the problem of rust is eliminated, but they’re easier to dent. Those made from fiberglass are less subject to denting or cracking. And vinyl garage doors are recommended as being ‘kid-proof,’ because they’re difficult to dent or break. So, if the power pitcher in the family bangs up the garage door, our knowledgeable specialists are only a phone call away, with the right tools for the job.
