Something as simple as a new garage door can work wonders for the curb appeal of your home and increase its value in just a few hours. A residential garage door
takes about 4-6 hours in installation and you can easily notice the way it transforms the looks of your home in that time.
First impressions matter!
Curb appeal acts as the first impression of your home. When someone looks at your house from the outside, what they see is its curb appeal. This term is generally used by brokers and real estate agents when they sell a home. The exterior appearance of the home makes a huge impact on the buyer’s decision. The exterior looks of your home can make or break the impression.
There are several factors that play an important role in the curb appeal. For example, the external paint, door, lawn, plants and other things all combine to create that look. The one thing that catches the attention of buyers is the garage door. With a new garage door, you don’t just get a functional entryway to park your car, but you also add energy, efficiency, style, and security to your house. A garage door makes sure that the curb appeal of your home is maximized and more value is added to it.
Making it look impressive
Whether you’re planning to sell your home or want to live in it, it’s important to make sure that it looks good. Take a note of the message that your home sends to its visitors. If you think your home doesn’t look impressive, its curb appeal is where you need to start.
The IDA conducted an online survey and found that almost 71% of all homeowners who recently got a new garage door feel that it has helped them increase their home value. Keeping in mind the prices of houses in Greater Vancouver, a good curb appeal can translate into a great ROI. There are several neighbourhoods in Vancouver that have almost identical looks. All homes are built with similar style and having a stylish garage door is a unique way to stand out and get the desired attention. All you need to do is select the right type of garage door that goes well with your taste and home exteriors.
Garage doors- transforming ordinary to extraordinary
The garage door takes about 30% of the façade in most homes and is the most perceptible architectural feature of a house. Many people design homes in such a way that the garage is visible from a distance across the street. If your garage holds multiple cars, you cannot ignore something as important as a garage door. It’s not feasible to ignore something that makes up almost 30% of your curb appeal. You don’t want it to look plain and ordinary when you can easily get a unique door within hours. A small investment on a garage door can last for decades and become a great return on investment.
As advised by most designers, builders, and architects, before you select a garage door, you must keep in mind the style of your home. The new door must go well with the house architecture. For example, if you have a contemporary home, a carriage-house type garage door would look totally out of place with it. Another thing to consider is that whether you want the garage door to act like a major style feature or seamlessly blend with the home exteriors.
