When you look at your house with an eye toward maintaining or even enhancing its value, what do you see? Whether your list is long or short, Garage Doors of Indianapolis (GDI) strongly recommends you take a long, hard look at your garage door(s). Why? Because most homeowners don’t pay close enough attention to them, and they’re often a prominent street-facing aspect of any house that everyone sees when passing by.

Garage Doors Have a Big Impact on House Value

Garage doors as we know them today haven’t been around all that long. After all, it wasn’t until the automobile became widely available that homes even needed garages to begin with. It was around the second decade of the twentieth century when architects began designing and building garages near or as part of homes. Fast-forward to the present day, and garages (and garage doors) have become ubiquitous. They also have a surprisingly large role to play in a home’s value.

Whether it’s a seller’s market or a buyer’s market in and around the greater Indianapolis metropolitan area, when it comes to maintaining a home’s value, far too many homeowners fail to think about their garage door(s). Depending on how a house was built and where the garage is located, garage doors are often the most significant architectural feature and the largest entry point visible from the street. In many cases, garage doors are going to have the biggest impact on a home’s curb appeal.
