2020 Cost vs. Value Report cites a return on investment up to 94.5% for garage door replacements

Garage door replacements rank at No. 2 for the highest return on investment (ROI) for household renovations according to the 2020 Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling magazine and the National Association of Realtors (NAR). This year’s study concludes that U.S. homeowners who chose to replace their garage door saw an average of 94.5% ROI at resale. In select markets, that figure went as high as 132.7%. Since 2010, garage door replacements have consistently ranked among the top five household renovation investments in the Cost vs. Value Report.

“The Cost vs. Value Report illustrates how important the exterior of the house is when attracting home buyers. Replacing your garage door can mean the difference between a good or bad first impression, that’s why choosing a stylish and well-crafted door is essential,” said Christian Morrow, brand manager for Overhead DoorTM Brand. “A new, custom-colored garage door can give your home a unique curb appeal that attracts potential buyers.”

Construction cost estimates for the report were generated by RemodelMAX, a publisher of estimating tools for remodelers. Each year, the company prepares a detailed construction estimate for 22 types of remodeling projects and then adjusts its baseline cost to account for pricing variations of resale value in the 101 U.S. markets. Nine of the top 10 high-return projects involved exterior projects, with the interior project dealing with minor kitchen remodels.
