When the hustle and bustle of the summer finally begins to wind down, you may find yourself looking to make improvements to your home before the winter season arrives.
Fall is the perfect time to tackle jobs from your home improvement to-do list. Here are some of the most popular fall projects that homeowners will pursue this season…
Improve Your Curb Appeal
There are many simple ways to update the exterior of your property. A freshly painted front door can be finished in less than an afternoon, and can change the look of your home drastically. You may also consider adding new shrubs, trees, and/or perrenials to your landscape; fall is a great time to plant because the weather is cool but the soil is still warm enough for the roots to develop.
Refresh & Repair Your Deck
After a season of enjoying the great outdoors on your deck, it’s time to take a look at the condition as you prepare for the temperatures to drop. Do you notice splintering, a faded finish, or shaky railing? Fall is a great time to refresh and make any necessary structural and safety reinforcements to your deck.
Clean Out Your Gutters
Remove leaves from your gutters by hand or with the assistance of a leaf blower or wet-dry vac. This task will likely need to be repeated when more leaves begin to fall throughout the season, but it is necessary to help keep water funneling away from your home. Routine rain gutter maintenance could prevent thousands of dollars in damage to the foundation of a home.
Make Repairs To Your Roof
Because we all know that winter is not the best time for roof work, you’ll want to make sure that any repairs/improvements made to your roof will be done before snow and ice find their way to our region. If your roof is in need of attention, it’s best to make those improvements in the fall season.
Update Your Home HVAC System
Going into the heating season, assessing your furnace should be on the top of your fall to-do list. If your heating system is less than 10 years old, now is a great time to schedule your fall HVAC tune-up. Preventative maintenance is the best way to help identify any early furnace warning signs that could lead to an untimely winter breakdown.
On the other hand, if your existing system has been in place for more than 10 to 15 years, it’s likely that your home could benefit from a new furnace.
