The weather has begun to cool, leaves have started to change color, and football season is here. It’s the perfect time to work on your home. Here are some renovation ideas that are geared specifically towards the Fall season.
1. Upgrading Doors and Windows – Older windows will cause your home to lose a great deal of heat in the wintertime. Fall is a good time to consider replacing them with new double-paned windows that will increase insulation and save money on your heating bill. You should also inspect your exterior doors for gaps or cracks in between the door and door frame that will let heat out.
2. Roof Maintenance – As the leaves fall, it’s important to keep your gutters clean in order to avoid ice dams that will damage the roof in the Winter. It’s also a good time to check for any loose or curling shingles. A roof that is in poor shape may need to be replaced before winter.
3. Interior Painting – Summer humidity makes it difficult for paint to dry and often results in blotchy walls while the lack of ventilation during Winter can result in excessive drying times. A warm Autumn day is the perfect time to open up the windows and finish some interior painting projects.
