As the summer heat dissipates and cooler weather prevails in the fall, you have a great opportunity to get some important things done around the house before the cold winter weather arrives.
While there might be dozens of projects on your list, some may be better to do now than others.
Autumn Home Improvement Projects
There are certain home renovations that are best to do in the fall to better prepare your house for the winter ahead. Here are some of the most time-sensitive repairs and improvements that you might want to pursue this autumn:
Check on Your Insulation
Take a look at the weatherstripping around your doors, windows, and garage. If you use felt strips, they will wear down over time, so replace them as needed to keep any cold air out.
Replace Single-Pane Windows
Single-pane windows don’t insulate your home as well as modern windows. Even if you can only replace a couple of them here and there, now is a great time to get started so that your house can stay toasty warm throughout the winter chill!
Have the Roof Inspected
Winter can be brutal on a roof. You might have some wear and tear up there (or outright damage, like holes or worn boots.) It’s a good idea to leave the roof repairs to professionals, so it could be helpful to get a hold of a general contractor sooner rather than later.
Check the Fireplace
Clean fireplaces out completely and have them inspected before using them in the winter.
Refinish and Seal Your Porch, Deck, and/or Patio
Get your outdoor space refinished and sealed to protect it from the winter ahead. Autumn is a great time for this! It will refresh the look of your home and help wooden features last longer, too!
Paint Your Exterior
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders when it comes to transforming a house. It’s also a great time to replace your siding, too.
