10 Tasks To Get Your Home Ready For Fall
HOME ADVISOR – Want to make sure your home is ready for fall?
With the hustle and bustle of Fall comes time to prep for the months ahead. If you entertain during the holidays, now is especially a great time to make sure your home is ready for visitors by November and December.
This fall project checklist will help you tackle 10 tasks that you can do before winter comes that will protect your home during the cold months and save you money over the years to come.
1. Repair Your Roof (Or Replace)
Small roofing issues can turn into big problems if they’re not fixed ASAP. If your home has a few missing shingles or was subjected to nasty storms over the summer, it’s a good idea to have a pro inspect your roof for any potential problems. If you find that your roof needs more than a fix, visit our partners at Horizon Exteriors for roof replacement.
2. Fall Lawn Maintenance
If you want a green lawn in the summer, you need to properly prep it in the fall. Now is the time to aerate, rake, fertilize, weed and overseed your lawn. If you have underground sprinklers, have them blown out and winterized before the temperatures drop below freezing.
3. Furnace Tune-Up
Just because your furnace is running smoothly doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have it tuned up. Having a heating pro take a look will ensure your furnace runs at peak efficiency throughout the winter. Having your furnace tuned is the key to keeping your overall utility costs down.
4. Upgrade Your Windows
Tired of dealing with condensation, drafts and exorbitant heating bills? Now is the time to upgrade your windows. Besides improving the overall comfort of your home, new windows will also improve its looks and value. Visit our partners at Horizon Exteriors for window replacements.
5. Increase Insulation
If you’re like many homeowners, you probably haven’t given a second thought to your home’s insulation. But neglecting your insulation can prove to be a costly mistake. Insufficient insulation is one of the biggest budget-busters when it comes to your utility bills.
6. Interior Painting
Whether your interior walls are looking worse for wear or you simply want to change things up a bit, fall is a perfect time for painting.
7. Carpet Cleaning
Regular cleaning will prolong the lifespan of your carpets. Consider hiring a professional if it has been awhile since your carpets’ last cleaning.
