10 Home Improvements To Tackle This Fall

Summer is coming to an end and not only is it time for pumpkin spice lattes, it’s time to prep for winter. Here are the home improvement projects you should tackle this fall.

Tend to Your Garden

Prep your yard now, so that it will flourish in the spring. Get rid of excess leaves and aerate your lawn. Follow up with fertilizer so your garden is ready to tough out the winter.

Window Replacement

Repair Roof

Winter storms wear on roofs and will in expand small leaks. It’s best to use a professional for fixing a roof to ensure all problems are fixed.


Double Check Insulation 

Colder weather is coming and you don’t want it to creep into your warm home so seal gaps and add insulation. Take a look at your home’s caulking and weather stripping. The attic is the first place to check insulation. It just be level to the joists and generally 10 to 14 inches.

Give Your Furnace A Little TLC 

Keeping your furnace in tiptop shape should be a priority for winter. If it isn’t maintained you could freeze or burst pipes.

Get Your Mind Back In the Gutter

Your gutter will hold thousands of gallons of water in one year, so inspect it to make sure it’s working properly. You can use mesh to keep leaves and debris out.

Keep Cozying Up to the Fire

Arguably one of the best parts of winter is being able to cozy up next to a fire. Before you do this you should do some routine maintenance. There can be flammable buildup or blockages from bird’s nests.

Get Your Sprinklers Ready

If you want your garden to last in the spring then make sure your sprinkler system will last through winter. You can do this by adding hose bibs to your system.

Repair Cracks

If you have cracks in your driveway or walkways the cold temperatures can exacerbate the problem. Get it fixed before they become a bigger problem.

Programmable Thermostat 

Yes, a programmable thermostat is more convenient but it also will save you money and protect your from health risks. Manual thermostats contain toxic mercury levels.
