Now that the summer heat has packed up and gone, which home renovations should you be focusing on before winter rears its head? Below we have a list of cool-weather projects that will prepare your home for winter so you can avoid any unwanted surprises in the spring.
Any climate that produces dramatic temperature fluctuations between the seasons and freezing temperatures in fall and winter, has homes that are prone to roof leaks. The cooler temperatures of the fall are the ideal time to get a crew up on the roof to assess any potential problem areas and get them sealed up before the first snowfall.
A good summer is one with memories of long days and nights spent enjoying your deck. Unfortunately, this can lead to some normal wear and tear. Give the deck a good power washing to prevent any mold buildup. Then, replace any loose, warped, or decaying boards. If your deck was on its last legs this summer, now is the time to completely replace it before winter’s heavy snowfall. The best part about replacing your deck this time of year is being able to take advantage of end-of-season sales.
Colder temperatures are on the way. If your windows are not providing adequate insulation for your home, you could be in for some unexpectedly high energy bills just in time for the holidays. Do yourself a favor and invest in this area of your home that will make your family more secure and keep them warmer in the colder days to come.
