Fall Home Improvement Projects

FALL is here.  Finally!

You’ll probably want to spend some time on repairs and improvements that can still be done before the coldest weather and hard rains set in. Examples include indoor painting or carpet replacement while rooms can still be comfortably aired.
 
One crucial autumn task is to ready your house for winter by clearing and repairing drainage systems and making sure you have adequate insulation.  Here are some other ideas on making some needed repairs in the fall months:
 
  • Clean and fix your drainage systems, including gutters and rain spouts, the foundation grading, and appliance leaks.
  • Clean and repair the fireplace.
  • Service heating appliances, such as your water heater and furnace.
  • Repair and upgrade insulation, including caulking, weather-stripping, and attic insulation.
  • Install storm windows.

List gathered from Wells Fargo.
