The changing season means that it’s time to tackle all those home improvement projects sitting untouched on your to-do list. Fall is an excellent time to complete these projects to ensure your home is ready for frigid winter weather. Here are some projects to conquer this autumn.
Upgrade Your Single-Pane Windows
Single pane windows do a poor job of insulating homes from chilly temperatures, increasing your heating bills and making your home feel cold and drafty. Consider replacing them with double-pane windows.
Double-pane windows have a design that helps retain your home’s warmth during the cold winter months; during the summer, double-pane windows prevent cooled air from your HVAC system from escaping, helping you increase the energy efficiency of your home.
Paint Your Home’s Exterior Surfaces
If you host holiday gatherings or just enjoy entertaining during the winter months, it’s an excellent time to refresh your home’s exterior paint.
Fall is an excellent time to paint exterior surfaces thanks to the lower humidity and mild temperatures. When paint is exposed to hot, humid weather, this makes the paint runny, impacting the quality of your paint job.
Clean Your Gutters
Your gutters redirect precipitation away from your home to protect it from moisture that can cause mold or mildew. If your gutters are filled with sticks, leaves, or other debris, this prevents the water from flowing through your gutters and away from your home.
When cleaning your gutters, you should also examine them to make sure they’re not damaged or broken.
Repair Damaged Drywall
Not only is damaged drywall unsightly, but it can allow air and moisture to penetrate your home.
If any of your walls are cracked or have holes or gaps, repairing these issues will improve the energy efficiency of your home, prevent moisture accumulation, and enhance your home’s appearance.
