Home Improvement Tips for the Fall

Posted in Blog on September 19th, 2016 by Ian Stevens

Interested in improving your home this fall? Once the summer fun is over it’s time to look forward to the winter season, and preparing your home during the fall season is the best way to do that. Here is a list of home improvement tips for the fall:

  • Remove leaves: To avoid a big mess in your lawn, get out the rakes as soon as there are a decent amount of leaves on the floor. A mass of decomposing leaves on your lawn is the last thing you want because it can affect your grass in the long run.

 

  • Investigate the roof: While the weather is good, inspect the roof for potential damage. It’s easier for repair jobs to be completed while temperatures are still above freezing, which makes fall the perfect time. Also, by spotting damage early you can prevent it from propagating and potentially turning into a much more expensive repair job.

 

  • Energy efficiency of windows: If you haven’t upgraded your windows in a while then it might be time to do so. ENERGY STAR® rated windows should be installed because they have a great energy efficiency rating. Also check around your windows for potential sources of leaks because, during the winter, any cold air that leaks into your home is just increasing the cost of your energy bills.

Mold is another great thing to inspect during the fall season. See how MD Mold Testing can help your house with our home inspections.
