Fall’s milder weather provides great conditions for completing home remodeling projects. Here are five projects that you may want to consider:
Update your kitchen: With the holidays approaching quickly, the fall is a great time to make improvements to your kitchen. You can do minor things like replacing the hardware on your cabinets, or think bigger and install all new appliances.
Install new windows: Older windows often allow lots of cold air to enter your home. Replacing old windows with newer, energy-efficient windows will reduce your energy costs and help to keep your home warm.
Insulate the attic: You can significantly reduce your energy bills by insulating your attic. It’s an often overlooked source of cold air that can make your home chilly during the winter months.
Fix the roof: Nobody wants to get up on the roof in the snow and ice. Fall is a great time to replace a damaged roof, or make repairs to shingles or the chimney.
Paint your exterior: A fresh coat of paint can give your home a brand new look like nothing else. Fall weather is perfect for painting outdoors because temperatures over 80 degrees Fahrenheit and direct exposure to sunlight often have negative effects on paint.
