With fall just around the corner, the cooler weather has many homeowners thinking about making updates to the interiors and exteriors of their home. The best updates to consider are ones that keep it well-maintained while adding to its value.
Refresh with a Fresh Coat of Paint
You can spruce up the exterior of your home or freshen up your interior with a fresh coat of paint. With cooler and drier days coming, now is one of the best times of the year for painting. Whether you want to paint the exterior or interior of your home, this update usually can be done within a couple of days with minimal disruption to your daily routines.
Inspect, Repair or Replace Your Roof
Your home’s roof is its best defense for keeping moisture from the moderate to heavy rainfalls throughout the year and of course, the occasional winter snowfall out of your home. Unseen damage to your shingles leads to leaks that can cause water damage and mold inside your home. Fall is a good time to have your roof inspected, repaired or replaced. And if you are planning to sell your home within a few years, a new roof will add value to your home.
Give Your Gutters Some Attention
Your home’s gutters work to channel the water dripping down your roof away from its fascia and foundation. Accumulated debris can clog gutters throughout the year water to overflow and possibly leak into your home. Before rain and snow begin, make sure your gutters are clean, free of damage and firmly secured to your home. If repairs are needed, do not hesitate to have them done, otherwise, you are risking damage to your home.
Insulating Your Attic for Year-Round Comfort
With the cooler weather, upgrading the insulation in your attic is an improvement to seriously consider. A properly insulated attic will help keep your home comfortable not only during the winter months but throughout the year. During the winter, an attic sealed with insulation will prevent heat from escaping your living spaces. And during the summer, the insulation will prevent the hot air from your attic from seeping into your home. Better yet, insulating your attic will help prolong the life of your roof.
