Fall is the perfect time of the year to work on your home. The busy summer months are behind you and the cold snaps of winter haven’t yet begun. If you’re looking for a few home projects that can have a big impact on your property, here are a few to consider.
If you know your windows are on the old side and they leak like crazy, fall is a great time to get them replaced. New windows will make a world of difference on your energy bills as winter hits and they’ll look great on your home as well.
Replace the Entry Door
The entry door to your house can be a security risk if it’s not strong enough and it can bring down the curb appeal of the home as well. If you need a new door, take your time choosing the perfect fit or design custom options this fall.
It might not sound like the most glamorous upgrade since you won’t see it from inside or outside of your home, but you sure will feel it. Fall is a great time to add insulation to the attic while it’s not scorchingly hot or dreadfully cold. Adding insulation can get you breaks on your taxes the next time around and you will notice an automatic difference in the comfort of your home as well as on your energy bills. When you get your attic insulated to the proper levels, you’ll have a much more comfortable winter and when summer rolls around again, you’ll be cooler then as well. You’ll raise the resale value of your home along with lowering your energy bills.
