Ahh, Fall is finally in the air! With the transition of summer to winter, there are a few important tasks that you need to put behind in order to say that you really are fully prepared (aside from hanging wreaths and carving up pumpkins, of course). To get you started and well on your way, here are a few important home improvement chores around the house that you should not fail to complete according to one of the most trusted home exterior renovation companies serving the Twin Cities.
1. Eliminate Drafts
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heat loss because of drafty windows accounts for 25 to 30 percent of heating energy use. In the fall and winter months, this could mean a significant spike in your utility bills. Luckily, this is easily avoided by addressing small leaks in your windows.
2. Check Your Gutters
For many of us, fall is marked by the bright colored foliage that slowly drops down from the trees. Unfortunately, what this could mean for you is clogged gutters. To avoid your gutters getting backed up by fallen leaves and other debris, make sure that you call in your local roofing contractors to conduct a thorough cleaning.
3. Store Your Outdoor Furniture
They may be designed to be used out of doors but that doesn’t mean that they are completely indestructible. To ensure that your outdoor furniture makes it to another summer, consider storing them in your garage or shed.
