As the outdoor temperature drops, Fall is a great season to tackle home maintenance projects, especially when it comes to your roof, insulation, and overall energy efficiency. Revisit your Fall home improvement checklist and prioritize any areas of concern.
Fall Home Improvement
Roof Repairs. Inspect your roof for any signs of damage or leaks. Start by replacing any missing shingles before the first snowfall or freezing rain. If you have any leaks or gaps, snow and ice will find a way in. Contact a reliable roofing contractor for a more thorough inspection and to immediately address major repairs or roof replacement.
Gutter Cleaning. Clean any dirt, leaves, or build up from your gutters. Also, check your downspouts to make sure water is being funneled away from the house. Clogged gutters in the winter mean ice will build up and cause leaks and other significant damage.
Attic Insulation. Take care of any drafts by installing or replacing attic insulation. Air leakage can be responsible for almost 40% of the energy used for heating and cooling your home. If the attic insulation is at or below the level of the joists, you may be able to keep your home warmer by adding more.
Caulk. Caulking around windows, doors, and siding is another simple solution to prevent any drafts or leaks. A silicone caulk is flexible, waterproof, and inexpensive. It is a quick DIY weekend project.
