5 Home Renovations You Want to Make Before this Fall

5 Home Renovations You Want to Make Before this Fall
  • Opening Intro -

    For many homeowners, tackling the to-do list is something that's generally handled during warmer times of the year.

    This is especially true for outdoor projects where homeowners rely on comfortable temperatures to make working conditions tolerable.

-------------------------------------

The following are 5 home renovations you want to make certain to put on the schedule before this Fall.

Roofing

When roof repairs or replacement become necessary, it’s important to schedule the project around weather and temperatures that are accommodating. Summer heat and wet weather will make for unbearable working conditions, and winter weather is no time for a home to be without an intact roof.

Scheduling a roofing project before the Fall means cooler temperatures and more predictable weather conditions. It will also help to avoid temperatures that cause moisture to freeze on the roof overnight, causing unsafe working conditions.

Windows And Doors

If you have plans to replace windows and doors, doing so before temperatures drop will help to prevent an uncomfortable home during the renovation. This is also a good opportunity to install decorative shutters, or functional storm shutters. According to Northern Comfort, installing new windows and doors can make your home more energy efficient throughout the different seasons of the year.

Even when rough openings are boarded up at the end of each work day, calls for heat during these times can prove to be a strain on the heating system and the budget. By replacing your old windows and doors with new ones, you can seal off these openings allowing you to keep the heat indoors during the winter time or the cool air indoors during the summer.

Siding Replacement And Painting

If replacing or repairing siding is part of your renovation plan, scheduling this project before fall ensures that there will be good weather conditions for painting, sealing, and staining. This way you have a better chance of allowing any paint or sealing to dry properly with minimal risk of having to do it again in the near future.

While some finishes are designed to be applied during cold conditions, using normal paints and stains will be more efficient and cost effective. Homeowners should never wait until falling leaves and unpredictable winds create messy and frustrating working conditions.

Plumbing Related Projects

When Fall is knocking at the door, temperatures will begin to drop during the evening and overnight. Renovations that involve plumbing should be avoided when there’s an off chance of freezing temperatures. This is especially true for homeowners who rely on heat that is supplied by a forced-hot-water system.

Major Additions

Although interior work can be accomplished year-round, additions should be closed-in and protected from the elements before the Fall. At a minimum, windows should be installed, roofing should be complete, and sheathing should be covered with house wrap.

Scheduling renovations before the fall will offer homeowners peace of mind knowing that temperature extremes will not be a factor during their project.

Whether it’s trying to keep a home warm during window and door installations, or it’s trying to make certain that paints and finishes perform well, renovations that are affected by weather should always be scheduled before the Fall.
