  • Opening Intro -

    The dog days of summer might have you already dreaming about crisp autumn breezes.

    The good news is that the last half of summer goes by quickly, and it’s the perfect time to start getting your home ready for fall.


Follow these four tips to get your home ready to welcome autumn.

Paint the Front Door

You’ll have to check with your local HOA about whether or not you can paint your door a certain color, but adding a fresh new shade to your front door can completely change your exterior.

The end-tail of summer is also the perfect time to take on this project since it’s not too cold in the evening and paint won’t freeze before it can fully dry.

Repaint the Deck

After all those long summer nights basking in the evening warmth and enjoying the barbecue, your deck may be in need of some TLC. If you notice that your deck’s wood is split, fading or some of the rails are loose, it’s time for a touch-up. Decks should always be maintained to avoid attracting termites or creating safety hazards; it is much easier to prime, paint and refinish your deck now before winter hits.

Have Your Roof Inspected

A roofing contractor can let you know whether you need to schedule any repairs or even invest in a replacement. Damaged roofs cost homeowner’s hundreds of dollars in heating and cooling, and they may put your home at risk of insect or rodent infestations.

If you fix your roof now, you’ll be able to ensure that your home is nice and cozy throughout fall and winter. You might also want to take this time to refinish your roof and change its color or shingles; this renovation is more costly, but it lasts for a long time and can really make your home look brand new.

Clean the Gutters

Fall showers and heavy wind can cost you thousands of dollars in damage if your gutters aren’t up to handle the weather. Gutter maintenance is easy and affordable, so you should put this at the top of your to-do list before autumn arrives. If you decide to outsource the project, you should expect to pay $3 to $9 a foot.

Autumn is a fresh start and a new season, and the last months of summer give you a prime opportunity to make some home renovations. Your upgrades will increase your property value and help you welcome the new season with a fresh look and comfortable atmosphere.
