5 Fall Remodeling Projects

5 Fall Remodeling Projects

Fall is here, and winter is coming! Preparing your home for winter is a must. With wind, rain and even snow, your home can take a beating. We have 5 remodeling ideas to get you ready for fall.

 

1. Windows

Cracked or drafty windows should be replaced before the winter months arrive. Having high-efficiency windows can help reduce the amount of energy lost. By keeping warm air inside during the winter months and hot air outside during the blistering summer, insulated windows help to keep the home more comfortable while also reducing the amount of stress placed on your heating and cooling system. Who doesn’t love a lower utility bill?

2. Siding

New siding creates a protective layer, shielding your home from the elements. Here we’ve shown different siding options. We personally like Hardie Board siding, which comes with a 50-year, limited transferable warranty. High-quality siding is an investment that protects your home for years!

3. Fire Pit

Did you know an outdoor fire pit is the most popular outdoor design asked for by our clients? It’s a great place to roast hot dogs or entertain guests on chilly fall nights. You’ll want to choose a flat, level spot in your yard that you can comfortably circle with seating. You can find many different ways to build your own personal fire pits. You’ll love it!

4. Take care of your roof

It’s important to make sure your roof is winter ready. This could be minor repairs or replacing the roof. A leaky roof can make for bigger problems. Repair or replace your roof and protect your home!

We hope these helpful tips will prepare you for fall.

Let us know what you’re doing to prepare for the seasons ahead!
