Home improvement projects canadd value to a home and do-it-yourselfers know the sweat-equitythat goes into such projects cangive homeowners a greater senseof pride in their homes. But no twohome improvement projects are thesame, and homeowners should knowthat certain projects are best tackledduring certain times of the year.Fall is a great season to work on your house, as the weather is often at itsmost agreeable once the summer heathas gone and before winter weather arrives. The following are a handfulof fall-friendly home improvementprojects for homeowners looking toimprove their homes.
Roof repair
Whether you’re repairing or replacingthe roof, fall is a great time of year to dust off the ladder and get somework done on your roof for a varietyof reasons. First and foremost, fall isideal for roof work because you won’thave to be up on the roof with thesummer heat bearing down on you.This can make the project move alongmore quickly, which is especiallybenecial if you are paying laborersto work on the roof. The fewer hoursworkers are xing your roof, the lessyou will be paying in labor costs.In addition, xing up the roof in the fallensures those winter storms, be it rainor snow, won’t nd their way into your home via leaks. A leaky roof in winter is hard to x, as the roof surface couldbe treacherous in the winter andwinter winds can make it dangerousto be up on the roof at all. Addressingleaks in the fall can prevent damage toyour home’s interior, which can mountup if a leaky roof is not addresseduntil the following spring.
Window work
When the weather outside getsfrightful, poorly insulated windowscan allow cold air into the home. Thatoften has a trickle-down effect onnances, forcing you to turn up thethermostat in an attempt to offsetthe cold air pouring into the home.Whether you need your windowsreplaced or simply need to patchup any leaks, a proactive approachto leaky or older windows in the fallcan save you from unnecessarilyhigh heating bills come the winter. Addressing leaky windows also makesa home more comfortable for itsinhabitants.Fall is the ideal time to addressa home’s windows because thetemperature outside tends to bepleasant. This means you likely won’thave to make much of an effort tooffset the elements, and open

windows in the fall won’t make your home’s interior very hot or cold likethey might if you were to tackle theproject during the summer or winter.
Fixing the oors
Wood ooring is a hot commodity for many homeowners. But not all ooringcan be added to a home at any time ofyear. That’s because certain types ofooring employ adhesives that needtemperatures inside the home to bewithin a certain range, and that rangeis often within 70o to 80o F, whichmakes fall a great time to install suchoors. Colder temperatures can makeit difcult for the ooring to dry andbond, which will prove problematicdown the road. What’s more, manypeople entertain friends and familycome late fall and into the holidayseason, and it can be difcult to do soif you are busy installing new ooring.
Painting projects
Painting is another homeimprovement project thatseems tailor-made for fall. A fresh coat of paint or a newcolor scheme around thehouse can give a home anentirely new look and feel. Butpaint can be pungent and thearomas may last if it’s appliedat a time of year when it can’tdry while the windows arewide open. Paint fumes insidea home can make the homeuninhabitable, but painting ata time of year like the fall, when youcan keep the windows open duringand after the project, can help air thehome out.But interior painting isn’t the onlypainting project homeowners cantackle in the fall. Many exterior paintsare temperature-sensitive and needthe temperature outside to be above40º F. Paint that freezes won’t dryproperly, and homeowners might beleft with a costly and unsightly mistakeon their hands. Fall temperatures tendto be amenable to both interior andexterior painting projects, just be sureto check the weather forecast beforemaking your rst brush stroke.
