5 Home Projects to Tackle in the Fall

If you just moved and are settling down into your new home, fall is a great time to tackle projects because the weather is typically mild and materials are less expensive. 

Here are five ways you can prepare your new home for the winter season:

Paint the Exterior

Don’t like the exterior color of your new home or want to refresh it? This is a great way to boost your curb appeal but also offers protection from the weather coming.

Prep Your Lawn for Next Year

Because the temperatures are cool, many homeowners with grass will aerate and overseed the turf to prep it for the next year. 

Clean Your Gutters and Check the Roof

Clean out your gutters from summertime debris to gear up for the winter months. This is also a great time to identify any missing or damaged pieces, including roof issues.

Install Smart Thermostats

If your new home isn’t equipped with smart thermostats, now is the time to install them. They will allow you to manage the temperature during the winter and save energy.

Draft-Proof Everything

Instead of being surprised with a high heat bill or leak later, it is important to check the doors, windows and chimneys for air leakages now.
