Fall is the best time for home remodeling. The weather is still pretty nice during this time, so you and your contractor can stay comfortable throughout the project. It’s also just before winter, making it the best time to prepare. Here are five projects you may want to consider discussing with your window and door contractor this season.
1. Replace the Roof
Your roof suffers through a lot in a year. This is the perfect time to replace any missing or damaged shingles. We recommend an in-depth inspection before you start. You can add insulation to the attic to prepare for the snow.
2. Redecorate the Siding
The exterior walls will start to fade over time. You don’t want to see this happen to your home, as it will begin to lose color. Our siding contractors can help give it a fresh update. We can repaint the outside, replace any damaged or scratched parts, or put in new siding.
3. Add a Skylight
Skylights help bring more sunlight to your home. This is useful, especially when the cold winter arrives. Have this installed around the time you replace your roof. That way, you can enjoy two projects within one season.
4. Get a New Door
Your door’s weatherproof seal wears down over time. This can lead to drafts or heat. It also means you’ll enjoy a cooler winter than you’d want. With a door replacement, you can get a more energy-efficient type. With stronger materials and better seals, you’ll improve your home’s heat retention during winter and keep it cool during summer.
5. Clean the Gutters
Gutters keep your home clean and dry. However, leaves and shingle granules can build up and block the system. Play it safe by cleaning your gutters, before ice dams form and pull them down.
