Top 5 Fall Home Improvement Projects

The leaves and weather are changing, so why not take advantage of the beautiful Fall weather to make a change to your home as well?

Check out CS4’s top five home improvement projects for the fall:
  1. Paint the front door – Refresh your curb appeal with a new color door just in time for trick-or-treaters!  To allow the paint to adhere properly, paint when the outside temperature is 50 degrees or warmer.
  2. Refresh the deck – Clean, stain, waterproof, or repair your deck.
  3. Tackle your floors – No matter how new or old your floors are, they can always use maintenance.  This could mean new floors or rugs, refreshing the old wood, cleaning the grout between tiles, or shampooing your carpets.  Fall is the perfect time for flooring projects because the weather is cool and windows can be comfortably left open. 
  4. Clean the gutters – While never a fun chore, cleaning your gutters can help prevent damage to the foundation of your home.
  5. Add insulation – Add insulation to your home just in time to save on your winter heat bills.  If you haven’t looked at the insulation in your attic, crawlspaces, or basement recently, there’s no time like the present!
