When we think of fall, we think of apple picking, pumpkins, scarecrows and Halloween. But autumn is also a great time to tackle that home improvement project you’ve been meaning to do.
From updating your front door to refreshing the deck, there are certain projects that are great to plan for fall. Whether you’re planning to list your house in spring or you’ve just been meaning to repair a few things, partner with your Boston contractor to ensure you’re prioritizing the right projects as autumn approaches.
Refresh the Front Door
With an ROI of 80 percent, replacing or repainting the front door is a great home improvement to make in fall. It’s a relatively easy project to do, too. Whether you have your contractor design and build a whole new front porch and door or you just add a new coat of vibrant paint to the door yourself, fall brings the perfect weather for this task. That’s because cooler temps allow the paint to properly adhere.
Repair the Deck
Also with an ROI of 80%, a deck repair or refresh is also a great idea this autumn. Maybe you have noticed the wood rotting or splintering on your existing deck, or perhaps the finish is fading. Whatever the case, add a new coat of stain to the deck or hire your contractor to re-build the whole thing with modern composite decking.
Update the HVAC System
While you may think this project has the lowest payoff, HVAC upgrades are actually very valuable because they drastically improve the energy efficiency of your entire home. You get lower energy bills and experience more consistent temperatures throughout the year.
Enhance Your Exteriors
If your exterior paint job doesn’t look too bad, you may be able to get away with some touch-ups. But if you have an outdated color, it’s chipping all over, or it’s been five or more years since you painted, it may be time for a siding upgrade. This will enhance your curb appeal and serve to protect your home better as well.
Replace or Repair the Roof
Your roof is your biggest investment. You have to protect it through the years by repairing or replacing it when it’s time. This will avoid expensive problems such as leaks down the road, plus it will extend the lifespan of your roofing system.
Replace the Windows
New windows aren’t flashy or fun, but they certainly add a lot of value to your property. If it’s been decades since you replaced your windows, now is the time to upgrade them. Not only will you get a boost in curb appeal and comfort, you’ll get a boost of convenience and beauty too.
