Fall Home Improvement Projects
It’s a good idea to work on home maintenance projects during the fall here in the Treasure Valley because once winter hits, many projects are put on hold. Not only will some maintenance projects help keep your home energy efficient during Boise’s cold season, but they can also help protect your home from potential serious damage down the road. Here are some tips for your fall home improvement projects.
…strong seals save energy and money.
Windows and doors can attribute to a large amount of energy lost during the colder months. While the temperatures are still cool, consider reducing heat loss by sealing drafts in windows or doors with weather stripping or caulk. If your home has outdated windows that allow the cold to enter your home, it might be a good time to have new windows installed. Though this may be a large investment now, over time tightly sealed windows will save your money on your energy bill.
As the weather in the Boise area begins to cool down, your roof is one of the most important features in your home when it comes to keeping the heat in and keeping water or snow out. Fall is a great time to take a look at the condition of your roof, especially if you own an older home. If something doesn’t look right, or if you’re unsure of what you see, it is probably best you leave it to the professionals to climb up there and assess the situation. If you’re worried about your roof, or haven’t had it checked in years, then you might want to take advantage of Carson Roofing’s roof inspection and maintenance programs. Usually, roof leaks will manifest themselves in the form of stains on the ceiling, but any abnormalities should be looked into. Don’t let a small problem turn into a major one. There are certain things that are only obvious to a trained eye, and that’s why you should have your roof inspected by professionals on a regular basis. By catching small issues as they come, you can lengthen the life of your roof and save money down the road. If you’ve been putting off re-roofing your home, consider using this season to get the project done before winter gets in the way.

With autumn comes leaves. It’s important to keep your gutters clear of leaves and built up debris to ensure your gutters work properly to drain rain and snow melt.
