Home Improvement Tips for Fall and Winter
Posted on April 12, 2015.
Lower temperature, changing hues, falling leaves and grey sky- with the fall comes a myriad of changes in the weather and the surroundings. The harsh weather can be as harmful for your house as for your skin. In order to protect your home from the damaging effects of autumn and to gear it up for the upcoming winters here are some of the most important fall and winter home improvement tips.
Flaking paint: One of the most common problems house owners face during the fall is peeling paints. As the fall comes after humid spring and summer water vapor condenses beneath the primer and cracks the surface. Therefore, it is recommended to paint your exterior walls when the temperature is low but not extremely cold.
Ice damming: Another problem is that of ice damming. This happens because of clogged drains. Make sure you get the gutters cleaned frequently and check for broken joints and brackets. Doing this will prevent ice damming on the roof and thus protect your roof from water damage.
Drafty windows: Drafts occur when your windows have become old and are not properly sealed. This causes the heat to escape from the house, thus giving you higher heating bills. The solution is replacing the windows to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
