Fall is upon us and with that, there are a few home improvement tasks that you should do.   

Four Home Improvement Tasks to Do This Fall, Youngs Insurance, Ontario

It’s always best to be prepared – so before you enjoy the leaves changing colour and pumpkin spice everything, be sure to get your home fall ready.  We’ve provided a few of the most imperative home improvement tasks you should tackle.

1 | Inspect the Roof

Fall is a great time to examine your roof for any needed improvements.  If you do notice some damage, call a roofer to help you determine whether you can fix the problem area or whether it’s better to replace the whole roof.

2 | Clean the Gutters

It’s necessary to clean your gutters at least once per year in order to avoid water build up and freezing issues.  Large icicles can form when gutters get clogged and these become a hazard to anyone walking underneath them.

3 | Check the Furnace

Your furnace may need a tune up so it’s always a good idea to test it before the temperatures drop low - you don’t want to be without heat in cold temperatures.  Another helpful home improvement tip is to remember to change the air filter, too.

4 | Get Everything Ready for Winter

If you have an older home, fall is the time to look at replacing windows or doors or adding insulation to walls and ceilings.  You’ll also want to bring in your outdoor patio furniture and seal any cracks in your driveway or around your home.

We hope you found these home improvement tips helpful and you enjoy all the beauty that comes along with the fall season.
