September is here and the official beginning of autumn will be here soon. While the weather is still nice, it’s a good idea to get outside and inspect around your home. This gives you the chance to make sure everything is ready for cooler, wetter months. Here are some fall home maintenance tips to keep in mind.
Inspect Your Exterior Doors:
Exterior doors are common sources of air leaks. Ensure the weatherstripping and seals around the doors are secure. That way, they’re able to act as a barrier against cold drafts that try to make their way inside. If your exterior doors have seen better days, now is the time to consider replacing them. At Lifetime Windows and Doors, we have a wide selection of doors that are energy efficient, stylish for any home style, and durable. If you need a custom door, we can accommodate that, too!
Look at Your Roof:
Your roof is the key to keeping you and your family warm, dry, and comfortable during the autumn weather. Now is the time to look closely at your roof to make sure there are no missing shingles or other exposure that could cause moisture accumulation this fall. Maybe your roof is decades old, and a replacement is in order. Fall is a great time to do this – we won’t have freezing temperatures and there are still plenty of dry days ahead. Our roofing experts can get your new roof installed in a timely way so you can head into the fall and winter months with confidence knowing that your home will be protected.
Make Sure Your Windows Aren’t Leaking Air:
Drafty windows? Not only is this a waste of energy, but this will cause expensive heating bills in the fall and winter months. Make sure your windows don’t have loose frames, damaged weatherstripping, cracked panes, or significant drafts. If they do, you should consider getting them replaced with windows that are energy efficient and reliable. This is not only a benefit to your comfort, but it also adds value to your home.
