What Are the Top Fall CT Home Improvement Projects?
By Your Fiderio Expert Oct 6, 2014
The leaves have changed colors, the air has cooled down, and the holiday season is on its way. Can you smell the crisp scent of October in the air? As the seasons change, it is a good time to revaluate your home and to make appropriate indoor and out door improvements to your home. Here are a few improvements that can increase the value of your home, helping you to prepare for the upcoming winter season, and make your home more appealing.
Redecorate Your Rooms
As fall approaches, your rooms may be a little out-seasoned with bright colors and decorations. Spice up your rooms this fall by adding fall d’cors and colors. Warm oranges, reds, yellows, and browns always give the sense that fall is approaching. Be daring and change from the traditional fall colors with deep purples and pink
Install a New Entry Door
Your front door must not only be beautiful, but you also want an ct entry door to provide the maximum-security available to protect your loved ones. When it comes to security, fiberglass, wood, or steel replacement entry doors are acceptable. Regardless of which door you choose, you want to make sure it fits tightly into the frame with no more than 1/8″ clearance between the door and the frame and is fitted with secure, high quality door locks. Not only will these features give you security, they’ll also help prevent drafts and reduce heating costs.
Install Velux Skylights
Ample lighting is an essential aspect of room design. Skylights can add valuable natural light to any room, effectively making your home a happier and more comfortable place to spend time. There are also many practical reasons to consider installing a skylight: they improve energy efficiency and ventilation, provide more efficient and betterlighting, while reducing strain on your eyes.
Replace Any Old Windows
Replacing your old windows with new, energy efficient replacement windows is a great way to make your home more comfortable and attractive, while also reducing your monthly heating and cooling bills.
One of the simplest but most satisfying fixups you can do is to make your windows sparkle and shine, before they are covered with winter grime. If you want more information you canfrom a professional in CT Windows: How To Clean Your Windows Infographic
Install Covered Gutters
Gutter covers prevent roof debris and overhanging trees from sliding or floating into your gutters; instead, they will be repelled by the gutter covers and fall harmlessly to the ground. Gutter covers also help to save you money or time. Cleaning gutters can take several hours of your time or money to hire someone else to do it depending on the size of your home. Gutter covers eliminate the need to clean your gutters, so you can enjoy more free time or keep the saved cash in your pocket!
Also, it is wise to install new gutters before winter because if frozen water accumulates inside your gutters, the excess weight can cause buckling, separation, or detachment of your gutter sections. But if the snow, hail, or ice cannot get into your gutters in the first place, then your gutters don’t have to handle any unusual stress.
