Fall is a great time to do projects around your home and getting it looking great. It isn’t too hot like in summer and it isn’t yet cold like in winter. However, while many of these projects are optional, there are a few things that you should be doing to maintain your home in fall time. These tips can help prevent larger problems that can happen during the wet, icy and windy winter months. Here are a few of those things.
Trim Your Trees
One of the best things to do in the fall months is to trim back your trees. Dead limbs can fall when it is windy out, which can cause damage to your home, cars, or even people. Trimming your trees can help you prevent having to file a homeowner’s insurance claim for damage.
Maintain Your Sidewalks and Walkways
Concrete sidewalks and walkways can develop cracks in them. During the fall and winter months, it is darker outside earlier and it can be harder to see these cracks, which can be a tripping hazard. Fall is a great time to fill them in, or even find a way to light the area well.
Have Your Roof Repaired
If your roof has missing shingles, cracked tiles or is otherwise damaged, you want to have it repaired in the fall. Rain can seep in and cause more damaged, which can lead to you having to file a homeowner’s insurance claim. Having the roof inspected and repaired helps prevent this.
