The summer temperatures are still in full effect in Kansas City, but before long fall will be in full swing. Is your home ready?
School may already be back in session, but before summer officially ends on September 21st, tackle these tasks and set your home up for success for the colder seasons ahead.
Inspect Your Insulation
Your home’s insulation is the barrier that protects you and your family from the outside elements. However, this barrier can break down over time leading to an increase of problems when it comes to pests and electric bills. Make sure your home is well insulated for the fall by inspecting problem areas like your attic, or worn siding, as well as other insulating factors like window and door seals.
Get a New Coat
The end of summer is the perfect time to invest in a new coat of paint for your home. Whether you choose an exterior or interior refresh, a new paint color and coat will being new vibrancy to your home that you can enjoy this fall and for years to come.
Repair Problem Areas
Sure, that window that won’t quite shut all of the way didn’t seem like a big problem this summer, but with colder temperatures on the way, now is the time to get it replaced. Partner with the Kansas City window replacement experts at Total Home KC to find a new style that fits your home and budget.
Do a Quick Clean
After endless days spent outside this summer, there’s a good chance your yard could use a cleaning. Pick up any toys or tools laying around your house, not only to alleviate your neighbors from the eyesores and to give your space a fresh start for fall, but also to ensure your exterior siding and paint don’t get damaged.
When you take the time now to complete these home projects, you will not only get on the top of remodelers’ schedules, but you will also be able to enjoy the busy seasons ahead with a priceless peace of mind. A little home care goes a long way when it comes to preventative chores before fall and winter, so go ahead, send summer off with a fully checked to-do list and a home that’s prepared for the next Kansas City season.
