The Best Projects to Tackle This Fall

Lately, we’ve been loving the beautiful change that comes with autumn! From colorful leaves to cool temperatures, these next few months bring not only beauty but also the opportunity to get some much-needed home projects done. The weather is perfect for working on your humble abode. 

Since the winter season is not without its own set of challenges and activities that need to be prepared for beforehand, you can take advantage of this fall season by completing a few home projects. At the same time, there’s still enough light to see what you’re doing after work! And our Devine Bros. team has some great ideas to help get you started.

Fix Leaky Windows

You don’t want to deal with heat seeping through your windows while the cool air comes in. The best way to fix this issue is by caulking around your windows where there seems to be leakage. It’s a quick project and will make all the difference in saving energy for these next few seasons. 

Clean Your Chimney

Remember that a dirty and clogged chimney will not work as efficiently, making it harder to keep your home warm in the colder months ahead. That is why one of the best ways to prepare for winter is to clean your chimney. Try not to use your fireplace or chimney until you ensure it’s all clear and ready to run for the season. 

Protect Your Perennials

Perennial flowers and shrubs are an excellent choice for people who like the convenience of low-maintenance plantings that also look beautiful. However, some of the harsh winter conditions can hurt your foliage. To avoid any damage being done, consider spreading mulch around your flower beds to ensure your plants are well-protected and insulated. 

Upgrade Your Furnace

When was the last time you updated your furnace? Whether you need to replace it with a newer model or at least have it cleaned and tuned up, it’s essential to take action to ensure that your system will keep your house warm this fall and winter. Now is the time to schedule your heating system maintenance check! 

Makeover Outdoor Space

Luckily, you can still spend some time outside in the fall! If you start making some upgrades to your outdoor space now, it’ll be ready to enjoy once the snow melts in spring. One of the best ways to make use of your outdoor space is with a patio. 

Patios can be as small or large as you want and provide a great place for socializing and relaxing outside. You can choose from stone to brick supplies, and if you have any old furniture pieces in storage that require a new home, this is an excellent time to bring them out.
