Fall is a great time to improve the exterior of your home. The weather is cooler, so you can work without getting too hot or sweaty. The kids are out of the house most of the day, so you have more time to get things done, and the little one’s lives will be less interrupted by major projects. Plus, with the leaves changing color, your home will look even more beautiful with new windows, siding, paint, or landscaping! Here are some of our ideas for fall home exterior improvement projects:
Fall Home Exterior Improvement Project Ideas
Power wash your home’s exterior.
A thorough power washing can give your home’s exterior a refreshed look and will help protect it from the elements. There are tons of power washing pros in the area… but if you are the DIY type, be sure to rent professional grade equipment to get the job done right.
Repair or replace damaged or outdated windows and doors.
If you’ve noticed a leak or draft over the summer, consider caulking your windows and doors. This will help to prevent drafts and moisture damage. It’s a good idea to do this every few years or more often if you live in an area with extreme weather conditions.
Repair or replace damaged or outdated siding.
If your siding is damaged, fixing it immediately is essential to prevent further damage. There are patches you can use (such as caulk or wood filler), but keep in mind that’s a temporary fix.
You will eventually need to replace the siding, and that’s where we can help! Lonestar offers Richmond’s most trusted replacement siding services, and we’d be happy to work with you!
Clean and seal your gutters and downspouts.
This will help to prevent water damage to your home’s foundation. If your gutters are clogged, having them cleaned out is also a good idea.
Install new landscaping.
Fall is a great time to plant new trees, shrubs, and flowers. This will add beauty to your home and help to improve its curb appeal.
Add a new outdoor lighting system.
This will make your home more inviting at night and help to deter crime. You can choose from a variety of lighting options, including solar lights, LED lights, and motion-sensor lights.
These are just a few ideas for fall home exterior improvement projects. The best project for you depends on your budget, needs, and preferences.
