Fall has settled into the year, and that means there isn’t so much good weather around anymore. So you need to make the most of all the sunny days that come your way! As fun as it is to enjoy them by spending time outside or going for days out, you should also use sunny days to get some important outdoor jobs done. Want to know the best way to spend your sunny days? Here are the best maintenance jobs you can do.
Sort Your Roof Out
While the weather is good, you should give your roof a once over. This gives you the chance to make sure that all the tiles and shingles are still in place. If they aren’t, it can be worth getting in a roofing professional in to fix things. Now is also the best time of year to get in a roof construction in to do any extensive work that needs carrying out on your roof.
Look After Your Lawn
From the middle of fall, you won’t need to mow your lawn anymore. That is because the grass will stop growing during the cold winter months. However, you will still have to care for it so that the grass doesn’t completely die. You can give it a great helping hand by feeding it now. You will be able to buy lawn feed from your local garden center. After you have cut the lawn for the final time this year, give it a coating of the grass feed. This will ensure it is very healthy and will make it through the winter.
If you have lots of wooden window frames and doors, now is the best time to give them a lick of paint. This will brighten them up and help your house boost its curb appeal. You should check the weather forecast before you commit to a sunny day to do this job. The weather needs to be good on the following day as well. If it rains or snows, the inclement weather will spoil the fresh paintwork. Do you have a shed or other outdoor building? Then you should consider painting the wood on these as well. It might also be worth giving them a quick coating of wood treatment.
Get New Windows
It is worth upgrading any old window frames and getting new, plastic models. There are many benefits of getting new windows. One is that they can efficiently insulate your home, and ensure that it retains plenty of heat throughout the winter months. This can drastically cut down on your energy bills as you won’t need to use your heating so much. Getting fancy new windows can also increase your home’s curb appeal, which can help you sell it if it is on the market.
Did you see that there is a sunny day coming up on the weather forecast? Then you should make the most of it and get some of these important jobs done as soon as possible!
