Now that school has resumed and summer vacation is a memory, many of you might turn to what’s next. And for some of you, that means fall home renovations.

Fall is the perfect time to tackle home renovation projects. September always feels like a great time for new beginnings. The heat of summer is behind us, and so is much of southwestern Ontario’s humidity. And the cold bite of winter has yet to arrive. Plus, extracurricular activities are not quite in full swing yet, which leaves the calendar feeling not quite so congested. So what are you waiting for? Grab your hammer and drill.

Fall Home Renovations

Before you tackle any fall home renovations, do your research. What projects add value to your home? How much will they cost? How extensive are the renovations? What materials will you need? How long will the work take? Do you need any permits? These are all important factors to take into consideration.

Once you’ve decided that you are ready for the project at hand, it’s time to dive in. Adequate research beforehand can hopefully alleviate any unforeseen problems, but it’s still best to keep on top of your renovations until they are complete. Are there any potential issues that might arise during construction that you can prevent? Will inclement weather affect your timeline? Have all design elements been decided upon beforehand? How will any changes to the design affect the project as a whole? Are all pertinent materials on hand or will any back-ordered parts delay the project? One small snag can affect the whole project, so best to prevent them from occurring as best you can.

There are plenty of home renovations that add value to a home, but some that are a better choice in the fall. Indoor home renovations, like kitchens and bathrooms can be done any time of year. In the fall though, take advantage of the temperate weather and get outside. Think about improving your home’s weatherization, before winter settles in.
