As the leaves begin to change colors and the Wisconsin air turns crisp, it’s time to shift our focus from the joys of summer to the preparations for fall. While many of us enjoy the coziness of the season, it’s essential to get the outside of your home ready for fall! This not only enhances your curb appeal but also ensures your home is well-prepared for the colder months ahead.
Clean Up Your Yard
One of the first steps in preparing your home for fall is to clean up your yard. As the summer comes to an end, you’ll likely find your lawn covered with fallen leaves and debris. Make sure you rake leaves. Here at JM Remodeling, we suggest investing in a good-quality rake and starting by clearing your lawn of fallen leaves. Next, we suggested trimming overgrown plants. Trim any overgrown bushes, shrubs, or trees in your yard. Lastly, clean gutters and downspouts: ensure your gutters and downspouts are free from debris to prevent water buildup, which can lead to leaks and damage during fall rains.
Prepare Your Home’s Exterior
JM Remodeling suggests you inspect and repair! Walk around your home and inspect the exterior for any signs of damage or wear and tear. This includes checking for loose siding, peeling paint, or damaged caulking. Really, any place that would allow cold air to enter your home. Have no fear, we are here to help. If repair may be too much to do yourself we are here to help you get your home ready for the winter. We specialize in replacing roofing, updating siding, or replacing windows! JM Remodeling offers a 30-day price lock guarantee on all quotes.
Decorate for Fall
This is the fun of it all – the decorating! Seasonal wreaths are great – we suggest hanging a fall-themed wreath on your front door to greet friends and family with a warm, seasonal touch. Next is the pumpkins, arrange pumpkins of various sizes and colors on your porch to create a charming fall display – there are a lot of local pumpkin farms here in the Milwaukee area. Lastly, we suggest fall planters, planting fall flowers like chrysanthemums, asters, or ornamental grasses in decorative planters will add a burst of color to your porch or patio.
