Fall Renovation Projects Part 2

October 26, 2018 admin

Fall is coming to a close and Winter is fast approaching, but there’s still time to get done a few Fall projects that will see you through this next cold season. Consider some of these options before you run out of time.

1. Maintain your Deck

Your deck is about to see a lot of wear and tear. You’ve just spent the Summer enjoying it, why not spend some time preparing it for Winter by cleaning, stripping and refinishing it? Your best bet here is a durable finish that will protect your deck material, especially if it’s hardwood. In the Spring you can touch this up again to make it look brand new for Summer but what you want to do in the Fall is maintain your decking material, so it lasts for years to come.

2. Upgrade your Flooring

All that time spent on patios this Summer is coming to an end. You’re going to be spending a lot more time inside so you might as well enjoy it. Consider replacing or refinishing your flooring as a great option to spruce up a home. Replacing your flooring also allows you to look into modern options like heated flooring and will ultimately save you money in energy consumption by maintaining the insulating qualities of good flooring materials.

For something, a little extra spicy consider refinishing your concrete floors by polishing and grinding them. The finish is durable and hard-wearing and looks beautiful too. We can help you with any of your floor polishing needs if you have any questions.

3. Upgrade your Insulation

This one’s a bit of a no-brainer. It’s getting colder inside, and ideally, you’re staying warm inside. Consider replacing your old, worn, or outdated insulation with something newer. You can often get energy rebates from the government just for installing more efficient insulation. If you have an unfinished basement now is the time to think about insulating and refinishing it. Also, don’t forget attics, crawl spaces, and garages, which often lack full insulation and can benefit tremendously from a little hard work.
