10 Parts of the Home You Can (and Should) Renovate Before Winter

The cold months are coming! For homeowners, it’s time to start getting your house ready for the cold winter months. Are you ready to winterize your home? Check out this list of areas you’ll want to renovate before the upcoming season

Consider Carpet Care

Your house should feel cozy and warm during the winter. Taking care of or replacing those carpets for winter is a great idea. It can help lock in heat and have your floors looking wonderful when guests come over for the holidays.

Fresh Coat of Paint

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your home and help you rejuvenate your space for the winter season. Whether it’s been a while since you painted the walls or you’re simply looking to change up the color, now is the perfect time.

Gut the Gutters

Rain, falling leaves, and snow do a number on your home. Cleaning those gutters prevents build-up during difficult precipitation seasons. This will ensure you don’t have to worry about all that water coming inside.

Attic and Crawl Space Work

Make sure your attic and crawl space are insulated so that no heat is escaping through the walls and making your bills higher than they should be. It will not only ensure your home is warm but will also help you save money too!

Finishing Touches on the Basement

The winter months bring family gatherings. Make sure your space can accommodate the parties and events you’re having and the family and friends who might be staying with you. Basement repairs are a great idea to have done before the holidays arrive and family is staying in your extra rooms in the basement.

Fix Up Your Cabinets

Repairing or replacing broken or outdated cabinets is a must. Fix up the storage space in your home and ensure that there is always a place to carefully store your items.
