Small repairs may seem insignificant, but letting them add up over time means an overwhelming list down the road.
Take a personal inventory of repairs that need to be addressed. These could range from paver stones that need replaced in a patio to a large-scale roof replacement. Walk your home from top to bottom and make a list of issues.
Look for paint that needs retouched, tiles that need grouted, loose or scuffed baseboards, broken screens, squeaky doors, and everything in-between.
Budget and prioritize what can be addressed now, what needs a professional to fix, and what needs to wait for available funds.
Fall is also the time of year to prepare your home for Winter. It is much easier to install storm windows during temperate weather than during a blizzard.
Be sure to address each of these issues each Fall:
