Best Fall Projects in Acworth, Georgia

Best fall projects in Acworth, Georgia to start before winter.  Now that the summer heat isn’t keeping you indoors, it’s time to head outside to make repairs and get ready for the upcoming colder months.

Best Fall Projects

Georgia winters are fickle.  On Tuesday it’s warm, on Thursday it’s cool and by Saturday the temps are in the 20’s only to be back in the 60’s two days later.  Extreme weather changes are hard on roofs, outside paint, decking and plumbing systems.

Let’s start at the top and work our way down.

The Roof

Now is the time to check the roof for leaks and cracks.  You’ll want to fix any leaks before the first freezing rains or snowfall.  We recommend two things, first hiring a professional and qualified crew that can assess and fix your leaky roof quickly and safely.  Secondly, we recommend renting a roll-off container to haul away old shingles and roofing materials.

Exterior Paint

The warm days of fall in Acworth, Georgia offer enough time to paint the outside of your home long before Old Man Winter comes knocking.  A new paint job will help preserve the exterior.  Just avoid painting on days when the temperature will dip below 45 degrees.  Covering existing walls with siding can help save money down the road.  Think of it as an added layer of insulation and improve the value of the home.

The Deck

Decks are a major gathering place in the summer.  We celebrate birthdays, graduations, host book clubs, luncheons, dinners, barbeques and enjoy family-time under the eaves of the patio.  So, before winter strikes take the time to prepare the deck so that it doesn’t get damaged during freezing rains and snowfalls.  Start by power washing the deck to remove dirt, moss, mold and tannin-bleed.  Replace any rotten or lose boards and seal or stain the deck by applying two to three coats.  Come spring all the deck will need is a good washing.

The plumbing

To prevent frozen or burst pipes we recommend that you winterize exterior hoses and plumbing as well as the sprinkler system and outside faucets.  Also, insulating plumbing lines will help save money on your power bills.  Non-insulated pipes are a major cause of power use.  Follow the plumbing pipes to locate all lines outside or in unheated areas such as basements and garages.   Home improvement stores can recommend insulation or call a professional plumbing company for a complete assessment.
