Best DIY projects for fall

Repair or replace your roof

The freeze and thaw cycle of winter will make any existing leaks in your roof worse due to the expansion of the ice. Plus, nobody wants to have to go up on the roof when it’s covered in ice. For both of these reasons, it’s a good idea to check for leaks and fix any you find before the real cold comes, whether that means repairing your roof or having it replaced. If you’re removing old shingles, a roll off container rental is a great way to keep your job site clean and get rid of the waste.

Add insulation to your attic

Once the temperatures drop, any place where cold can get into your home means you’re losing money. Going up in the attic during the summer can be torture, so that’s one great reason to wait until the temperatures start to drop before doing any work up there. But the pros know another trick – once it cools off you can find drafts in your attic much more easily, which allows you to find and block the leaks better.
