Fall is here and your home might be in need of a little love. Get your house ready by taking care of these six projects now and you’ll save money in the long run. The costsbelow are based on national averages from over one million users of HomeAdvisor, but might be less expensive for local contractors used in your area.

Fall Lawn Maintenance – Avg. Cost: $262

If you’d like a green lawn in the summer, you’ll need to prep it in the fall. It’s time to aerate, rake, fertilize, weed, and overseed your lawn. You can do it, or you can hire a lawn crew to get it done.

Roof Repair – Avg. Cost: $1,022

Roof repairs can be costly, but taking care of small worries before they become big ones can minimize some of the impact down the road. Have a roofer inspect your roof to identify any potential hazards.

Clean Gutters – Avg. Cost: $189

Making sure that the gutters are clean will guarantee proper water drainage and prevent roof, foundation, and gutter damage. Plus a clean gutter system is a happy gutter system.

Upgrade Windows – Avg. Cost: $5,436

Notice any cool drafts when the temperature dips? You may have a window seal problem. Checking for wear-and-tear now is a great way to save big money from flying out window.

Increase Insulation – Avg. Cost: $1,545

Behind windows, proper insulation can be one of the biggest long-term money saving upgrades you can do for your home. You can save between 5%-30% off your energy bill by doing an energy assessment and upgrading as needed.

Hire a Handyman – Avg. Cost: $612

Your time is very precious and sometimes it can be better to keep a handyman handy for that never-ending “Honey-Do List”.
