With trick-or-treating behind us and Thanksgiving approaching it’s time to take a look at this list and see what needs to be done before there’s a change in the weather. Most of these eight items deal with preparing for cold weather by plugging up leaks and making sure you have supplies you’ll need on hand.
Take a look and see if your home needs attention this month and get a jump on the season. And if you’re budgeting for a home improvement project in the future visit us at www.diyornot.com to find cost information and compare how much it costs to do it yourself vs. hire a contractor.

  • Replace filters in heating system and humidifier
  • Clean carpeting, upholstered furniture and draperies
  • Plug air leaks in siding or foundation with spray foam insulation
  • Install heat tape or pipe insulation around pipes near northern exposure
  • Insulate crawlspace walls
  • Inspect exterior lights and outlets
  • Mark driveway with stakes for snow
  • Tune up snow shovel and snowblower
