Fall is a great time to stain your deck. Because the weather is cool, you can get a few coats down in a day. It is also a good time because you can protect your wood from the harsh winter weather ahead.
Fall is also a great time to take care of your basement or crawl space water issues. The frigid temperatures of winter can wreak havoc on your home’s foundation, basement, and crawl space. Snow storms lead to an excess of water in your yard, around your home. Cold temperatures cause the ground to contract and expand, putting pressure on your foundation walls.
The worst part is, you may not even notice the problem at first. But, when spring rolls around the temperatures increase, your basement will flood and cracks will form in your foundation walls.
