Preparing Your Home for Fall

Jul 23, 2021 | Home Improvement

Don’t get mad… but it is time to start preparing for Fall.

As true New Englanders, we are all about preparing for the next season! And guess what? Fall is around the corner!

If July 2021 has taught us anything, it is the importance of moving water AWAY from our home. This becomes even more important as the cooler months arrive.

A key defender in diverting water is your gutters. Before the fall leaves come, make sure your gutters are clear and in good working condition. Turner Home Improvement Contractors, LLC does full gutter replacement, however, if you are looking for a gutter repair or cleaning service we recommend reaching out to your neighbors for recommendations. Our expert gutter team will design and make your custom gutters on-site, giving you the best possible fit.

If you are really looking to avoid having to clean your gutters altogether, ask for gutter guards. They are a great option to add on when ordering your new gutters as they will help block leaves and other tree debris. No matter the season, having functioning gutters that move water away from your house is the best.

Even more important than gutters is your roof! Did you self-check your roof this past spring? Did you opt to wait? Wait no more!

Although Turner Home Improvement can replace your roof during winter, it is best to have a roof replaced during Fall. As such, Fall is a notoriously busy season for roofing, so it is best to call sooner rather than later.

Check your roof for:

–  interior and exterior stains or streaks

–  missing shingles, cracks, or other damages

–  moss or other plant growth

–  granules in gutters or downspouts

–  excessive spacing at any flashing points

If you see any of those warning signs it is important to have your roof evaluated.

Please note Turner Home Improvement will not repair roofs that are over 20 years of age. Roofing system technology has changed over the years, and we want our customers to have a full worry-free roof installed correctly. Repairing a roof that is around 20 years of age doesn’t come with that same peace of mind as a newly installed roof with a 50-year manufacture warranty. Plus, constantly repairing your roof can end up costing you more money in the long run, especially if there is a major failure.


Knowing how busy Fall gets, we actually have a special “Gear Up For Fall” promotion! Your new roof can mean new school supplies to kids in your town! You can also drop off new school supplies to our office at 109 Commerce St. Glastonbury, CT.



Take time this Fall to protect your home for the upcoming winter. If you have questions regarding your existing gutters or roof, give us a call or fill out our online form. We can easily set up a free estimate appointment to provide our professional evaluation. Our team can also review financing options during your appointment.
