As the summer starts to wind down, the weather starts getting cooler, and holiday season starts creeping closer, many homeowners find themselves in a little bit of a lull. Maybe there’s a lull because the kids are back in school, the vacations are over and there’s nothing to do. Or maybe we just need something new like a refresh to get energized for finishing the year on a high note. Either way, something needs to change.
