Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19th! You can get your dad the predictable toolset for Father’s Day, but what dad wouldn’t enjoy kicking back while a team of professionals do the work? There are many ways to improve a loved one’s home in ways that keep on giving for years to come. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
If your parents still live in the same house they bought in the 1970s, then it’s likely they’re losing a lot of money to old windows that aren’t energy-efficient. Older windows are often single paned with a weak seal that wears away over time. This means that their windows can’t regulate temperatures as well, allowing cold air to seep in during the winter and heat to permeate during the summer. Predictably, having older windows means that you also have higher heating and cooling costs. New replacement windows are double- or triple-paned, with a special gas inside that regulates temperatures and prevents condensation. Newer seals are tighter, keeping moisture out, which prevents rot and mildew. Buying your dad replacement windows is a great way to show you care as well as help your parents save money in the coming years. Plus, our Great View windows tilt inwards for easy cleaning, making them a considerate gift for aging parents.
Vinyl siding is another great Father’s Day gift that keeps on giving. If your parents have never replaced their siding on your childhood home, then it’s probably due for an update. Check out our blog on vinyl siding to tell if your parents’ siding is showing any telltale signs of wear. Vinyl siding is a popular choice among homeowners because of its long life (15-20 years!), its neat appearance, and its low maintenance needs. Buying your dad new siding for his home is a great investment that will make taking care of the home easier and will also help the home make a great impression should your parents ever decide to sell.
Replacing an old roof is another home maintenance task that your dad would likely appreciate on Father’s Day. Your dad can stay safely on the ground while our professionals install a brand new roof. You may want to check our blog on roofing to see if your roof is showing any signs of wear. Many people don’t bother to think about their roof until loose shingles start showing up in the yard. It’s best to fix the roof before this happens; catching damage early is a great way to prevent more expensive water damage later. Your dad will be relieved to nip a problem in the bud before it becomes a huge headache! Plus, a new roof will last for 20-25 years!
