Father’s Day, 2020, is less than three weeks ago. Therefore, if you haven’t already, now is the ideal time to consider what you’re going to buy for the special men in your life. That may include your dad or stepdad, father-in-law, and significant other. Contacting a local roofing company about one of these gift ideas will help ensure that his home is filled with ample amounts of natural light and protected against the elements.
The History of Father’s Day
Inspired by Mother’s Day, Father’s Day became an official national holiday in 1972, following the first celebration by 62 years. The first celebration, held in 1910, took place in the state of Washington. Today, the day is celebrated annually on the third Sunday of June: Father’s Day 2020 falls on Sunday, June 21.

Ideas to Treat Dad
Inspect His Roof
Is your dad or father-in-law just down the street? Head over to his house and inspect his roof from the ground, using binoculars, and in the attic. The project is something that you and he can do together. Look for missing or curling shingles, interior leaks, and damp attic insulation. While you’re at it, you may want to clean his gutters, making sure that rainwater can flow freely before the beginning of the monsoon season.
If he lives far from you, you can contact a local roofing company, like Jenesis Roofing, to come to inspect his roof for abnormal wear and tear or storm damage. A contractor will check the structural integrity and quality of the roof. They will then provide a detailed, written report of their findings and recommendations for ensuring it remains in excellent shape, along with an accurate cost estimate.
Consider a Skylight
Has your dad been hinting at wanting more natural light? Then you may want to consider gifting him with a professionally installed skylight. Aside from adding natural light, skylights can help improve ventilation, reduce energy costs, and add resale value to the home. There are plenty of options for these windows, including electric ones that open to allow in the fresh air, as well as non-moveable skylights. Remember that a local roofing company must professionally install them.
Help Dad Replace His Roof
Help dad replace an aging or damaged roof by contacting a local roofing company. There are a variety of material options such as asphalt shingles and metal roofing that, depending on your preferences, last between 20 and 50 or more years. A new roof offers many benefits, including energy-efficiency, and will be better able to protect him from Colorado’s weather. A professional can provide you with an accurate roof replacement estimate.
