As people in New Jersey, New York and across the nation gather to honor their fathers on June 18th, Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro wants to take a moment to wish all our friends and neighbors a Happy Father’s Day. Summers in the United States have included some type of Father’s Day celebrations for more than a century, although there is some dispute about when and where the first party happened.
A Brief History of Father’s Day in the United States
There are anecdotal reports that the first ceremony to honor fathers was held at a Methodist church in Fairmont, West Virginia in early July, 1908, to memorialize more than 300 men who lost their lives in a mine explosion. Another account claims the first official Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington in 1910 to honor a civil war veteran who raised six children as a single parent. Everyone seems to agree that President Woodrow Wilson held a family Father’s Day party in 1916 and President Coolidge bestowed the national title in 1924. But, even though President Lyndon Johnson officially set aside the third Sunday in June as the universal day to honor our fathers, Congress did not take action to make the date permanent until 1972.
Make 2017 the Most Special Father’s Day Ever With Replacement Windows & Patio Doors
Those who live close enough to their father may enjoy spending the day cooking burgers on the grill, exchanging sentimental (or humorous) cards and swapping family stories. People who live too far away to make a personal visit, will likely call their loved ones on the telephone, video chat on Skype or send packages to show their love and appreciation. We cherish our time spent with parents, and the coffee mugs and custom t-shirts that proudly proclaim our dads are the best in all the world are a reminder of those emotions. But, wouldn’t you like to do something to truly make Father’s Day 2017 special for years to come? Something that really reflects the valuable role your father plays in your life. Have you considered updating Dad’s home with modern, custom-built replacement windows and patio doors? Here are just three of the many ways modern replacement windows and patio doors add value and increase comfort year-round.
#1. Modernizing a home with high-performance ENERGY STAR certified replacement windows instantly improves energy efficiency and makes it easier to heat and cool Dad’s castle compared to homes with single-pane windows that don’t effectively block air and moisture infiltration. According to Energy.gov, homeowners can expect to shave between 10% to 25% off their heating and air conditioning bills after installation is complete. That’s a gift everyone can appreciate.
#2. Saving money isn’t the only gift you’ll be giving Dad when you upgrade his home windows. Think about how much time and energy he will save if he doesn’t have to maintain and repair aging wood frame windows when you opt for our beautiful replacement windows framed with patented Fibrex composite. Fibrex is guaranteed to resist mold, mildew and fading in our hot, muggy summertime and moderately severe winters. So, whether you choose the traditional double-hung replacement windows with tilt-to-clean features, opt to install easy opening sliders, or select casements, awnings and hoppers with single lever operation, every window will look beautiful 10 years, 20 years, possibly even 30 years down the road – without rigorous cleaning and maintenance routines.
#3. Saving time and money is awesome, but don’t forget windows are the first line of defense against people who want to enter your home uninvited. And, custom-built home windows can dramatically transform a bland, boring appearance into a beautiful, welcoming aesthetic. Replacing clear transom glazing with a patterned glass adds a bit of visual texture and artistic expression to a foyer. Specialty shapes can be used to add a touch of elegance or whimsy, depending on where there are installed. And, standard and optional security features, such as foot locks on patio doors and recessed locks, add another layer of security and peace of mind.
