A Word About Winter Deck & Window Replacement

Our team answers homeowner questions every weekend on WCCO 830 AM from 9:00 am-10:00 am.  Have your most pressing home improvement questions answered by calling 651-989-9226 or texting 81807.  Here’s the must-know information our COO, Andy Lindus, shared on 11.10.18.

While not all home improvements can take place in the winter months, the season does allow homeowners the ability to carefully evaluate the intricacies of future projects.  Weather conditions may prevent MN deck builders from full deck completion, but many times they are able to install footings in the late fall so that the composite deck building can be completed in early spring.  The number of wood decks we install continues to diminish as more homeowners gravitate towards maintenance-free materials, such as Zuri®.  Manufactured to imitate the look of exotic wood and with UV light-resisting technology, the decking is designed to maintain its looks for years to come.  Paired with a Fortress ™ steel railing system, there’s no need for seasonal deck maintenance.

Fast Facts about Winter Window Replacement

One home improvement project that can be completed year-round is home window replacement.  This is because seasoned window installers are able to work swiftly so that the rough opening is exposed for a minimal amount of time.  Appropriate winter home humidity levels are dependent on a home’s temperature.  However, a good rule of thumb is under 30%.  When humidity levels rise, the environment is created for frost and condensation to form on windows.  This happens when warm, moist air comes in contact with the cold surface of the window.  Condensation forms and then almost immediately turns into frost.  Builder grade windows are more susceptible to window condensation than custom-built windows.  That’s part of the reason why we feel so confident offering our valued clients SeasonGuard and Infinity® from Marvin Replacement Windows.  Running exhaust fans when cooking and bath fans after showering, can go a long way to keep winter home humidity levels in check.  Failure to do so can result in mold and mildew formation, which can be a threat to your family’s health.  Blower door testing, moisture meters, digital microscopes, borescopes, humidistats, and infrared imaging harnessed by a reputable professional can allow you to understand spots where your home is losing energy.

Deck & Window Replacement Reviews:

"We had 12 windows replaced in our home. We also had glass in a door and some rotted wood and fascia replaced. The windows come with a lifetime warranty and are super energy efficient. Everything went well from start to finish. The window installers were very experienced and knowledgeable.  We would definitely call Lindus Construction again. Our neighbors also commented on the quality of their work."

"Very pleased with Lindus' replacement of my rotting deck. It wasn't an easy project, but the work team was unfailingly professional and they were perfectionists about their work. I'm thrilled with my new composite deck, which likely will outlast me! It would hold a tank, and is a handsome addition to my backyard."

"We had Luke from Lindus come out to give us an estimate to demo our existing wood deck and replace it with a low-maintenance, composite deck. We were very impressed with his proposal and ordered one.  The deck turned out fantastic. We specified treated lumber framing and Azek® for the decking and trim. Color coordinated steel railings and integrated stair and post lighting complement the project. The crew couldn't have been better.  We are totally satisfied with the deck and with Lindus."

"We were very satisfied with the whole project. The workers were very professional and friendly.  We loved the new deck design! We have also hired Lindus to do some remodeling work in our kitchen which will be started shortly. We went with Lindus because we had confidence in the "Lindus" name and knew that they stood behind their work."

"I have had Lindus Construction install LeafGuard® gutters last year and install new exterior doors this year.  Their work is excellent.  I recommend them and will get bids on them for future work."
