Minnesota Siding Showdown

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 Vice President of Sales, Alex Lindus, shared on 4.28.18.

One of the biggest reasons why our company has lasted nearly 40 years is that we’re committed to installing products guaranteed to last a lifetime.  Prior to introducing a product to our client base, we conduct our own internal testing to see if the product will stand the test of time.  In the realm of maintenance-free siding, two of the biggest names in today’s marketplace are LP® SmartSide® and James Hardie®.  The biggest differences between the two are the materials they are comprised of.  James Hardie® is comprised of fiber cement.  An alarming fact about fiber cement products is that they can contain silica & fly ash which pose health hazards if they become airborne.  LP® SmartSide® does not manufacture their products with these elements and uses zinc borate which does not come with the risk of health hazards. We also appreciated the fact that LP® SmartSide®’s installation specifications have remained consistent since the material was introduced to the marketplace.  Whereas, James Hardie® continues to update their installation requirements.  When it comes to installation, LP® SmartSide® does not require special equipment.  It can also be installed in longer lengths, creating a more aesthetically pleasing end result.  Our technicians also appreciate that the longer lengths speed up installation times.

A noteworthy aspect that we appreciate about LP® SmartSide® is its versatility.  The color selections are endless and homeowners have the ability to create a custom color.  Even more impressive, is the 30-year warranty that accompanies LP® SmartSide® prefinished with Diamond Kote®.  This industry-leading warranty offers the ultimate peace of mind, as it guarantees no fading, chipping, or cracking.  When a Western Wisconsin homeowner turned to us to replace the failed wooden siding on her farmhouse, we suggested a white LP® siding installation with a three inch reveal which allowed  the century old home to maintain its historic charm.

An exciting development in the LP® products we offer our clients is the new post wraps we’re now offering.  In the past, if our customers needed posts wrapped, LP® trim needed to be cut to size before wrapping could commence.  While the end result was beautiful, it was labor intensive.  New developments now allow us to install a wrap that is sized appropriately in four pieces that lock together with ease in order to provide a seamless, wood grain look.  While it’s a newer offering on our part, we feel it’s already being well-received by our client base.

LP® Siding Installation Reviews:

"Both guys were friendly and greeted myself and my wife if we were coming or going. They kept me posted of any issues and where they were with the job and when they would be finished. Too often in business we only hear about the bad employees and bad work.  Not with these guys. Can’t say enough about how great it was. Because of these two individuals I will DEFINITELY hire Lindus Construction again."

"This was a big job.  Once they started, it all moved very quickly. They had to do some extra work because of water damage discovered when they removed the old siding, but the charge for repairs was lower than expected."

"They always had a smile on their face.  We felt in "good hands" with these guys.  They knew what had to be done and they got it done.  Good hard working guys."
