Your Guide to Storm Damage Restoration

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 6.9.18.

When screening storm restoration companies, it can be tempting to sign on with the contractor that promises the quickest turnaround time.  This tactic is often utilized by storm chasing contractors that have the intent to complete as many jobs as possible with little regard to quality workmanship and materials.  Oftentimes these shady operatives fail to pay suppliers and have even been known to disappear after getting a down payment from the homeowner.  While the homeowner can file a complaint with the state to get a contractor’s license taken away, it does not change the fact that they’re left with the task of interviewing new contractors to complete the storm damage restoration.  In addition, the burden falls on the homeowner to try and get the down payment back from the contractor, if they’re able to find them.  We highly recommend verifying a contractor’s reputation on watchdog websites such as the BBB, Facebook, Angie’s List.  Speaking with past customers and asking them the right questions help you understand if the contractor would be a good fit for your project.storm

Homeowners that experience storm damage, often use that opportunity to evaluate all areas of their home to determine which upgrades they want to make.  Decking frequently makes this list and clients often ask for guidance on which maintenance-free decking material makes the most sense for their project.  Hands down, Zuri® Premium Decking by Royal®.  What sets this material apart from others is its ability to closely imitate the aesthetics of exotic woods.  Durability is another category where Zuri® outperforms the competition.

One of the most daunting improvements to shop for are replacement windows.  Products appear to be similar and descriptions are frequently full of hard to understand terms.  With a goal of installing products that are made for our climate and guaranteed to last a lifetime, we gravitate towards SeaonGuard and Infinity® from Marvin Replacement Windows.  Here’s what we like about each:

SeasonGuard: Exclusive to Lindus Construction, SeasonGuard vinyl windows come with triple pane glass and are lauded for their energy efficiency.  They’re built for the Minnesota temperature swings.  We interviewed 17 different manufacturers before choosing the one that would fabricate SeasonGuard windows.

Minnesota Storm Repair Reviews:

"Salesman Corey was our hero when we had to have our roof replaced due to storm damage. He took care of the entire process for us, and made sure we were happy with the end result.  When we decided to replace our siding, and add a porch, we knew we wanted to go with someone who we could trust and was professional, and Lindus Construction fit those requirements. This project gave our home an entirely new look.  They worked hard and kept it professional.  We will use Lindus again!"

"Service Rep, Jason, was excellent. He worked with our insurance company to get the cost of replacement handled under our homeowners insurance. Installers were prompt, kept on task and cleaned up the work site - great job!!!"

"Very happy.  Lindus installed a metal roof a couple years ago, very satisfied.  Guaranteed for life, no more shingles on the lawn after a wind storm."

"We had Lindus come out due to the recent hail storm in our area. We love the LeafGuard® Gutters and Lindus helped assess the damage missed by the insurance adjuster. Very professional and everyone we dealt with was friendly."

"Performed on schedule and professionally. Materials used were excellent and better than the contractors who repaired my neighbors' roofs due to the same storm."

"We had the LeafGuard® Gutters installed and they were prompt and very professional. What a difference the new gutters have made. They may not be the least expensive but worth every penny.  We also had them inspect our roof after the last storm and they were really prompt and helpful. I highly recommend them."
