A Reliable Window Contractor

One of our largest client bases for home window replacement is owners of homes less than 15 years old.  This is due to the fact that contractors often opt to install builder grade windows. Oftentimes vinyl, these windows meet the minimal standards allowed by code and are susceptible to allowing drafts in.

When blower door tested, the air infiltration ratings leave significant room for improvement because their glass packs are poor in quality.  When at all possible, strive to invest in the higher caliber of house windows a manufacturer makes and avoid value window lines.  Investigate the product warranties offered by the window manufacturer as well as those offered by the contractor to address workmanship.

Here’s an Example of Home Window Replacement Gone Wrong:

Infinity® from Marvin Windows

A fiberglass window line our company has had repeated success with is Infinity® from Marvin Windows.  What attracted us to this double pane window line was the fact that infrared imaging, which shows the temperature of the inside glass, rivaled triple windows on both warm and cool days.

The framing on Infinity® from Marvin Windows has minimal expansion and contraction.  This is a vital component of a reliable window, particularly in the Twin Cities which is accustomed to significant temperature swings.

 SeasonGuard Windows

SeasonGuard vinyl windows are exclusive to Lindus Construction.  They’re designed specifically for the extreme Twin Cities temperature swings.  In addition to our lifetime workmanship guarantee, the windows also come with manufacturer warranties on all moving parts.  There’s even a glass breakage warranty.

A Reputable Roofing Company

While there are many home improvement tasks that homeowners can easily tackle themselves, one that should only be entrusted to a reputable professional is asphalt roofing.

A rookie roofing contractor can easily make mistakes that may not be evident until a roof fails prematurely.  By that time, they are often out of business and are forced to call in a different contractor to address the issues, often without compensation from the original installer.

We’ve also encountered our share of roofing nightmares because inexperienced contractors opted to reuse roof vents or failed to take a hard look at insulation and attic air sealing.  Recently, we were called by a homeowner that had a storm chasing contractor replace their roof eight years prior.  There was a substantial amount of dry rot because ice and water shield had not been properly installed.  As a result, wind driven rains had penetrated the roof edge and caused the roof deck to rot out in several places.

"We had Matt Puhl come out and talk to us about some windows. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  Jake and Jim were the guys that came out and installed all of our windows and did a marvelous job. They were clean, courteous and took a lot of pride in their final product and it showed, so much in fact that I bought the guys lunch! I knew that Lindus was top quality products, what I didn't know was that it was such great service."
