Lindus’ Recommended Roofing Shingles

A home’s roof has a deep impact on its curb appeal.  Homeowners looking to make a statement should consider GAF Glenwood® shingles.  These ultra-dimensional shingles imitate the aesthetics of cedar shake roofing without the maintenance.  Even more impressive is the fact that they come with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers both labor and materials.

Insulation for Your Twin Cities Home

An area of the home that often benefits from insulation is the crawlspace, as exposed dirt invites exterior air and contaminants, such as radon, into your home.  To correctly do this, spray foam insulation should be applied to the floor, walls, and ceiling.  Full encapsulation in tandem with the use of a dehumidifier allows for better temperature regulation within the crawlspace.  To determine if your home has unsafe levels of radon, have it tested.  While mitigation can cost thousands of dollars, failure to address escalated radon levels can lead to cancer.

Go Behind the Scenes on a Twin Cities Insulation Project Completed by Lindus Construction: 

Any time a homeowner is evaluating the need for a new roof, the home’s insulation and ventilation should be inspected by a reputable professional.  Poor attic insulation and ventilation can lead to an array of issues including elevated HVAC bills, ice dams, shortened roof lifespan, and even attic mold.  What many homeowners fail to understand is that attic air sealing is just as important as the amount of insulation within the home.  Vulnerable areas include the attic access point, can lights, and roof penetrations.

"We got a quote from Doug for some soffit & fascia. Gabe came out with his crew and did an excellent job. I'd like to pay my compliments to how his crew worked and to Doug for the estimate. It was really beneficial for the insulation of our house."

"I was very happy with the free insulation estimate I received from the Lindus rep. He took the time to walk me and my father-in-law through a thermal scan of all the leaky spots in my attic - and basement, bonus! - and was honest and forthright about the work they do and the best and most economical options available to us to improve ambient temperature control in these areas."

"We had Lindus bid on our roof replacement and also remove and replace our LeafGuard® Gutters. Communication was great through the entire process, we were provided great information and options. The removal and replacement of the gutters was done right on schedule and completed quickly. Overall just very professional and I would have zero concerns trusting them for any job.

"We are very happy with the gutter and roofing project at our home. It took only two days for the complete roofing (with lifetime shingles) and underlayment project!  The next day the gutter crew came out and completed our 163 feet of LeafGuard® Gutters.  Everyone was friendly knew their job! They were a well-oiled machine."
