Home window replacement can take place in the winter months.  However, it’s important that a window replacement contractor be experienced and careful when working around the home’s siding, especially if it’s vinyl.  That’s because vinyl siding can become brittle, especially when it’s cold out.  For this reason, blades should be sharp to prevent cracking.  A window that holds up well in the extreme weather conditions of the Twin Cities is the Infinity® from Marvin window.  They are made from fiberglass and do not experience the expansion and contraction that builder grade windows can.  It’s wise to steer clear of builder grade windows, as they often offer the bare minimum features needed to meet building code.  Most manufacturers have several tiers of windows and it’s wise to invest in the best possible window offered.  Many homeowners opt to replace their siding and their windows at the same time in order to have the best possible outcome.  However, there’s no rule that says all a home’s windows must be replaced at the same time.  For those on a budget, replacing a few windows at a time can be a more economical choice.

LP® SmartSide® is a material that homeowners in Western Wisconsin and the Twin Cities have a lot of success with.  It’s made in Two Harbors, Minnesota and is manufactured to withstand our area’s extreme temperature fluctuations.  It wins high marks for its durability, beauty, and longevity.  With market conditions the way they currently are, LP® SmartSide® is in the same price category as vinyl siding.  An additional appealing aspect about LP® SmartSide® is that several different profiles and styles can be used on the same home to create a custom look.  Best of all, LP® SmartSide® gives the look of wood without the maintenance.

"Lindus never disappoints! I had new windows installed last year in my condo which I love. I needed some pulls installed on my windows to make it easier to pull the top window down. They contacted me immediately, and sent Wayne out to take a look. Wayne came back out in a couple of days and installed the new window pulls. He was efficient and very professional plus...there was no charge! Everyone I have dealt with from Lindus is top notch. Keep up the good work, Lindus!"
