Twin Cities Winter Window Replacement

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.

"Lindus Construction has done several projects for us over the years: LeafGuard® Gutters, new roof, new doors, new soffits and facia on the upper level, residing of a portion of the upper level, re-insulation of the attic to help us reduce/eliminate ice dams. They've performed admirably on all of these projects and have been great to work with. We've been pleased with all their work and gladly recommend them to others."

"We received excellent service from Lindus Construction - from the salesperson to quality control inspector, everyone demonstrated great attention to detail and delivered high quality work. Lindus replaced the roof, gutters, and a small piece of the siding of our home. On every step of the project the team was very responsive in following up, communicating, and completing all of our requests. One Friday two people worked until 7:30 PM to ensure that the forecasted rain over the weekend will not damage an exposed part of the siding. I would highly recommend Lindus Construction."

"I have been a customer of this company for many years. They have done all kinds of projects for me from siding to repairing woodpecker damage. So far, I have no complaints which is remarkable for someone like me. I tend to be hypercritical. They are always on time and do that they say they will do when they say they will do it."

"The new window that was installed in the lower family room is beautiful.  Everything your team did with respect to the install of both windows and patio door has been exemplary.  I could not be happier with the results.  Your team members were respectful, professional, and fun to visit with.  The city inspector has already come and gone and signed off on both permits.  He found everything to be top-notch."
