Window Replacement Tips

Full frame window replacement can entail cutting or removing some of the home’s siding in order for proper installation to take place.  This approach varies from insert window replacement, where often only the sash is removed.  While cheaper, this approach can create problems.

For example, during insert casement window replacement, the only part of the window that would be replaced is the component that moves.  This makes it impossible for a reputable window contractor to inspect for water and air infiltration issues.  This is particularly concerning because previous installation errors are major contributors to the aforementioned quandaries.

Roof Replacement Tips

When it comes to asphalt roof replacement, it’s foolish to retain the services of a contractor that simply bids off of satellite images and forgoes the opportunity to visually inspect the roof for defects.

A visual inspection can reveal evidence of rot on the roof deck.  This will increase installation costs and should be brought to the homeowner’s attention if possible prior to work commencing.

An attic inspection can also reveal if insulation and ventilation upgrades are necessary.  Consequences of improper roof installation include attic mold, roof leaks, and loose shingles.

Now more than ever, homeowners have the resources to research their roofing contractor in order to ensure the company they are working with is trusted and reliable.  They should be able to provide references of past customers and show examples of their previous work.  Signs your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan can include curling or cracked shingles, loose flashing, and a wet attic.

"Four years ago Lindus replaced our roof. By far the best installation we have ever had on the house. They have above and beyond professional workmanship. I walk my roof twice a year and no problems at all. I wish I could say that of the previous work done on the roof.  I wholeheartedly recommend them for whatever needs you have around your house."

"Lindus Construction replaced our windows about 4 years ago and we just love the windows but more so their attention to details is outstanding. They walked us through the process and kept in touch with us throughout the installation process. They cleaned up after themselves as if they hadn't even been there. They also contacted us after the installation also they would answers questions anytime we called them after the installation promptly."
