Partnering with the Right Home Improvement Contractor

The most expensive home improvement is the one you pay for twice.  Homeowners wanting to take on a full exterior home renovation that entails roofing, windows, siding, and gutters should take special care to ensure the home remodeling contractor they’re working with is reputable.  The contractor should schedule the job so that work is performed in the correct order.

The first step should be to replace the roof. This ensures that any shingles that inadvertently come in contact with the siding are not causing damage to new siding.  Windows should always be installed before siding because to allow for materials used in waterproofing and air infiltration to be installed first.

Installing covered gutters at the end of the process ensures that water is properly filtered away from the home, ensuring the maximum lifespan of the new exterior.  Home improvement professionals that have dedicated installers to each product they work on often produce the best results.  That’s because installers are well-versed in the materials and installation techniques they work with each day.

Another perk of working with reliable contractors is that they have solid industry contacts that can be of assistance for aspects of the project that cannot be handled by a general contractor such as radon mitigation, sump pump issues, and foundation repair.

Why We're the Premier Twin Cities Home Remodeling Company:

Lindus Construction has performed several outside projects on our house in Minnetonka. The first job involved the installation of steel roofing on our home. They did a great job cleaning up the area around the house.  The second project that we had them do was to install a new deck.  Lastly, we had Lindus replace our old vinyl siding.  We had them install LP® SmartSide® in blue.  The bottom line is, they don't take shortcuts and use quality materials.

"Jake was very helpful and responsive in getting through this catastrophic event when a huge chunk of ice crashed through our family room ceiling. He was helpful in discussions with insurance company, especially as when they sent out an evaluator he spent less then 20 minutes on the job, then disappeared."
