Millboard® decking is quickly becoming a popular selection for homeowners in the Twin Cities and Western Wisconsin.  Although it is a composite material, it gives the appearance of wood.  The material does not require painting or staining.  In addition, it does not get too hot to the touch in the summer months.  Another perk of Millboard® decking is that it does not get slippery when wet.  Millboard® decking is also a cost-effective material.


Prior to hiring a contractor, it’s important to do your homework.  It’s wise to read online reviews and talk to their past and current customers.  If your project is new construction, ask to meet the builder on-site at a current project so that you can observe the process and ask questions.  It’s often a warning sign if a contractor has the ability to start a new construction project much faster than others in the field are able to.

It’s particularly important to vet an insulation contractor because if they perform the job incorrectly, they can do more harm than good.  It is important that the insulation contractor is attic air sealing and ventilation, rather than just adding more insulation.  Without this, condensation, ice dams, and attic mold are likely to form.

See How Attic Insulation Is Installed: 

It’s important that your contractor can explain their recommended approach to ventilation for your home.  This is because ventilation techniques can vary.  An intake in between each roof truss allows for maximum ventilation.  Hidden soffit systems work well in this scenario.  An insufficient amount of intake is more likely to create issues than not enough roof vents.  With the proper amount of outdoor air being pulled in, there is not enough force to cause warm air to exit the attic.  The goal in the winter is to try and get the attic the same temperature as it is outside.  This provides the best preventative against ice dams and attic condensation.

Lindus Construction Reviews:

"Yesterday, Chris came to my townhouse to inspect my insulation. Chris was professional, courteous, and shared great information with me. A less ethical company could have easily tried to sell me additional insulation. But Chris, who represents Lindus really well, shared with me the status of my insulation and let me know there was no need to add or replace insulation. Please know how much I appreciate his professionalism and honesty. For all future projects i will turn to Lindus. I will tell my friends and family to do the same."

"Lindus removed and replaced the insulation in my attic by first sealing around all recessed lighting cans, speakers and HVAC vents using custom made insulation boxes and spray foam insulation and then blowing cellulose insulation throughout the attic. The Lindus Representative on the job, Randall Bowman, was a pleasure to work with. He explained all work to be done, was on site before 8AM each day to get the crew started and stayed on site during all critical steps in the process, for example the spray foaming operation. He was professional, courteous and was well informed on the particulars of each step in the process. The men in the crew he supervised where also courteous and respectful of the portions of my home they had to access to complete the work they were doing. After removing and replacing the insulation, the job site was cleaned up nicely both inside and out. Mr. Bowman and his team left me with a high level of confidence to use Lindus in the future for other projects around my home."

"Lindus has been my partner for multiple home improvement projects including re-siding with beautiful LP® siding, installing LeafGuard® Gutters, re-roofing and more. Most recently, Tristan and his crew replaced my old wood deck with a beautiful maintenance-free deck. The crew was professional and did beautiful work. I am so pleased. Lindus is my go-to partner for my home's construction needs. Thanks, Lindus, for always living up to my very high expectations!"
