Insurance & Restoration After Storm Damage

Homeowners that have a solid working relationship with their insurance agent often find themselves in the best possible situation after a storm hits.  It’s wise to have an annual meeting with your insurance agent to discuss the intricacies of your policy and make certain that you have proper coverage.  Having a list of reputable contractors to contact after your home is damaged by Mother Nature lessens your chance of making an emotional decision and pairing up with a shady storm chasing contractor with bad online reviews.  Many times, storm chasing contractors charge homeowners a price for their project and cut corners on items such as ice and water shield.  This saves them money but lessens the lifespan of a roof.

After a storm passes through and you’ve verified there are no further direct threats to your home, such as live electricity, homeowners should first contact their insurance agent and then a reliable contractor.  This puts you towards the top of the list with both parties.  Homeowners have two years after a storm hits to restore their property.  Those that wait until the last possible moment to start the insurance restoration process often end up with poor results.

Opt for a New Metal Roof for Your Twin Cities Home

For homeowners that opt to have a steel roof installed after a storm, experience a high satisfaction rate when they choose one made by Englert.  The roof is accompanied with a Kynar finish that has a high reflectivity and low emissivity.  The finish is accompanied with an industry-leading 35-year warranty.  Englert metal roofs lower a home’s cooler costs because of their high reflectivity.

Tips for Planning a New Deck Installation

While it can be tempting to keep a deck’s current framing when switching from wood to composite, this approach is not advised, as more framing is often needed.  This is because a composite deck needs one foot on center.  Bear in mind that the framing and footings of the deck are not the most expensive components of the project, so the cost savings of reusing old components are minimal.  When it comes to your home, taking the easy route often ends up costing big time in terms of time and money because the work often needs to be redone.

Stunning Patio Doors for Your Twin Cities Home

Homeowners looking for new patio doors can choose between sliding and French doors.  From an energy efficiency standpoint, French doors are preferable.  This is because they have lower air infiltration rates because of the door’s locking mechanism.

Storm Damage Restoration Reviews:

"Josh and another young fellow arrived on time and did a fantastic job replacing my LeafGuard® Gutters and downspouts due to hail damage.  Lindus is one company on whom a customer can depend, from start to finish. Everything was cleaned up afterwards! Thank you very much!"

The installation went smoothly. The supervisor suggested some additional drainage maneuvers for spots with heavy fall off and I appreciated that. We got replacement after hail damage."

"I had very positive experience with Lindus Construction. They showed up a day earlier than scheduled to replace my LeafGuard® Gutters which were damaged during last summer's hail storm.  The clean-up and removal of the old gutters was exceptional.   I thank Lindus for the extra effort and the professionalism they exhibited to complete the project."
