New Full Frame Window Replacement in the Twin Cities

The cost to have new windows installed in your home can vary greatly.  One of the most critical factors that impacts price is the installation technique used.  Many contractors cut corners and only offer insert window installation instead of full frame window replacement.  In insert window replacement, the only parts that are replaced are those that are operational.  This approach shrinks down the glass size.  It also does not take into consideration any of the water or air infiltration problems that can happen on the window frame.  Full frame window replacement takes longer but allows a contractor to fully address any underlying issue that might be occurring with a home’s windows.

Professional Insulation Inspection & Installation

Another project that should only be entrusted to an experienced contractor is attic insulation.  Without the proper skillset and installation techniques, a poorly insulated home can lead to costly ice dam damage.  Experienced contractors understand the importance of attic air sealing in addition to insulation.  Discoloration on insulation can signal that there is attic air movement occurring which can cause ice dams to form.  Using diagnostic tools, like infrared imaging and blower doors, reputable contractors can understand where your home is losing energy.  This will allow them to create a plan to make your home as energy efficient and comfortable as possible.

Professional Roof Installation Comes with Long Lasting Warranties

Before opting to have a new roof installed, it’s important to understand the type of warranty that accompanies it.  Many homeowners are surprised to learn that GAF asphalt shingles are accompanied with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers both labor and materials.  This warranty is even longer than what most metal roofing manufacturers offer.

Outstanding Siding Replacement by Trusted Contractors

Siding is another home improvement that is offered in an array of materials.  Popular selections include vinyl, metal, cement board, and engineered wood.  Out of these four, vinyl is the least desirable because of its shorter lifespan, ability to fade, and limited durability.  Some contractors choose to push vinyl siding over products like LP® SmartSide® and steel because it is easier to install.

"Had my entire house equipped with new gutters. Tyrell, the foreman, was awesome. He contacted me before they started, went over their plan to ensure it matched my expectations and then got after it. He checked in a couple times to maintain our alignment on the project. When he was done made sure my place was clean and even hauled off old gutters. He’s the kind of guy you’d hire if you could. He’s that good!! Very very happy!!"

"It was an all day job that was done to perfection. My new exterior door is beautiful and the storm door is top-notch. The job turned out better than I imagined. Wow! The workers were courteous, cleaned up well, and ensured I knew the mechanics of my new doors. Would highly recommend Lindus to anyone."
