Top Spring Home Improvement Projects

We keep hearing meteorologists say spring is right around the corner!  It is hard to comprehend this notion for many of us Midwesterners due to how painfully cold and snow heavy our winters can be.  With spring just around the corner, here is a list of top home improvement projects that you should consider having done as soon as the snow thaws.

Roof Replacement or Repair:  Cold temperatures and heavy snowfall take a toll on the exterior of your home, especially your roof that could have received damage such as losing shingle granules, moisture seeping in between the cracks and creases or damage from an ice dam problem. You should have a reputable contractor come out and inspect your roof for signs of disintegration and curling or peeling of your shingles. Your roof is one of the first lines of defense when it comes to severe weather and we all know that springtime can bring storms.

Gutter Installation: If you don’t have any rain gutters on your home, it is completely defenseless against the raging rainstorms that can occur in the Midwest.  You also risk rain eroding the soil around you home, which can leak into your basement. If you still have traditional gutters on your home, it is essential to clean out the organic debris that has accumulated in them over the last season to avoid overflowing. If you are ready to experience the modern age of a one-piece seamless gutter system, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters, are the only gutter system to receive the Good Housekeeping Seal of approval.

Inspect your Deck: Beautiful cedar decks are very popular in the area that we live and are a point of pride for a lot of homeowners. Inspect your deck for any rotting or warped boards. Examine the stain on it to see how it weather the cold winter and if you think your deck is in need of full replacement consider using composite decking.  It has taken the deck industry by storm, now surpassing cedar decking installation, and requires minimal maintenance if any at all.


Spruce Up Your Siding: Your siding plays an important role in protecting your home during the harsh winters just like your roof does. If it is time for an update to add more curb appeal, you definitely need to consider installing LP® SmartSide® that will offer your home the warmth and beauty of traditional wood, with the durability and workability of engineered wood. LP® SmartSide® is also backed by an industry leading 5/50 year transferable limited warranty. The manufacturing of this product is also backed by the green initiative by using the entire log in their manufacturing process and any wood waste is re-purposed to help fuel their mills. LP also participates in SFI® certified forest management and fiber sourcing systems to insure that their wood they used comes from well-managed forests.

Lindus Construction Reviews:

"Patrick and Robbie worked through some tough weather (rain, sleet, snow) as well having to navigate snow piles and deep snow. Their workmanship and cleanup has been "top notch"!  Patrick, as the lead, has kept us well informed throughout the process and demonstrated a fine example of excellent leadership to Robbie and to us as Lindus customers."

"I had very good experience with Lindus. They showed up when they said they would. The workmen did a great job on installing the siding on my house. While they were doing the job if we had any questions they were happy to answer them. The house looks great and I won't have to worry about the siding on the house for a long time."

"Lindus Construction just completed another job for us, they installed a new stairway and landing going up to our garage loft. They did a beautiful job they used the TimberTech® AZEK maintenance-free composite, that looks great. I would rate them 5 out of 5; this is the third job they have done for us. They are true craftsman, excellent workmanship. I would highly recommend them."

"Pete and I were extremely happy with the work and the quality of the windows. It was also reassuring to hear the building inspector state he would only consider 2 contractors to work on his house, and Lindus was one of them! In fact he has already contracted with you for new siding on his house next summer."

"During the process, they discovered a sag in the overhanging roof over my porch area. I was aware of the sag before, but seeing the exposed structure made it obvious that the problem would only get worse over time. They designed and installed a beam and post structure to properly support the roof and straighten out the sagging area. Once all the work was done, the new beam and posts looked great. I am very happy with the quality of workmanship, and all the people from Lindus that I dealt with were great. I would recommend Lindus to anyone and everyone."
