Craig’s Metal Roofing and Insulation Project in Hudson, WI
At Lindus Construction, we view each home improvement project we take on as an opportunity to earn a customer for life. It was in 2016 when we first worked on Craig’s North Hudson, WI home. He had purchased the property several months earlier and had come to realize that the property’s mature trees were no match for his home’s gutters. Rather than continue to concern himself with the unclogging of his gutters, he chose to have our craftsmen install new LeafGuard® Brand Gutters. Having earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal, he felt confident in choice.
Having been so pleased with the caliber of work and the impeccable clean-up, we were top of mind when it came time to for Craig to explore the replacement of his roof in his 1970’s era home. Our inspection discovered areas with missing shingle granules and algae growth, which is common on roofs with substantial tree coverage. Rather than replace his current roof with asphalt shingles, this time Craig chose to have our craftsmen install a metal roof. Here’s why this proved to be a wise choice for his home.
Ice Dam Resistance: An ice dam is a sheet of ice that forms on the edge of a roof. Rather than permitting snow to exit the roof, the sheet of ice backs up onto the roof, beneath the shingles, into the soffits, and even into the interior of the home, leading to water damage. The steep pitch of Craig’s metal roof will allow it to shed ice and snow, making the formation of an ice dam highly unlikely.
Warranty: Craig’s Englert metal roof comes with Englert’s 35-year, non-prorated finish warranty. This protects against premature chalking, chipping, cracking, fading, or peeling. To offer ultimate peace of mind, Lindus Construction offers a lifetime workmanship guarantee that stipulates that if any products fail due to improper installation practices, the client is protected.
Potential for Insurance Discounts: Many insurance companies offer discounts for the installation of products that have a low probability of having a hail damage insurance claim, such as metal roofing. Many insurance companies also recognize that metal roofs are more resistant to fire and wind and they adjust their rates to reflect this.

An additional goal of Craig’s project was to create a more energy efficient home. To accomplish this, our craftsmen added two inches of roof foam prior to installing the metal roof. This added an insulation value of R-10. With this addition, Craig should see a noticeable decline in his energy bills.
After Craig’s project was completed, his salesperson, Jesse, stopped in to check in with Craig regarding his project. Jesse was happy to report that Craig found all work completed to his satisfaction and that he is happy to recommend Lindus Construction to friends and family.
