Debbie’s Minnetonka, MN Asphalt Roofing Project

Having been in business since 1979, we’ve had the pleasure of visiting thousands of homes in both the Twin Cities and western Wisconsin.  Our mission is always to improve on the home’s current state, while taking care to complement architectural features.  When Debbie consulted our team for an estimate, she was interested in learning what roofing options were available to her.  At the time, her Minnetonka home had a cedar shake roof.  We could appreciate the distinctive look of the roof and were able to imagine just how beautiful the shakes had looked when they’d been installed new.  However, the Minnesota winters had taken their toll and the roof now looked tired and worn.  It was evident that a new roof was a necessity.

GAF Glenwood
Before & After

Owning a cedar shake roof isn’t for the faint of heart.  There are several reasons why homeowners that have them seek out maintenance-free alternatives.  Cedar shake roofs should be inspected on an annual basis for indications of aging, rot, and insect damage.  In order to maintain their appearance, they should be professionally cleaned every 4-5 years.  Many insurance companies increase premiums on these types of roofs because of their flammability.

In this instance, a metal roof would have looked both unnatural to the home and in the neighborhood.  Basic shingles simply wouldn’t have done this pristine home justice.  We knew we needed a solution that offered the wood shake appearance without the continuous maintenance.  Ultimately, we felt the most confident recommending GAF Glenwood® Lifetime Designer Shingles.  In addition to being fire safe and low-maintenance, they come with a 50 year, non-prorated warranty that covers both labor and materials.

Lindus Construction Reviews from Minnetonka, MN Homeowners

"We recently had the Lindus team complete two projects for us. One was gutters and soffits. The following year, we had them install a new roof and help bring our ceiling insulation up to code. Both jobs were done on time and within budget. There was one minor issue upon completion, which they resolved quickly and efficiently. We highly recommend Lindus, Great team!"

Lindus Construction has performed several outside projects on our house in Minnetonka. The first job involved the installation of steel roofing on our home. They did a great job cleaning up the area around the house.  The second project that we had them do was to install a new deck.  Lastly, we had Lindus replace our old vinyl siding.  We had them install LP® SmartSide® in blue.  The bottom line is, they don't take shortcuts and use quality materials.

"We could not be happier with the warranty/repair work done by our team, Austin and Hunter, on our LeafGuard® Gutters. It was a big job, and a section of our roof is high, but everything went off in a timely manner and without a snag. Lindus stands by the quality of their work which is unusual these days, and the work done by these two young men reflects that."

"I contacted Lindus because a tree fell onto our house and did some damage to the roof and gutters. Lindus had years ago installed LeafGuard® Gutters on our home so I contacted them hoping they could do repairs and install new gutters. They came right away, give us an estimate and did the work in a timely way. Great workmanship, friendly workers, nice staff. They were a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend them."

"We have used Lindus for many home projects.  Lindus recently finished an update on our kitchen. Again the quality of work was outstanding from the person who came to give the original bid to the electric work that was finished this week... including the decorator, the countertop and sink people, the tile people, the workers who took care of coordinating all the subcontractors, and all the behind the scenes folks.  I wish that I had the names of everyone so that I could thank them personally in this review.  BEST BUSINESS EVER!"
