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.

"I appreciated: working with the Lindus rep, Logan, who moved the project along quickly for us; the delivery ahead of time so we could paint the downspouts to match the house color; and the installers who worked quickly and went the extra mile to paint screws to color match the downspouts. Very satisfied with all aspects of work."

Salesperson was knowledgeable and helpful with insurance due to hail damage. We had our previous LeafGuard® Gutters over 20 years. Replaced with new LeafGuard® Gutters due to the hail damage. Installation went great. Clean up was good. Highly recommend.
