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 had the Lindus guys out this past week to install our 2 new Provia outside storm doors. They arrived at the time that they said they would and did a great job with the door installation. We are a big fan of the Lindus company. We have used them for steel roofing installation, LP® SmartSide®, and composite deck installation. In every construction project, Lindus demonstrated excellent workmanship. We would strongly recommend this construction company for all of your home update projects."

"Lindus did a great job with our home project.  Team communicated progress and timing of the project, before and throughout the installation.  There were a few minor issues, which they addressed in a timely manner and completed to our satisfaction.  They sent out a quality team member for further follow-up which went beyond our expectations.  We have since contracted Lindus for another project.  Great team; great people."
