Donnie & Jennifer’s Hudson, WI Roof & Gutter Project

before roof
This was the condition we found the roof in at our initial meeting.

As a homeowner, choosing the right material and color for your roof can be a real challenge. We’ve found that the homeowners with the highest satisfaction rate with their design choices, work directly with us to analyze the best option for their home. With Jennifer and Donnie’s home being located in Hudson, WI near the picturesque St. Croix River and surrounded by mature trees, it made sense to go with an option that took into consideration the natural backdrop already in place. The final selection for the roofing material was GAF Glenwood Lifetime Designer Shingles. GAF is the largest manufacturer of roofing materials in North America. The Glenwood Lifetime Designer Shingles are a fairly recent product line. The shingles are lauded as the most authentic wood-shake-looking shingle available in the marketplace. This is accomplished with the help of three layers. Not only does this make them more aesthetically pleasing, but also more durable than ordinary shingles. Weathered Wood, a combination of dark brown hues, is the color of shingle that was chosen. It perfectly complemented the home’s rustic burgundy siding.

Another concerning fact about the 18-year-old home is that it did not have a gutter system.

Here’s a close-up of the completed LeafGuard Brand Gutter installation.

While there are a variety of reasons that the absence of gutters can prove problematic, there was one that significantly stood out at this St. Croix Valley home. The wood had rotted around the home, especially on the fascia boards. Fascia provides the finished look to a home’s trim. It covers rafter ends and creates a surface along the edge of the roof. It protects the house from extreme weather by creating a barrier against rain. Fascia also curtails rodents from getting into your home’s walls by covering the openings between the wall and the roof. The absence of gutters can cause excess water to hit wooden fascia. This can cause it to start breaking down in a matter of hours. The process for replacement is both costly and time-consuming.

At Lindus Construction, we believe in empowering our installers to become some of the best in the industry. One way we do this is by having crews dedicated to each product we sell.

Once the Wisconsin based roofing team had completed the installation of the GAF Roofing System, our LeafGuard® Gutter installation team got to work. Terratone, a dark gray shade, was the color of gutter installed. The new gutters have a similar effect to that of crown molding. Wisconsin homeowners with LeafGuard® Brand Gutters experience peace of mind knowing that the gutters are guaranteed never to clog, the ScratchGuard™ finish on the exterior won’t chip, peel, or crack and the warranties transfer to the next homeowner.

Lindus Construction Reviews from Hudson, WI Homeowners

"We worked with Lindus to replace our old windows in our home. They came out and looked at what we currently had and discussed our options with us. We purchased six Marvin windows and we could not be happier with the quality of the windows and the install/finishing. It's a huge impact and we are so happy we chose to work with Lindus! Matt was always very responsive whenever I emailed or called him and kept us in the loop about when we should expect our windows. We are very happy customers."

"We recently had a hailstorm come through.  Fortunately, we purchased the best asphalt roof system back in 2016. Jake took the time to inspect our exterior including walking up on our roof. When he finished, he took additional time to review his findings. Fortunately because of the high end roof and underlayment material that we purchased, our roof survived and we do not need to replace it. Jake was extremely professional and very detailed and very friendly.  With staff like him, you will continue to have long established customers like us."

"Lindus Construction. You get what you pay for. We went cheap the first time around and ended up having to replace them within a few years with LeafGuard® through Lindus. Great product, amazing company."
