Howard’s Maplewood, MN Roofing Project

Whether it’s a work of art or a work in progress, there are few, if any, possessions one values more than their home.  One of the highest compliments we can receive is when a past customer reaches out to us to complete multiple projects on their home.  Earlier this year, that’s exactly what Howard in Maplewood, MN did.  The first time we’d worked with him, it was to install LeafGuard® Brand Gutters.  When he reached out to us earlier this year, it was to discuss the prospect of replacing his roof and adding more gutters.

Howard’s Twin Cities rambler is located in the Maplewood Heights neighborhood.  The charming sandy beige rambler was built in 1952.  One of the first things our representative did when he visited the home Howard shared with his son was climb up on the roof to inspect it.  With each step he took, the roof shifted, a clear indicator that the roof deck was in need of replacement.

After sharing the different types of roofing Lindus Construction could install, Howard selected GAF asphalt shingles.  GAF was founded in 1886 and is North America’s largest manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing.  One of the biggest reasons we feel confident offering this roofing material to Twin Cities homeowners is that GAF’s Weather Stopper® 3-Part Roof Protection System and GAF’s Lifetime Roofing Systems have earned the renowned Good Housekeeping Seal.

In terms of shingle styles and colors, GAF offers a plethora of choices.  After reviewing his options, Howard opted for GAF Timberline® Ultra HD® shingles.  Compared to other architectural shingles, Timberline® Ultra HD® shingles are a standout because they have numerous layers.  Their combined beauty and reliability are attractive features to potential home buyers.  Insurance companies appreciate that they carry a Class A fire rating from Underwriters Laboratory, which is the highest possible rating.  The roofing color selected was Hickory.  This chocolatey brown is the perfect complement to the home’s sandy beige exterior and white shutters.

If Your Roofer Isn’t Using These Installation Techniques, Your Shingles May Not Be Lasting as Long as They Could:

Lindus Construction Reviews From Maplewood, MN Homeowners

"The new window that was installed in the lower family room is beautiful.  Everything your team did with respect to the install of both windows and patio door has been exemplary.  I could not be happier with the results.  Your team members were respectful, professional, and fun to visit with.  The city inspector has already come and gone and signed off on both permits.  He found everything to be top-notch."

"Having heard the horror stories about hiring contractors, I have had only great experiences with Lindus.  Over the last 5 years, they have completed three projects for me (porch/deck renovation, bathroom upgrade, and LeafGuard® Gutters).  In all the projects, their handiwork truly transformed our home.  In all such cases, the work was done to my and my family’s satisfaction.  When I want any other project performed, I would have no hesitation in again hiring Lindus."

"Lindus is a professional construction company that pays attention to details from reception, to the point of sales, to project completion. They were consistently responsive to questions and feedback. All of Lindus' representatives were personable and responsive. Over the course of 20 years, we have had them replace two decks, install gutters, and replace custom windows. All projects have been completed to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend Lindus Construction."

"I have used Lindus several times and have never been disappointed. They are always on time, if not earlier than expected according to their schedule. Their work is of high quality, with great communication and follow-through. You, too, will not be disappointed. I can't say enough good things."
