Woodville, WI Historic Farmhouse Renovation

Last spring, we received the below message from a Western Wisconsin homeowner.

“We’re interested in siding our large 100 year old farmhouse, a small back deck, rain gutters on part of the house, refacing the porch and replacing windows. Andy, HELP! Send a good teacher!”

New Siding, but Keeping the Woodville Historic Charm

The woman who had sent the email was named Roxi and she happened to be one of Andy Lindus’ favorite high school teachers. Upon visiting her home, our team agreed that the siding was in dire need of replacement. It had started chipping off and was no longer doing a sufficient job of offering protection.
lead paint found when removing old siding

When it was discovered that the home’s pre-existing siding contained lead paint, our team utilized additional measures to ensure the safety of both them and the environment. As can often be the case, damage was discovered during the siding tear-off process. Rotten wood was discovered and one of the home’s studs needed to be reinforced as a result.

In order to maintain the home’s historic charm, we suggested that the home’s exterior color remain white. We suggested a siding reveal of three inches, something that would have been customary 100 years ago. While LP® SmartSide® wouldn’t have been available to the original homeowners, we felt it was the material for protecting the home, moving forward. That’s because it offers better moisture protection and is more durable than cement board. It also has a longer lifespan than ordinary vinyl siding.

Increasing Energy Efficiency with Insulation and Window Installation

On this project, we found it really important to take a hard look at the home’s building envelope and offer solutions for increased energy efficiency. For starters, there were some walls within the home that contained minimal or no insulation. We utilized blow-in insulation in sidewalls and upgraded the attic insulation. New energy-efficient doors and SeasonGuard windows were installed to give the home a tighter seal, ultimately resulting in lower energy costs.

Installing New Gutters to Increase Home Protection

To ensure optimum rainwater management, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters were installed. Roxi opted for white gutters in order to blend in with the home’s new siding. The optical effect is similar to that of crown molding. What’s better yet is that they are guaranteed never to clog and if they do, it’s one of our team members with proper safety equipment and training addressing the situation. The finish on the paint is also guaranteed to never chip, crack or peel. A perk of these warranties is that they are transferable to the next owner of your home.

Creating Lasting Customer Satisfaction

Following the completion of the project, Roxi has the following to say, “These guys are AMAZING. Unbelievably conscientious. They were thoughtful and cared about the project.”

Lindus Construction Reviews From Woodville, WI Homeowners:

"My experience with the insurance company was a nightmare until two salesmen Lucas and Mike came to the rescue. They examined the problems the hail created and went to work securing my roof and LeafGuard®. My experience with Lindus Construction all the way from the initial meeting to the final cleanup and insurance payment was respectful, energizing, and productive. I appreciated the care they showed to my project and me. I would seek their help again. They were true professionals! Thank you for the amazing service."

"I can’t rave enough about the customer service! I expressed my curiosity of an estimate.  Dylan made the process very explainable and broke it down to me in levels of importance first and what we need to do in the future.  I am looking forward to doing my home improvement w/ a business that understands my needs and is willing to work with me.  Thanks Lindus Construction!"

"Several years ago we hired Lindus Construction to install steel siding, trim, and LeafGuard® Gutters to our older home. They did an excellent job and highly recommend them. The quality has withstood the test of time, and still looks great! Thank you!!"
