One of our top pieces of advice for when a storm damages a home is to have a small list of trustworthy local contractors that are familiar working with insurance companies that can provide a free roof inspection. Although it had been over two decades since she’d first worked with Lindus Construction, the LeafGuard® Brand Gutters she’d initially purchased from us had continued to be a point of pride on her home. When hail struck, we were one of the first calls she made for assistance. After performing a visual inspection, we were able to see the effects of hail on Kimberly’s roof, gutters, soffit and fascia. Here’s an inside look at the products our craftsmen installed to restore her 1950’s era home.

Roofing: After taking the time to fully evaluate shingle styles and options, Kimberly opted to have our craftsmen install Timberline® UHD with Dual Shadow Line Lifetime Roofing Shingles by GAF, which have earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal of approval. Likely to increase the resale value of her home, she opted for hickory colored shingles. They are a rich combination of brown and black which provide an ultra-dimensional look due to their specialty color blends and intensified shadow effects, enhancing curb appeal. The hickory color also tied into her chimney, a prominent feature on her home. Timberline® UHD shingles have a reduced chance of shingle blow-off and are warranted to resist winds of up to 130 mph. To ward off algae growth, they are infused with StainGuard Plus™ Time-Release Technology. Even more impressive is that the shingles are accompanied with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers both labor and materials, making them the last shingles she should ever have to install on her roof.
Soffit & Fascia: Kimberly understood that her home had been under ventilated and that additional airflow through the soffit was a must. There had been plywood under her existing aluminum soffit and our craftsmen were able to double the airflow by removing the old plywood and installing TruVent® soffits. An added perk of this product is that it will protect pests from entering her attic. In addition, the soffit and fascia will ensure that Kimberly’s roof lasts as long as it should by keeping attic temperatures regulated. This, in turn, will lower her energy costs. The thick paint finish used on TruVent® soffit is guaranteed to never chip, delaminate, peel, or crack.
Gutters: Having enjoyed her home’s LeafGuard® Brand Gutters for over 20 years, Kimberly knew without a doubt that she wanted the patented system installed again to replace her hail damaged gutters. The proprietary, patented gutter system pulls rainwater around the underside of the of its hood into the gutter. Through liquid adhesion, LeafGuard® is able to deflect organic debris to ensure it never clogs. In the unlikely event LeafGuard® Brand Gutters ever do clog, it will be our team of craftsmen remedying the situation, rather than Kimberly.
After the project was concluded, Kimberly left us the following online review, “I could not be more pleased with their work, professionalism, and meticulous attention to detail on all aspects of the project. Even the flashing on the chimney looks 110% better than what had been previously done and is now caulked as well. I highly recommend Lindus and would definitely hire them in the future should a need arise! You will definitely not be disappointed!”
