Dave and Patti had lived in their Minnetonka, Minnesota home for about five years when they came to the conclusion that the exterior needed a facelift. The 1970’s era home was built sans a front porch, something they wanted to integrate. The home’s green siding and brickwork had grown dated, as had the roofing that hung over the home’s front door.
The couple interviewed several contractors and ultimately chose Lindus Construction. They were pleased that we were able to offer an in-depth set of plans and clear renovation plan, including costs associated with each portion of the project.
“We’d heard their ads for years on WCCO and on television and they had always seemed to us like a family business that had been around a long time for a reason-that they valued customer service. We’ve heard countless customers gush about them over the years, both on the radio and from friends who’d used them,” says Dave.
In addition to updating their siding color, one of the biggest changes to the home’s exterior was the addition of a new Azek deck, complete with a roof extension, custom stone pillars, and LP® SmartSide® staggered shakes on the gable of the porch. With this option, Dave and Patti have a sheltered outdoor space to entertain family and friends. Choosing a maintenance-free decking option means they’ll never have to undergo the tedious chore of staining their deck.
We were able to explain to Dave and Patti the role windows play in creating an energy efficient home and they opted to make some updates. They had us remove an existing bow window and replace it with a SeasonGuard flat bay casement window. The twin casement window to the left of the porch was upgraded, as were the home’s upper bedroom windows.
Another maintenance-free option Dave and Patti selected was LeafGuard® Brand Gutters. They’ve received the Good Housekeeping Seal and are the only patented, one-piece gutter system guaranteed never to clog.
Reflecting on the project, Dave had this to say, “I can’t recommend the Lindus team highly enough. They talk the talk with their advertising and they definitely walk the walk when it comes to their dedication, craftsmanship, and service.”
