Stephanie & Richard’s Brooklyn Park, MN home was only 15 years old when they reached out to our company for an estimate on windows. Although the original wood windows were manufactured by a nationally recognized company, they were builder grade. In this situation, this equated to a window that was average in quality because it was pre-built and mass-produced. From day one, the windows had sacrificed energy efficiency because they were double pane rather than triple pane. In the winter months, they frosted up. The spring temperatures caused the frost to turn to water which lead to mold and mildew. Lack of bath fans also caused moisture damage to the windows. Wood windows require frequent resealing in order to maintain their integrity. The windows in this home hadn’t been resealed often enough and the aesthetics of the windows were evidence of this.
The team at Lindus Construction takes great pride in exemplary installation techniques that maximize the lifespan of the windows they install. Our window and door installers only work with those product lines, allowing them to encounter a wide variety of scenarios. They are well versed in the importance of correct foaming and shimming techniques. In order to ensure clean installation, the siding is cut back. Barricade tape is applied to prevent water intrusion and rotting. SeasonGuard windows are custom ordered for every project to ensure the best possible fit. Once the windows have been placed in the opening, foam is placed around the exterior of the window in order to prevent air infiltration and maximize insulation.
