Chimney & Fireplace Restoration & Repair by Sela

Posted on

As summer winds to a close, it’s important to think about home improvement and repair projects that can be completed before the snowy season starts. For many homes, the fireplace and chimney are a centerpiece to a living space; a central location where people gather, share, and relax. After all, what’s more cozy than curling up in front of a roaring fire when there’s a chill in the air? Before winter arrives, check your chimney and fireplace for signs of wear and tear. While some damage may be purely aesthetic, other types can create long-term performance issues. A poorly functioning chimney can create health problems, increase utility bills and cause loss of heat.

Sela’s team of experienced master masons specialize in chimney repair and restoration projects. For more than 25 years, Sela Roofing has been delivering quality chimney repair services to residents throughout the state of Minnesota on homes of any age. During your risk-free initial consultation, a trained, licensed and insured chimney repair professional will determine the exact scope of your project. From there, Sela Roofing will suggest various solutions in a variety of possible combinations. Whether your home requires a straightforward rebuild due to brick and mortar breakdown, tuck pointing, metal flashing and/or a concrete cap, Sela Roofing can provide a customized approach specifically designed for your home’s structure with consideration to your current material layout and color scheme to ensure a hassle-free chimney repair project.

Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you with your chimney restoration or repair project by calling (612) 823-8046 for a risk-free evaluation.

Sela Roofing Wins GAF President’s Club Award

Posted on

Sela Roofing & Remodeling, Inc., of St. Louis Park, Minnesota, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF offers: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Sela Roofing & Remodeling as one of the “elite of the elite” residential roofing contractors in the United States.

GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Elite® Contractors can compete for its residential President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a residential roofing contractor must meet specific criteria in at least one out of three different pathways:

  • Performance pathway – where contractors focus on giving their property owners the best possible service, quality, and protection
  • Reliability pathway – where the contractor has a long history of offering their customers the best quality and protection
  • Service pathway – where contractors consistently offer their customers the best protection available in the marketplace.

Sela Roofing & Remodeling has been a GAF Master Elite® Contractor since 2000. To become a Master Elite® Contractor—a status that less than 2% of roofing contractors nationwide are able to achieve—a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing (in states that require it), maintain insurance,have a proven reputation, and show commitment to ongoing professional training.

“We value our certified contractors for raising the industry standard year after year by installing the best roofing products and systems. Our President’s Club award recognizes only those contractors who have distinguished themselves by the highest standards of excellence, customer satisfaction, and dependability,” says Jim Slauson, GAF’s VP of Certified Program & Services.

“Most people can say it, but they can’t back it up.” That’s how Patrick Hall, operations manager at Sela Roofing & Remodeling, responds when asked what separates Sela from contractors who claim quality, service, value, and craftsmanship as their selling points. “Our craftsmanship and our installers achieve higher standards in the finished product. We have a history of 135,000 satisfied customers and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Our reputation is driven by reviews on the Internet, referrals, as well as the fact that we’re a member of organizations that carry very high credentials.”

The company’s size contributes to its success. “We’re the biggest exterior contractor in the Twin Cities in Minnesota,” states Hall. “Because we’re the biggest, we are very competitive in the market, offering high-quality products at a very competitive price.”

Sela Roofing & Remodeling carries some impressive credentials. “We’re super excited about receiving the President’s Club Award again from GAF,” says Hall. The company is also a preferred installer for James Hardie Fiber Cement Board, a preferred partner with Pella Windows, and certified by Velux and the Vinyl Siding Institute.

Even a company as large and successful as Sela Roofing & Remodeling still finds time to give back to the community. “We work with Habitat for Humanity, we participate in GAF’s Roofs for Troops program, and we contribute to many different types of charities and community activities,” adds Hall. The company has installed roofs for orphanages and shelters for abused women, works with Little League and softball organizations, and has been recognized as the Recycle Contractor of the Year for the last several years.

Going forward, the record of success will continue, concludes Hall. “We’re installing more and more metal roofing systems, as well as putting more additions on houses. Let the building keep going! We strive for 100% customer satisfaction. That’s always our goal.”

Checklist For Getting Your Home Ready For Spring

Posted on

Once the long winter is over, people begin thinking about the outdoor activities they will soon enjoy. You can get a head start on your plans by doing a thorough assessment of your property as soon as the worst of the winter is over.

snow

Here is a good checklist:

 

Roof and Gutter Damage

If you have had significant snowfall or icing during the winter, you should have your roof and gutters inspected for small problems that could lead to larger issues in the future. Heavy icing can damage your gutter system, rusting connectors and causing a hazard to anyone standing or walking below.

 

Outdoor Porches, Decks, and Patios

The outdoor structures on your home, such as porches, decks, and patios, may have experienced wear and tear from the moisture and weight of snow. These structures should be carefully inspected to ensure that the wood floors and railings are intact and secure. Problems, especially structural ones, should be repaired immediately so that you can enjoy your summer and spring safely.

 

Yard Debris

The winter snow and ice may have pulled down a number of branches from your trees and shrubs. In some cases, the damage will be complete, while in other cases, pruning may be all that’s needed to stabilize these plants. If broken limbs have caused a safety issue, you might  be able to restore the integrity of these plants on your own; but if the damage is significant, contact a tree and landscaping professional to ensure the repair is done right. Once this aspect is safely remedied, you will be able to remove the minor leaf and twig debris in readiness for spring lawn maintenance and gardening.

 

Garden Areas

If you are an avid gardener, you probably await the thaw with eager anticipation. As soon as most of the snow has melted, you can assess your garden and find areas for new plantings. Homeowners often find that garden beds and fencing need repairs or tidying before the planting can begin. Make a list of supplies, such as additional top soil, new fencing, landscape cloth, or other items that can help you get a head start on your gardening efforts.

 

Foundation Inspection

Homeowners should also take a stroll around the perimeter of the home to inspect the condition of the foundation. The freezing and thawing of the ground around foundation walls can widen small cracks that let in moisture. After inspecting the exterior, also check the interior walls to note any changes in the condition, and make note of any increase in moisture inside the home.

 

Outdoor Play Equipment

Homeowners should begin inspecting outdoor play areas and equipment immediately after the worse of the snowfall. Children are likely to start using these areas of the yard at the first sign of warm weather. To prevent accidents from damaged or hazardous equipment, check the chains or ropes on tree swings and play sets; inspect metal surfaces for rusting, breakage, and sharp edges; and check fasteners and connectors on all parts of the equipment. Also check the surface below swings, slides, and other components to make sure they are free of hazards. You may wish to resurface this area to ensure a “soft landing.”

 

Maintaining these areas of your property will allow you to begin enjoying outdoor activities as soon as warmer temperatures arrive. You will also ensure your family’s safety, which will give you peace of mind as you tend to other tasks.
