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.

Signs Your Roof Needs to be Replaced or Repaired

Posted on

Roof maintenance can be tricky business, with professional contractors needed to do the majority of repairs. Wether you need a full replacement or simply a bit of triage, Sela is here to help. Cross check these signs that your roof may need some TLC, and give us a call today!

Showing Signs of Age

If your roof is 20+ years old, odds are it’s going to fall into disrepair sooner rather than later. Past roofing options weren’t as durable or sustainable as more modern versions, which are built to last for much, much longer. If your roof is starting to show wear and tear, looks faded or uneven, it’s recommended to get a professional opinion. Ignoring the issue longterm can lead to greater damage to your home, at a greater cost of repair. Sela uses the most advanced materials, backed by a lifetime guarantee — it’s a win-win!

Cracking, Shifting, or Lifting Shingles

Telltale signs of a roof beginning its downward spiral are easy to spot. Are your shingles curling up or lifting at the edges? are they becoming uneven or appear to be close to slipping off in areas? Can you see visible cracks on the shingles’ surface? These are all clear signals of a problem. Sela can come out and assess the situation for you, and offer the best solutions for your home and budget.

Discoloration & Natural Growth

Seeing random streaks of discoloration on your roof can indicate algae growth — and while not necessarily a foundational issue, is certainly a cosmetic one that can typical be corrected without having to replace the roof. Moss and other natural growths can make their way into moisture-rich areas of an older roof, eventually causing damage to the surface of your shingles. This can be removed, but may grow back. Contact Sela to explain your situation and see how we can help — we’ve seen it all!

3 Tips for Creating the Perfect Patio

Posted on

Patio season is upon us! What sort of experience do you want to convey to family and friends? Between outdoor furniture, landscaping, easy maintenance and more, creating the perfect environment is no small task. Sela Roofing and Remodeling can help design the perfect patio, with decorative concrete, deck, and porch expansion options that bring your outdoor entertaining dreams to life. Contact us today for a free estimate, and check out some of our tips on perking up your patio below:

Build a Container Garden

Add color and zen harmony to your patio with a selection of beautiful, blooming potted plants. From hardy hibiscus to hanging baskets to easy to maintain ornamental grasses, palms, native plants and so much more, you can easily create a vibrant, lush environment with just a few (or many) strategically-placed pieces. Consider shaded vs. sunny spaces when choosing your plants, and if you’re unsure, ask your friendly neighborhood nursery staff for advice. Alternately, stores like Home Depot and Menard’s also have large plant selections, along with wide varieties of affordable and attractive pots to transplant into.

The Entertaining Experience

A good patio is designed for both relaxing and entertaining. Consider this when choosing your furniture and its placement. Depending on space, you may want to focus on table seating, lounge seating, or both. Either way, envision space for conversation, kicking back, and enjoying time with your favorite people. A round patio table with 4 seats and an umbrella stand is great for outdoor dining (or even working on your laptop on a nice day). Many online retailers like Wayfair or Amazon offer great deals on furniture sets as well, from outdoor sectional seating to matching collections to dining sets that fit your style and budget.

Easy Maintenance

When choosing furniture, accessories, plants, and decor for your patio, keep maintenance in mind. Buy furniture pieces that are both water resistant and sturdy enough to endure the test of time out in the elements. Can the pieces be wiped down or hosed off easily? Are they simple to store and disassemble during the winter months? Thoughtfully choosing quality pieces will ensure you can use your patio decor for years to come, as opposed to investing in cheaper items that often fall apart or start looking shabby after one season. Ask your local gardening pro on what plants are most resilient and easy to care for, and make patio maintenance a breeze.

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.”

Sela did a great job replacing our roof this summer. Thanks

From CitySearch:

Sela did a wonderful job installing my new roof with no problems and the workers were very nice to deal with. They worked diligently from sun up to sun down and when they were finished they picked up all the nails. I would recommend Sela to others and would use them again.

Reliable and honest. We contacted Sela about fixing our roof which had wind damage. When the Sela representative arrived, he provided me with honest, valuable information regarding my roof and how to contact my insurance company. The entire process was very professional… from choosing the type and color of roofing material to the actual installation. The Sela representatives answered all of my questions and got the job done and cleaned up everything before they left. We now have a beautiful new roof !

Thanks for the great feedback!
