Press Release:

Sela Roofing & Remodeling Receives GAF’s Prestigious 2015 President’s Club Award

St. Louis Park, MN – June 20, 2016

Sela Roofing & Remodeling, Inc., of St. Louis Park, Minnesota, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF has to offer: 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 demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of Installation Excellence, Consumer Protection, and Installer Training.

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 have achieved—a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing and adequate insurance, have a proven reputation and show commitment to ongoing professional training.

“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.”

Is It Time For A New Roof?

Posted on

When is it time to get a new roof?

When buying a new house, or getting a roof put on, you get a roofing material that is rated for a period of time. For years, the most common was a twenty- or twenty-five year asphalt shingle. Now, roofing materials are much more adventurous and better looking. You can look around your neighborhood and see some great-looking roofs on houses very similar to your own. You may still have ten years on your twenty-year shingles, but is that a good enough reason to put off getting a roof you really like? If you’ve done frequent roof repair, or have discovered that a different roof may save money on your power bill, or even if you’ve seen a roof that would make your house look great, you should consider getting a new roof.

Exterior Expansions

What options are there in roofs?

Asphalt roofs can usually have up to three layers, so you can get a new roof without having to do a tear off. Newer asphalt shingles have exciting new cuts and colors and are rated for a much longer period of time than common 3-tab. Laminated shingles have designs called architectural or presidential, and they can give a roof a much more three-dimensional look.

Metal roofs look much better than in past years when they were used more for industrial and commercial buildings. Now, they are a top-of-the-line residential product. Newer metal roofing panels are treated to absorb heat in the winter and reflect it in the summer and they’ve gotten much more durable.

Composite materials have also enjoyed a surge in the roofing market do to sustainable building practices and green living. Roofing tiles made from recycled tires and building materials are quite strong. They also offer color options you won’t find anywhere else.

Where is the best place to find a roof?

A roofing contractor like Sela will be your best source in finding the roof you want. We have the experience, product knowledge and contacts needed to get prices and make an informed decision. Do you really want to spend another ten years doing roof repair? Or do you want to have a spectacular-looking roof?


Adding Shade To Your Deck Or Patio

Posted on

A deck serves as a backyard entertainment center, an al fresco dining space and a second living room during sultry summer days. But direct sunlight can make your deck uncomfortably hot during the peak outdoor months. Adding shade cools the heat and turns your deck into a space where everyone will want to hang out. Options for adding shade range from expensive to thrifty, and from temporary to permanent. You can experiment with different arrangements until you find the one that’s right for you.

Portable Canopy

Sporting goods and outdoor stores sell pop-up canopies designed for use at tailgate parties, tag sales and camping trips. But such a canopy can also provide quick shade for your deck. Position yours over a table and chairs or lounger, or set it up over the kiddie pool. It’s easy to move to follow the sun. You’ll want to weight the legs to keep it from blowing over in the wind. Advantages: it’s inexpensive and portable. Disadvantages: you have to set it up every time you want to use it and take it down again every evening. Also, the legs can get in the way of walking freely around your deck.

 

Awnings

A more expensive but still versatile option for shade on your deck is an awning. Many companies make retractable awnings for decks. The awning mounts to your house and you can roll it out whenever you need shade. You can extend the awning part of the way for a little shade or all the way out for a deeply shaded retreat. These awnings are made of heavy-duty fabric designed to stand up to heat and sun, but they’re vulnerable to wind and storm damage, so you’ll need to keep them rolled up when not in use. To cover a large deck you’ll need a large awning. Advantages: Adjustable and out of the way when not in use. Disadvantages: Pricey and unstable in the wind.

 

Pergolas and Other Structures

For a more permanent option, build a roof over your deck. Cover it completely to block wind and sun, or use an open pattern for a stylish pergola that allows you to still enjoy the stars on a clear summer night. You can use redwood, metal, fiberglass or asphalt shingles for your roof. You’ll need to tie it into your house’s roofline and you should check with your city or county to determine if you need a construction permit. Advantages: permanent and versatile; create your own style. Disadvantages: expensive and time consuming to construct.

 

Green Shade

For a green option consider planting a tree to shade your deck. A deciduous tree will shade the deck in summer and leave it open to the sun in winter. You can even choose a variety that will provide fruit or nuts for your family. Or erect a trellis and train vines to climb it and shade your deck. You need to live in a temperate climate where vines can quickly grow high enough to provide shade. You can choose a flowering vine for more color. Advantages: Trees and vines are green. The vines option is inexpensive and easy to rip out if you decide you don’t like it. Disadvantages: Planting a tree large enough to provide shade can be expensive and you’ll have leaves to rake in the fall.

Is Stamped Concrete The Right Choice For You?

Posted on

If you are looking for a unique, durable flooring material stamped concrete may be right for you!  In the past, homeowners could only choose between hardwood floors, tile, or carpet.  Today, there are a host of products on the market to suit your needs.  Stamped concrete offers a variety of patterns and an unending list of possibilities.

 

What is stamped concrete?  Stamped concrete involves using patterned stamps that are applied to wet concrete to produce the design of your choice.  Some popular pattern choices are brick, flagstone, slate, and tile.  While the concrete is wet, Sela will apply the stamps in a set pattern over the area.  When the stamp is lifted from the surface, it has imprinted the concrete with the design.  Multiple stamps can be used to create any combination you can imagine!

concrete_slide_1[1]

Where can this product can be used?  The most common areas for stamped concrete involve outdoor areas such as driveways, patios, decks, and walkways.  However, the technique is being transferred to indoor areas as well.  Kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms are popular choices.  In some instances, homeowners are using stamped concrete throughout the home.  The product provides an easy to clean surface, does not stain, and does not harbor allergens.  If you are building or remodeling a home, consult with your contractor and manufacturer on approved installation guidelines.  Each manufacturer will have specific recommendations on suitable substrates that can be used with their product.  For example, concrete overlays can be easily applied to already present concrete slabs.  However, applying it to plywood surfaces may require specific deflection ratings.  A deflection rating measures the amount of “bounce” produced with live and dead loads on a floor system.  If the floor “moves” too much, it can produce cracks in the concrete overlay and create problems.

 

Once the stamping is complete, the area can be colored to any color scheme you choose.  The contractor will apply acid or water-based stain products to the floor.  Multiple colors can be applied in two or three stages to create depth within the stamp.  The tools required to color stamped concrete are relatively simple: sprayers, brushes, and the stain itself.  If you have never worked with concrete stamps and stains, it may be advisable to hire a trained professional.  However, if you are a true do-it-yourselfer, a little practice can help you create an amazing floor!  Consider stamping a walkway in the backyard or patio before proceeding on the home.  This will allow you to perfect the techniques required to produce a custom flooring pattern
