Siding, Window & Roofing Services in the Twin Cities Area
A Word from the Owner, Paul Trautmann
I wasn’t born into the remodeling industry, but the remodeling industry was born in me. Early in life, we all leave home with aspirations of what we want to do in life. Who we are is not yet determined – much less what we are destined to become. I imagined a life in law enforcement, so I left home and went to school believing my life was meant to be in service to others.
While working as a police officer for a brief few years, my life took a different path. I was introduced to the world of remodeling, and that is where I truly found my calling. Since 1993, I have been involved in the remodeling business, replacing windows, siding and roofing for now thousands of homeowners. My path truly was to live a life of service, just not what I had originally planned – but where I found my love and passion exists.
Honor and Character
It was my father who instilled in me values of honor and character. Do what you do, say what you say, and mean what you mean. Do more than what is expected, and life will never lead you wrong. He mentored me by his “old-world” craftsmanship and taught me most the “true” meaning of quality and excellence.
Over the years, those values and lessons taught to me served as the foundation that formed the guiding principal that permeates every aspect of our company, my belief system that is shared by all members of my team and the core values of our company to this day.
Our Guiding Principal
“NEVER COMPROMISE, NEVER CUT CORNERS”
Our Guiding Belief
We believe that it is truly an honor to be invited into your home, to tear it apart and to rebuild it better than it was before. We want to work with you as a partner – to build the project you dream of using your ideas and your desires, not pushing products on you that are not the best fit for you or your home.
Our Core Values: Listen, Listen, Listen
Ever invite someone into your home to present you with a product, and after spending hours with them, you think this is not what you wanted at all. Every consultation we want to work with you to find the best fit for you. That is why we offer windows from trusted wood manufactures like Marvin, Pella® and Andersen®, as well as maintenance-free options from the highest quality brands like Revere and Simonton®.
Simply stated: this is your home. With our craftsmen, we can bring your ideas along with ours together to create the exact look of which you were dreaming.
That is why at Timberland Exteriors™, we believe it’s not WHAT we do, but WHY we do it.
People are more important than profits. We want clients for life, not just a job. That means treating you with respect and realizing that when you invite us into your home, you are entrusting us with the safety and well-being of not only your hard-earned money and largest financial asset, but also your family. We will not jeopardize our relationships and your well-being for profits…PERIOD.
Live up to our commitments. I learned long ago that the world is not perfect, and although we try, we aren’t either. But, our commitment to you is that your job will be perfect before we leave. We photograph and document our jobs so that we can send you updates and ideas via email or text, and if there is anything you want adjusted or corrected, we will make sure it is done.
Product is what we leave behind. It has to be perfect. At the end of the day, the only thing that people have to judge us by is our work and our actions. Therefore, we are absolutely determined to leave behind a product that is flawless and a client that is ecstatic!
This is what drives us, what compels us and what led us to create a truly unique and amazing experience for our valued clients.
In 2013, Timberland Exterior branched out our regional office in the Twin Cities to expand into Northwest Minnesota at Detroit Lakes. Headed by Marty Waller, Timberland Exteriors NW Division is equally committed to the same strict standards of quality and commitment that we have become known for. With our full line of products available in both locations, we are able to service those Twin Cities residents who have vacation homes up north, as well as the current residents of the area.
In 2003, Timberland Exteriors was first established, and we are still just as unwilling to compromise on our quality or our construction methods as we were on Day One. Which is a good thing, because if you’re like most people, when you remodel your home, you want it done right – the first time! You want it to last for years and you don’t want it to be mediocre – you want it to be stunning.
We want to be the company you refer to your friends and family!
It is not a sales pitch; it is our promise!
