We are Local

Ever wonder why you see so many out-of-state vehicles after a storm?  We call them Storm Chasers.  And they are not the kind you see in the movies.  They are the kind that blow into town after a storm, collect a lot of storm damage repair work, get the work done quickly and leave.  But what happens after they are gone and you have a question or something is not quite right with the repair?  What do you do then?  That is why it is so important to go with a reliable, local home improvement company you can trust.  

Northland Home Exteriors has been operating out of Forest Lake, Minnesota since 2004.  With a vision to provide a more personal, small town approach to home improvement, Doyle Land founded our company and brings with him over 30 years of experience in and knowledge of the home improvement industry.  Add to that our expert local installers and reputable project managers and you have a proven record of reliability and thousands of loyal customers.

Our customers let us know that we are easy to contact and are quick to answer any questions they may have.  They also like that we are educating ourselves and providing innovative new products, including many GREEN OPTIONS.

Green Options

By choosing to improve your home and not just simply build a new one, you have already made a GREEN decision.  We understand that there are many options to consider when remodeling your home, and Going Green seems to be at the top of many homeowners’ priorities.  

There are many options available to ensure an energy-efficient and environmentally responsible remodel.   These green options benefit you and your home for years to come and are a great investment now and for the future.  

  • Install Low-e, Multiple Pane Windows:  Energy efficient windows are one of the best ways to reduce energy costs.  We work with Alside, Sunrise, and Marvin…all excellent manufacturers of windows and doors in our area.  
  •  Install Quality Siding: Quality siding products such as Alside Prodigy and James Hardie prevent heat flow and can help save you money on utility bills.  Alside’s Charter Oak  is recognized as a green product for reducing energy consumption.
  •  Install new Attic Insulation:  The right kind of attic insulation can lower your heating and cooling costs each year.
  • Install Durable Exterior Doors: Don’t let out all the “bought air”.  Insulated and properly installed exterior doors will help keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  
And to help you make choices with all your options, we can now share an interactive model with you so that you can SEE YOUR HOME IN 3D.

See Your Home in 3D

Sometimes it’s hard to choose the “right” color, product and style for your home improvement project.  Wouldn’t you love to put up a big chunk of siding to see how it looked?  Or roof a small portion of your home to see if it went with your overall style?  Well, now you can…virtually!

Our GAF Interactive 3D Model allows you to “try out” different options on an actual virtual three-dimensional picture of your home. You can choose from a variety of colors, options, styles, and products,  This is a really cool feature that takes a lot of guesswork out of the home improvement process. 

Several of our amazing manufacturing partners also offer design tools. You can find those on our Design page.

What Our Customers Have to Say

I have used Northland Exteriors for the past 6yrs to completely change out all the windows in my 1928 home. I am very impressed with the level of personal attentiveness of the staff. The installers are so efficient and clean up after themselves. I think my home is cleaner AFTER they leave. The windows have made a big difference in the air conditioning and heating bills. Wish I would have done it sooner! I also used them for new gutters on the house and garage. So nice to not have to clean out gutters ever again. Highly recommend their services.

Susan N.

Im a single mother. With 2 part time jobs. Never thought i could afford windows until northland came out..They were on time, professional and so nice. I didn’t feel pressured at all. They have lots of financing options available. My energy bills went down since my windows have been replaced.

Northland did a great job, I am happy with the work all around.

We originaly had a quote from a large regional gutter fascia company, but we were concerned that the only fascia that they offered was a wood grain textured steel. After looking at a couple of houses that had the textured fascia, we decided we needed to find another company. We contacted Northland Home Exteriors and Kevin came out to meet with us. Since we had some issues in the past with a different general contractor company and the subs that they used, our biggest concern was who was going to do the work. Kevin said that one of their primary installers was working on a house just a few miles away and he suggested that we go to see his work. After getting a chance to meet Andrei, we were sold. Andrei took the time to explain the two different gutter guards that they offered and also showed us a few different things that he could do with the Window wraps. We contracted with Northland for gutters, gutter guards, soffits, fascia and window wraps and we could not be happier. Andrei is a perfectionist and he was able work around all of the issues that a close to 50-year-old house threw at him. Thank you for doing such a great job!

Tearah in the office was great to work with during our storm claim. She guided us through the entire process. Northland was able to restore/upgrade our home to like new condition! We couldn’t be happier with the look of our home and the quality of the products used.
