BEMIDJI – ABC Seamless of Bemidji recently announced that John Hellquist of Bemidji was named the winner of the national ABC Seamless $20,000 House of Siding Contest.

Hellquist had been looking into ABC products prior to entering the contest. Four short months earlier, he had visited a project and spoken with the crew.

“I had done some research on ABC products before filling out the entry form and was interested in getting some information on the products,” said Hellquist. “The quality of the product impressed me and the timing of the winning couldn’t have come at a better time. I could not believe that I had won a nationwide contest.”

The project will begin in September and will consist of seamless steel siding, new metal soffit and fascia, seamless steel gutters and downspouts, and window and door trim.

ABC Seamless of Bemidji has been in business since 1993. Joe Butler was part owner for six years before becoming sole owner almost four years ago.
