2021: A Year In Review
2021: A Year To Remember
Every year we like to take a look back at our accomplishments, new innovations, and the change in industry trends. While 2020 was a tough year for many including us, 2021 allowed us to bounce back stronger than ever. As a small local business, we have been so grateful to grow our customer base by having the opportunity to meet many new faces while getting to catch up with our favorite past customers, grow our services, and enjoy some quality time as a company. Let’s rewind and take a look back at 2021!
Local Community Contractor
Being an engaged and productive part of the communities we serve is one of the core tenets of our business. After the year of 2020 and not being able to get out in the community as we would’ve liked to, 2021 was the year for us to do as many community givebacks as we could.
Junior Achievement Finance Park Volunteer
On November 8th, our Marketing Department took the day to volunteer with the kids of Indian Hills Elementary School at Junior Achievement’s Finance Park. This impressive organization promotes financial literacy in a laboratory-style classroom, and inspires and prepares young people for success.
Iowa Wild Tailgate Party
On Saturday, October 25th, we spent Saturday sponsoring and taking part in kicking off Iowa Wild’s season. We are always trying to grow the sport of hockey throughout Central Iowa and we were so thankful to be able to put on a tailgate for hockey fans.
Wild on The Green Golf Event
As a sponsor for Iowa Wild, we are fortunate enough to help sponsor events to give back to the community. Wild on The Green is a golf event we have taken part in for the last few years. We were lucky in 2021 to be able to have two Wild on The Green events.
Iowa Wild Junior Crash Course
Growing the sport of hockey has something we have been pushing to the Central Iowa community for many years. Every year we sponsor the Iowa Wild Junior Crash Course which gives the youth of Central Iowa who may never have the opportunity to try out hockey get a chance to try on the gear and learn basic hockey skills.
Giving Tuesday: Giveback to Waukee Community Schools
As a local Waukee contractor, we believe in the importance of giving back to the community. On Giving Tuesday, we have donated to Waukee community school’s Let It Snow campaign. This allowed all students of Waukee elementary schools to have the essential winter gear.
Orchard Place Giving Tree
Every holiday season, we take part in Orchard’s Place Giving Tree. This holiday giveback allows us to help ease the stress of holidays on families who may be dealing with personal mental health issues. We adopted two kiddos to fulfill their gift wish list.
Every day we are committed to providing excellent customer service and quality workmanship. We are constantly working hard to get recognized for the great work our employees do every single day.
Named To Qualified Remodeler’s Top 500 List
We were named to the Top 500 Remodeler’s List for 2021 at a ranking of 152. We were ranked based on installed remodeling dollar volume, total years in business, industry association membership, industry certification, industry awards, and community service.
Earned 2021 Guildmaster Award For Exemplary Customer Service
We are proud to have earned the 2021 Guildmaster Award for Exemplary Customer Service and an extremely high customer recommendation rate. Each and every day we strive to push ourselves to provide the top customer service to allow peace of mind home improvement projects.

The community voted us best in these categories: Best Local Home Improvement Company, Best Local Roofing Company, Best Local Contractor, Best Local Customer Service, and runner-up for Best Local Customer Service.

Featured In Metal Roofing Magazine
Three friends, Andy Lindus, Joe Smith, and Josh Keeney were featured in Metal Roofing Magazine’s February/March 2021 issue. This feature told the story behind how Home Solutions of Iowa came to be what it is.
18th Year At The Iowa State Fair
After a year of not having the Iowa State Fair due to the pandemic, we were so thrilled to get back out to the fairgrounds and talk to fairgoers. The fair holds a close place in our hearts as it was the way our business started and the 11 days were filled with seeing fairgoers play bags, take squirrel selfies, and posing with our green shades.
TikTok Presence Going Strong
Like many other companies who started to hop on the TikTok trends, our marketing department has been going strong on showcasing company culture through short videos. From trying out viral trends, learning fun TikTok dances, and showcasing what goes on behind the scenes at HSI, our staff is having a lot of fun taking part in fun social media videos.
It is important to take time away from work and enjoy company with coworkers outside of the work setting. 2021 was filled with office potlucks, company get-togethers, company outings to various spots, and our annual Holiday Party.
2022, Here HSI Comes
2021 was a fun and rewarding year for us here at HSI. We were so thankful to be able to provide homeowners with solutions to their exterior home needs. As a small local business, we are forever grateful for the effort and hard work that each and every one of our employees put in daily. We can’t wait for another amazing year at HSI!
