A Full-Service Exterior Remodeling Company Serving Des Moines and All of Iowa

At Home Solutions of Iowa, we offer first-rate exterior remodeling services to homeowners throughout all of Iowa. When you partner with us, you can expect our skilled and experienced team to provide transparent communication, flawless workmanship, and unmatched customer service no matter the project, ensuring you can have peace of mind knowing your home is in good hands.

Founded by Joe Smith in 2003, HSI first planted roots as a one-man show at the Iowa State Fair. From that point forward, we have expanded our operations and have worked with more than 30,000 homeowners throughout the state. We are the leading home improvement contractor when it comes to gutter systems, roofing, insulation, rain barrels, windows, doors, decking, and siding. At HSI, we value community relationships and have garnered a reputation for continuous customer satisfaction time and time again.

Welcome to the HSI Family

Staying Committed to Our Customers

Our company was built on principles of quality and service that still guide us to this day. We set ourselves apart from other exterior remodeling companies and stand behind our products and workmanship with generous warranties.

And as a fully licensed and insured contractor with an established track record and a long list of happy customers, there is no doubt that HSI is the company you can trust with all of your exterior remodeling needs.

Joe Smith, our founder, has more than 20 years of experience in the home improvement industry, and all of our team members are trained and certified in the products we install. We take pride in all of the work that we do and stand behind it by offering lifetime labor warranties on top of all manufacturer warranties. Additionally, our scheduling department works hand in hand with each customer, providing clear communication so everyone knows what to expect from start to finish.

HSI has one of the highest referral rates in the industry, and chances are, we’ve worked on your neighbors’ homes. If you’re in need of a new gutter system, roofing, or any other exterior remodeling service, we’ve got you covered.

Helping Hockey Grow

In addition to donating to organizations that better the community, we are also excited to contribute to one of our favorite sports—hockey. One of the main ways we do this is by sponsoring the Iowa Wild Block Party.

This group hosts events for kids of Central Iowa and promotes hockey via their Iowa Wild Junior Crash Course program, which gives 50 kids (between the ages of 4 and 12) in the Des Moines Metro area the chance to participate in six hockey sessions that are designed to introduce the game at a beginner level while providing free equipment. And in partnership with Iowa Wild Hockey, LLC, we took part in the Iowa Wild Roof Give Away, where one lucky winner of a brand-new roof is announced at the team’s last home game of the season.

We also sponsor the Des Moines Buccaneers through their first-time attendance puck giveaway, and support the MidAmerican Energy RecPlex, which is a unique sports center that offers opportunities to Central Iowans of all ages and abilities. This indoor facility is accessible year-round and plays a major role in the growth of youth sports programs.

Our Strong Ties to the Community

Home Solutions of Iowa believes in the importance of giving back. In recent years, we have donated several VIP packages to be auctioned off for Couture for a Cause. These events feature a fashion show and brunch honoring children and families facing childhood cancer, as well as the nurses who support these families in Des Moines area hospitals.

In 2016, we sponsored the event “Roofs for Troops,” where we donated a roof to National Guard member Gary Waters. And in 2017, we partnered with the nonprofit group No Roof Left Behind, where we donated a new roof to breast cancer survivor Tricia Croushore in Adel, Iowa. We aren’t stopping there, though.

Additionally, we have donated to local charities, including Meals from The Heartland, LLS, Iowa Caregivers, Orchard Place Giving Tree, Waukee Area Christian Services – Food Pantry, and Build My Future, which promotes hands-on learning of skilled trades for high school youth.

We also sponsor Junior Achievement of Central Iowa – JA Finance Park, an impressive organization that promotes financial literacy in a laboratory style classroom, and inspires and prepares young people for success.

You don’t want to entrust your home remodeling project to just anyone. Instead, you should work with a local company that truly cares about your home community, and that’s Home Solutions of Iowa.
