Cedar Rapids is not a city of dreamers – it’s a community of doers.
Five Star Home Improvement, Cedar Rapids premier roofing company, is dedicated to bringing the best roofing materials to their community. Storms recently ripped through the Cedar Rapids Iowa area, damaging several homes. The homeowner was concerned about their roof, which had suffered hail damage, and went to the internet to find the best roofers in Swisher IA. Five Star Improvement came right up, and we sent a roof inspector out right away.
The inspector found significant hail and storm damage to their shingle roof, which happens in several ways. During a storm, high winds can lift shingles, which breaks up the seal created by interlocking shingles. Hail can punch holes in shingles, damaging the protective aggregate layer exposing the underlayers. This lets water into the roof, which then soaks into wooden roof decking and then down into the interior of the house, causing water damage in attics, interior walls, and even electrical systems.
Because the hail and storm damage was so severe on our Swisher IA roof, our professional roofers performed a full roof replacement. After consulting with the homeowner, we installed a high quality Owens Corning roof with a full 50 year warranty. Owens Corning is one of the most trusted roofing material manufacturers, and they offer some of the best warranties in the industry. The homeowner was very pleased with how their new roof looked, relieved that their home had superior protection, and was impressed with how our contractors worked efficiently.
This kind of exceptional service is how Five Star Home Improvement became Swisher IA’s premier roofers. We provide our local clients with the highest quality roofing materials with great warranties so that they can be sure that their homes, their most important investments, are fully protected for decades.

The roofing crew at Five Star Home Improvement, LLC recently performed a beautiful roof replacement for a nice couple in Cedar Rapids, IA.
Recent hail storms had blown through the area, causing damage to many local homes. We had been working in the area on several homes already so we decided to offer a storm damage roof inspection to the rest of the neighborhood. Many homes in the neighborhood were in fact affected, as we determined during the inspections process.
This particular homeowner was grateful we were able to locate the storm damage before the heavy rain came shortly afterward, as it would have created significantly larger problems, including water damage to the attic, drywall, and more. Additionally, the roof was 20 years old, which is likely why the storm took such a toll on this asphalt shingle roof.
We sat down with the homeowner and his wife and showed him all of his options. He decided to go with Owen’s Corning Duration Shingles, which are known for their great curb appeal and excellent performance.
We started on his house the following Friday, removing the existing roof and replacing it with the new shingles. Our crew worked diligently to ensure that there was no mess left behind during or after the project. The customer commented on how nice his roof looks and how quickly the crew worked. They were also impressed with our warranty on both labor and materials. Thank you for choosing Five Star for your roof replacement!
A Cedar Rapids family had a problem with their roof leaking. In a panic, they Googled the best roofing company in the Iowa area, and they got in touch with the roofing experts at Five Star Home Improvement. We’re dedicated to customer service, so we gave the homeowner the full five star treatment. We first examined the old roof, took detailed measurements, and worked up several options for new roofs. Our roofing experts went over the proposal with the family to find a solution that worked for them.
Our expert contractors first removed the old roof from the family home before installing a brand new asphalt roof. We only use the highest quality products, and we put a Owen Corning asphalt roof with a traditional finish on the house. The family thought it really looked beautiful, but their favorite part was the 50 year warranty on the roof.
This local Iowa family found us through the internet, but Five Star Home Improvement will happily give you a free estimate over the phone too. We have several offices in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Davenport, North Liberty, Robins, and elsewhere around the region. We’re a local family company ready to help your local family too.
We took a phone call recently from a very nice gentleman from Cedar Rapids. He said he needed our help on his roof. When we asked how he found us he said he’d searched on Google and found our website to be helpful. He said his problem was shingles that were curling up and that his roof looked stained on the back side of his house. We said that could definitely be of service and arranged a time to meet.
Our crew was at his home in 3 days to inspect the condition of the curling shingles and the roof stain. Our inspection determined that a the roof on his home looked to be 20+ years old and was showing significant deterioration. The only cure that made sense in this case was a full roof replacement and to add additional venting for him. After we went through some shingle options, the gentleman chose a fantastic looking shingle that he’d hope would really make the curb appeal of his house better.
We tore off the old roof and replaced with an Owens Corning asphalt roof. Once we were finished, the client and his wife both expressed to us how happy they were with the results. The wife exclaimed, “The new roof looks fantastic. Our house is the best looking on the block!”

A new customer in Cedar Rapids IA contacted our office because the roof of her home and garage needed replacing. Her neighbor had used our company before and insisted we would be the best company to take care of her. We examined the 28-year-old roof and observed the shingles had curled and deformed over the years. The recent heavy rain did not help, as the roof had begun to leak in multiple spots.
To replace the curling shingles and leaky roof, we quoted the customer with a replacement using Owens Corning™ Duration® shingles with a 50-year warranty. She was pleased with the quote, and we began replacing the roof. We made sure to carefully work on her home to allow as little disruption to her as possible. Taking care of our customers is our number one priority. This customer was elderly, so keeping her yard clean from debris and damage was at the top of our list. When the job was finished, our customer made sure to tell us that she loved the new look of her home, as well as how much care we put into preserving her yard.
