Meet the Owner of Home Town Restyling - Wayne W. Winn - picture

Hi, I’m Wayne Winn. Thanks for viewing our site. As founder and owner of Home Town Restyling, Inc. it’s extremely important that we meet and/or exceed your expectations on your upcoming project. We take pride in our ability to provide the best quality products and service in the greater Cedar Rapids and Iowa City region.

I can proudly say since 1986 we have continually dedicated time and resources to improving everything we do. Everything from the latest in product technology, enhancing our installations, providing customers with the quickest project completion times while keeping them up to date throughout their project, and of course, service after the installation if the need comes up. All of these things have been the foundation for becoming Cedar Rapid’s #1 choice for home improvement.

When you combine all of these things, along with a great group of longtime employees, its easy to see why the largest percentage of our business is with past customers and their referrals. Any company can talk about it… we’ve actually done it and continue to do it! Our customers are a true measure of our success… just ask one!

Home Town Restyling - 1986

When I started in 1986 my business plan was different than most. I had witnessed the “fly-by-night,” part-time truck and ladder sub-contractors that delivered work well below my standards or expectations. My concept was different. My expectations should be my customers’ expectations and if I’m not willing to settle for “sub par” then my customers shouldn’t have to either. My concept was and still is, customer first!

To do this, it meant I needed to be able to offer quality products installed by trained employee labor and provide after sale service. Plus, have an actual place of business where potential customers could come in and actually experience their home improvement project by viewing full–size displays, seeing real life examples of what their project could look like, and receiving the assistance of our knowledgeable design and home improvement specialists. A place to visit with a project manager or designer to ask questions and bounce ideas off of so you could get a real feel for what their project will entail.

Home Town Restyling - 1993

In 1992 we built a new facility here in Hiawatha to better deliver such an experience.  Since then, we’ve added on more square footage and remodeled several times over, continuing to expand and grow to accommodate our customers’ needs. Our Showroom is always being updated in order to ensure our customers always know what’s new and have access to the latest trends available in the home improvement industry.

We are not only known locally, Home Town Restyling, Inc. has been featured in Qualified Remodelers Top 500 companies in the country for over the past 15 years and we were featured as one of Remodeling magazine’s Top 50 Remodeler nationally. We have been awarded Contractor of the Year locally twice since 2005 and in 2012 were ranked the 2nd largest in the State of Iowa.

In 2012, we were also awarded the Super Service Award by Angie’s List – the countries #1 place to go for trustworthy word of mouth referrals. We continue to receive national press in several trade publications and we continue to work hard to earn that recognition.

Many thanks to my dedicated employees for their years of service and to all our customers for putting their trust in us. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I am always excited to talk to the people who have made my business possible… you, my valued customer!

Very Sincerely, Wayne W. Winn
