Kinzler Acquires Comfort Solutions Insulation & Gutter Divisions

Kinzler Construction Services announced its acquisition of the insulation and gutter divisions of Comfort Solutions. Comfort Solutions is an Eastern Iowa based company with locations in Marion and Des Moines. The company has a proven track record of success and profitability, with a mission to ensure Iowans are happy and comfortable in their homes. The acquisition was effective August 19.

This merger further strengthens our ability to serve builders and homeowners across the state of Iowa and beyond.

  • Combining Kinzler and Comfort Solutions insulation divisions means exponential increases in inventory, equipment, and manpower to get your job insulated right and on time.
  • Bringing the gutter division to Kinzler adds new services to our eastern Iowa branch, giving us the capability to install gutters, leaf guard protection, and gutter/downspout repairs for both residential and commercial projects.
  • Kinzler already also installs gypsum concrete, fireproofing and overhead doors (with our acquisition in January of WD Door and Doors by George.)
  • Kinzler also distributes a full line of construction materials, including drywall, steel framing, acoustical ceiling tile & EIFS. 

Comfort Solutions has developed a reputation built on quality and service, led by Matt Hoskins, Alex Hefflefinger and Mark Eichinger. Eichinger will continue his leadership as part of the Kinzler team. About 50 members of the Comfort Solutions Insulation and Gutter divisions – roughly 40 in Cedar Rapids and 10 in Des Moines – will be making the transition to Kinzler Construction Services and the change will be seamless for customers. Matt Hoskins and Alex Hefflefinger will continue operating Comfort Solutions, offering HVAC, Aerobarrier and Energy Audits.

“It just creates tremendous opportunity for us and for everyone in our insulation and gutter divisions,” Eichinger said. “It streamlines our operations and will hopefully increase efficiencies on every level, which will benefit our customers.”

“This is a very exciting opportunity for our company, particularly our eastern Iowa operation,” says Tanner Kinzler, President & CEO of Kinzler Construction Services. “The size and scope of our products and services will continue to grow, but the friendly people and industry-leading customer service you’ve come to expect will remain. We will work closely with our customers, partners and employees to make the integration process as smooth as possible.”

Kinzler Construction Services is a family and employee-owned construction subcontractor which has been operating in eastern Iowa for 14 years. Based in Ankeny, the 37 year-old company operates locations across the state in Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, and Ames – as well as Colorado, Texas and North Carolina.

Kinzler Helps Insulate Affordable Homes at the Iowa State Fair

Kinzler Construction Services is honored to join the awesome team of Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity volunteers and construction experts at the Iowa State Fair with a mission to build an entire house in less than 10 days!

On August 15, our employee-owners insulated the home with blown-in-blanket insulation, also known as BIBS. BIBS insulation is an environmentally sustainable kind of insulation that is cost-effective. If you’re looking for thermal efficiency equivalent to the lifetime of your home, BIBS is great for durable performance and sound control.

When it comes to new construction such as the house Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity is building, BIBS is the perfect type of insulation to use. It also works best when used for remodeling projects, attics, sidewalls, floors, metal framing, and sound control.

If you’re at the fair, make sure to stop by the building site next to the Thrill Zone for an up-close look at how Habitat for Humanity builds affordable homes for families in our community!
