A roofing and siding company is on a mission to help veterans
Grand Island’s veteran roofers are on a mission.
According to company founder John Larson, “Our mission is to provide the best quality roofing and siding services on Grand Island, Kearney and Hastings, while supporting veterans.”
Larson has a long history of service and patriotism. He spent 11 years in the Army Reserves, served in the Gulf War, and is a member of the American Legion, VFW, Elks, and Patriot Guard Riders.
His service in his country, combined with over 15 years of insurance experience and eight years of construction/storm restoration experience, brought in-depth knowledge when starting his business.
Larson said he started the company – formerly Veterans 4 Veterans Construction, Inc. – “…in hopes that he could provide financial assistance to veterans’ causes and charities from work that should already be done due to storm activity.”

“We’ve helped a lot of veterans in different ways,” Larson said. “We are working to get them into a better housing situation.”
Toiture Vétéran is a family business. While John is retired, his son Chris Larson now runs the business.
Chris Larson said he started doing bookkeeping for his father’s business several years ago.
“It kind of morphed into more, doing more with the company and helping more, and eventually,” he said, “I just took it over to relieve my dad.”
According to Veteran Roofing, “Your roof is mother nature’s first line of defense. Keeping it maintained or repaired after a storm is essential for your home.
As a veteran, John Larson said he understands how important it is for veterans to take care of each other.
He said that’s why the company donates to veterans’ causes and charities with a portion of its profits.
Some of the veteran causes Veteran Roofing donates to include:
• Veterans of foreign wars
• Chris Kyle Frog Foundation
• War horses for veterans
• Chapter 53 Horsemen of the American Legion
• Grand Island Veterans Cemetery Expansion
• Nance County Veterans Memorial expansion stalled
• Disabled American Veterans
• Various local fundraisers
“We take a portion of our profits and donate them to other veteran nonprofits that are doing good things in their specific areas of expertise,” Chris Larson said.
Toiture Vétéran is a roofing and siding company. It has been serving Grand Island and the entire Tri-City area for seven years.
The company specializes in roofing, siding and gutter work, including new installations, repair work and routine maintenance.
Chris Larson said exterior components are among the most important features of a home or business, protecting them from the elements, temperature fluctuations, moisture damage and pests.
“When we’re called to a job, we go out of our way to make sure these items look great and work properly,” he said.
Some of the main roofing, siding and gutter services offered by Veteran Roofing include:
• New roof installation
• Eave, trim, fascia and soffit repair
Larson said his father spent 15 years working as an adjuster before starting Veteran Roofing. This experience, he said, provides an understanding of how the insurance system works and can help veterans meet their repair needs.
“As soon as your home or business is damaged, call us to do an assessment,” Larson said. “We can give you an accurate description of the damage and provide it to the insurance company on your behalf. We’ll be honest so you get the best payout possible. In many cases of natural disasters, the majority of your labor and material costs can be covered. »
Larson said he wanted to grow the business and serve veterans throughout Nebraska and other states.
“We get a lot of inquiries and referrals from customers because of their mission to work with veterans on their home repair needs,” he said. “Veterans have a certain level of comfort working with other veterans, which puts us in touch with more veterans. We are a veteran-based company, rather than a purely roof-based company.
“Our motto ‘Support All to Support Veterans’ reminds people that we don’t just work for veterans.”
