Vanguard Exteriors’ story begins before the company was even born, with the pursuit of improvement…


Vanguard Exteriors, LLC was founded by Gabriel Moore in March of 2015, after a brief time of something that many of us experience at some point – trying to find his purpose in life.

In this self-development journey, he discovered that he achieved the most fulfillment from building people.

Being grateful for having more than 20 years experience in roofing, siding and seamless gutters, he decided that he could start a company of his own. Yet, near the end of Vanguard Exteriors’ first year, it seemed that something was not quite right.

After speaking with dozens of clients and potential clients and hearing their home improvement concerns, Gabriel realized that he didn’t want to simply own and run a construction company. He wanted to make a difference. He wanted to improve the client’s experience with their contractor and their home renovations. He wanted a business that could help improve his life, the life of his family, the lives of Vanguard employees, partnerships and customers. Helping them improve would then benefit the lives of all those around him in the community.

And then, quite unexpectedly, something happened…

On December 30th, 2019, the beginning of our infamous 2020, Gabriel’s three youngest boys were in a major car accident in Alden, Iowa involving a semi-truck while heading to Jayden’s dorm at the university of Iowa to play board games for the weekend. The accident put his son Jayden (20) in a coma for a month and tragically claimed the life of one of his identical twin boys, Noah (17). Though this was a horrific event, the strength that was revealed in their family was felt community wide.

It also helped to reinforce Gabriel’s mission of building people by shining a light on how fragile life can be and how “worth it” it is to be the best version of yourself while you’re here.

That’s when Vanguard Exteriors, LLC, as we know it, came to be.

Gabriel’s vision for Vanguard Exteriors is to create and introduce something better into the construction industry. How many people can say that they felt “heard” by a contractor? That their contractor shared their own personal vision for the potential of their home? That they had full confidence and trust in a contractor? If you’re one of those people, then you understand what we’re striving to do. If you, like so many other people, feel that contractors are unpredictable and unreliable, then allow Vanguard Exteriors, LLC to change your perspective! Many other contractors produce “one-size-fits-all” services. We are proud to offer personalized, custom solutions for your home.

We believe that our purpose here at Vanguard Exteriors, LLC is to help you improve your home through our exceptional customer service, partnerships and production capabilities, and thereby, improve your quality of life. When you have peace of mind about your home, you can focus on the more important things in life. Each customer we meet with, and each project we work on, allows us the opportunity to learn and grow as a company.

We don’t accept that our greatest accomplishments are behind us, but that they lie before us.
