Cannon Falls was recently struck with a hail storm. Contact Schmidt Homes Remodeling to assist you with re-roofing, siding, windows, decks, painting, soffits, fasica, and gutter replacement. We were able to help 500 of the 5600 structures that needed to be fixed after the storm went through Northfield in 2006.
