About the Owner
Klaus Larsen bought his first apartment building in Denmark at the age of 21, renovating every single one of the 13 apartments in it in less than three years. At the age of 32, he immigrated to the US with his tools and $300 in his pocket to live the American Dream. Little did he know those metric tools would do him little good in a country that only used inches and feet. By 1998 he was able to start his own home improvement business, becoming a roofing-only company in 2010 and Owens Corning’s very first Platinum Preferred Contractor in Connecticut. Platinum Preferred Contractors make up the top 2% of roofers in the US, and the process for their selection is meticulous, and this was quite an accomplishment for Klaus, though not surprising if you know him.
Klaus is well known for his historic work, using his ingenious creativity to update antique homes so their roofs perform properly while maintaining their architectural integrity. His attention to detail and Old World craftsmanship have earned him a reputation for helping to maintain New England’s rich history while integrating state-of-the-art roofing technology into it’s homes.
Today, Klaus and Judi Larsen run Klaus Larsen Roofing as a small, friendly company, where employees and customers alike become part of the Klaus Larsen family.
