Des Moines #1 Roofing Contractor


"Very rarely do I find a truly great business!  Hail damage is all over the Des Moines Metro.  Jesse will come out, check over your roof and deal with insurance directly.  If you have hail damage you can get a quality roof in weeks.  Call Jesse, go to the website, get a new roof this guy knows his stuff and it’s free.  He has personally put on 3 roofs for me just this month."

“I saw Walter's crew diligently working across the street from my house.  I was impressed at how hard they worked and how clean they kept the jobsite.  I knew I was in need of a new roof so I walked over and asked for a quote and turns out we had a hail storm in the area so they were able to get my roof and gutters completely covered through my homeowners insurance.  I have recommended Jesse and Walter Construction to all of my neighbors and colleagues.”

"I worked with Jesse.  He was awesome.  I wish every business I came in contact with had someone as good at their job as he is.  The roof looks great.  The crew did a fantastic job.  They were quick and left our yard spotless."

"If you're looking for exterior work then look no further!  As an insurance agent, Walter has taken care of countless clients, family, and friends.  This last storm has proven further how organized, efficient, and friendly they are!  As an independent agency, we do not have loyalty to the insurance companies so our clients are truly the number one.  They fight the insurance companies, when needed, to make the whole process a breeze.  I've never "endorsed" an exterior company before.  These guys are beyond worth it.  Thanks for all that you do!"

"It was such a pleasure working with Jesse! He was very professional, honest and fast! If you’re looking for the full package don’t hesitate to reach out and book your repair/installation now. You will not regret it!"

"Klay identified hail damage on my roof and immediately met with my insurance adjuster. Klay did an excellent job of communicating with me often and taking care of everything. The installation crew did an efficient and professional job. All areas were protected and cleanup left things as they were. Love the looks of my house with the new roof. Would highly recommend Walter construction."

"The team at Walter Construction is amazing! The whole experience was stress free, seamless and surprisingly fast. Everyone from the owners to the crew were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. If there was a question I received an answer, it didn't matter if it was on a weekend or after hours, Jesse was quick to reply and made sure to address any concern that I had."

"The team did such a great job replacing our roof. They were professional and proficient during their time there, and delivered a nice result. They were also very respectful of our outside furniture and took the necessary precautions to protect it from the old shingles during removal. The consult with Jesse at the beginning was also a great experience."

Walters made the process easy! They handled the negotiation with the insurance adjuster, gave me a link that let me upload a picture of my house and see it with different shingle colors, and got it scheduled quickly. Their crew was awesome! They showed up early, stayed late and finished the project in 2 days. After they finished, they cleaned up and you would have not known they were even there.

"Walters has personally done 4 roofs on my own homes and dozens of my clients and I only refer them why....
- They go above and beyond on every roof
- The crews are professional and courteous
- The quality of roof cannot be beat
- Locally owned and operated"

"Jesse was very helpful in getting us taken care of after the derecho. It was great to work with just one company for everything. He took care of it all including dealing with the insurance company. We got our entire roof and our entire siding covered by insurance thanks to his diligence. We are extremely pleased with Walter Construction and highly recommend them!"

Rob R.

"Jesse Rittenhouse and his crew did an excellent job on providing us with our new roof. Jesse's expertise guided us to a superior product, a crew that was very professional in their attention to detail , including the care in which they took to protect our landscaping. We highly recommend Jesse for your projects!"
