Eco-Friendly Residential Roofing Solutions With Walter Roofing

Walter Roofing is proud to offer sustainable roof treatments to our customers when it comes time to replace or repair their roof. Sustainable roof restoration is a quick, easy and affordable alternative to a potentially complicated, expensive and life-disrupting roof replacement for asphalt roofs. Its natural oil can extend the life of an asphalt roof by five years at a time, starting when a roof is around 6-10 years old.

When you choose a sustainable roof treatment, you’re choosing an environmentally friendly and safe treatment for people, pets, and plants. It helps keep roofs intact and asphalt shingles out of landfills for as long as possible. The Walter Roofing team can help you assess if sustainable roofing is the right solution for you and your home.

An Efficient Alternative to a Full Roof Replacement

At Walter Roofing, our business practices are tailored around helping not only people, but the environment as well. That’s why we’re certified to provide a sustainable roofing option to our clients. Sustainable roofing offers a range of benefits for homeowners, including:

  • Long-lasting asphalt shingles
  • Increasing a roof’s lifespan
  • Stronger protection against leaks, damage, wood rot, and mold
  • Saved money on continuous roof replacements
  • Decreased waste in landfills

How Long Will My Sustainable Roof Last?

Most roofs last around 15 years, with roofs in less sunny climates tending to last slightly longer due to less UV exposure. Unfortunately, there’s just no way to truly guess how long a roof will last with so many factors that could affect it. However, ​if your asphalt roof is more than 8-10 years old in Iowa, we suggest contacting Walter Roofing for an assessment. 

An estimate from Walter Roofing will show how much life is left on your roof and whether it’s the right time to apply sustainable roofing treatment, adding five years of life to it right away. While older roofs may require a few repairs before we can treat them, we often apply the treatment to roofs around 15-20 years old, and have even been able to save some as old as 30 years old!
