Be thankful for SPF this winter

Snow is already making its way over the Rockies and heading towards the Lou. Who knows if we will see a white Christmas this year, but what we are thankful for is SPF. Spray polyurethane foam, or SPF as it’s better known, helps keep our offices nice and toasty in the winter.

You may wonder, “How is it possible for spray foam to keep the winter chill at bay?”

Spray foam is liquid in form when it’s first applied. The dual compound is made of polyol fiber and isocyanate to give spray foam its strong but flexible composite. As the spray foam is applied, the two chemicals connect for an instant chemical reaction. The positive response is a rapid expansion process that is magical to watch.

The liquid compound allows spray foam to slip and slide into hard-to-reach energy voids. The rapid expansion allows the spray foam to ultimately seal off any cracks or crevices in your roofing structure or building walls. Everything from wall outlets to HVAC soffits are fair game for using spray foam to protect the energy envelope of your building.

This year, we’re thankful for spray foam. Our R&A Contracting team constantly hears how business owners across St. Louis are saving thousands of dollars every year on energy costs because they trusted SPF to insulate their offices throughout any season. This winter is projected to be colder than normal after an abnormally warm fall season. Don’t be left wishing your office had just a little more protection from the Midwest winter.

We have a variety of spray foam solutions from big to small to match your energy needs once and for all. Our R&A Contracting team offers a complimentary on-site inspection to see how spray foam can protect your building this winter. Send us a message to start a conversation and be thankful for SPF this winter!

I’d be an idiot if I did not take this opportunity to communicate to you how much we appreciate the way in which you conduct business and take care of our facility. In my experience you, and your team, are at the top of the list of all the roofing companies I’ve dealt with over the years. Thank you!

Eric and crew were really nice to have around. They were courteous, careful and caused little if any disruption. Their work looks good too! To be honest… a good experience with a product that I initially had misgivings about. I’m a convert because of Bubba, Sam and Eric. Thank you.

“I want to thank the crew at R&A for a job well done on our very leaky roof at the shop. It is certainly nice to have the drips and rivers gone from the shop when it is raining. I also wanted you to know how much we appreciated that the guys were able to stay out of our way and allowed us to do business as usual without any problems or interruptions. The roof looks great and the clean-up after the job made it so we couldn’t even tell you’d been here. Thanks for doing what you do so well!”

Jay Moore, President of Safe Way Tire and Auto Center

“My wife and I were on vacation when water pipes burst in our house. We got a hold of Craig and the R&A crew was able to start evacuating the water immediately. The best part was that they were able to start work before we even returned home. It was a very fast turnaround considering the extensive amount of water damage.”

Will from Dardenne Prairie, MO

“Craig and Mike came out in a timely fashion when we needed the work done. They did a reliable and quality job.”

Jerry from SLR Properties

“Craig helped us out tremendously with the insurance process. Timely and very professional.”

Lindell from Greater Missouri Builders (GMB)

“We purchased a house and there was some damage to the roof. Very impressed with the thoroughness of Mike’s inspection. Very comfortable with their explanation of what needed to be fixed. Most impressive was the way they protected our landscaping. Really liked the way they treated me as a valued customer, even though it was only a small project.”

Ross from Troy, MO

“I use R&A Contracting when my commercial roofs receive storm damage. They work on our behalf through every step of the insurance claim process. They perform all of the work and complete the insurance process, making our roofs better than they were before the storm.”

Director of Facilities for a large Property Management Company

“The team at R & A Contracting responded immediately when notified of our water disaster. They removed water-damaged materials and property quickly and restored our home even before the final settlement from our insurance company. They minimized how long our family had to live in a hotel and got us back to normal as fast as possible.”
