Roofing Scandal in St. Louis

In March the Better Business Bureau identified an unethical roofing contractor who relocated to St. Louis from Memphis. This is the latest in a long line of roofing scandals in St. Louis. The last thing any homeowner needs is a missing contractor. So, how can you tell if a roofing contractor is good or if it’s a scam?

There several ways to identify whether a roofing contractor is worth trusting. Follow these five steps to ensure your roof and wallet stay safe and secure.

  • Ask for local referrals. A fly-by-night roofing contractor will not have the history of R&A Contracting when it comes to serving St. Louis. Local satisfied customers is an important part of R&A Contracting’s heritage.
  • Ask for contracting license and business numbers. A reputable contractor will have no issue with disclosing their license numbers and any professional registration information. Ask for website information, BBB ratings, and customer reviews. Transparency is a positive sign, but still not a guarantee.
  • Don’t use a door-to-door roofing company. If they’re knocking on your door, they’re not working. If they’re not working, there’s a reason. Go with a company you can trust.
  • Don’t use any roofing contractor who requires a down payment. No reputable contractor requires any payment before work is complete. If a roofing contractor is asking for a down payment to hold your appointment or order materials before the job is started, chances are it is a roofing scam.
  • Use R&A Contracting for your next roofing repair or roofing replacement. We carry decades of high quality service and customer satisfaction across St. Louis. Our roofing services are only as good as our reputation, which is why we won’t stop until your roof is fully restored.

Don’t wait for some scammer or scandal to break your trust. Call R&A Contracting today to schedule your complimentary on-site inspection today!

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.”
