A new year means Cardinals baseball is less than six weeks away! Spring training is almost here, but we’re even more excited for spring weather. We still have a few months of winter ahead though. If you’re a business owner, you probably want to know how to keep your roof healthy and happy this year.

  1. Schedule a complimentary on-site inspection with R&A Contracting. Our staff can help you find a time that fits your schedule. We also encourage you to ask as many questions as you’d like. If you recently purchased a building, you may have a lot of questions about your building’s roof. We understand! That means you probably need to ask even more questions than normal. We’re not afraid of answering questions, so make sure you’re not afraid to ask any question you’d like about your roof.
  2. We recommend you put together a commercial roof maintenance program. This gives an action plan for keeping your roof looking and feeling it best for many years to come. A commercial roof maintenance program helps you know what to look for when it comes to fixing or replacing your roof.
  3. Set money aside for future roofing repairs in your business budget. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ you will need to pay for roof repairs. It’s better to have a plan in place now than wishing you had. Our R&A Contracting team can help you know what repairs are the most pressing. We can give you a detailed proposal for any needed repair so you know how much to budget for the future.

We strive for excellence in every facet of our business, including giving you the honest answer every time. We believe serving you starts with treating you how we’d like to be treated. Sometimes that means we advise customers not to make a costly replacement and do what’s necessary to safely extend the life of your roof. It keeps money in your pocket longer and we have peace of mind from doing business the right way.

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.”

“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.”
