Commercial roofing isn’t sexy, but it will save money for your business!

Commercial roofing isn’t exactly dinner table conversation, and we know that.

Talking about your office building’s roof may not excite you, but we think it’s pretty exciting. What gets our team pumped up is seeing businesses investing in their roofs to protect their offices and warehouse spaces. Businesses can expect to spend thousands of dollars a year in roof maintenance. When companies budget for those costs, it makes our jobs easier and happier and saves you thousands more in easily preventable repairs or even replacements.

A reliable roof means one less distraction for your team. It means your team isn’t placing buckets over their desktops to keep the drips away from vital equipment. A leak-free roof means peace of mind when you’re trying to build your business. And that’s what gets us excited.

So, what about those companies who don’t invest in their roof? Unfortunately, it means thousands of dollars wasted replacing or repairing roofing material well before its time. We pride ourselves on preserving your roof’s life-cycle as much as we safely and effectively can. Without a regular roof maintenance program, you expose your company to unnecessary repair or replacement costs.

Having a roof maintenance program and budgeting for any future repairs starts with awareness. The saying is true, “People don’t know what they don’t know.” This is why we love talking about roofing. It’s not just a job for us; it’s our way of helping businesses stay on track and making a profit. When your roof is secure, you can focus on what’s ahead of you, not on what’s failing above you.

If you’re a business owner with a failing roof, you need to connect with one of our R&A Contracting team members. We are St. Louis’ leader in commercial roofing and SPF roofing installations with a track record of excellence and premium customer care. We’d love to hear from you and share how valuable your office building’s roof is to the success of your business staff.

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.”
