Common Questions

We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about commercial roofing, residential roofing, and disaster restoration. If your question isn’t answered below, feel free to contact us.

Our experts will perform a complimentary evaluation of your roof and develop both repair and replace options. We do a full inspection of your roof to check quality, assess longevity, and make recommendations to further protect your roofing deck.

We inspect the roof and determine if there is enough damage to qualify for a claim. We meet with the owners and claims adjusters on-site to assess the damage and present the most efficient repair process. Our service team walks the owners through each step of the repair timeline to ensure no details are missed. All paperwork will be submitted to the insurance company until the claim is closed.

Our cool roofing solutions vary on their longevity, but all of our cool roofing solutions are guaranteed to last at least 10 years. There are sustainable roofing systems that can last over 40 years when re-coated every 10-15 years. We recommend the use of preventative maintenance programs to extend the life of your roof.

Each commercial structure is unique, but our commitment to you is finding the best solution for what your building needs, not just what will cost more. The price points on our cool roofing solutions are highly competitive and we work to educate each client on why a specific cool roofing solution is the best fit for your current commercial roof.

Our residential roofing team usually requires 2-3 days to fully replace a residential roof for an average-size house with one layer of roofing. This could take longer depending on the number of roofing layers, how steep the roof is, or if there is damage to the roofing deck.

No setup is required. All the materials will be delivered to the roof top.

Architectural shingles come with a limited lifetime warranty. Standard 3-tab shingles have a 30-year warranty.

R&A can perform emergency repairs that come from storm damage. We will make sure to mitigate the property quickly so further damage does not occur while we wait for the adjusters to arrive.

Depending on the nature and severity of the damage, R&A Contracting works with owners to first secure and assess the extent of the storm damage. Our next action is to work closely with your insurance provider to carefully reconstruct the lost property.

First, R&A Contracting highly recommends owners do not attempt to remove water without properly assessing any safety threats. Standing water can quickly cause unsafe situations.

Upon arrival, our R&A Disaster Restoration team inspects the damage for safety and securely removes the water. After the water is removed, we also inspect for mold and water damage to the foundation and existing walls.

We will then restore your home or business back to its original condition.

Yes. R&A Contracting can perform any type of interior and exterior repairs.

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.

Jim Lowry - Bissinger's Handcrafted Chocolatier

“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.”

Will from O'Fallon, MO
