R&A Contracting - commercial roof Santa

The holidays are upon us and that means putting up the tree, stringing the lights on a rickety ladder, and waiting for Christmas snow to fall. It also means the Big Guy is on his way. You know who we’re talking about, the Big Guy. Red coat, white beard, sleigh with reindeer, the two-list-checking Big Guy: Santa. He’s on his way and chances are he’s stopping by your warehouse to spread some holiday cheer for a great business year.

What Santa doesn’t know is how dilapidated your roof is as it stretches over your warehouse or office. An adult male reindeer weighs between 350 and 400 lb. Multiple by eight, add a massive sleigh and a cookie-craving Santa, and you basically have a Nissan Titan making a hockey stop on a highly questionable roof.

Buckets of rainwater may put you on the Naughty List as Santa lands his deer-drawn sleigh through your roof and onto your work truck. So, before Mo-Bap Med Center has to triage and traction the busiest man on earth, here are five ways to move onto Santa’s Nice List for your commercial roof:

  1. Get your roof inspected before the winter weather hits. Connect with a member of our R&A Contracting team to schedule your free, no obligation roof inspection today.
  2. Schedule regular routine maintenance for your roof. The value of identifying and fixing minor repairs now protects you from significant repair or even replacement costs in the future. Download our commercial roof maintenance checklist here.
  3. Give your commercial roof a once-over after every serious storm. High winds can deposit storm debris onto your roof and leave standing water on vulnerable damage spots.
  4. Install an SPF roofing solution to protect your roof’s life-cycle and strengthen your roofing structure. SPF roofing can be installed over any roofing substrate, including metal, brick, and stone. Click here to learn more about SPF roofing here.
  5. Ask R&A Contracting how your business can benefit from the right type of commercial roofing.

With good planning and the right steps, your roof can be the best landing zone for Santa this holiday season. Get your roof back on the Nice List and call R&A Contracting 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.

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
