“You can pay me now, or you can pay me later.”

Fram oil filters made this statement years ago and it’s truer than ever when it comes to roof maintenance. Small, seemingly insignificant damage can either be properly fixed now with a small amount of cost or completely replaced later because of poor maintenance or repairs. When roof maintenance is neglected, expensive repairs are just around the corner.

Commercial roof maintenance programs can help business owners get the insight needed to care for your roof. A regular maintenance routine can uncover small leaks and tears that may go unnoticed and cause larger damage in a short period of time. Commercial roofs are both extensive and expensive to maintain. Roof panels, fasteners, flashing, decking, and weather stripping can all become costly repairs unless you keep a regular eye on your roof’s overall health.

A roof maintenance program helps optimize your roof’s life expectancy. It can help reduce repair costs, values the investment of your roof, protects your building’s structure strength, and helps occupants have peace of mind. Your building will last longer with a roof maintenance program. Your roof will reach its full potential with regular maintenance. Most importantly, you will save significant time and money with regular care of your roof.

Our R&A Contracting team created a FREE Commercial Roofing Checklist eBook to help you know what roofing details need to be monitored on a regular basis. This checklist can help you identify potential suspect areas on your roof and know the biggest threats to your roof’s life-cycle.

If your roof is in need of repair or replacement, your first step is to schedule a FREE, no obligation on-site inspection with our R&A Contracting team. Our goal is to educate and serve you with the best commercial roofing insight in St. Louis.

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.”
