R&A Contracting - commercial roofing St. Louis

With 2016 right around the corner, it’s budget time for a lot of businesses: where will you invest your time, attention, and resources towards building your business in 2016?

As business owners look to the new year, careful budgeting means measuring what you spend as well as what you don’t have to spend. Roof maintenance repairs can be costly with the average new commercial roof costing over $40,000. An average business owner can expect to spend over $127,500 just on roofing for the life of a commercial building. What’s even worse is that, according to one source, 36% of all roofing repairs were not budgeted for last year. (Source)

Thankfully, there’s good news: a roof maintenance program through R&A Contracting can extend your commercial roof’s life-cycle as much as 50 percent.Reducing half of your roof expenses for your commercial roof can amount to $63,750 in savings. If you invest that same amount into support staff, business growth, marketing, or even inventory, the possibilities are endless.

Investing in your business means using our Commercial Roof Maintenance Checklist to perform a regular roof maintenance review. We’ve created this resource to help you avoid major headaches tomorrow by making minor repairs today. This is our gift to you.

With nine out of 10 commercial roofs installed incorrectly, it’s likely your roof needs a once-over to find and fix necessary repairs. Even if you don’t use R&A Contracting, although we don’t understand why you wouldn’t (*wink, wink*), your business will notice a difference in expenditures through your roof maintenance program. Do yourself a favor and invest in your roof this next year.

If you haven’t performed any regular maintenance on your commercial roof, it’s best to start with a complimentary inspection from R&A Contracting. Click here to connect with a member of our team and watch us show you why we’re St. Louis’ leader in commercial roofing.

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.”
