RA Contracting commercial roof fall maintenance

October is the kickstart for fall in St. Louis. Cardinals baseball, pumpkin patches, and cooler weather help us transition into sweater season. Before you down a Pumpkin Spice Latte or your favorite hard cider before kickoff, there are three steps you need to take to protect your roof before the real weather hits this winter.

Step 1 | Perform a thorough review of your commercial roof.

How did your roof perform during the triple-digit scorching weather of August? Did a late summer storm leave debris strewn all over your rooftop? You won’t know the answer to those crucial questions until you give your roof a once-over this fall. Our R&A Contracting team put together a Commercial Roof Maintenance Checklist to help you know what to look for during your inspection.

Step 2 | Implement a regular roof maintenance program.

The value of a roof maintenance program is that it proactively addresses potential problem areas with your roof. You can pay a fraction of the cost now to make necessary repairs instead of paying a substantial amount more for a complete roof replacement. If you’d like to learn how to create a roof maintenance program, we’re happy to help you get started.

Step 3 | Schedule a complimentary on-site inspection with R&A Contracting.

Even if you’ve given your commercial roof a good review, it doesn’t hurt to have an expert’s perspective on what you may have missed. Our R&A Contracting team knows the most common problem areas plaguing roofs across the Lou. We can help you identify potential trouble spots and what steps you can take to reduce unnecessary costs.

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.”

Will from O'Fallon, MO
