Your SPF roofing system may need a facelift.

You may not realize it, but your SPF roofing system ages with time and weather. (Or, should we say it weathers with weather?) SPF roofing systems rely on regular maintenance, including re-coatings, to keep their fullest potential for protecting your roof and building for years to come.

There are six possible reasons why you should re-coat your new roof:

1. Add a new coating layer to renew the weathering surface of the SPF system.

A new coat will protect the crucial SPF insulation underneath the surface. UV rays can weaken a system coating over time, leaving it exposed to potential damage.

2. Allow for maintenance and repair

Hail, storm debris, and roof equipment can all pose significant threats to SPF roofs. A satellite dish knocked loose by high winds can tear and dent an SPF roof. If your roof recently experienced a big storm, you may need to repair and re-coat your roof.

3. Provide for additional durability and longevity

An additional re-coat is another layer of protection from storms and sunshine’s effect. The more you can protect your roof over the years, the less likely you’ll need to make major repairs or even replace it.

4. Improve the surface reflectivity and aesthetics

Have you ever noticed how shiny and sleek a new SPF roof looks? A simple re-coat can bring back that same shine and sparkle every time. Give your roof a little more appeal with a re-coat.

5. Obtain new or renewed warranty protection

Many SPF roofing systems have a virtually limitless life-cycle with regular maintenance. Translation: regular re-coatings will keep your SPF roofing warranty intact and working for you, not against you.

6. Change the color or aesthetics

Re-coatings allow you to mix and match your roof’s outside color to a new building color. A little dash of color can go a long way to keep your roof from sticking out and being an eye-sore, no matter how good of a roof it may be.

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.”
