Why you need an experienced commercial roofer to install your SPF roof

17 Feb 2016 | Under Roofing, SPF Insulation | Posted by | 0 Comments

SPF installation is like driving: many experienced people are actually terrible at it.

Many commercial roof installations are as reliable as your ninety-something blue-haired Nana white-knuckling her barge of a Buick as it straddles both fast lanes. Our team has reviewed the work of other commercial roofing installations that look as bad as your Nana’s driving record. That complete misalignment of her front end will not just “buff out,” similar to a sloppy commercial roof “hopefully” keeping the rain off your inventory.

SPF installation is a dual-element liquid compound that’s sprayed into place. “How hard can that be?” you may ask, “Just spray and let it dry.” Without the proper mixture and even application, SPF roofing can be a horrible mess and ineffective at protecting your roof and building structure. Here are a few examples of SPF roofing solutions that weren’t properly installed:

In a word, yikes! Our R&A Contracting team carries years of exceptional service installing beautiful SPF roofing solutions on businesses across Missouri. Here are a few sneak peeks of our work:

If an inexperienced commercial roofing contractor says they’re great at SPF roofing, think of what their driving record might be… and then call R&A Contracting.

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.”
