Eureka Contracting & Roofing offers free inspections

Rick Hinkson, owner of Eureka Contracting & Roofing, says now is the time for business owners to have their buildings’ roofs inspected.

Hinkson said his company at 128 S. Virginia Ave. in Eureka provides free commercial and residential roof inspections. He also said mid-March is a good time to identify trouble spots before they become a problem.

“It is a good time because there can still be snow or ice on the roof, and that is a good time for us to look at it,” he said. “It is easier to identify potential problem areas. You should have your roof inspected at least once a year. That way you can catch things before they turn into a problem.”

Eureka Contracting offers commercial building owners a great way to protect their investment with silicon coating.

Hinkson said his company can apply the coating to flat roofs for a fraction of the cost of a full replacement, and customers receive a 10-year warranty. He also said coating is readily available, but roof materials can take six to eight months to be delivered.

“We can coat a flat roof and add 10 more years of life to that roof for about 40 percent of the cost of replacing the roof,” Hinkson said. “The 10 years is backed by the manufacturer for labor and material.”

Eureka Contracting, which started operating in 2012, makes the process easy for owners, Hinkson said.

“The biggest things is our personal touch,” he said. “We don’t just sell and install. We manage the project and coordinate everything. Basically, the customer just needs to pick out a color and we do the rest.”
