The roof is one of the most, if not the most, important structural features of your home. It shelters you, your family and all your possessions from the sun, rain and wind, and gives you a sense of protection from the outdoor elements above.

 
That's why it's crucial you have a good quality roof that's been properly installed, and experienced professionals for any necessary repairs.
 
At Kapili Roofing, a locally owned and operated company founded in 2007 with more than 25 years of experience in the roofing industry, customers can find comfort in knowing their home is in good hands.
 
“We offer every type of roofing available,” notes Mike Leong. “We do free estimates, and our proposals are delivered quickly to homeowners, sometimes within 24 hours.”
 
Leong has been working in the construction industry since 1985, starting as a painter before becoming a journeyman, foreman and roofer. Throughout the years, he says he's learned to base his decisions on doing what's right all the time.
 
“Roofing is a necessity versus a luxury,” he says on why he chose the roof ing business. “You don't have to renovate your kitchen, but you have to fix your roof.”
 
Kapili Roofing provides residential, commercial and industrial roofing services, including installation, replacement, repairs, painting and waterproofing. They use only the best products and materials, and carry all major brands, including CertainTeed, GAF and Malarkey.
 
As for the hot trend in roofing, Leong lists energy efficient shingles and reflective coatings, which keep the roof cooler, and as a result, your home cooler too.
 
When it comes to taking care of your roof, Leong suggests that homeowners keep trees and shrubbery cut back, away from the roof. “When the trees grow above the roof and the wind blows, it sweeps the roof and damages the shingles,” he explains. “Make sure leaves and debris are not clogging up the gutters and valleys also.”
 
Accredited by the Better Business Bureau and rec-ognized as one of the top 10 roofers in Hawaii by a local trade magazine in 2012, Kapili Roofing takes pride in customer satisfaction and works by its motto of “building peace of mind, one roof at a time.”
 
The company employs 15 field workers and five office staff, and its office is located at 96-1217 Waihona St. in Pearl City. For more information, call 621-ROOF (7663).
