This Saturday, May 5, from noon to 4 p.m.This Saturday, the public will have a chance to learn about two of the

biggest revolutions in home improvement today — silicone roof coatings as well as powerful PhotoVoltaic roof shingles, which actually improve the curb appeal of your home, while dramatically lowering your electric bill.


Jim Wilkinson, representing GacoRoof, will explain why silicone coatings are the biggest trend in Hawaii roofing today and how to put them down yourself without problems. GacoRoof has proven itself in the heaviest ponding water conditions — even on those roofs that never dry at all. This is because silicone, which is not water-based, does not absorb moisture at all. It also does not chalk, or “sacrifice,” over time, so it’s the last roof you will ever need. GacoRoof comes with a 50-year limited material warranty.

Whether you want to install it yourself, or have a roofer do it, you will want to attend this one-day sale and seminar. A discount will be offered that day only for both product sales and installation. You must attend this Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. to qualify.

Next, Guy Tanioka of One Roof Energy will demonstrate the new Apollo Solar PV shingles by CertainTeed, which look beautiful in even the most exclusive neighborhoods. Some folks in Hawaii have resisted conventional PhotoVoltaic panels because they don’t want to detract from their home’s curb appeal. Now you don’t have to compromise. The Apollo PV shingles don’t use a conventional racking system — they integrate effortlessly into your roof with a sleek, low-profile look. This allows them to offer a 110-mph wind warranty. Apollo generates power from high-efficiency polycrystalline solar cells mounted in arrays that produce 12 watts per square foot — more than double the output of some other technologies. That means significantly smaller arrays are needed to generate the same amount of power, even in cloudy Oahu neighborhoods. Even better, they carry a 25-year warranty that guarantees their electrical production as well as the full CertainTeed roofing warranty against leaks. Bring all your questions to the One Day Sale on Saturday, May 5 from noon till 4 p.m. and qualify for the show special.
