Trust in these expert roofers to maintain or re-roof your home, as well as ensure it is solar-ready

When it comes to servicing the roofing needs of Hawaii homeowners, R.S. Toyama Roofing Service Inc. has it covered.

The company has been in business for more than 30 years and has gained an enviable reputation for providing quality crafts-manship at competitive prices. In fact, owner Raymond Toyama still does every free estimate himself, no matter where on Oahu the home may be.

R.S. Toyama’s work encompasses residences, carports, lanai, sheds, extensions and, in some cases, commercial roofing.

If you live in an area with an association, Toyama advised getting all your permits in order before beginning your project, as most associations will have a listing of color choices, materials, etc. that must be followed.


“We can gladly bring out samples to make your selection,” Toyama said.

With a crew of six highly skilled, hardworking young roofers, R.S. Toyama offers a seven-year workmanship warranty — the maximum allowed by Hawaii state law — on all its projects, in addition to the manufacturer’s material warranty, which usually lasts 20-30 years.

“We want (our customers) to feel they can trust us to do the job required to the best of our abilities, and to do that job with the least amount of interruption of their normal lives,” said Toyama, who founded his company in 1979 after honing his skills in the roofing trade for 10 years under his father-in-law, Nobu Kageura.


With years of experience in the roofing trade, Toyama knows roofing can be a noisy and dusty process, so the company tries to keep clients informed not just for their benefit, but for their neighbors’ peace-of-mind as well.

Over the last several months, the company has witnessed a trend in homeowners opting to install PV (Photovoltaic-Solar Energy) systems on their roofs. These systems will last for 25 to 30 years, so be sure your roofing is in good condition before installing PV, as it will cost extra money and time to take down a solar system once you have it mounted.


Also, if you do decide to install a PV system and you need to re-roof your home, it can get costly. To save time and money, Toyama suggested re-roofing the portion that the PV system will be place on first. Then, if the condition of your roof permits, you can re-roof the rest of the residence at a later date.

“No job is too small or large,” Toyama said.

During this holiday season, R.S. Toyama would like to thank all of its current and past clients, some of whom have given the company much-appreciated repeat business over the years.

“Thank you for your support throughout the years,” Toyama said. “We wish our clients and their families a safe and wonderful holiday season!”
