As Island residents consider upgrading their homes in advance of the new year, the skilled team at Murakami Roofing LLC is poised to help local homeowners select the ideal roofing application to best protect their dwelling for generations to come.

While customers may be uncertain at first when choosing between different roofing materials on the market, the experts at Murakami Roofing LLC confidently recommend PABCO Roofing Products. PABCO makes shingles suited for sloped roofs of 2/12 (roughly 9.5 degrees) or more, including the entry-level laminate Premier shingle. This particular variety is the “heaviest” in its class at 260 pounds, a weight that translates into an ideal defense against Hawaii’s steady trade winds.

Most PABCO shingles feature a 3M Scotchgard Algae Prevention System, which offers a 20-year warranty against algae — an unsurpassed guarantee within the market. PABCO’s Radiance shingles feature solar reflective properties, and have proven popular in Hawaii’s tropical climate, as they keep homes cooler by reflecting heat back into the atmosphere. Radiance shingles also help homeowners save on energy costs, as less power is required to cool structures over time.

“Our products are used in reroofing projects and new construction,” said James McGuire, territory manager for PABCO Roofing Products. “Contractors such as Murakami Roofing like using PABCO because they can pass on the value to their customers, and are comfortable that they will receive the consistent quality that they are accustomed to time and again. My goal is to provide quality products and services so our clients and their customers can sleep comfortably at night not worrying about the roof after it is complete.”

Murakami explained that he recommends PABCO Roofing Products because “they provide quality and service that we can stand behind. We chose this brand because you work with a manufacturer that stands behind what it produces.”

In the rare case that a homeowner experiences issues with the PABCO roofing applications, Murakami noted that the customer service and follow-up process is refreshing when compared to competitors that are hard to track down. “You get a live body within three business days, and they’ll schedule everything to make the job right,” Murakami said.
