With the busy holiday season in full effect, the skilled professionals at Murakami Roofing LLC encourage island homeowners to put in the necessary time and research before upgrading their roof with a variety of functional and attractive applications.

Murakami Roofing LLC has assisted Hawaii’s homeowners for nearly 40 years as Clinton Murakami now heads the family business after learning the ropes under the tutelage of his father, Clifford. The company also is lauded by homeowners for its commitment to integrity and stellar customer service.

Homeowners are reminded that while the work performed by a reputable company with a proven track record of completing successful jobs may cost more than companies that tout lower prices, a quality project will end up saving money in the long run. For instance, Murakami Roofing LLC recently repaired a roof for a customer after it collapsed within the home and was plagued with leaks. The company that initially installed the roof is no longer in business, so any chance of the homeowner relying on the project’s warranty went out the window. In this case, going with the least expensive bid proved to be a costly error.

At the onset of the purchasing process, Murakami advises potential customers not to “over buy.” For example, if a particular resident does not think they will retire in a current dwelling, it would be impractical to purchase 50-year roofing shingles. The craftsman also advises those interested in a roofing upgrade to secure two or three estimates through companies verified by the Better Business Bureau or suggested via referrals from friends or family. By diligently doing their homework, customers can weed out the inexperienced or fly-by-night operations that produce shoddy results, and end up costing more in the long run.

“We try hard to provide excellent customer service, and it’s our service that sets us apart from the competitors,” said Murakami, who hopes to pass on the business to his son in the coming year and make it a third-generation company. “We all sell the same roofing products, but it comes down to customer service. I have a lot of customers that used to be my dad’s, and someday, they will be my son’s customers, too.”
