Since incorporating more than three decades ago, R.S. Toyama Roofing Service Inc. has been the go-to expert in the islands when it comes to quality craftsmanship and competitive pricing. Well-versed in working with shingles, slate, tile and tear offs, the company generally works on private residences, although it has been contracted to do jobs as large as Windward Mall in Kaneohe.

Currently, R.S. Toyama Roofing Service employs seven skilled workers, who range from apprentice to seasoned roofers. Business has been stable, according to longtime owner Raymond Toyama, and the company receives most of its business prospects through word-of-mouth and referrals.

Humbled by the company’s success, Toyama is no less fierce about his employees and the service he supplies to customers. He worked for his father-in-law for 10 years, finished college and started the business with a steely determination to provide top-quality roof installation to clients.


“It is important to have people with a deep understanding of how roofing should be done to work on your roof, so that your roof will last its expected life,” Toyama said.

The roofing company is dedicated to bringing customers quality products and superior craftsmanship with its manufacturer material warranty.

The warranty comes standard with many qualified jobs, but R.S. Toyama Roofing Service also guarantees its work with a workmanship warranty. The contractor’s workmanship warranty usually will get you seven years of durable roof life from licensed roofers. So, of course, the longer the warranty, the better the investment is for homeowners.

R.S. Toyama Roofing Service is located at 1321 Har St. in Honolulu. For more information, call 847-6265.
