SNAPSHOT SUMMARY: Marina Palms,  a 2-story town home association in Hawaii Kai, was a turnkey roofing and PV project that provided each individual homeowner the option to install a PV system on the brand new CertainTeed Roofing System completed by CRW.

#1  Rooftop Analysis: Each building has several units and dividing up the roof space was quite a task for the association.  In collaborating with Greenpath Technologies, a comprehensive study of each building to determine the number of panels and ideal placement for maximum production was provided.  As a result, the association was able to proportionally allocate the number of panels for each unit.

#2 Maximum financial benefit to each owner

#3 Turnkey Roofing & PV Warranty Benefits: …provides the association with one point of accountability to cover both the roofing and PV installations.


Press Release as featured in Building Management Hawaii:

(Honolulu, HI) – Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii (CRW) completed two multi-family townhome roofing projects on Oahu, in Hawaii Kai and Ewa by Gentry communities.  Both projects involved the tear-off of the existing roofs and complete replacement using CertainTeed Landmark Pro Energy Star Asphalt Shingles.  Through a partnership with Greenpath Technologies, both projects have commenced with the installation of PV systems, which will make them complete turnkey energy solution projects under a master warranty program.

Located near Hawaii Kai’s marina, the Marina Palms project consisted of re-roofing eight low-rise buildings with 54 residences.  Originally constructed in 1966, the Marina Palms roofs were in need of a new roof that could withstand an exterior combination of sun and nearby ocean salt water elements, yet enhance the association’s a marina-front lifestyle.  “The Association selected the CertainTeed Landmark Pro asphalt shingles in the Energy Star Silver Birch color, which are laminated and have high solar reflectivity with an extended performance.  Including a complete tear-off, the Marina Palms roofing project was completed in late 2012.  Greenpath Technologies’ installation of PV panels for additional energy savings is currently underway.   This turnkey installation of the roof and PV through one general contractor allows the Association to be protected with one master warranty,” said CRW company president Guy Akasaki.
