“To live Professionalism with a Personal Touch” – Guy Akasaki, President & CEO
Founded in 1993 by Guy Akasaki, Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii, Inc. (CRW) has grown from a three-man forensics specialty repair company to a full-service roofing and waterproofing contractor with 75 employees and operations in Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines. The company’s mission is “To dedicate ourselves as a unified team of professionals, utilizing our knowledge and experience to be on the forefront of roofing technology, exceeding client expectations.
Scope of Services:
CRW covers the full spectrum of the roofing and waterproofing industry, having installed nearly every kind of system, from the purely functional to assemblies that are highly visible and aesthetically pleasing that fit within “Sustainability Initiatives, regarding reduced landfill debris, reduction of energy consumption through solar reflective specialty coatings, and the generation of energy.” Since all roofs do not require new roofing assemblies, CRW is able to identify water intrusion problems and can recommend remedies that allow time for larger budget cost solutions. The company prides itself on tacking extremely difficult projects and provides continuous communication throughout each project.
Most recently, CRW has made a concerted effort towards reducing the impact upon the environment, which has resulted in utilizing more environmentally friendly initiatives and methods, including the use of GPS (global positioning system) technology and photovoltaic roofing assemblies.
Enlarging its presence and capacity in the photovoltaic arena beyond just contracting installations, CRW has developed strategic approaches to alternative financing options, including power purchase agreements which are beneficial to nonprofits, for-profits, owner user/investors, and investors that are specific to the ITC (Investment Tax Credit) renewable energy investment tax credits and subsidies for state and federal taxes. This strategy empowers various types of clients to integrate renewable energy initiatives with phenomenal benefits depending on their needs.
