What our clients think of our work

Over the years, we had been experiencing recurring leaks across our facility. Given the age of the existing roof, we knew we needed to look at replacing the entire roof for both structures on campus. We went through our standard bid process of procuring bids and interviewing contractors. We selected Commercial Roofing for our re-roofing project based on their track record of expertise, cost and proposed schedule of project execution. This project was ongoing at the height of the COVID19 pandemic and ensuring the health and safety of our residents was of highest priority. The team at Commercial Roofing was creative and flexible in the execution of the project to support our requests. All of the workers were respectful and professional and our onsite facilities team enjoyed working with their men for the duration of the project. Their responsiveness throughout the project, follow up and quality of work made it a pleasure to do business with them.

Congratulations Guy and Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing on your Silver Anniversary! I remember the early days when I would meet Guy on the rooftop for inspections and so proud on how successful the company has become. Commercial Roofing and Waterproofing has not only helped so many commercial owners with their roofing and waterproofing needs, but has pioneered efforts to help the community through The Salvation Army. Best wishes to the next 25 years!

As a board member at Haiku Gardens, I wanted to extend my thanks to Commercial Roofing for expediently repairing my roof. I am thrilled with their efficiency and ability to solve a problem that I have been having for a couple of years.

Kudos to the kind, professionals and talented crew at Commercial Roofing!

Commercial Roofing has done two of our main roofs here at the Mililani Town Association. They have completed their work on time and awe are very happy with the finished product. CRW was fantastic with their communications while the jobs were being completed. They were very professional and kept the areas safe and clean while the projects were being completed. I would recommend CRW to anyone who needs roof work done.

Kevin Murphy

Board Member, Mililani Town Association

Our wholehearted congratulations goes out to CRW on their 25 year celebration. It is a pleasure to have one of our key members of the industry reach this rare milestone which is certainly indicative of the quality of leadership at CRW and the professionalism of the entire staff. Guy Akasaki, as its leader, has been in leadership positions in our statewide association of roofing contractors and the state contractors license board, both positions that you do not achieve without gaining the respect of your peers and after exhibiting great leadership qualities. Our best for the continued success of CRW in the future as we look forward for more good things to come.
Tim Lyons, CAE

Executive Director, Roofing Contractors Association of Hawaii

Working with CRW as the general contractor for the roofing segment of the St. Regis Princeville Resort renovation project was seamless with their superior level of expertise in sustainable roofing solutions. In addition to the cool roof over the main lobby that addressed waterproofing concerns and reduced the heat gain in the building, the green roof over the Café minimized the rain runoff and upholds an aesthetically pleasing view from the main lobby.
Grant Henry

President & CEO, Division Seven Consulting Hawaii, Inc.

As the Ex-Chief Engineer of Unicold Corporation, I had the pleasure of working with CRW. CRW was able to replace 150,000sq.ft. of our old roof and install close to 5,000 solar panels – all covered under one warranty. The project was complicated and time consuming, however working with CRW made it easier to overcome the challenges and finish the project on time. The company stood behind their work and followed up with scheduled maintenance and any issues that were covered by the warranty.

Ahmad Tadjvar

Director of Building Operations, Kahala Nui, Unicold

I want to extend a Mahalo Nui Loa on behalf of the Board of Directors, the Association members and myself for a job well done on the roof replacement for Hale Kehau. The crew members were fabulous. Not only did they work hard each day but were very respectful of the residents during the length of the job. This was the first time working with your firm and while I have done several other large roofing jobs on the Big Island, this roof replacement was the best experience I have ever had. Your company completed 19 buildings not only within the budget set but also within two weeks of the initial projected completion date. Your responsiveness throughout the project, your follow-up and quality of work made it a pleasure to do business with you.

I have been a client of Commercial Roofing since 2006. I was unhappy with my previous roofer and therefore contacted Commercial Roofing. Whenever we call they have been very prompt in coming out to Market City Shopping Center to find the cause of the leaks and perform the repairs. They do exceptional work and are very reasonable. I highly recommend them with no reservations.
Marvin Fong

I’d like to thank you and your crew for the timely and professional intallation of roof drains recently completed. Your crew diligently executed their work and took special effort in getting the work completed correctly. Thank you again for all your help with with work and the ongoing efforts.

Arne LaPrade

Project Manager, ACL Group LLC

I just wanted to thank Commercial Roofing for the job you did on our roof. While I haven’t been on-island this winter, I did hear many positive things about your crew, the work they did, and how well they minimized the impacts on the residents of the building. In addition, I heard it rained last Saturday and the roof appeared to shed water and better yet we didn’t get any complaints regarding a leaking roof; a much improved situation from what we have been experiencing the past year
Brian Bue

Director, Maʻalea Banyans

What a fabulous milestone to celebrate 25 years of excellence. If I need a job done correctly by a reliable team of professionals, I know who to call. I’ve worked with CRW for over 23 years and never experienced an unresolved issue with any of the roof systems installed on the buildings I’ve managed. I’m proud to have CRW protecting our High Roofs at waterfront plaza.
Steven Sullivan

VP of Operations, Shidler Pacific Advisors, LLC

We interviewed a dozen companies and although CRW was not the least expensive, they were competitively priced and chosen for a variety of other factors, such as excellent safety record and extensive background in large projects. The Board has received only positive responses from our tenants and owners about the roofing and CRW.

Eric Brown

President, AOAO Kuahelani Apartments

The biggest challenge and concern for this project was the safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors. This building was in use the entire time of the re-roofing project, with heavy pedestrian traffic. Because of the excellent professionalism and the safety awareness of the staff and employees of CRW, we had no incidents with any of our patrons. It has been a pleasure to work with CRW and we would highly recommend them to anyone for future roofing projects.
Billy Casey Jr.

This is a letter of commendation to Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing and their workers who performed extraordinary work and assistance regarding the roofing of our church building. The operations team, foreman and the other roofing workers went above and beyond what was necessary to complete this roofing job. Your company has really outstanding and responsible workers. The members of our church and I are very grateful for their extra work and effort to insure the job got completed. We will definitely recommend your company to all of our friends and relatives.

Over the past 15 years, Punahou School has established an excellent working relationship with CRW. The scope of projects has varied across a multitude of roofing systems across campus. What distinguishes CRW is their consistency in understanding the scope of work and awareness to detail: in bidding the work, adhering to a presented schedule, quickly identifying and presenting solutions to unforeseen conflicts/problems that are in the Owner’s best interest, always conducting themselves in a professional/responsive manner, extreme attentiveness to safety especially as it relates to our school environment, and consistently providing a high quality finished project within or under budget.
