Your roof is an important part of your home and needs to replaced on average every 20 years. On Kauai, we have extreme elements like constant wind and rain that can decrease its useful life. A new roof also enhances your home’s curb appeal, increases the value of your home, creates comfort and gives you peace of mind especially during the rainy season. In order to fully protect your home, you need a complete roofing system that has a waterproof barrier so no leaks occur and stands up nature’s elements. It must also have proper ventilation to keep it cooler especially in the summer months. Our solar attic fans are best for this application.
STI offers top of the line roofing products from CERTAINTEED® sourced through local suppliers to provide you with the best quality roof replacement or new construction. With our high standards of quality and customer services we’ve delivered since 2009 we make your roof replacement project easy and hassle free.
Signs Your Roof Needs to be Replaced
Don’t wait until it’s raining to replace your leaky roof. If you notice any of these signs of a worn-out roof, don’t wait – call STI today!
- Cracked shingles or tiles
- Curling shingles
- Dark streaks from algae
- Missing shingles or tiles
- Water Spots on your ceiling
- Plants growing out of your rain gutters!
Keep in mind that if your roof is over 20 years old, it might be time for a roof replacement even if you don’t see obvious signs of damage. The shingles that are made today are designed to last upwards of 30 years but some of the materials on your roof like the plywood, rain gutters and fascia boards were not.
Insurance Claims for Storm Roof Damage
Hawaii receives high wind activity on a regular basis, and many folks don’t realize that missing shingles and similar damage may be covered under their homeowner’s insurance. As a result, you may be eligible for a free roof replacement.
STI offers assistance in processing insurance claims. We understand the insurance process and we can help you to get your claim approved if its damaged. We will do a full property assessment for storm and severe weather-related damages that may be covered under your insurance policy. If a claim needs to be filed, we will walk you through your insurance company’s claims process and install the new roof as the claim has been paid out.
What about my solar system if I need to reroof?
Many homes on Kauai have solar PV or solar hot water systems. We know because we’ve installed many of them. If your home has an existing system, STI will remove it and re-install it for a minimal fee when you replace your roof with STI. We can also check your system to make sure it’s working at its maximum potential in the process.
