Kapili Roofing & Painting: Helping homeowners before and after the storm

Although Hawaii's hurricane season is from June to November, severe weather can happen at any time. In past years, the team at Kapili Roofing & Painting has seen severe windstorms that have caused more damage than the threats they've seen during hurricane season and are always ready to help homeowners be proactive in preparing.

Brennan Leong, president at Kapili Roofing & Painting, recommends taking note of things around your property that might pose a risk to your home. This includes things like trees or neighboring homes. “We’ve seen situations where landslides, falling trees damage a home. We’ve seen entire roofs blow off,” Leong explains. “All of these types of things are stressful situations for a homeowner to go through.”

Leong’s biggest pieces of advice to homeowners ahead of hurricane season is to be proactive.

“When severe weather hits and homeowners are in crisis mode, they might rush to make decisions,” he says.

To prevent this, Leong recommends having your roof inspected and talking to a roofer. Getting the estimates and information you need beforehand helps ensure that if something were to happen that you have someone you can call who is familiar with the situation.
