Old Country Hand Craftsmanship
Roofing Solutions is the only roofer on the island of Oahu that installs all materials by hand. We do not use pneumatic nail guns, but instead we hand nail our roofs! This slows down our production time which enables us to place each and every nail on the roof in the right place.
When a shingle is nailed with a nail gun the nail can be over driven, under driven, or may be driven crooked. This can result in early failure and a leak. By hand nailing we guarantee our roofs to be water tight by taking our time to nail every nail flush to the shingle, straight and true, and placed right on the nail line. We also six nail every shingle for High Velocity Hurricane Zone protection.
Why Re-Roof with Roofing Solutions?
Have you ever seen the Miami-Dade County Approved emblem on a product and wondered what it meant? After Hurricane Andrew blew through Homestead, Florida hundreds of thousands of citizens were displaced and without a home. After this catastrophic and historically significant storm, Miami-Dade County updated their building codes and product installation guidelines and created the most stringent testing facility for construction materials in the USA. In an effort to prevent further catastrophic losses from future storms, the bar was raised and a whole new era in construction began.
Now most high quality products will bear the Miami-Dade County Approved seal which means their product has been rigorously tested to stand up against high winds, hail, fire, rain, salt, sun and any other element that could effect the longevity of a product and more importantly it’s ability to withstand a storm.
In Florida, the state has adopted a building code from the International Code Council called the High Velocity Hurriance Zone code. This code uses the highest level of testing and is meant to be adhered to by cities within 20 miles of the coast as these are typically the hardest hit areas during a hurricane. As the storms move along the coastline they still bear the wind speeds needed to cause devastation. Whereas, homes that are built further inland are more protected as the storm loses steam as it travels over land mass with no more warm water beneath it to fuel the negative pressure it needs to sustain high winds and wind gusts.
Unfortunately, Honolulu County, Oahu Hawaii’s Building Department has not adopted the HVHZ (High Velocity Hurricane Zone) so this code is not enforced on the island. However, one contractor adheres to the sound practices of the most stringent building codes in the nation…Roofing Solutions.
