Metal roofs are one of the best roofs for Hawaii. Most metal roofs can be easily repaired and made to last the lifetime of the building.
If you want a new roof we recommend local manufacturer HPM who has serviced Hawaii for decades. We also use Kloeckner Metal (formerly MacSteel) for both standing seam metal roofs as well as standard corrugation.
up to 7 years max per Hawaii State Law
For Roof Coatings: between 12-50 years
The one thing you have to watch out for on older roofs is rust. Most rust can be stopped with NXT Metal Primer if its not too far gone. These can also be topcoated with a silicone, which come in a white, grey or tan color. If you desire more custom colors for design reasons, we use NXT Cool Coat which will reflect UV sun rays and keep the interior of the building cool, even with dark colors.
Standing seam metal requires very little maintenance and looks beautiful
Standing seam metal doesn’t have exposed fastened that can back out, or rust out
Their Kynar paint finishes are very durable
Standing seam roofs cost more than regular corrugation, which has exposed fasteners which can rust
Corrugated roofing, if not coated, will rust over time.

Q: What are the bestselling metal roofs?
Q: What can I do about exposed fasteners?
There are two common types of metal roof types: Standing seam, and standard corrugated metal, also known in Hawaii as “Tatung”.
Standing seam roofs are some of the longest lasting roofs out there. There are no exposed screw heads and fasteners that will back out and rust and they are low very maintenance.
The corrugated roof is a more economical option, but requires a bit of maintenance. There are exposed screws and fasteners that need to be recaulked every 10 years or so. Other than that, still a great option for a roof.
Finding leaks on a metal roof is a fairly straightforward process and the good thing about metal roofs is that they are easily repairable. LeakMaster will often replace damaged or missing panels, seal all seams and prime and waterproof the entire roof to ensure that the leak will stop and the roof will last for a few more decades. We won’t sell you a new roof, if all you need is a simple repair.
A very popular option for metal roof owners is to coat their roofs. LeakMaster offers a variety of coating options ranging from an economical protectant, to high tech silicone coating. There is also the option to coat your roof with over 36 different colors. The key benefit of these coatings is that they will protect the metal from the elements and reflect the sun’s heat away from your home or business.
