Stormseal is the perfect alternative to tarps given the island’s tropical storms and strong winds, which gives Ohana Construction a competitive edge. 

Ohana Construction was started by James Murray and Matt Barberi in 2012. With the intention of becoming the premier, one-stop-shop for roofing, painting and home improvement in Hawaii, Ohana Construction flourished — they were even named the number one fastest-growing company by the Pacific Business News in 2018. After years of building trust with their community, Ohana Construction wanted to provide them with something better than inefficient tarps when it came to long-term, temporary roof protection. When the company learned about Stormseal and how it was being used on the U.S. mainland, they knew that getting this product to the island would be a gamechanger.  

“We saw a huge opportunity not just for us, but also for the residents because of what it can do in terms of helping after a hurricane or a bad tropical storm hits,” explained Barberi. As a company that works in insurance claims, Ohana Construction has felt firsthand the frustration of using tarps for temporary protection.  

“So here on the islands, we have continuous medium to high winds,” explained Barberi. “Normal tarps are very difficult to maintain. You put them on and the next day you have to put them back. Sometimes they last a week and sometimes they last three days.” 

The long-term performance of Stormseal is a game changer says Barberi. “When you’re talking about keeping the contents and the interior of people’s homes dry, you really want something that you can depend on. Obviously, the application of Stormseal with its one-year warranty really does set us apart from the rest of the contractors that don’t have the ability to install Stormseal.” 

Stormseal founder Matthew Lennox flew to Hawaii to provide the training for Ohana Construction’s team and certify them as installers. The company’s goal is to train as many of their installers as they can, so that if they experience a strong storm event, they can deploy teams to the entire island. “Because of how fast it goes on and the utility of it, we believe that if there was a natural disaster, the island itself now is better equipped with this product,” concluded Barberi.
