Hawaii’s famous tropical climate brings millions of visitors to enjoy the sun and sand, however, the heat, rain and humidity can take it’s toll on roofing and gutter systems. This makes copper and other roofing metals an excellent choice for builders and general contractors in the Hawaiian construction industry, and copper gutters the best choice for Hawaii homes.
Kobett Metals is one of the Pacific Coast’s largest manufacturers and distributors of copper roofing products, and we’ve been providing architectural metals to builders in Hawaii for years.

When you do business with us, you’re dealing directly with the source – not through a local middleman – so we can ship directly to you without the middleman prices.

A few common FAQ’s:
Q: Does Kobett ship to all islands or just Honolulu – Oahu?
A: All Islands. The main freight shipment goes to the Honolulu terminal and is then routed to whichever island port is designated – Maui, Kauai, Lanai, Molokai, and both Hilo & Kona on the Big Island.
Q: Is there a minimum or maximum order size that can be shipped to Hawaii?
A: No minimum, no maximum. Kobett can fill virtually any order of any size. Smaller orders can also be shipped via FedEx, when practical.
Q: Isn’t it cheaper and quicker just to buy locally in Hawaii?
A: Surprisingly, no. In Hawaii, there are only a few distributors that have any sizable product inventory on hand. Pricing is generally high, and what is not in stock must still be ordered and shipped. With Kobett, you’re dealing directly with the source, so we can fill custom orders easily and quickly because of our huge inventory and custom fabrication capabilities. Weekly shipments to Honolulu are then freighted from the Port of Oakland, which is just a short drive from our facilities.
Q: Is ordering a shipment directly from the mainland more expensive?
A: Not necessarily. Kobett is located within a short drive of a dedicated Hawaii freight carrier at the Port of Oakland, California. Container shipments are freighted directly from Oakland to the Hawaiian islands every week. Container dimensions and weight will determine cost, however, and we can always provide a free estimate upon request.
Q: Are there volume discounts for large orders?
A: Kobett will consider volume discounts depending on amounts being shipped as well as the current Comex index (Copper trading index).
Q: What if there’s a problem with the shipment, such as damage?
A: Contact Kobett Metals with documentation and pictures of damages. We will file a claim and/or replace the items. This is very rare, however, because our packing procedures are very thorough.
Q: How are the products packed?
A: When packaging, we bubble wrap, strap down, and fully nest all the products. No crates are stacked on top, or tilted or mishandled.
