The Calm After the Storm

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ImproveTips

Following Oahu’s big storms during the last couple of weeks, we all have discovered our homes’ weaknesses, the most frustrating of which is water intrusion. This normally comes from three places:

Roofing

Problems with roofing are the most frustrating of all. Get out the buckets and the tarps and call Tropical Wholesale. The company has been installing roofing in Hawaii for more than 30 years. Tropical Wholesale does all types of roofing, but specializes in Gerard Roofing. It is the only type of roof with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty from the manufacturer that covers materials and labor as well as carries a 50-year leak warranty if installed by an authorized installer.

Windows

When your windows let in water, you get out all the towels in your home and watch your walls drip. This becomes an uncomfortable and frustrating time. The answer to this frustration is to change those jalousies windows or cheap aluminum sliders to Lifetime Vinyl Windows. Tropical Wholesale installs Simonton Windows, the No. 1 rated windows by J.D. Power Train for the last three years.

They are No. 1 in customer satisfaction and the only window that has a lifetime factory warranty on frame, hardware and workmanship. While changing those old windows, Tropical Wholesale also will repair the damaged areas and weather-tight all the windows free of charge. Tropical Wholesale also gives a voluntary lifetime-workmanship warranty on all window installations.

Walls

Wall issues can be the worst. Just today, Tropical Wholesale has started a project in Hawaii Kai where we have to remove the whole mauka wall because of severe leakage. That leakage can cause mildew, fungus and damage to the inside drywall. In this home, the towel racks on the bathroom wall were pulling off the wall because of water intrusion. What Tropical Wholesale will do is remove the existing leaking wall, then dry out and kill all moisture and fungi in the wall. The wall will be replaced with new wolmanized lumber. The company will install a moisture barrier as well as cover the new wall and the rest of the home with lifetime waterproof vinyl siding. Tropical Wholesale will install Norandex vinyl siding, the absolute thickest vinyl siding ever made. This siding carries a lifetime factory warranty covering materials and labor. Tropical Wholesale also gives a voluntary lifetime workmanship warranty and a lifetime warranty against future leakage.

So after the storm is gone, be ready for the next storm by calling Tropical Wholesale. Whether you have leaks from roofing, windows or siding, Tropical Wholesale is the local expert that has been serving Hawaii for more than 35 years. Call Tropical Wholesale at 263-1252 or 292-2942.
