Remodeling homes has been HK Construction’s expertise for more than 80 years. This fourth-generation company has designed and remodeled homes with a focus on quality and use of products that guarantee durability, all installed by a team of seasoned consultants in the building and design fields.

HK Construction’s high quality products are so fine, they may create beliefs that the company only accommodates high-end customers. Contrary to this misconception, this family firm mostly caters to midrange homes. The company obtains its materials from suppliers utilized by other businesses, making HK Construction competitive and affordable to the average Hawaii homeowner.

The company is known for its number of projects, most recently its “aging in place” project, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes as the process of turning a home safe for the elderly to “remain in their community all their entire lives.” HK Construction aspires to make homes more accessible to senior citizens. “We want to ensure the home is user-friendly when (homeowners enter) their golden years,” said Johnny Makiling, senior design consultant at HK Construction.

“Due to the high density of senior citizens in Hawaii, the general populace thinks aging in place is expensive,” said Makiling. The fully insured and bonded design-build firm’s team of building specialists and design experts work together to turn bathrooms elderly-friendly with curbless showers to sidestep accidents as well as wider doorways for wheelchairs. The company provides examinations for homeowners who are hesitant about requiring aging in place. “Plan ahead and examine the possibilities,” added Makiling.

The home can be readied for future residents if current residents do not require aging in place themselves. “Often, there are middle-aged adults who plan on their parents living with them,” stated Makiling. “It’s better to do it now when you can than waiting until you need it.”

HK Construction’s designers possess an average of 15 years experience in remodeling kitchens and bathrooms. The designers are members of the National Kitchen & Bath Association and the American Society of Interior Designers. No matter the size or complexity of your project, HK Construction is available to design and create your dream home.
