Walk-in showers earn rave reviews

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

Tropical Plumbing & Bath is Hawaii’s leading resource for sales and installation of high quality walk-in bathtubs and showers, which are fully warrantied and made in the U.S. As a general contractor and licensed plumber, Tropical installs walk-in bathtubs and showers in single-family homes and condominiums — both remodels and new construction — and also redesigns bathrooms to accommodate the new fixtures.

Its team of plumbing professionals and bathroom designers has the expertise to ensure that these major additions to your bathroom are operating properly, from the time of installation and into the future. “The installation of bathtubs and showers is just part of the service we provide,” said Tropical Plumbing & Bath president Charlie Beeck, named “Remodeler of the Year” by the Building Industry Association of Hawaii. “We also have the capability to redesign bathroom spaces with tile, travertine and marble options, or add a new custom bathroom to a home. A remodeled, upgraded bathroom is one of the best investments a homeowner can make.”

Walk-in showers are increasing in popularity. Whether building new or remodeling, homeowners have many options in designing and equipping a bathroom for greater convenience and safety of family members with limited mobility. For an “all walk-in” bathroom, a walk-in bathtub and shower could be installed together, given sufficient space.

In a home with two bathrooms, the walk-in bath and walk-in shower could be installed in separate rooms, or a new bathroom could be added. Tropical’s staff can also advise on the plumbing and drainage requirements for installation of the fixtures.

“There is really no limit to what can be designed and installed, once we assess the existing plumbing and provide a plan for the new installation,” Beeck said. “Some walk-in showers are simple fiberglass enclosures with fixtures and a bench. They can also be built and enclosed with tile … some include a low wall and utilize shower curtains, others are left completely open on one side with no barrier. Deluxe walk-in showers enclosed with glass, with windows open to a view, benches and multiple shower heads are specified today in high-end homes and apartments. Our experienced designers and plumbers work as a team to ensure that the installation is both aesthetically and operationally successful.”
