Shower Safety For Seniors

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

Tropical Plumbing and Bath is a “one stop shop” providing a complete range of bathroom remodeling services including design, selections, sales, installation and plumbing. Age-friendly designs are a specialty.

Company president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association of Hawaii “Remodeler of the Year,” advises that the best way to start a bathroom remodeling project is to take advantage of Tropical’s free in-home consultation.

“You can meet with one of our experienced remodelers right in your home who will assess the area and scope of work, discuss the family’s needs, including any special requirements, choose the new fixtures to be installed, provide a preliminary budget and design plan, and set a time frame for completion of the project,” Beeck said.

“Currently our most popular installations are walk-in showers, including barrier-free and wheelchair accessible models with a variety of accessories,” Beeck added. “We introduced walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii more than a decade ago and have installed these fixtures in many multi-generational homes on Oahu, as well as in senior living facilities at Kuakini Medical Center. They are available with a number of therapeutic accessories and are now routinely used by household members whose work or sports activity stresses muscles as well as by those with mobility issues.

“The bathroom has become the primary focus of aging-in-place residential remodeling. Bathrooms in single-family homes and condos are being transformed into comfortable, safe environments. Small spaces are being redesigned to accommodate fixtures that represent the latest technology.”

Over the past 15 years, Tropical Plumbing and Bath has remodeled hundreds of bathrooms in apartments and homes on Oahu and received testimonials from satisfied clients. It also received two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” First Place Awards.

One owner wrote: “Tropical Plumbing and Bath remodeled my condominium’s master bath and guest bath. The tub in the master bath was removed and now I have a beautiful walk-in shower. The guys did an excellent job in the shortest amount of time — on time, and thoroughly cleaned up the debris. I was thrilled with the end result and almost want to pat myself on the back for choosing Tropical Plumbing and Bath! Their obvious expertise and quality of work is simply outstanding.”

Another client, the owner of a rental with an old-fashioned bathroom remodeled by Tropical Plumbing and Bath, wrote: “From the start, your user-friendly approach made the entire renovation process relatively painless. I greatly appreciate your prompt responses, your professional guidance when decisions needed to be made, and your discounts to help make the project more affordable. In addition, I cannot overlook Sean Kelly and his top-notch crew. They were focused, respectful, skillful, neat and motivated to do their very best. It was a pleasure to work with you. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend you and your team to anyone seeking to do a renovation.”
