Kahala Pacific Floors has one main mission: to be Hawaii’s best flooring company.

Each product the company sells and each service it performs are in line with this simple goal. But in reality, it’s not that simple. Company president Shirley Pai Hilton leads a hardworking team of professionals who bring you the ultimate in high-quality products with its Kahala Floors brand, a line that Hilton dares to say is the best you can find in Hawaii.


And now, Hilton is proud to announce that she is partnering with local flooring industry veteran Allen T. Canter to form a new installation company, Pacific Flooring Contractors (PFC). Canter has more than 40 years of experience in the business and has an extremely long history in the local flooring industry. He began working for several large local flooring companies before starting his own business, which has been around for the past 20 years. Canter is licensed in all flooring coverings — wood, tile and carpet. His breadth of knowledge and extensive experience are a huge plus, according to Hilton.


“This is an installation professional that I can finally put my full technical confidence in. Allen is one of only two certified National Wood Flooring inspectors in Hawaii and we have that expertise in-house,” said Hilton. “He is also an honest, ethical business person, which is almost more important in selecting a partner.”

Hilton likes the fact that she can now offer her customers high-quality, professional installation services for all the different flooring surfaces she sells. Whether you are looking for unfinished wood flooring that is custom-sanded and coated in your home, a prefinished solid wood, an engineered wood, porcelain or ceramic tile, natural stone, luxury vinyl tile (LVT), laminate or carpeting, Pacific Flooring Contractors can install it all for you.


Additionally, one of the company’s other specialties is ADA-compliant shower conversions.

Showers, you say? Many baby boomers are finding their old bathtub or shower with its 26-inch tall step over is probably not going to serve them well in the next decade or two. PFC will tear out the old tub or dated shower, reconfigure the space — which usually includes a bench — build a totally new shower pan and cover it all in beautiful new tile. Add a hand-held shower and grab-bar to finish things off. The company’s showroom features a new full-size shower display.

“Let us give you a free in-home consultation and estimate. We are half the price of some of our competitors with 100 percent of the quality and service,” said Hilton.
