My grandfather was born in the early 1900s. He had a sixth-grade education and began working soon after. Like most immigrants to Hawaii, he started in the sugar cane fields. He was a determined, self-made man who saved up every cent and eventually opened Henry’s Auto Repair in the 1940s.

Having worked for my grandpa from the age of 7 during summers and weekends reminded me of Mr. Miyagi’s famous advice to “wax on, wax off.” This also was my grandpa’s style of teaching. Times have changed, but the lessons I have learned and the wisdom gained from him are priceless. As majority owner of All Island Bath Remodeling LLC, I strive to keep these “traditional values” as the moral codes of our company — among them, honesty and treating the customer as family in order to ensure customer satisfaction.

One thing my team has, besides talent, is passion. We are so fortunate to have a team of sincere, hard-working members.


For this reason, I have given half of the company’s loyal and top team members part ownership. We are dedicated to making the service from our team the best that we can offer.

Here are some of the unique products tailored to fit the needs of our customers:

•Tub Cut (walk-through conversions). This includes taking your existing tub and cutting an opening to make it safer to walk in, changing your tub to a shower. This is the least expensive way to make it safer and more comfortable for seniors to get into the tub.

•Removing the tub and installing a shower pan. We usually recommend a high-polished simulated marble or granite finish, which is very low-maintenance. Or, if you prefer, we can do any other surround style.

•Complete remodeling for bathrooms and kitchens. This may include traditional methods or we can cut costs in many unique ways to fi t a tighter budget.

•Tub liner. We have the thickest tub liners available, which would save you money, especially if the wall surround is in good shape.

•Fiberglass repair. We have developed a method, which could save your old fiber glass showers and make it new again.

During free estimates and consolations, we can guide and provide you with the information to help make the right decisions by giving you options that no other company can provide. Our goal is to make you a part of our growing family of customers.
