When Matthew Houar took over ownership of Tropical Wholesale Windows & Siding in 1981 his vision was to make the very best window and siding installation company in Hawaii.

Thirty-seven years later Tropical not only became the best in the business, but still is today. Following are a few reasons why Tropical is Hawaii’s No. 1 window and siding company.

Tropical is a full-service general contracting company specializing in windows, siding and baths but can even build a home if you want.

Tropical has the highest limits of liability insurance and workers’ compensation plus Tropical is bonded on every job.


Tropical is the oldest window and siding company in Hawaii with more than 20,000 customers.

Tropical designed the first vinyl window for Hawaii more than 30 years ago while manufacturing the very first vinyl windows ever made in Hawaii. Remember “vinyl is final.”

Tropical still services customers from more than 30 years ago. That’s really exceptional, because what other company can you think of that does that?

When asked how have they kept the business going all these years and stayed successful, Matthew and his son Michael answered, “It’s the local customers they work for. Most businesses don’t have the advantage of having the best natured customers in the world.”

Matthew said that’s why the company motto is “buy local,’ and 90 percent of all Tropical customers are local people and that makes a difference.


“Our customers are constantly recommending us to other friends and family. This accounts for more than 50 percent of our business at Tropical. This is the key because at Tropical we do the best job and back it up,” Mike said.

“The proof is in doing the best job and having great customer relations and service,” Matthew said.

Customers are convinced when they do the windows and siding or even a bath for their home, they are calling Tropical, the No. 1 company in the business.
