A leader in total bathroom remodeling, Tropical Plumbing and Bath is a licensed contractor providing all services from design to installation, including plumbing and structural alterations required by new fixtures.

Tropical recently completed an extensive bathroom remodel in Waterfront Towers (shown here), one of several similar bath renovations for owners of apartments in the Kakaako condominium over the years.

“Most bathrooms in the approximately 20-year-old building are substantially the same,” said Charlie Beeck, president of Tropical Plumbing and Bath. “In our most recent remodel, we changed and upgraded virtually everything with the exception of the Roman arch entry to the walk-in shower, since it’s a structural element.


“The shower itself is unique with a Jacuzzi tub against the rear wall. We replaced the existing tub with one of higher quality. The sink, toilet, vanity, cabinets, lighting fixtures, shower sprays, faucets, and all hardware have been replaced and generally upgraded. Ceramic tile on the walls and floor has been replaced with travertine, and we installed granite on the counters.”

Tropical Plumbing and Bath offers a $1,500 discount on total bathroom remodeling, and is extending this discount to design and installation of walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs for a limited time. In home consultation with a bathroom remodeling specialist is free and available by appointment, whether the project is a complete renovation or installation of a walk-in shower or walk-in bathtub.

“Walk-in showers are our most popular single installation, generally replacing an old-fashioned stall shower or bathtub,” Beeck said. “Each walk-in shower is customized to the homeowner’s specifications and available with a variety of accessories, including handheld and rainshower-style sprays, compartments for soaps and shampoos, grab bars, and seats; there also are wheelchair-accessible models.”

Beeck points out that the variety of fixtures, accessories, cabinet styles and finishes are constantly expanding due to ongoing advances in technology and improvements in materials.


“When faced by so many choices, our designer’s advice can be essential in making the right decisions upfront,” Beeck said.

The winner of two “Hawaii’s Best” first-place accolades in Honolulu Star-Advertiser‘s annual people’s choice awards, Tropical Plumbing has designed and remodeled bathrooms in hundreds of houses and apartments throughout Oahu.

Beeck has been named a Building Industry Association of Hawaii Remodeler of the Year. Testimonials from clients acknowledge the company’s reliability and high quality workmanship.
