Contractors with experience
Once you decide to move forward with a bathroom remodeling project, the next and probably most important step is choosing a contractor.
“Whatever the scope of your project, your contractor should be licensed, experienced and able to provide references. Bathroom remodeling requires specialized knowledge of plumbing systems and fixtures,” says Tropical Plumbing and Bath president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association “Remodeler of the Year.”
“The contractor you hire should also be able to work within your budget and commit to a time frame for completion. We start every new project with a free in-home consultation with the client. Our designer brings along photos and media coverage of our completed projects. The homeowner has an opportunity to discuss household needs and lifestyle, including any mobility or safety issues.”
Custom-designed walk-in showers are Tropical Plumbing’s most popular installation, usually replacing old-fashioned stall showers or bathtubs. Accessory options include a variety of sprays, which may be overhead, rainshower or hand-held with intensities ranging from gentle to massage, seating, compartments for soaps and shampoos, grab bars, nonslip floors and tile and travertine finishes. Extra-wide, barrier-free designs can be specified for wheelchair accessibility.
As a specialist in age-friendly bathroom designs and renovation, Tropical Plumbing pioneered the introduction of walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii. They have installed these fixtures in senior living facilities for men and women at Kuakini Medical Center and in homes and apartments throughout Oahu. As walk-in bathtubs continue to gain in popularity, new styles, sizes and accessories have become available, including models that include shower sprays and provide hydrotherapy.
A $1,500 discount is currently offered on both walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs, as well as on complete bathroom renovation.
As a licensed contractor in Hawaii for more than two decades, Tropical Plumbing and Bath handles all phases of the project from design and installation to the plumbing and structural alterations required by the new fixtures.
The company has won two First Place Awards in Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s annual “Hawaii’s Best” awards program. Testimonials from clients acknowledge the company’s reliability and high-quality workmanship. (see inset)

“Tropical Plumbing and Bath remodeled my 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.”
