Start remodel with consultation
When Tropical Plumbing and Bath president Charlie Beeck meets with new clients for a free onsite bathroom remodeling consultation, he typically finds that even well furnished, modernized homes often include bathrooms that have not been updated for decades.
“Homeowners tend to put off bathroom remodeling because of concerns about the inconvenience it might cause,” Beeck says. “Unfortunately, they often wait until they have to deal with a real inconvenience when fixtures begin to malfunction and parts are no longer available. Or, they may have become concerned about the safety of older family members and want to upgrade to avoid falls and slipping. Our advice is to contact us for a free consultation before your bathroom reaches that stage. We will provide a realistic estimate on the amount of time the job will take at each phase — from design and selection of new fixtures, and finishes to installation.”
Beeck points out that one of the great advantages of working with Tropical Plumbing is that the company has the expertise to handle every phase of the project, saving time and dollars for the homeowner.
“If repairs are needed, as licensed contractors, we are able to handle everything from plumbing to structural alterations. In some cases, the work can be done in stages. We accommodate the family’s schedule whenever possible.
“The initial consultation is critical because it enables the remodeler both to assess the space and become familiar with the lifestyle of the family, including any special needs of seniors. Renovations that address such concerns may include adjusting the height of counters, sinks, and toilets and making cabinets more accessible, plus placement of grab bars at various locations in the room,” he adds.
Age-friendly remodeling is a specialty of Tropical Plumbing and Bath. A Building Industry Association “Remodeler of the Year,” Beeck introduced walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii more than a decade ago and has installed these fixtures in men’s and women’s senior living facilities in Kuakini Medical Center. Walk-in showers are currently Tropical’s most popular installation. These custom-designed showers can be equipped with such accessories as 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, non slip floors, and tile and travertine finishes. Extra-wide, barrier-free designs can be specified for wheelchair accessibility.
Tropical Plumbing and Bath is currently offering a $1,500 discount on walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs, as well as total bathroom renovation.
The company has received 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.
“From the start, your user-friendly approach made the entire renovation process relatively painless. I greatly appreciate your prompt responses, your professional guidance when decisions needed to be made and your discounts to help make the project more affordable. Your top-notch crew were focused, respectful, skillful, neat and motivated to do their very best. It was a pleasure to work with you. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend you and your team to anyone seeking to do a renovation.”
