Local biz shares secret to success
Interested in installing new vinyl windows or vinyl siding? Let Tropical show you the best products and the right way to install them. Go to Tropical’s showroom at 1351 S. Beretania St., and you’ll see the best vinyl products money can buy. Tropical has been installing vinyl windows and siding since 1961 and is the oldest window and siding company in Hawaii. Remember, “Vinyl is Final.”
Tropical is the first company to install vinyl products in Hawaii. Its showroom has all the different colors and styles of vinyl windows, doors and siding. Tropical has won Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Hawaii’s Best every year.
Any company that has been in business for 60 years is a company you can trust. We came to this conclusion after doing research and realizing the average window or siding company in Hawaii does not normally last longer than eight to 10 years before going bankrupt. Contact Matt and Mike, the owners of Tropical, and ask them the secret to running a successful business.
“Business is tough everywhere, but after my father and uncle stepped down, I tried to remember what they taught me about business,” says Matt.
“First, always appreciate the small things in life. The day may not be perfect, but it could always be worse, so give 100%. Work hard and be humble. Take pride in your work. Be honest and give your customers the best products for their home at the best price available.”
Mike learned these same principles from his dad, grandfather and uncle.
“Be on time. Be honest and respectful,” Mike says. “No need to high-pressure or rush a customer. Never do a job unless you can do it right. And, most of all, value your customers. Most of our customers are kupuna, and
I see other companies trying to take advantage of them all the time. That’s why I think my father uses the slogan ‘buy local.’ You can normally trust the local guys. There is also more respect.
“(My dad and I) don’t always agree, but we are family, and that matters more than anything else, so we will always come to agreement on any issue,” Mike continues. “Plus, my father has been doing this for 45 years. I look to him because he is the foremost expert in Hawaii when it comes to vinyl windows and vinyl siding.”
What a refreshing family-run local business!
If homeowners want to purchase a lifetime product for their home, they should want to hire the company that has been in business in Hawaii the longest. That’s why Matt and Mike say “buy local” from Tropical — a Hawaii business that is 60 years old. That’s a sure winner!
So, let Tropical show you, by going to its showroom at 1351 S. Beretania St., where “Vinyl is Final.”
