Biz proves why experience matters
It’s time to install vinyl windows or vinyl siding. Tropical is the home of the experts. Tropical, better known as Vinyl is Final, has the very best products available in the vinyl window and siding industry. With more than 60 years of experience in Hawaii, Tropical is the only locally owned-and-operated vinyl window and vinyl siding business in the state. As far as owners Mike and Matt are concerned, that makes all the difference in the world. Tropical has its roots here in Hawaii. With over 20,000 Hawaii customers and three generations of doing business for 60 years in Hawaii, Tropical is special.
Mike, the soon to be next full owner of Tropical, says what sets us apart is our love for Hawaii as a family. I’m a Saint Louis School alumnus and, just like the brotherhood that is taught there, Hawaii people have that same brotherhood of aloha. I went to college in the mainland, but I couldn’t wait to get home because there is nowhere like Hawaii. It’s just special. The spirit of the Hawaii people is just different. That’s why I want Tropical to keep going. My dad says he has 20,000 promises to Hawaii homeowners — and I intend to keep them. I love what I do every day, interacting with local people. Locals are our market and that’s why our other slogan is “Buy Local.” We service what we sell and are known for the best products and installation work. No shortcuts like other mainland contractors.
And Matt, Mike’s father, agrees. Our family has built this business on doing a better job — a better job with better materials, pride in workmanship and happy customers. Even in these tough times when business is so hard to do because of rising prices and shipping issues, Tropical has the experience and long-term relationships to get jobs done. Matt says it starts with the estimating process. We at Tropical have no salesmen. This means no high sales commissions, instead we have owners who care. All estimates are done by Mike or myself. We as owners have real experience. We are the contractors. Not just a salesman with a puffed-up title and a 50% discount that is still higher than Tropical prices. No shortcut installs and complete lifetime warranties. I always tell homeowners we may not be the best salesmen, but we are the best at what we do, and aloha and stability are key. Why deal with mainland outfits when you got us? We have been here 60 years. Most companies, were not even born when we started. That’s experience and stability.
So, the votes are in. Tropical has been voted Hawaii’s Best every year since I can remember. Call Tropical for the best materials and job, but more for local service. Buy local because Matt and Mike at Tropical will be here. Like Matt says, we have nowhere to go back to, like the mainland guys.
We will be here keeping our 20,000-plus promises as long as Hawaii supports us and buys local. Call Tropical today at 808-593-2000 or come to our showroom at 1351 S. Beretania St. Open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.
