Walk-in showers increasingly popular

Tropical Plumbing & Bath

Tropical Plumbing & Bath is Hawaii’s leading resource for sales and installation of high quality walk-in showers and bathtubs. The award-winning general contractor has been named Remodeler of the Year by the Building Industry Association of Hawaii and received two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” awards.

As a general contractor and licensed plumber, Tropical installs walk-in showers and bathtubs in single-family homes and condominiums, both remodels and new construction, and also redesigns bathrooms to accommodate the new fixtures.

Its team of plumbing professionals and bathroom designers has the expertise to ensure that these major additions to your bathroom are operating properly, from the time of installation and into the future.

“The installation of showers and bathtubs is just part of the service we provide,” said Tropical Plumbing & Bath president Charlie Beeck. “We also have the capability to redesign bathroom spaces with tile, travertine and marble options, or add a new custom bathroom to a home. A remodeled, upgraded bathroom is one of the best investments a homeowner can make.”

“Walk-in showers are increasing in popularity. Homeowners have many options in designing and equipping a bathroom for greater convenience and safety of family members with limited mobility. For an “all walk-in” bathroom, a walk-in bathtub and shower could be installed together, given sufficient space. In a home with two bathrooms, the walk-in bath and walk-in shower could be installed in separate rooms. Tropical’s experienced plumbers and designers can advise the homeowner on the plumbing and drainage requirements for installation of the fixtures.

“There is really no limit to what can be designed and installed, once we assess the existing plumbing and provide a plan for the new installation. Some walk-in showers are simple enclosures with fixtures and a bench, often constructed with tile and left completely open on one side with no barrier. Deluxe walk-in showers enclosed with glass, with windows open to a view, benches, and multiple shower heads are specified today in high-end homes and apartments. Our experienced designers and plumbers work as a team to ensure that the installation is both aesthetically and operationally successful,” Beeck said.
