We have used Tropical Painting in the past for other projects. Last year they did a great job of replacing our old deck, so we recently had them come back to screen it in. Michael came out in advance to look at what we wanted done, and answer all of our questions. His team of carpenters completed the project in three days, and did a wonderful job! The completed project is exactly what we wanted an...

Mike and his team did an absolutely wonderful job on our kitchen remodel, which included removing a wall, building out a peninsula, tiling the floor, tiling the backsplash, and installing new light fixtures. We've already hired them to do a second project. Mike is very responsive and incredibly easy to work with -- would absolutely recommend!

We unfortunately had a terrible experience with Tropical Painting. They were supposed to do a $13k bathroom remodel. We paid them half upfront and after the demo and weeks of little to no progress and a failed inspection, we had to fire them. They were extremely slow, didn't communicate, did really poor quality work, and left a pile of garbage in our driveway and house for weeks that they said the...

Job went really well! We worked with a 3rd party designer beforehand, so had (almost) all materials ordered and on site before starting. Mike was cool with a couple of minor changes along the way. Stuck to timelines as much as possible. We were really happy with the end product and would use Tropical again.

Description of Work
We contracted with Tropical to do a full bathroom remodel. This included demo of existing soaker tub, shower, floors, toilet, mirrors, and lights over vanity. Tub water lines capped as we didn't need/want the tub. New tile floors installed. Completely new shower enclose constructed with tile floors and walls. Existing vanity was removed, raised 3", and reinstalled. Drywall replaced/repaired as needed. Toilet installed. Existing ceiling mounted light fixture was moved to line up with a second light fixture; both fixtures were changed out to LED fixtures. New LED fixtures installed over vanity. New mirrors installed.

I had a great experience working with owner Michael and his crew. They were professional, prompt, efficient and the bathroom looks great. There was a initial problem with some tile work in the tub, but Michael immediately resolved the problem, and they redid the work to my satisfaction. Michael was always very responsive and made sure to keep me in the loop during the renovation. I will hire him a...

Tropical has been my "go to" professional for all my painting and minor contracting work. Pricing is always fair. Their work is absolutely perfectly done every time, with a level of care and detail that is rare to find. Everyone on the crew, from Mike on down, is courteous, pleasant and very well-skilled. Obviously, highly recommended.
