Owner and President, Yvette Burdett
Yvette was born and raised on Oahu and is a graduate of Leilehua High School, where she decided to pursue work in the construction industry as a means of furthering her own education while raising her then newborn daughter Azurae of which has recently earned her own degree and is pursuing a career in agriculture. A proud mother, with work ethics that we all hope to instill in our children, she takes pride in her work that has provided the livelihood for her daughter and her daughter’s education as well.
The construction industry has brought many experiences and growth to Yvette’s career. She has spent time on each trade in the industry studying the combined effects of each and how they connected to form a final finished product. Her mentors provided much needed advice and education about the local market, economy and business culture. She honors the time spent with each mentor who taught her the many reasons why we take care of each other in Hawaii and most importantly how we service our customers who are in need of our service. Yvette states, “Taking pride and ownership in what you do for your client will come back in ten folds when you are most in need.” This has been her philosophical approach in caring for the needs of her clients and holds true on each project.
Yvette obtained her contractor’s license in 2007 and continues growing her industry knowledge by attending specialty trade classes to stay abreast of new products and current regulations. Yvette received her Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) certification on April 15, 2010 and was one of the first RRP certified females in the Hawaii remodeling industry. The Federal law creating the RRP rule was passed in 2008 and took effect on April 22, 2010. The Environmental Protection Agency’s RRP rule requires anyone (remodeling, renovation and painting contractors and most other trades) who works in pre-1978 housing for compensation and who might disturb painted surfaces to become an EPA Certified Renovator by taking a “Lead Safe Work Practices” RRP class from an EPA accredited training provider.
Her business motto is “Spec to Perfect.” She prides herself in her ability to specify the most suitable products based on each individual’s situation. Her background in material sales and design enables her to make the most appropriate suggestions compared to the typical contractor who may lack the knowledge of specialty products and therefore, may not deliver the best value or your investment or worse, install a product that could fail and disappoint your expectations.
With 25 years’ experience in the industry in Hawaii, Yvette has formed strong relationships with local vendors, as well as knowledge of their current inventories and quality of their products. She continues to forge developing relationships and maintains mutual respect with those who provide with the answers and solutions to solve each projects unique requirements. Yvette has a keen eye for detail and also a good sense of organization, budget and scheduling. You can rely on Yvette to put together a package that works within a budget and is delivered on time.
Your options are open in discovering solutions available to you as a homeowner and Yvette will be sure to provide you with the confidence you need for your investment in your family’s needs. Please join her in a conversation about your upcoming project to experience the kind of service that everyone homeowner deserves. Experience the Best!
