Values at the Heart of Our Work

At Burl, we’re not just building structures, we’re building a community. We are a values-centered general contractor in Seattle, and we believe that collaboration and shared purpose are the cornerstones of success. We thrive when working with clients and subcontractors who resonate with our principles, and who are committed to building a better future alongside us.

Beyond profit, lies purpose. As a social purpose corporation, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on both the planet and the people we serve. While financial sustainability is essential, our true objective lies in maximizing our contributions to society and the environment.

This commitment takes many forms:

  • Empowering our people: We prioritize offering living wagesaffordable healthcare, and a 401(k) with immediate 100% vesting, recognizing the scarcity of such benefits in the small contractor community. This investment in our team fosters a safe and inclusive work environment where everyone feels valued and respected.
  • Building a more just and equitable society: As a values-driven contractor, we stand firmly by the belief that Black Lives Matter. We are committed to fostering inclusivity in everything we do, and we actively challenge the notion of “affordable housing” as a misnomer. We believe that everyone deserves a safe, warm, and reliable place to call home, irrespective of their background or circumstances. This is why we advocate for a diverse range of housing options, ensuring that everyone has access to the security and dignity that comes with a stable home.

We are a company built on integrity, compassion, and a deep commitment to making a difference. If you share our values, and are passionate about creating positive change, we invite you to join us on this journey.

Our Commitment: Beyond the Bottom Line

At Burl, we believe that transparency is paramount. While we strive to be competitive, the cost of our services extends beyond an hourly rate or a simple project estimate. We believe in the importance of considering the broader impact of your renovation project.

Here’s what sets us apart:

  • Investing in our people: We prioritize offering fair wages with benefits, ensuring stability and well-being for our team. This translates into dedicated professionals who are passionate about their craft and committed to delivering exceptional results. This investment in our team ultimately benefits you, by ensuring consistent quality and expertise throughout your project.
  • Responsible practices: We take pride in our commitment to responsible business practices. We are fully licensed, insured, and bonded, ensuring safety and compliance for both you and our team. Additionally, we believe in transparency in our pricing, with no hidden fees or surprises.
  • Continuous improvement: We are dedicated to learning and growing. We acknowledge that mistakes are inevitable, but we use them as opportunities to improve our processes and service. We are committed to open communication and responsive problem-solving, ensuring a positive and seamless experience for you throughout your project.

While our pricing may not always be the lowest upfront, we believe that choosing Burl is an investment in quality, transparency, and responsible business practices. You are not just paying for a service, but for the peace of mind that comes with knowing your project is in the hands of a dedicated and ethical team.

Ultimately, the decision of who to hire for your renovation project is a personal one. We encourage you to consider the broader value offered by different contractors, and choose the one that best aligns with your priorities and values.
