Burnett Windows and Siding Celebrates 40 Years

A front door says a lot about a person. How it is used can indicate the warmth of the family inside? Does it open wide to receive friends? Does it welcome neighbors who come knocking?
There is one Tulsa family who has their door swung open wide to receive clients who have a door, window, guttering or siding needs.  Burnett Windows and Siding, a family-owned business, is celebrating its 40th year in the community.
Founded by Guy Burnett and his son Scott in 1979, Burnett Window and Siding started its journey as an insulation company.  Unfortunately, Guy Burnett passed the following year, and Scott Burnett took the helm and started building on the company philosophy of honesty, integrity and quality work.  He mandates that his staff goes beyond getting the job done; he insists that the job is done right.  Burnett’s gauge for excellence is not how the property looks when the installation is finished, but how the property lives when it is complete.  While the job is ongoing, installers must work quietly and politely.  When done, are their clients happy with their work?  It seems so since 75 percent of their work comes from referrals.
“We so enjoyed working with Burnett Windows and Doors,” Collinsville client Teresa Hovenga said. “They were professional, and the work and product was very high quality. Working with their representative was a pleasure. His honesty was most appreciated. Our house was definitely a challenge with many angles and uneven in places due to add-ons. I highly recommend this company for all your window, siding and door needs. Thank you Burnett Company for making our sad old house happy again.”
Scott Burnett is not alone in this endeavor.  His wife Kim and his son Neal complete the unified team that keeps the excellence going.
They have a fully interactive 4,000-square-foot showroom where clients can browse, gain product information and pick styles and colors to their individual taste for doors, windows, gutters, siding and insulation.  Scott Burnett picks the highest quality products with doors made by the Amish, which is known for its distinctive handcrafted work. 
The Burnett’s have a new and updated focus.  They have recently launched a new service taking their excellence from outside the home now to the inside the home with bath and shower remodels.
The Burnett family business focuses on client relationships. Their quality work is validated by the industry awards they have won:
 
• Angie’s List Super Service Award 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017
• Tulsa Metro Chamber of Commerce Leadership Award
• 1999 Metro Tulsa Chamber of Commerce Family Business Person of the Year
• 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 Award of Excellence For Superior Sales and Service of Norandex Building Materials
• 2014 Recognition of 35 Years of Outstanding Service to Customers, Employees and Community from Infinity By Marvin
 
The Burnett family is heavily involved in helping others through their participation in area non-profit organizations including Little Light House, which assists children with special needs, and where Scott and Kim Burnett have served on the board. They also support Pathways, a non-profit organization to assist adults with developmental disabilities; Sertoma, a non-profit organization that offers employment opportunities to individuals with intellectual and physical handicaps; Habitat for Humanity, a partnership program for homeowners; and Loaves and Fishes, which reaches out to the hurting with physical and spiritual food.  The Burnett’s invest their time and talent into these special organizations by getting involved in ways such as hosting parties and even going bowling as a family with these groups. 
One thing that Scott Burnett is unmovable on is his faith and the calling he feels on his life.
“When our family started the business, we dedicated it to the Lord,” Scott Burnett said. “We try to live and act by the Golden Rule and make sure we treat everybody with honesty and integrity.”
This family has a strong sense of purpose to serve their clients. One indicator of that is the blog on their business website www.burnettinc.com/blog with features that help homeowners care for the biggest financial investment of their lives, their home.  Tips are shared in areas such as the prevention of moisture damage and other areas that can serve a home as well as raise its value.
Burnett’s Marketing Manager Eli Ferrell said, “We approach everything we do with one main question, ‘How can we help?’ We solve problems and improve the quality of life for our customers. We know that if we serve, serve, serve, instead of sell, sell, sell, the business will grow, and we’ll sleep easy at night knowing we’re doing the right thing.”
The Burnett Windows and Siding showroom is located at 11202 E. 61st St., Tulsa, and all estimates are free. They can be reached at 918-286-7600 and at www.burnettinc.com.
