Founded by president Carl Gaumont in 1987, Pacific Isle Contractors Ltd. has been building and remodeling homes in the Islands for a quarter of a century. Gaumont described the company as a small contracting business that has found its niche in residential remodeling. Projects range from kitchen and baths to large-scale renovations, additions as well as new-home construction.

While Pacific Isle Contractors has completed many additions and renovations over the years, older homes built in the 1930s and 1940s are some of its favorite projects.


“We renovated a number of older homes in the Nuuanu and Manoa areas and appreciate the architecture of that era,” said Gaumont. “Some of these homes were considered ‘tear downs’ by other contractors, but after careful inspection, we found them quite structurally sound.

“You need to put things in perspective. If you’re going to spend the money on a large scale renovation and 10 percent of that cost is necessary for repairs to the structure, you’re probably ahead of the game once you figure in the replacement costs of one of these beautiful older homes.”

Oftentimes the clients will be living in the home while work is being done, so they are kept abreast of scheduling and the scope of work to be performed at any given time to minimize disruption to their daily lives.


“Communication is a high priority,” Gaumont said. “We want homeowners to know what to expect on any given day, so we can address any issues that might arise. Our goal is to help you attain your dream home.”

Here is feedback from clients:

It has been eight years since Pacific Isle Contractors did a very challenging, major renovation and addition to our very unique Kailua home.We were not only extremely happy with the results, but loved the experience of working together with Carl and our architect, Paul Sheffield. We are now looking forward to working with Carl once again, building a new home in Kahaluu. — Pau and Gail Switzer


We just completed renovating our home in Nuuanu, including new windows, siding and a family room addition with a beautiful deck for entertaining friends and family. Our experience with Pac. Isle Contractors has been extremely enjoyable. Carl and his crew are very professional and produce high-quality workmanship. — Andre Lee

“Your renovation should be fun, not stressful, and Pacific Isle Contractors works hard to earn your trust and confidence,” said Gaumont. “We want to be your contractor.”
