FR Review:
As one of the oldest flooring companies in New York, Haywood Berk is now in its third generation. Otto Berk established the company in 1921. Today, grandson Roger, described by sources as a knowledgeable craftsman, is said to run the family firm with dedication and professionalism. Indeed, references are quick to say good things about Haywood Berk’s attention to detail and commitment to high-quality service. We also hear that a Haywood Berk floor “holds up for a very long time” and that the craftsmanship is “absolutely superb” with “exquisite” detailing. Many top-tier designers will not consider anyone else for their discriminating clients.

The firm deals only with wood, and performs services such as installation, restoration, custom design, staining, pickling, refinishing and repair. This residential and commercial firm takes on almost 200 jobs per year in Manhattan, the Hamptons, Westchester, Connecticut and Los Angeles. Berk has been commissioned by Carnegie Hall, the South Street Seaport Museum, Bergdorf Goodman, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Bloomberg building and MoMA. While some wish the customer service was slightly more responsive, most agree these veterans’ top of the line product justifies their upper tier prices.

Representative Client Comments:
“Good job. Do it until they get it right.” “Hard to get through to them as they often did not return phone calls, but I know that their work quality will always be excellent.” “As a decorator, I can schedule their work within two weeks on a consistent basis.” “Roger understands his products, but more importantly he understands his high-end client base.” “Clearly not cheap, but an absolute bargain given the quality.” “I didn’t even know they came in to sand my floors–they protected the furniture so well and didn’t leave any mess behind.” “Great with matching old and new floors.” “Another contractor said the only hope my floors had was to completely take out everything; but Roger came in, fixed the problem areas and literally saved me thousands of dollars.”
