Berceli did a gut renovation of our NYC apartment kitchen and one of our bathrooms along with cosmetic updates to two other bathrooms and a powder room. We are absolutely delighted with the result!!!
We worked with Samir, Georgi, Cindy and Karen throughout the design phase, getting Board and City approvals and through to end including inspections and recovery of our deposit. Despite the expected disruption and dust, we lived in our apartment the whole time and saw first hand the crew at work and got to make minor adjustments along the way. They were all highly skilled, polite, responsive to questions and considerate all the way to the clean up.
We are happy to recommend Berceli with no caveats and would go to them again if we needed to.
I remodeled my kitchen and 2 bathrooms and can not be any happier with the outstanding service we received.
Very professional and project was completed in a timely manner. I would recommend this company to anyone with no hesitation.
Great experience from start to finish!
Berceli completely renovated two bathrooms in our apartment and partially redid our third bathroom and kitchen. From our very first meeting with Cindy, the designer, we were immediately comfortable and impressed. At the next meeting in our apartment with Cindy as well as the contractor, Samir, we knew we wanted to work with this team. They had such great design and practical ideas while at the same time listened carefully to what we wanted our apartment to look like in the end. Every element of our apartment turned out exactly the way we envisioned. Together we looked at and chose tiles, fixtures, hardware and stone and it came out beautifully. We get a lot of compliments. Samir was, and continues to be, involved in any minor issues that arise (and the job was completed 6 months ago). He was very quick to complete the job on time and finish any outstanding punch list items. They have really gone above and beyond their job; they even assisted in plumbing issues in our apartment that was caused by a building wide problem (nothing caused by Berceli). It should also be noted that the office management team, especially Karen, is really easy to work with and knowledgeable in dealing with the City and the Management companies to get the job started and finished in a timely fashion. And the workers were amazing-always careful and attentive in every way as well as very trustworthy.
We are really thrilled to have chosen Berceli would absolutely recommend them for any job, large or small.
I hired Berceli to remodel the bathroom in my NYC apartment. I am not sure when it had previously been remodeled by the prior owner, but it was in sore need of being updated and turned into a more functional space for full-time living. I cannot say enough good things about the team at Berceli. They were extremely responsive during the whole design process. They provided excellent design suggestions and floor plans and helped me understand every step of the process. When there were certain things I wanted to purchase on my own, they were completely willing to let me do so. They worked with my building and were able to get design and construction approval without difficulty. When the project started, the workmanship was excellent and the workmen polite, prompt and tidy.
In fact, they went above and beyond many times. As I was about to start demolition on my voluntary project, I had to delay significantly due to a leak in my apartment that required significant work. My one project with Berceli turned into 2 quickly, and both turned out perfectly. I would recommend Berceli to anyone, and will use them again for any future projects.
We engaged Berceli to remodel our kitchen in our New York apartment. The kitchen was unchanged since the building was completed in 1986. The layout was poor, making it almost impossible for two persons to work in there at the same time. We had thought about how we wanted to change it and had a specific re-modeling in mind. Berceli’s designer created the final design after discussing various ideas for improving the initial design we had come up with. We ordered our cabinets from Berceli (Miralis, custom made in Canada) and Berceli set up an appointment with a tile shop in Manhattan to help us select our floor tiles and backsplash tiles. (We bought our appliances from Gringer & Sons, who coordinated delivery with Berceli.)
The work took six weeks, as planned. The Berceli team that did the work was excellent. They took great care in protecting our living room and dining room floors and containing dust within the “tent” enclosing the work area. They cleaned up thoroughly before leaving each evening. They adhered to all the condominium’s regulations and remained on good terms with the building staff throughout the job. They consulted me whenever necessary during the work (I was working from home part of the time), proposing options for running new electric lines (I opted for a route that involved making three small holes in a bedroom wall), and proposing plumbing options (I opted for sealing off the original water line to the refrigerator and running a new one from under the sink, so I could have an easier-to- access shut-off valve there).
The team was particularly impressive when it came to cosmetic details. For example, when doing the backsplash they spent several hours planning the tile layout and discussing it with me before starting work. Most impressive of all, they found a way of mounting the Miele retractable range hood that we had chosen so that, when retracted, it was exactly flush with the front of the adjacent wall cabinets (something not provided for in Miele’s installation kit and something we had not seen in any showroom).
We are delighted with our new kitchen and dining-area cabinet unit. Not only does it look beautiful but now the two of us can work in the kitchen at the same time. We can also talk to guests sitting in the living room while we work, because the kitchen is now so opened-up to the living and dining areas of the main room.
The team was able to quickly navigate the process of obtaining all the approvals from the building management and the city of New York. Work commenced and was completed on schedule. Ronnie stopped by my apartment nearly everyday to review the day’s work and provide me an opportunity to give my input as the construction was proceeding. Ronnie suggested “ Little extras” along the way for which there was “no charge”. The workers were extremely professional, respectful, cooperative, neat and pleasant. I was so pleased at this point that I decided to engage Ronnie’s team to design built-in table for my kitchen creating the impression that the Kitchen had all been renovated at the same time (not in stages).
I hired Berceli again for my second renovation. My second experience with Berceli involved installation of a washer/dryer, a countertop and cabinetry in the pantry, new flooring and a new closet to provide additional storage space. The project team assigned to me consisted of Ronnie, the project manager and Kelly, the designer. The superintendent complimented Ronnie regarding his honesty and his prompt attention. Kelly, the designer was a dream to work and promptly answered my phone calls. Ronnie was very accessible during the whole process from beginning to the end. You feel a great sense of trust when working with Ronnie.
Upon completion, the flooring installation was particularly impressive and received many compliments from other workmen passing through my apartment.
Allstate likes to say that “you are in good hands with Berceli”.
