Comments: They responded quickly to my request and were able to fit my small job into their schedule quickly. Rich had to match a new area to an existing floor. The color was tricky but he made sure to match the new section with the existing floor.

Comments: Rich and his team just finished refinishing our kitchen, family room, dining room, foyer and hallway. When I first started calling companies to get a quote, Rich responded to my message almost instantly. He promptly came out to give his estimate and we hired him to do the work. We felt very comfortable with his expertise, experience and knowledge during the estimate and were confident that he would do a good job. He was very flexible and worked to match our requested timeline. We had to change the work dates by a few days and he accommodated that. He finished the work on the exact day he said it would be done, and the move-in day was the same as he had indicated. This was important to us, as we had a dinner event coming up and wanted to be sure the furniture would be ready to move back in by a certain date. But most important, the floors look GREAT!!!!!! Impeccably done and exactly what we wanted. We had discussed that I wanted a natural look, no colored stain, and more of a matte versus shiny finish. They turned out exactly like I had envisioned and we are really happy! I would wholeheartedly recommend Rich for any flooring work!

Comments: Rich recently installed 450 sq ft. of new hardwood floor in our Los Altos home to match an existing 750 sq. ft. floor and refinished both with a clear commercial grade floor finish. The short version is, we were delighted with the work done by Rich and his team. First, it was really clear he wanted you to get something you were happy with. He was especially helpful when we were unsure on how to proceed. Instead of “You should do X”, He would thoughtfully consider what we were trying to sort out, offered a range of options, both pros and cons, answered our questions, and then let us decide. If we asked him his opinion, he would offer it, but always with the caveat, “but it’s really your choice.” Next, Rich is an experienced professional who takes pride in his work. He suggested finishing touches that were far more imaginative than other contractors we talked to. He spent several hours over several days, making a custom fit frame around the fireplace with wider Red Oak boards, specially fit to match the detailed contours of the fireplace at floor level. Looks fantastic. Also, for Rich it’s got to be straight, square, flat and just so, to meet his own demanding standards. He found a number of issues with the way our original floor was finished and then fixed them all. Lastly, his team was polite, considerate, and clean. They picked up a mess as they made it and the vacuums he uses are virtually dust free. We quoted four flooring companies, each of whom had their own approach. He had the best price, as well.

Comments: Excellent work done by Rich. He made sure that he met the project completion date. The work he did was extremely professional...no corners were cut. Everyone who sees the floors can’t believe that they are the original floors and love the look of the floors. He worked with us and offered awesome ideas. I would recommend Rich to anyone! Thank you, Rich!!

Comments: Rich did a beautiful job restoring our flooring. We receive compliments from all who see the floor. He worked very hard to make sure the project was complete in time for us to put the house on the market and is very easy to work with.

Comments: Rich is a Master Woodworking Craftsman; he completed our project within budget and kept to a tight deadline; he was professional, prompt and committed to the project. The quality of his work is absolutely top notch. We could not have found a better person to install a beautiful reclaimed hardwood floor.

Comments: Rich called promptly after I submitted my Home Advisor request and came out to our house later that day to give me an estimate. He and his crew completed the repair job with the minimum required demo of the damaged area and had everything completed and cleaned up in about an hour. I would definitely hire Rich again and already have to refinish an older section of hardwood flooring.

Comments: Old 1919 floor with LOTS of stains and damage in a rental, and they got it looking beautiful Wish I had before/after photos to share, but they went from almost black to warm honey brown and are gorgeous.

Comments: My hardwood was trashed. They restored it to like new. Understood the high traffic needs and addressed those with the right products. Moved my refrigerator that was not an easy task, and then put it back!! Beautiful job, timely, and easy to work with.

Comments: I highly recommend Rich of Barakatt Flooring. When I met with him to discuss the job, he was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me in words that I can understand. My home is very old and he knew exactly how to treat it. You can tell he has many years of experience. He completed the job within the time frame he said he would and when I needed to move my appointment to another day, he was understanding and flexible. His price was reasonable.

Comments: Rich deserves a 10/10 rating! He was professional, reliable, prompt, provided outstanding service, quality and price. He did everything he said he would, on time and the job turned out better than I expected. I had a small job on a tight timeline so I could rent my place to a new Tenant. He was in the middle of a very large job but made time to get my job done, as well. Many contractors wouldn’t even return my calls! Words can’t describe how much his reliability and dependability meant to me. YOU CAN COUNT ON RICH DO AN EXCELLENT JOB – NO JOB TOO SMALL OR TOO BIG!

Comments: Rich is extremely knowledgeable regarding older homes and there finishes. He did great job refinishing a small wood floor project for us when other contractors wouldn't even return our phone calls. He is extremely professional and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of the job done, I would highly recommend him.

Comments: Bottom line: I would recommend Rich Barakkat to any friends or family and I would hire him again for the below reasons: 1) Very Fair Pricing: I quoted with 3 other installers before selecting Rich and he was about on Par with the other 3 2) Quality Work: Rich is a professional hard wood installer period. Not a general contractor moonlighting as a hard wood installer. He took the time to make sure that all of the details were done so that the wood looks great in the end: moisture content of the wood was at equilibrium, the wood was racked properly [no H joints or lightning bolts], the risers on the stairs complemented the wood and the house, and he trimmed the fireplace and door landings 3) Great Customer Service: Rich knew that I was moving into a new house and that timing was critical so he made room in his schedule to get the job done as fast as possible to avoid inconvenience. In addition, Rich is very knowledgeable about wood and even though I supplied the wood, he took the time to educate me on some of the pros and cons of the different woods. He also updated me immediately on any issues that he found with the supplied wood via text and photos. There is 1 issue of a chipped board that 1 of his team installed over the weekend while Rich was out that I will provide an update on once Rich has taken a look at it. All in all, I would hire Rich again and recommend him.
