We believe there is no greater proof of the quality of our work than the words of others. Here are what some of our clients and partners have to say about Tatra Renovation.

Alain & Jessica Bourgeois — Clients

Paul Barlik and the supremely competent and caring crew from Tatra were able to take a remarkable raw space and wonderously transform it. Joining in, and amplifying, the inspired vision of our architect and designer, the crew brought the concept to a truly stunning fruition. The project represents a totally successful collaboration between owners, architect, designer and general contractor. We have been incredibly fortunate and are most appreciative.

In light of our satisfaction with their execution of the construction project, we were happy to engage Tatra Renovation to provide us with maintenance services on an on-going basis into the future. Through their superbly-run maintenance program, Tatra promptly and effectively addresses any and all issues that arise in the course of our home ownership. Relying on Tatra, we no longer have to worry about finding, and securing the services of, plumbers, electricians, etc. A single call to Tatra insures that we will receive an immediate, effective, honest and reliable priority response to any home emergency we may encounter. The peace of mind that Tatra’s maintenance program provides us is invaluable.

In short, we are pleased to recommend Tatra, without hesitation or reservation, both for their contracting work and for their innovative maintenance program.

Meret Lenzlinger — Architect & Karen Wright — Interior Designer

It has been such a pleasure to work with Tatra Renovation, Inc. They are organized, courteous and absolutely meticulous in their craftsmanship. We have rarely had such a sense of collaboration in a project. In one very difficult build out that required a lot of out-of-the-box thinking, they cheerfully took on every challenge, often providing mock-ups and samples as we were trying to find the best solutions. We cannot stress enough how important the communication was to us—from the back office to Paul Barlik, the owner, to the foreman and all others on site. The execution is flawless, and we hope to be working with Tatra many more times.

Jonathan & Jessika Auerbach — Clients

Paul Barlik and his crew at Tatra were the general contractors on the gut renovation of our brownstone in Brooklyn, a project that took approximately 18 months from Jan 2013 - July 2014. We chose Tatra over two other candidates in the bidding process because their proposal was thorough, realistic, timely and professionally presented in every way. The work they went on to deliver surpassed all our expectations. We have owned and renovated several old houses before moving into Brownstone Brooklyn, and were impressed by Paul's knowledge of the architectural quirks of these kinds of buildings. Above all, we appreciated his willingness to always go above and beyond to make sure every little detail was perfect. His crew, from electricians to plumbers and especially carpenters, was outstanding, not to mention always courteous, on time and meticulously clean.

Once our renovation was completed, we engaged Tatra for their bi-monthly maintenance service. This has been invaluable and well worth it. Tatra's workmen are always available for small repairs, routine maintenance, adjustments to our heating and a/c systems, and even jobs such as hanging art, installing new lighting or changing difficult bulbs. They are reliable and trustworthy and know our house better than we do. We highly recommend this service.

We could not recommend Tatra Renovation more highly, and would be glad to answer any further questions.

Robert Watt & Dawn Bradford-Watt — Clients

Tatra was recommended to us by our architect who said that they were some of the best they had ever worked with. We could not agree more.

We have heard many horror stories about working with contractors on long projects and the complaints range from major schedule creep to serious implementation flaws. We experienced none of that with Tatra; our renovation was completed without a single complaint.

Paul and Tatra Renovation team were some of the most courteous and professional people we have ever worked with. We found them to be extremely trustworthy, meticulous, and highly skilled at every aspect of construction and construction management and overall they really care about their work. They noticed little things before we did and just fixed them. The Tatra team was considerate, had a great attitudes and were just good people to work with.

Our renovation included refinishing period details, gutting some spaces and incorporating brand new modern design. Tatra did an excellent job of restoring ornate plaster molding and matching new and old wood so everything looked consistent. It is practically impossible to distinguish the old from new. The original woodwork now looks like a completely rejuvenated version of it's former glory and the new modern walls are perfect and precise. We were particularly concerned about contractors sanding and repairing the original parquet flooring but Tatra really did an exceptional job.

We were so satisfied with their work that we inquired about cleaning services and are currently using theirs on a weekly basis. Again, Paul and his team have proven to be reliable and conscientious.

We enthusiastically recommend Tatra for any renovation project. They are truly the best.

Working with Paul and his team to renovate my studio apartment in the Village was one of the most fun, creative and rewarding experiences I've ever had. The end result is exactly what we scoped and the quality of the work is high. Paul's an exception project manager and a joy to work with.
Hillary Butler — Client
Paul Barlik is a kind, honest, hard working and talented professional, who hires people that reflect well on him. My newly renovated home was built with the utmost care and attention to detail. During the project I received phone calls and letters from my neighbors raving about Paul and his men; that they were exceedingly helpful, thoughtful and cleaned up the site each day perfectly before leaving. I would never do a project without Paul and Tatra.
Christopher & Karen Retzler — Clients
I have worked with Paul for the past five years on multiple jobs in both high-end residential and commercial. The quality of his work and the professionalism of his firm and employees are first class. Paul is a thoughtful contractor who is consistently looking to enhance the final product without taking shortcuts. His estimates — both financially and length of job — are second to none. I highly recommend Tatra Renovation.
Gherardo & Ginevra Guarducci — Clients
My husband and I decided to renovate our two-floor, 7,400 sf apartment in 2005. After countless problems and delays with another contractor, we called Tatra to take over. We can state unequivocally that Paul Barlik is a complete professional. He is respectful and honest. He has stayed true to both the budget and the timeline ensuring a quality of work that comes close to perfection. His team of workers is seamless, discreet, talented and extremely helpful. We can recommend Tatra renovation without reservation and feel absolutely confident that clients will be completely satisfied.
Jessica Omparis — Client
I was terrified of renovation until I hired Tatra Renovation. They made the whole process quick and easy. The work was completed on time and budget. Paul kept me informed about the stages of renovation. He listened to my concerns and he made suggestions/repairs that were crucial for long term success of the remodeling. He is reliable and he goes beyond his contract responsibilities to complete the project so that everyone is satisfied.
Peter Goldsmith & Kathleen O'Connell — Clients
Tatra Renovation was a wonderful discovery for us. They renovated a kitchen and two bathrooms for us, and throughout the construction they were utterly professional. There was a surprising level of personal investment in our satisfaction with every little detail. We felt secure that we were being cared for properly throughout the project, through whatever little surprises or small delays inevitably arose. We lived in the apartment during the renovation and the apartment was left spotless every evening. The workers were polite and clean. Relationships with the building staff were carefully managed. Paul Barlik’s experience, judgment and good taste were always in evidence. I can’t recommend Tatra highly enough!
Jeff Sherman — Architect @ Delson or Sherman Architects PC
We’ve worked with Paul Barlik of Tatra Renovation on five residential projects. We keep coming back because he makes us look good. With Paul we know even our most difficult client will be perfectly happy. He is a problem solver with high standards of construction and close attention to detail. He plans ahead and knows how to stick to a construction schedule. His change orders are fair. And he remains committed to his projects well after completion of the job. He even offers a service contract for ongoing maintenance and facilities management. I can recommend him highly.
