Dear Mr. Peazer:

Recently, it came time to refurbish two specially-shaped treasured 60-year-old chesterfields. Within 24 hours of our first telephone conversation, a very positive and enthusiastic Berkley Peazer was at my front door bringing with him a broad selection of fabric sample books in a good range of prices.

He carefully listened to what I wanted and then with pride talked about the training, experience and expertise that he and his staff could offer and utilize to meet my requirements.

He left the fabric books with me for a couple of hours while he went to visit another customer and by the time he returned I had selected a beautiful paisley pattern suitable in both colour and price range.

He examined and sized up the furniture pieces and within a very short time, produced a reasonable quotation as well as a timetable for completion of the work.

A patterned material is far more difficult to work with and the paisley design that I chose was a real challenge for placement of the pattern as well as matching, cutting and seaming.

He delivered what he promised and I am well pleased.

Berkley was referred to me by a close friend, and now I understand why she spoke so highly of him. It was a complete pleasure to deal with him from start to finish for my recent upholstery project. He offered a broad range of attractive fabric and leather samples, quoted a very fair price for the work, and delivered on time and on budget. Most importantly, the final product was executed professionally with the highest level of attention to detail. It is obvious that he takes a great deal of pride in his work and in ensuring that his clients are delighted with the final results. I know I am.

"The real value in working with Burkcraft is professional advise from an experienced craftman. Not only did they do a great job on our piece, their guidance was invaluable in making decisions."

Dear Burkley and Laura,

I just wanted to tell you both once again how much I love the chairs you re-did for me recently.  I had it in mind that they would end up looking pretty good.  However, I really hadn't imagined how terrific they would actually be.  I had an official unveiling over the Thanksgiving Weekend, and everybody who was there  was absolutely raving about them (including me ).

When I need that kind of work done again, I'll be going straight to you.

All the best,
David Wilson

Laura and Berkley,

Just wanted to let you know how much we love our newly upholstered couch!  I found your customer service to be excellent in terms of quick response and follow up, and we were pleasantly surprised to have the couch delivered ahead of schedule.  You were both very helpful in advising us on leather sample and design, and we couldn't be happier with the quality of work.  Overall, dealing with your company has been a great experience and we will be recommending you to all of our friends.

Hello Berkley

When my beloved leather couch and chairs were clearly past their best before date, I had to decide whether to replace, or renew them.  I am very happy that I chose reupholstery, and equally glad that I found Burkcraft Furniture Restoration.  Berkley offered his expert advice, but not until after he listened to what I was hoping to achieve. Berkley and Laura responded in a timely and professional manner to all my questions.   My furniture really is better than ever, and, I believe, better than anything I could have bought new.  It is the comfortable couch and chairs I have loved for many years, in a beautiful leather, and a gorgeous colour (I had so many choices).  The work is impeccable.  I would highly recommend Burkcraft.  With thanks.






To whom it may concern;

I want to tell you about the amazing service my Wife and I received from Burkcraft Furniture Restoration.

Twelve years ago we bought a very expensive brown leather recliner made by Hancock and Moore. The chair was the most comfortable piece of furniture I have experienced. Through the years that followed, this chair was well loved and well used by us and our dog Chester, who also liked to sit in it whether I was there or not. Eventually as you can see by the pictures, the chair’s leather broke down.

It got to the point of embarrassment, and the chair had to be hidden away when anyone came over. We were planning a move, and the last thing we wanted was a tatty old chair in our new house. My Wife suggested I call around and see what could be done.

I called many shops, but only one said they would come to my house for a free estimate and that was Burkcraft Furniture Restoration. The owner of the business, Berkley Peazer came that evening, explained the options and what the job entailed. His price was better than reasonable and Berkley arranged to have the chair picked-up.

I have to say that I wasn’t sure what to expect, given the state of the chair when it left. My Wife and I were shocked  when Berkley returned the chair to us. It was beautiful. The stitching on the repair work was better than the original and the leather was stunning. The sections of the chair that had not been replaced had been reconditioned. The overall appearance was of a brand new high quality piece of furniture.

Burkcraft lived up to their claims and did so with speed, economy, and exceptional courtesy. I have already told several friends of the great service and am planning on having another piece redone by Berkley and Co.. See the before and after pictures for yourself. They tell the whole story!

I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic job you did in repairing my sofa-bed this afternoon. Your work was clean, fast and professional.  I cannot wait to see my recovered chair!  I look forward to hearing from you both next week.

"Recently we retained Burkcraft Furniture Restoration to refinish 4 classroom tables for us. We were under time constraints to get ready for the first day of school. Berkley advised that all 4 tables would need to be stripped, sanded, and lacquered. Berkely assured me that he would do his best to have them back to us by Friday. In fact, he delivered them on Thursday!  Great refinishing job! Outstanding service.  Friendly and professional."

Hello Burkcraftleather,

We just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated Gary coming to our home today to fix our old sofa bed. Just to recap the situation, we had purchased a new mattress for our 20+ year old sofa bed only to find it did not fit in our old mechanism. We had ordered a new mechanism from the same mattress company only to find out that it did not fit in our sofa bed as well. Apparently our old mechanism is just that, very old. The company took the new mechanism back but we were out money as they would not take the mattress back. We saw your ad on kijiji and decided to call. When I saw your mechanism, I knew it would not fit. But instead of Gary saying it would not fit, like the other guys that came, he spent time and worked with our old couch and now we have a working unit. Gary was a great guy and we were so pleased with him and the work he did. We wanted to post our positive experience on your website, but couldn't find where to do that.

Once again, thank you so much!

Dear Berkeley,

Our Italian leather couch has had a sagging middle seat for several years. In recent weeks it looked even worse. It got to the point where anyone sitting in the middle had a difficult time standing up! I finally got fed up, went online and googled ‘leatherfurniture repair in Toronto and was lucky to come across your website. Your site attracted me with its before & after pictures but most importantly your in home repair option.

I emailed you on Friday night asking for an estimate and you phoned me first thing Saturday morning to discuss. To make a long story short
you arrived at my house the same day ready to fix my sagging seat! With the photos I emailed you, you were at my door ready to go with
all of the right materials. You worked quickly, efficiently, with a happy smile and a terrific attitude and in just over an hour, my couch
was as good as new. It’s now been over a week since you were here and my husband and I still sit on the middle seat and smile – it’s such a
big difference and we feel like we have a brand new couch.

Thank you so much for your in home service! I would not hesitate to call you again and will happily recommend you to anyone in need of
leather furniture repair!

Many thanks Berkeley!
