The Beginning: Home Repair Solutions (HRS)
Avi Gunzburg, the founder of HRS Flooring/The Carpet Warehouse, got a job straight out of high school with a local contracting company that was headed by an expert craftsman. Avi worked very hard with this company, under expert instruction, learning many valuable skills in the construction industry, as well as life skills. After working for a few years, Avi got his employer’s blessing and went out on his own to set up The Home Repair Solution, a handyman company.
The Home Repair Solution was a lot of hard work. Avi focused on quality work and excellent customer service doing a lot of the work himself with skills learned on the job at his previous employer. Through this diligence to his reputation, and commitment to his customers, The Home Repair Solution turned out to be a successful endeavor. However, there were few handymen skilled enough to complete the vast breadth of work required by a good handyman. Avi realized that this limitation would limit his growth – hence, HRS Contracting.
The Middle: HRS Contracting
HRS Contracting focused on small commercial and medium-sized residential contracting jobs. It was a small success, but the amount of knowledge, the limits that seem to be placed on quality work, and diverse types of skilled labor needed to run it was overwhelming. Avi decided to pick one section of home improvement and construction that he knew, loved, could be the best at, and that he could price competitively. So was born HRS Flooring/The Carpet Warehouse.
Today: HRS Flooring/The Carpet Warehouse
The decision to start a company that could be the best in the industry, competitively priced, and grown with a passion was made. Avi renewed his commitment to his core beliefs, bought $200 worth of samples from a local flooring distributor, took out an ad in the Pennysaver and was in business.
HRS Flooring started out of Avi’s home garage in Northwest Baltimore City. After a few months HRS Flooring/The Carpet Warehouse grew into an EZ Storage unit that was 30 x 10 – 300 square feet – and has been expanding ever since, upgrading to more and more warehouse, showroom, and office space to better serve the needs of customers.
After many years of very hard work with an intense focus on the beliefs that make up HRS Flooring, the company blossomed into an organization that many people rely on today for employment and competitively priced carpet and flooring. Not only that, HRS Flooring/The Carpet Warehouse continues to be known for their top-notch service.
In 2018, Avi sold HRS Flooring to current owner and president, Robert Klein. Bobby has been with HRS Flooring since its beginnings, running and managing the installation side of the business. He brings to the company decades of flooring knowledge, strong customer relations, and a solid industry reputation.
