Honesty, integrity & experience

“I am the property manager for a luxury condominium in the Boston area that engaged the services of Ted Fernald of Atlantic Restoration.

We had a completed the restoration of a garage surface of had significant damages. Our engineer met with Ted on a weekly basis to go over each repair and then checked the quality of his work. Ted was very cooperative with the residents throughout the project and cooperated fully with our staff and the valet company hired to transport vehicles to and from the garage. If you have a difficult project that needs Ted’s expertise, I would recommend Atlantic Restoration for your next project.”

Barry Quinlan, The Copley Group

Ted’s personal integrity as well as his competence and dependability are instrumental to his ability to generate new business as a result of the recommendations from satisfied clients.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Atlantic restoration since its inception. I find Ted to be very knowledgeable and responsive. It has been a delight to work with Ted and his crews. Everyone is always professional and extremely helpful.”

Building Manager, Seal Harbor Condos, Winthrop, MA

“I just wanted to say, that Atlantic is doing a great job at the building.

I was home on Friday, and caught one of the guys before he left. He was kind enough to show me what they had done on the North side – extensive work – and explain what they are finding in other areas. He also had some interesting feedback about the windows, so I am not sure if they will put any of their findings in writing – but that may help us with grounds to push for owners to have them replaced (or have them inspected). He was actually concerned that the condition of the windows would undermine the work they are doing on the masonry.

I thought I would share that with you and the Board, and if you speak with Atlantic you can pass on my compliments regarding the crew. They were even on-site all weekend, working on the East (ocean) side.”

Condo Association, 285 Lynn Shore Dr, Lynn, MA

“Shortly after we agreed on a contract with Atlantic for work on the south elevation there was a significant storm that caused damage to a different elevation, previously restored by another waterproofing company. Ted’s team immediately engaged an engineer which identified significant issues with some of the work previously performed. With the engineer’s report in hand the scope was completely revamped to address the most serious needs of the building – stopping water infiltration and preventing additional damage to the structure of the building, while remaining sensitive to our limited budget.

Ted’s knowledge of the products and his willingness to share this knowledge really helped our Board and owners understand what needed to be done to restore our building. His flexibility, pricing, ongoing communication, and honesty made it easy as a Board member to oversee this project.”
