The work quality was excellent with great attention to detail. Pete Fortune came out and inspected the job and made sure everything was done to the highest standards. The crew was very careful to keep the job site clean and minimize dust and mess (tuckpointing is generally very messy). The crew showed up promptly and completed the work on schedule. I highly recommend Fortune Restoration.

Excellent. Everything was quick and easy. Tom arrived on time for the estimate. I checked his references; they all were good, so I hired him. He gave me a start date & time and HIS CREW STARTED EXACTLY WHEN HE SAID THEY WOULD! (even during the massive snow storm in February!) Tom checked in every day. Work was very good and the project was finished slightly early. Will definitely hire Fortune Rest...

I've used Fortune Restoration in the past when I managed condominium buildings. After seeing the cedar siding work they did on a friend's house I decided to call Tom Fortune for my own residence. Tom took the time to listen and called his lead carpenter to discuss the various siding and trim options. He was able to write the estimate on the spot. They started quickly and there were no delays once ...

The crew did a fantastic job. They were timely, cleaned up their mess at the end of each day, and the house looks wonderful. I was concerned at the start b/c they are more expensive, but they are worth it. They did a quality job.

Outstanding! Fortune submitted its bid the same day and began work the next day. With winter coming, timing was very important to us and they exceeded our expectations. The team was friendly, professional and went out of its way to make sure we were satisfied with every step. It took 2 full days of high quality work and finished just before a storm. The wall looks great and we are very happy.

Vendor came highly recommended and great to work with. They were able to provide an appropriate solution for the mortar, to maintain the asthetics of the building. Work crew arrived on time, were knowledgeable and did a great job on the masonry repair. Extremely happy with the results and would hire them again to complete other masonry projects!

Fantastic. The crew was here for a week. They arrived on time, they were polite and professional and maintained CoVid awareness. They cleaned up at the end of every day and worked hard. They didn't cut corners, and the result was a house that looks better right now than at any point in the 25 years we have lived here. There are a couple levels of supervision and good communication at all levels. I...

It went beautifully. The total project (rehab of the porch where needed, and painting of the entire porch) was done in about 2.5 days. The crews were timely, professional, clean and kind. I will absolutely use them again, and will tell everyone in my area about them. I received prompt call backs while setting up the job, and prior to and during the job, received calls and text updates by the proje...
