My favorite part of working with Tatley-Grund was knowing their workers (almost exclusively) are employees, not sub-contractors, and they had worked at their craft for sometime before becoming T-G employees. These folks all seemed to be on their game, highly skilled, and proud of their company. This professionalism and knowledge of one another and the job routine made us feel like the job went smoothly and as much as could be expected, was harmonious and with very few unexpected events.
TGI, in my opinion, are the pioneers in this industry for developing the methodology, products and proper application sequencing to provide a water tight building envelope. In addition, working on an occupied structure presents very unique challenges in maintaining good relations with the residents. I would simply state that hands down, you could not do any better than hiring TGI. Professional, courteous, perfect execution of work and a tremendous value added in problem solving.
The Tatley Grund on-site superintendent was excellent. He was a great listener and communicator. The superintendent was supported by his project manager, who was also a great listener and communicator. They held weekly meetings to keep us updated as to progress and address issues we raised. Do other companies communicate as well? We don’t know, but I would guess not.
Tatley Grund is a company I would hire again for most any exterior job associated with our building. Their ability to communicate extremely well places them above most large contractors.
As the representative for The Moorings HOA, in Richland, WA, I was in touch with Pat Edal of Tatley-Grund daily. He and his crew were polite and considerate to all the home owners. They did a great job of protecting our property during this project. They are experts in this field.
I’ve worked with Tatley-Grund for more than 20 years. Their quality of work is very good. Their onsite personnel are professional and work well with us, as well as our clients. We have consistent end results on our construction projects, which is a quality project when we finish.
Atlas Supply, Inc., (Atlas) established in 1917, is a stocking distributor of construction materials, specifically, waterproofing products for the building envelope. Atlas has worked and partnered with Tatley-Grund, Inc. (TG) since their inception in the early 90’s. TG’s inquisitive nature in material science and the pursuit of a better mousetrap helped Atlas introduce and market a better elastomeric coating for waterproofing leaky buildings – Dow Corning Allguard. They have been one of the largest Allguard applicators on the west coast. We have been fortunate enough to be involved with them as a material supplier on several of their largest projects – including Seattle Heights Restoration, Arbor Place and the current 2200 Westlake Renovation. Their work scope has evolved to include several of our products from joint sealants to deck coatings to window flashings. Atlas does not get all of their business but we are able to compete for it. Their people are fair and appreciate the effort we put forth to service their projects. They pay their bills on time. As a distributor, that is all we can ask for in a customer. We look forward to continuing our long relationship with them.
The entire experience for our building was excellent. Brandon Keller who I would consider our advocate and watch dog is the best. And, all of the Tatley-Grund crew is very skilled, pleasant, respectful of our building and its occupants, and very easy to work with.
I would recommend Tatley-Grund to anyone. I believe the firm excels at its craft, and customer service and keeping on schedule are excellent.
Our biggest fear before hiring Tatley-Grund was whether we board members would be spending our settlement money wisely and whether T-G’s optimistic assessment about repairing the building could really come true. We worried about what it would be like to have a crew around every day for a year. When Stacey Grund came to Portland to meet with us, along with Mike Spadafora, we were really pleased and impressed with his knowledge of our building and his desire to do this job…Great salesmanship and impressive customer service skills, and a genuine desire to do this job.
None of our fears materialized and our confidence in – and affection for – all of the crew grew day by day.
