I believe it is unusual for a client to be as pleased with a contractor at the end of a project, as the client was when the project began. The fact that we are as pleased as we hoped we would be with TG’s work is a tribute to you and the project you oversaw here. The scaffolding is now largely down, so we have our views back; and, we can see what the building looks like, and it is outstanding and elegant.
The project looks great. Your team was great on this project and I want to especially recognize Keith for being the point person on this successful project. Your constant and clear communication, Keith, set a great tone with management and ownership. All of you contributed to a careful execution of the work that resulted in underruns on the project allowances. I appreciate you being good stewards of our client’s money. Great job and I look forward to the next project with you guys.
TG’s attention to detail, and the pride they took in the job they were doing for us, manifest in a brilliant finished product… Tatley Grund truly transformed our building.

Rotary’s objective is “service above self’ and your company exemplifies this tradition through its involvement of community activities like this project. The staff and children at Childhaven will benefit from a safer and more attractive environment as a result of your efforts.
Environment Committee Chair
I am extremely impressed with the knowledge of this group. Obviously the quality of your people is a big part of the reason that Tatley-Grund is extremely well known as a leader in this industry
Technical Service and development Specialist
As you are aware, working in an occupied building with residents of all personality types, requires tact and diplomacy. James frequently showed he had what it takes, in these often delicate situations.
We are very pleased with the repair job your crews have done on our building. The men have performed in an extremely professional manner drawing compliments from our residents.
Your expertise in the construction realm, organizational skills, coupled with empathetic and skillful communications with a wide variety of owners clearly demonstrated that we made the correct choice in working with Tatley-Grund. Please feel free to use us as a reference in any of your potential jobs you are vying for.
HOA, Board of Directors
I want to express our appreciation for the exceptional manner in which Tatley-Grund expedited the repainting and resealing of our building at 712 Pear St… Thank you for giving the building a new, improved and fresh look. Again, please extend our thanks to Tatley-Grund and Mr.Lescantz for a job well done.
Division of Child Support Director
The entire board wants you to know that we are very pleased with the work Tatley-Grund has done. It was a long project, but we couldn’t be happier.
HOA, Board of Directors
Within one week our Learning Center was back in business with a bookcase that actually swiveled. I would like to thank Bill, Boone, and Sam for fixing it (and you for allowing the donation of their time). Their service was highly appreciated.
Thorough, careful, courteous, friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and flexible are some of the words to describe your staff from Tatley-Grund based on our experience with those who worked on our unit.
Linda E. Ortmeyer & Steven D. Helgerson
Thank you for your concern for detail in the window replacement project for my unit. Certainly that was reflected in the work done by your excellent crew. I want to especially recognize Khue Thao and Eduardo Martinez for their making sure everything was completed to my satisfaction. Great job all around!
I want to express how pleased I am with the way the work is moving forward on our balconies, and before that, on the water intrusion/front steps and landing project. Tatley-Grund workers show up on a timely basis every day, and seem to work hard and steadily. Demolition of the balconies is moving especially fast. Several of us have noticed that your workers are better than expected in communicating with board members and project leaders, so that we can inform residents and minimize impact of construction. In particular, Kish and Qer were extremely helpful while access via the front steps was blocked. They watched for delivery people and let them enter and exit via the gate to the upper parking lot so that residents could still get their mail and packages. All of the Tatley-Grund people have been pleasant and willing to answer questions.. Pat has been very responsive and helpful to us. We appreciate the good work.
Board of Directors, Chair
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.
