Read What Our Clients Have to Say About Fortune Restoration!

Working with Matt Fortune has been a great experience. As the Director of Project Management overseeing all capital improvement projects for over 125 condominium associations; I have had the pleasure of working with Fortune on many large, complicated projects. From the fast professional responses, meetings and proposal turnaround; I can’t say enough about their team sticking to a schedule and producing high quality work. We have a wonderful relationship with them and would recommend them to others on their capital improvement projects.

Nick Ciolino | First Community Management | Director of Project Management

We highly recommend Fortune Restoration! Our 140-year-old, five-story condominium building needed maintenance of its Indiana sandstone decorative rock which flanks the entrance and the structural steel in balconies, gates, stairs and railings. Our Fortune Restoration sales rep, Matt Fortune, invested the time to thoroughly understand our needs and provided a competitive quote. The crews were attentive to detail, patient and informative when answering questions and explaining the process. Adequate time and materials were devoted to preparation leading to a durable, visibly attractive outcome. This is a professional operation to whom you can trust your project.

Kathy Mankin | Dearborn Condo Association | Board Member

Working with Fortune on a few projects has been a great experience. Their pricing is fair, they communicate often and keep a clean work environment. I manage condo buildings and residents are quick to complain, but I have yet to get a complaint on any Fortune project. I would recommend them to anyone!

Matt Schreck | Forth Group | Senior Community Association Manager

We, the Benedictines Sisters of Chicago, in Rogers Park, have relied on the counsel and expertise of Fortune Restoration for untold years.  Our Monastery, built in 1906, plus the additional buildings adjoining the original convent, present both the probable and unpredictable repairs.  Both Matt Fortune and Bernie Halloran annually examine the interior and exterior of our multiple buildings to determine necessary maintenance. We receive comprehensive and detailed proposals, including pictures, for each projected area. Their qualified crew arrive as scheduled and communicate their progress, plus present the unanticipated, as they progress in their work.  Working with the entire Fortune Restoration Team never fails to satisfy the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago; we are most grateful.

Patricia E. Cielinski | Benedictine Sister of Chicago | Monastery Maintenance Coordinator

I have worked with Matt of Fortune Restoration from the beginning as my time as a property manager.  He, and all other representatives from the company, have been of major help to us.  They are very quick to respond, accommodating, and happy to meet with anyone to explain the process of repairs with technical details.  Fortune is also timely with the completion of their work and quick to communicate any obstacles along the way.  They are a contractor we always look to when in need of tuckpointing or related services.

Andrew Gechter | Property Manager | Urban Apple

Coordinating the concerns and skills of governing boards and construction professionals is an important part of succeeding with major restoration projects. This past year, one firm that has been instrumental in the planning, implementation and success of a couple of unique masonry projects is Fortune Restoration. They can handle anything from the restoration of an ornate terra-cotta façade on a historical building as well as a community garage that leaks like a sieve.

Janet K. Nelson | Operations Manager | Cagan Management Group

I just want to thank you and your crew for the great restoration masonry job you did for the university. The work was done with craftsmanship and thought. All your employees were very knowledgeable and respectful of where they were working. I look forward to working with you again soon.

Barry O’Quinn | Sr. Manager, Building Envelope, Sheet Metal & Masonry | The University of Chicago

I use Fortune for exterior projects. They are responsive, informative and do a great job at a competitive price.  Bernie is awesome.

Elissa Marcus | Property Manager | Westward 360

We recently contracted to have our exterior Bell-tower repainted and repaired. We engaged Fortune Restoration to do the necessary tuckpointing and painting. During the process we found all the people from this company to be cooperative, thorough and careful. The results of this work have restored the beautiful building of Our Lady of Hope and improved our ability to maintain the building.

Reverend John W. Clemens | Pastor | Our Lady of Hope

We have been happy with the quality of the work, from the repair and painting of numerous exteriors to the detailed preparation and finishing of some of our important professors’ offices. Your staff was always thorough and professional. Most importantly, they kept the people in the spaces where they were working appraised of the work at hand and tried to cause as little inconvenience as possible to these occupants.

Steve Burke | Paint Shop Foreman | Northwestern University

This year Fifth Third Bank has been working with Fortune Restoration on more than 30 exterior building projects. At this time I would like to express our satisfaction with the work that your company has performed for us. The crews that have visited our properties have been exemplary. They are extremely hard-working and complete projects in minimum time. They conduct themselves in workmen like fashion and our staff members at the properties where they are working have complimented them for their professionalism.
