Asphalt Restoration Technology Systems


(Winner 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 & 2014)

       We are honored to be the recipient of the Diamond Readers’ Choice Award. This marks the fifth consecutive year we have received this honor, and we want to first and foremost take this opportun-ity to thank all of our loyal customers and friends for voting for us again!

       2017 proved to be very exciting for Team ARTech. It all started on January 4, 2017, when Connie Lorenz, president of Asphalt Restoration Technology Systems, was featured and aired on CNBC’s Blue Collar Millionaires. Connie was also awarded and recognized by Enterprising Women as one of the top 2017Enterprising Women of the year. Team ARTech received the Pulse of the City for the third consecutive year, and for the fifth year in a row was recognized on a national level with the prestigious Top Contractor designation.

       In 2017, everyone in Florida was impacted by Hurricane Irma. Many found themselves behind the proverbial 8-ball, few more so than the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village in Davenport. This wonderful foundation reaches out and helps children with long-term ailments. After the storm, Sunshine Village put out an urgent request via Facebook for help and Team ARTech answered the call. Because of our efforts, we were recognized by Sunshine Village as their volunteer of the year. We were also awarded the Good Neighbor Award as recognized by the National Pavement Expo and Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction magazine.

       Thanks again to all for your continued support, and we hope 2018 rocks!

Always innovating in the pursuit of increased security and decreased cost, Envera is a leader in Next Generation asset protection. Through the use of cutting-edge technology and proprietary software, Envera provides more effective security than traditional guards for a fraction of the cost.

       Envera focuses on making sure that community entrances, clubhouses, pools, and other amenities are protected in a way that is not obtrusive to the quality of life. Our state-of-the-art central station oversees it all, operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with licensed Class D Virtual Guards.

       With the revolutionary Virtual Gate Guard, Envera uses strategically-placed cameras with two-way audio to allow remotely located guards to verify visitors or deny entry into gated communities. Auto-verify technology enhances the Virtual Gate Guard to immediately verify repeat and permanent visitors with driver’s license recognition and license plate recognition. Envera also secures resident lanes with access control solutions that prevent sharing of credentials, can be easily deactivated when needed, and can be managed by the licensed Virtual Security Guards.

       While the Virtual Gate Guard greets and screens visitors at a community entrance, Envera’s Active Video Surveillance keeps pools, parks, clubhouses, and other amenities clear of trespassers and vandals. When the area closes at night, video analytics monitor the asset and alert Envera’s guards when anyone enters. A Virtual Guard voices down to the trespassers to tell them the area is closed. If trespassers refuse to leave, Envera can contact the local authorities.

       In addition, Envera offers passive video surveillance, access control, and burglar alarm solutions to secure all areas of a community when needed. Envera provides all services from implementation to installation, servicing of equipment, and monitoring. It’s the Envera difference.

Southern Chute


(Winner 2018, 2017 & 2016)

       Southern Chute was born in 2001 from an idea Chet Ribner had when he was selling commercial maintenance supplies to condominiums. He was always being asked for something to clean the trash chute with or to counteract the odors. A little research and a lot of prayers later, we opened our doors on October 1st.

       We founded Southern Chute on two principles: that happy employees are invested in their company, and that we will not take a customer’s money unless we can make a difference at their property. Seventeen years later, we have two offices and 20 employees, and we have you—our satisfied and loyal customers! We value the relationships and friendships that we have developed with you over the years.

       Most of our employees have been with us 10 to 15-plus years. Many of you comment on how nice it is to see the same faces every year. I cannot put into words how proud they all were to hear about this award. Everyone received a “diamond” paperweight for their desks, and the pride that showed in their faces proved to me that our principles were right.

       Although Chet left us too early and is not physic-ally here to celebrate this honor, he left us his work ethic and his honesty as his legacy. Sandy and I appreciate your continued support!

Absolute Patio Furniture Restoration


(Winner 2018, 2017, 2016 & 2015) 

        As many South Florida community associations and property managers can attest to, their patio is very important to their communities. The problem with South Florida is that the weather is particularly hard on the furniture. The combination of the sun, humidity, and, in some cases, sand and salt for beachfront properties can wear out the furniture and wreak havoc. It is for this reason that patio furniture restoration becomes an essential part of property management. Restoring outdoor furniture is a green process, which saves money and also helps save the environment. Not only is this process green, but it’s also very cost effective and allows a unique opportunity to customize a community’s restoration and handpick from a large selection of metal finishes, fabrics, and color schemes. This selection includes hundreds of colors, patterns, and fabrics for slings, straps, and cushions, which allows a community association or property manager to select something they feel will fit with their already established décor, effectively creating an overall coordinated and polished look. The flexibility of powder coating makes it a great choice for any metal restoration project.

Is Your Property a Candidate for Restoration?

      Condominiums, country clubs, and HOAs with old and worn patio furniture should consider a powder coating restoration process instead of taking on the greater expense of furniture replacement. If the finish on the frames is still in great condition, then simply re-strapping or re-slinging is also an option. If your furniture is in good structural condition and only requires some minor welding repairs, then your furniture is a great candidate for restoration. You can completely update the look of your furniture and save your property a lot of money at the same time!
