“Signal is honored to acquire such a strong company with extensive property restoration experience,” said Signal Restoration Services CEO Mark Davis. “I have known Sentinel owner John Lonergan for almost a decade and have always respected his company’s high level of customer service and integrity. They have a reputation for delivering. This is a major move for Signal in the New York market and beyond.”

We are looking forward to serving our loyal customers in a greater number of markets with a wider range of services due to Signal’s national footprint and large loss operations team.”

The terms of the deal are undisclosed. Lonergan will stay on as managing director of Sentinel Group and will become a minority shareholder of Signal Restoration Services.
