VENDOR SPOTLIGHT Preserve Services Your One-Stop Partner in Property Maintenance by Peter Golden I t is the first, fine day of spring and Preserve Services, known for its solid craft skills and personal touch, is on the job at Pegan Brook Condominium in historic Natick, Mass. High above the green quadrangle of turf at the center of this neatly laid-out community association, craftsmen are carefully installing weather-resistant Quality, Service and Affordability Sean O’Connor, Preserve Services’ president, and the teams of craftsmen he sends into the field every day convey those all-too-rare qualities of skill and dependability that community association managers and trustees look for. O’Connor holds a Massachusetts Preserve Services maintenance project at Pegan Brook Condominium included exterior painting, and replacement of siding, trim, windows and doors.

Preserve Services is also fully insured and bonded. “How do you make quality tangible?” asks O’Connor, in a discussion of the values he seeks to uphold through Preserve Services, which is located in Salem, Mass., and has been serving community association clients throughout Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire for close to 20 years. “My answer is simple,” says O’Connor, “use the best materials the budget allows and work as smart and as well as you can.

For condominiums where capital improvements are in order, Preserve Services can create an “all at once” program or a planned maintenance schedule across a predetermined span of time. At Pegan Brook, for instance, plans call for complete exterior repainting of the complex’s colonial townhouses, along with all of the trim, molding and siding replacement.
