Preservation Director Susan Keeny works with many homeowners and specialty contractors to address all types of home repairs. Schedule a visit to have our team look at retaining walls, water leaks, masonry, unsiding a house, porch maintenance and other aging home issues. Here's an example of one homeowner who had a unique wood attic window issue that required complete restoration.

Another Satisfied Homeowner

A Homeowner's Comment: “Tim finished our attic window and we couldn't be more pleased! It's such an upgrade and a huge relief to me to have the storm frame which split the window sashes gone. Thanks again for the connection and the Home Preservation Program. I will definitely be in touch with any additional questions and we are hoping to have Tim do some more window work in the future.
