Join the Professional Services Directory

When historic property owners hire a professional for maintenance, repair, or construction—anything from fixing a leaky faucet to designing a new addition—many consult our professional services directory to find the right services and expertise.

As you know, older buildings can have special needs. We want to make sure that these structures receive the highest level of care so that we all can continue to enjoy and learn from them for generations to come.

That’s where you come in. Advertising your services in the Conservancy's professional services directory will connect you with property owners looking for the person or firm to get the job done without compromising historic integrity.

While many of the Conservancy's preservation battles are fought over high-profile buildings, there are hundreds of thousands of historic structures throughout the region—some grand and some humble—that undergo more routine battles requiring the special touch of someone who understands the importance of working with a building’s character.

If you have the special knowledge and skills that these jobs require, we encourage you to advertise in the directory. For just $120 per year, you can share your expertise with owners throughout Greater Los Angeles looking to hire professionals who can work on projects running the gamut from routine maintenance to major construction.
