Our mission is to help educate on the value and importance of surface sustainability for interior finishes and advancements in our industry. We perform our services better than the competition by offering quality craftsmanship that exceeds the perceived standards of restorative cleaning, resurfacing and re-coating.
My dad and company founder, Pete Oechsner believes we all should be stewards of our planet. He was instrumental in the areas first recycling center through Horicon High School’s Ecology class in the spring of 1970, which coincides with the very first Earth Day.
In 1996, after years of manufacturing (he and my grandpa Francis Oechsner built a company called Sno-Bird Trailers out of Iron Ridge, Wisconsin), he started building Specialized Maintenance Service, LLC. Pete soon discovered a need for restoration and maintenance for aged/neglected commercial and industrial interior surfaces.
I joined the company in February of 2005. Now a father and son operation, we began transitioning into the field of stone, tile/grout restoration and care. I trained in this specialized field with professionals from Arizona and Minnesota and network with stone pros from around the nation. In 2010 we became certified applicators for ProCoat Products ceilings and walls restorative coatings.
After 6 years in the United States Navy and 4 years earning a bachelor’s degree in Communications, my brother Aaron joined SMS and our mission to sustain and maintain buildings by focusing his attention on raising awareness of the benefits of surface sustainability in buildings.
An exciting culture has been formed thanks in large part to the continued long lasting relationships with our partners and suppliers of eco-friendly products and materials. Together we’ve created some of the best recycling programs as far as reusing materials are concerned. Most of this tried and true technology and product is nothing new and has been around since the early 1980’s.
The advantage is we can sustain interior finish surfaces by restoring and maintaining them for another future generation, while drastically reducing the amount of material waste.
Our team and associate subcontractors have experience in construction, finish carpentry, project management and other specialty trades. Our projects range from our listed core services to commercial renovations, polished and decorative concrete options.
We are licensed and insured contractors, servicing all of Wisconsin, northern Illinois, eastern Minnesota, eastern Iowa and the UP of Michigan.
Through the years, we shaped our identity. We now know who we are and what we’re capable of (or not capable of). We are leaders in surface sustainability, yet we know our limits.
We’ll help you:
Specialized Maintenance Service can save you money. We are restoration experts and pride ourselves in the fact that we can offer our restoration packages at a fraction of the cost to companies who thought complete replacement was their only option. Replacement is very costly as you already know due to material costs, labor costs, electrical, HVAC costs and other unforeseen expenses that tend to arise during replacement. We can restore most surfaces to almost “better than new”. We believe this value paired with quality is what attracts business for us and we are grateful to work with some of the most respected companies in our market.
Cost-Effective. Time Efficient
Going green can have many benefits. The most common being the goal of qualifying your building for LEED credits. While that is a great reason to “go Green” we would like to take it a step further. Why spend twice the amount of money on new, when restoration can produce similar results without having to take down old material and fill up landfills? If our restoration process is a good fit for you, why pay more and waste more? Our intent is to help various companies and property managers with this very task, go green and stay green. We know there are times when certain restorations just will not fit with a remodeling project. Many companies have to update their infrastructure and we understand that. But if you don't, we can offer different options to help match your project’s goals. With so much material being wasted these days we firmly believe that restoration options are important to the condition of our planet.
