Our Story

Founded in 1999, Streetlight Restoration Specialists, Inc. pioneered this niche industry, having been issued the first D64 “Lightpole Restoration” license ever issued by the CSLB. Our past and current clientele includes local, state and federal government agencies. We are proud of the intelligent and cost saving frugality our services provide by restoring and preserving your existing light standards.


Our Approach

We preserve and restore, rather than replace.  In most cases, we can restore a streetlight to where it looks as good as the day it came out of the factory, for far less money than it would cost to replace.  The majority of poles can be repaired in place, without ever taking a pole down.  In cases where poles are taken down, they are almost always put right back up, the very same day, eliminating the need for costly temporary lighting.   This also allows cities to maintain the historical authenticity of the streetlights, preserving their beauty for younger generations for years to come.  Much of our work can be done at night, minimizing the disturbance to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Meet the Team

Brian Moran and Paul Larson met in 1987 and quickly became friends.  They worked together in the concrete industry.  Paul stayed in the general construction arena as a General Contractor.  Brian worked in the paint and powder coating industry, working on new streetlight poles.  Brian's love of antiques and anything old combined with Paul's knowledge of the construction industry, ended up being the foundation for our company today.  We started working on parking lot lightpoles and then extended our services into streetlights and traffic signal poles.  Since the year 1999 we have completed project for cities throughout the state of California.
