I really can't praise this company highly enough. In a time when the world seems to be falling apart and you can't find a company you can "Trust" along comes John! Assesses the damp problem in my son's house and tell us how to put it right. No pressure, no tactics, no blagging. Totally honest and open. He takes time to explain what is causing the problem and how to remedy it. He was so good I wish it had been more serious so I could give him and his company the job. Honestly, it's very rare to meet someone who can be so Professional, Helpful and Honest. I couldn't recommend these people more highly. Hugely impressed!

Just want to take a moment to say how great this company is. They dealt with my Enquiry very promptly & also promised what they said. I needed the wall ties work completing & bar preservation came out for the inspection when promised & work was carried out to an excellent standard. Nothing was too much hard work. If you need a great company to do some work on your house, don't hesitate to call bar preservation. Will be using you again for future but to let purchases also.

I used Bar Preservation recently (June 2014) due to a issue with damp, The Surveyor came out and was very professional and gave me very good advice and went through the process of rectifying the issue, he gave me 2 quotes one for the main issue and some additional work that I pointed out to him. The workmen came out on time and did an excellent job, they were professional and went though what they had done. They were friendly and cleaned up. I would have no hesitation on recommending them

Whilst storing some items in the loft I noticed some white powdery deposits on some of my roof timbers, fearing the worst I contacted BAR Preservation and asked them to carry out an inspection. The surveyor arrived on time and carried out a thorough inspection. There was a charge for this but at no time was I put under any pressure to have any work done, he just advised as to what would be appropriate. He also went on to recommend that some extra ventilation would help the problem from re-occuring. he also pointed out that one of the roof joists had slipped and could do with reattaching. He then sent me a full report in the post along with quotations for carrying out the works which I accepted. The work carried out (again arriving exactly as arranged). It's so refreshing to find a firm that does what they say they will and turns up on time.

Totally impressed! The surveyor was very professional and "HONEST". He explained that I didn't need a new damp course, the path at the side of the house was too high and suggested a simple remedy. I was totally impressed and would definitley use them in the future if needed and based on my experience would recommend them without hesitation. No call out fee either. Wow!!!!!

I used this firm and found them to be professional, helpful and (so far as I as a lay person can tell) competent. The surveyor was clear and convincing in describing what needed to be done. There was no hint of sales pressure. The man who came to do the work was tidy, courteous and unfussy - the sort of person you would be happy to have in your house.

Damp appeared in a ground floor bay. I asked BAR to perform an inspection and provide a quotation. There is a charge of £35+VAT, which is deducted from the cost of any work done. I had made several calls to other traders and realised that the charge is normal practice, though it does vary. The inspector was knowledgeable. friendly and willing to listen to my thoughts on the problem and solution. A written report arrived with a few days together with quotes for each part of the job. I decided to do the external work myself and asked BAR to attend to the internal work, costing £525+VAT. This was performed over two 0.5 days to allow the base plaster coat to dry. Joist timbers and floorboards were replaced (entirely even though only a couple of timbers appeared rotten at first) with treated wood and capped at the external wall entry. Wall injected with DPC and final coat of plaster applied. Left site clean and tidy. 20 year guaranteee.
