About

Below is a brief overview of our company but before we start, please see the photo below of two types of fungi. One is Dry Rot, one Plaster Fungus. Both very similar but one has the potential to be very damaging the other harmless.

To prevent costly mistakes, we recommend you ALWAYS use a qualified surveyor ( CSRT & CSSW )

We were established in 1974 and have loads of great online reviews.

We are members of the PROPERTY CARE ASSOCIATION
We are members of the Government endorsed TRUSTMARK Scheme

All our surveyors are salaried (ie they don't work on commission - negating the need to 'find' work to top up their income)

Our operatives/surveyors are CRB Checked. (Police checked)

We have our own in-house workforce so we have complete control on jobs. (However, we do use sub-contractors during periods of heavy workload and staff sickness)

Our office staff are also very highly trained to answer your questions.

What we do

  • Damp proofing and timber preservation services

    • Condensation and humidification control
  • More Services

    • remedial surveyors
    • cellar waterproofing
    • hoop iron

I had Shaw Preservations out to look at my damp at the end of last year. They charged me £90 to come out as I understand they don't do free surveys. They told me the dampness was caused by recent severe weather and told me to unblock my gutters and to wait and see if the wall dried out before calling them back which would then be free of charge. . The wall did dry out. Today I rang them as I am selling my property and the purchasers had a survey which said I had Dry Rot in my loft. Again they visited for £90 and tod me it was condensation mould due to a lack of air vents in the roof. Saved me a fortune and I can't thank them enough.

Absolutely outstanding job done. Shaw Preservations not only completed our damp proofing work according to instruction, on time and to an impeccable standard, but the staff both office based and on site, were very friendly, knowledgeable and, most importantly for us, looked after our home, keeping it clean and tidy throughout the work and keeping us safe in the knowledge that our home was in good hands. We have since recommended this company to relatives and would highly recommend them to anybody in need of damp proofing work.
