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

A Property Damp concern
Customer Service

We have a small toilet under our staircase and damp had risen a little up the walls in the small room. The room needed updating and improvement but there was no point in doing such if the damp was ruin the work shortly after. We turned to Shaw Preservations Ltd. They were simply excellent. Turned up on time detailed all the work that needed to be done. Advised on points raised then carried out the works very fast and well. Very clean and tidy and the best bit is the guarantee for the works which is backed up by an insurance they hold even if they ceased trading. A superb company who knows what its doing and does it well.

Shaw initially surveyed our house prior to purchasing it. This was carried out professionally and all information was shared with us promptly. It helped us gauge how much work there was to do in the house and impacted the final cost of the property positively. The work was rescheduled a couple times, by us, and Shaw were happy to go with these changes. The work then begun and was completed very promptly and in the agreed budget. Where they fell short at times was their promptness in communication (make sure you yourself respond to the correct email addresses as some are only part time staff) and the clarity of the information (i felt at times there was contradictory information). In our individual experience, we had a communication breakdown and unclear expectations of what to expect on the arrival of tradesmen to the house (in one instance we had a huge delivery truck dropping off sand and supplies which caused some minor chaos on our small road, we could have advised against this, but we were never made aware of what to expect). At the time, I attempted immediate response from Shaw's office but to no prevail; they never responded to these concerns. Overall, Shaw are a great company and I would recommend them, just some communication issues when they are needed promptly.

This is the second time we have used Shaws for damp proofing work in our very old house. They are just as professional today as they were 30 yrs ago, so have no hesitation in recommending them. The team were clean and tidy and very polite and courteous.

This company honored my loyalty and carried out damp proofing work at very short notice. Work to be carried out was clearly explained to me and all was left clean and tidy. I was kept informed of progress along the way. There was a slight hiccough with electrician but that was dealt with immediately.

I used this company after having several others out. They weren't the cheapest or the most expensive but the quality of work is excellent. I chose them as they were so friendly, explained everything & have been around a long time.
