Remedial damp treatment in our hall
Excellent all round service from Shaw Preservations who we have used on two occasions. Very professional yet personable company whose works are to the highest standard. I would recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate situation of needing remedial damp works done.
I can't comment on the quality of the work because I'm not expert. Looks OK to me. I can, however comment on the quality of communications which was awful. I had to ask them if they were going to actually do the work having not confirmed it before they started. Took longer than it should have because the plasterer was called away to another job. When I emailed to ask what time the chippy was coming tomorrow they said that he wasn't because he was sick. I have no idea if they were going to bother to tell me that or let me sit in all day waiting. I made a polite complaint and received a...
Removal of old plaster back to brick works, the re waterproof plastered, floor sealed and chemical damp-course
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 so if the damp was too ruin the work shortly after. We turned to Shaw Preservation 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 have ceased trading. A superb company.
Very polite man came on time explained what he was going to do how long it would roughly take. Would highly recommend this very polite and efficient company.
Overall the main problem Shaw Preservation have is lack of communication with their customers. Taking current Covid situation into account this remains a huge problem. Cost of work was, in my opinion, excessive.

Damp treatment and plastering
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...
