Do not honour warranty on work carried out.




When damp returned on my partner's home would not answer txts calls or emails after promising to call out and rectify.

Shocking experience




Shocking company, moved into new home under warranty from Owen Preservation. Contacted and sent pictures regarding the damp issue from walls they had supposedly 'damp proofed'. I received very little if any response for 2 months as well as abuse when I rang twice in the space of two days after no response for weeks. Shocking company, shocking service, would not recommend use this sham of business. AVOID

Damp proof work




Ten years ago I used this firm to install a damp proof course in my house and found them to be a very reliable ,honest and professional company. I have moved to a ground floor apartment and I contacted this firm to come and investigate a potential damp problem .Phil the owner arrived the next day and very honestly informed me there was no damp just condensation issues on which he offered useful guidelines for no charge at all unlike many other companies A brilliant service and I highly recommend anyone with damp or preservation issues to use them

Owen Preservation helped us with a damp problem back in September 2012. We intended to write a review at the time - and then forgot! However, it might be useful for others to know that, 18 months later, we have have had no recurrence of our damp problem. Mr Owen provided us with helpful and detailed advice, followed up promptly with a very reasonable quote. He and his colleague spent several days at our property, carrying out the work. Throughout, they were hardworking and courteous, keeping us updated at all times. We were very pleased with the standard of work, the price and the service. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company.

Phil was very prompt coming to assess the job, then again to carry the work out. All work was started & completed when he said it would be, and was done with minimal disruption & mess. Phil himself was friendly and happy to talk me through any aspects I didn't understand. Overall I would definitely recommend using Owen Preservation. Michael Prudham, South Shields
