Great service and advice

Hugely pleased with the service that was provided. Came out on the same day of me calling up requesting a quote, checked the house over for me and found no real damp issues what so ever which of course was good news! Gave great advice for my flooring where the issue was and taken it all onboard. Many thanks again for the top service! Massively recommend to anyone.

I used owen preservations last december for damp proofing after a previous company had done a cowboys job of fitting a kitchen and plastering the walls of my mams house. Cannot fault the work phil carried out. Clean and tidy workers. Not suffered any further problems with crumbling plaster. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing was a problem and reasonably priced.

I gave Phil a call to discuss concerns I had about a potential rising damp issue in my home in Heaton. Phil was very helpful and provided a free telephone consultation, suggesting that from my description, my issue was likely the result of condensation, rather than rising damp. Phil gave me some very useful tips for reducing the moisture in my house without spending any money. Great service!

We had a woodworm problem in our bedroom. I called up and they were out within 2 days and the job completed the next week. Speedy and very efficient. I will say we had a quote which we were more than happy to pay but the job did not take as long as expected and we got 50.00 back! It is refreshing that there are still companies out there that do not take your eyes out. Good job more than satisfied thanks a lot x

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

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.

This is the third time I've used Owen preservation, the first being over 12 years ago. This time it was to treat dry rot in one of my properties in Newcastle. As always Phil was prompt, gave a written report via e-mail and carried out the work on schedule and on budget and provided a long term warranty. Over the years we have had bigger companies in who all seem less knowledgeable and certainly less efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend this firm.

I called Phil with a suspected dry rot problem. After having already received one quote from another company for £150, I wanted a second opinion. Phil came the same day (about 15 minutes after our phone conversation!) to look at the problem. He was extremely honest, offered free advice and as a result saved me a lot of money, as no work was necessary. While he was there he also looked at a few other concerns I had with my house and answered questions I put to him. I would not hesitate in recommending Phil to anyone who needed work doing, and if ever I need his services in the future, I will definitely contact him.

Did a great job on wall ties and repairing pointing for us: everything explained in simple terms, actively pointed out to us what we didn't need doing (where an unscrupulous trader could've added more to his job and upped the charge!) work carried out promptly and tidyily at a competitive price. Delighted, and would definitely employ Phil again!

Really Great Service

Prior to calling for a quote I did a quick internet search and called Owen Preservation on the basis of another review that said Phil is very honest and professional. Even in these hard times when it would be easy to charge me for a £200-300 damp proof job, I was given very accurate, straightforward and honest advice that largely revolved around 'self initiated' actions that could be achieved on my part. Hugely impressed to meet such an honest bloke who really knew his stuff and could communicate the problem in very plain english. Very happy to recommend as someone you can trust not to try and rip you off.
