Excellent Service




We were in the process of buying an old cottage when the surveyor drew our attention to possible woodworm, so having been recommended Craft Preservation, we gave them a call.They were in the property within a couple of days and gave us a very quick report to say everything was fine.......and that was all done free of charge! How wonderful to find honest, efficient people who don't want to take advantage. Restores my faith in human nature. Anne Blair

Excellent job




We employed Craft Preservation to treat walls in our very old house for a serious damp problem. The company was really excellent from quote to completion. The men completed on time and were professional throughout. I highly recommend this company. Karen Harrison-White

Job Well Done




We employed Craft Preservation to carry out tanking and damproofing at our cottage in Oxfordshire. The outcome was totally successful. The men were professional, polite and extremely tidy. Work was completed on time and to a high standard. I would definitely use them again. Mr. and Mrs Williams.
