Thankyou Hampshire Building for the excellent works on two of our properties.
(Reviewed September 2021)
Alan gave extremely good, useful service.
He answered all questions and we now feel empowered to make changes to improve our condensation problem. (Reviewed August 2021)
Extremely happy with the service that Alan provided from initial quote, to answering questions to the actual carrying out of the work.
Alan was very tidy and cleared all the rubbish away.
His quote was fair and reasonable - we'd been quoted a very substantial sum by another company.
Alan was very courteous, trustworthy and prompt. He worked very hard during the hot weather completing the job when he said he would.
Very pleased to recommend him and his company. (Reviewed July 2021)
Excellent communication, quality and professionalism. (Reviewed July 2021)

My Southsea mid-terrace downstairs wooden floor had gone bouncy and squeaky in places.
Alan installed several new joists/supports and the floor is now solid, and Alan also applied woodworm prevention spray as there was evidence of woodworms. This has 10 year guarantee.
Alan explained what he was doing each step of the way. The floor is solid now and I'm very happy. Thanks! (Reviewed May 2021)

Excellent service from start to finish (Reviewed April 2021)
This was for inspection of Damp -
1st Quote by a different company- said there was rising damp and quoted for that
2nd quote -Hampshire-their quote was for poor condensation in the house and he listed all the items needed to rectify the problem - all the corrective actions we can do ourselves - Hampshire did not do any work but we are well pleased with the quote that it was not a big job and an honest quote (Reviewed March 2021)
Excellent workmanship, explained what he was doing as he went, and tried hard to minimise the mess of removing plaster from walls. Highly recommended. I would use again without hesitation. (Reviewed January 2021)
I needed a small job done: to brick up an old flue. Alan provided a quote very quickly, fixed a date within a week, and answered all my questions comprehensively. On the day itself, he was careful to check if I was happy with the colour of the bricks before getting on with the job. Now the wall looks great. (Reviewed January 2021)
Very Professional service carried out. (Reviewed January 2021)
Very knowledgeable and professional service. Damp treatment carried out as quoted and to a very high standard. (Reviewed January 2021)
Mr Patrick carried out this work together with several other areas of similar work on the property with skill, care and promptness. The building concerned is a new extension to a Listed Building having necessarily complex links and abutments. Mr Patrick co-operated well with the Architect and the site manger to ensure the most appropriate damp control solution at each affected point.
I would not hesitate to engage Mr Patrick for future work in equally demanding conditions. (Reviewed January 2021)
Our front room needed a new damp-course around the bay and a couple of walls, which Alan finished with skimming all the way up to the picture rails. The work was carried out with very little disruption and everything was kept so clean and tidy. The finish is beautiful.
The property also required all of it's wall-ties to be replaced, which again has all been sorted without any issue. The pointing has been filled in so well and there was nothing that we needed to clean up afterwards.
Alan really knows his stuff and has been great from start to end. His advice has been so helpful and considered, and his level of workmanship and courtesy is brilliant too. It definitely felt as though the house was in safe hands! (Reviewed December 2020)
Hampshire Building Preservation LTD were able to come out to my property the very next day and arrived on time for the wall tie inspection.
When they arrived they were very informative, taking the time to explain the possible issues and why these would be causing problems.
When it came to the inspection, they drilled into the wall to identify if there was an issue and talked me through what they found.
I found them to be very informative and helpful, I would definitely use them again and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. (Reviewed November 2020)
From the outset, you have been professional, courteous & patient.
We can't thank you enough for all your continued support & above all your time & expertise. (Reviewed November 2020)

Was punctual, arrived in an unmarked vehicle, was courteous and very thorough and professional throughout.
He was patient during my constant question and answer sessions. On his departure and after his report we felt more confident in tackling our issues.
He provided numerous solutions from free common sense, life style changing approaches, to many low - high budget applications without the usual hard sell or pressure. I would recommend this company to family and friends anytime. (Reviewed January 2020)

Alan from Hampshire Building Preservation Ltd came round to advise me on a small damp problem in a property I have tenants in. The two areas od concern were the front bay window and the floor under the washing machine. Firstly Alan himself was very presentable. He took readings and measurements and explained in layman terms the issues that were causing the dampness. After I received a reasonable quote I have had him round to fix the flooring and after the was dealt with perfectly, I will be getting them back to deal with the larger problem of the bay window. (Reviewed November 2018)
Hampshire Building Preservation Ltd carried out some damp work at the beginning of September 2018 at my house in Southsea. They cut away back to the brickwork, injected a damp course, cleared the cavity & made good the work they did. Mr Patrick came to my address before hand to see what the problem was & suggested the best course of action & gave me a quote for the work to be done. The whole job was done in a professional efficient manner by two friendly & courteous workers. (Reviewed November 2018)
