Only the best

Our company policy is that any customer that trusts us enough to handle so important a job as preserving the structural integrity of their own home deserves nothing less than the very best, both in terms of product and service.

Branded products

No matter what sort of preservation work you hire us to complete – woodworm, rising damp, basement waterproofing, or installing a damp proof course – we only ever use top quality materials and equipment from some of the industry’s most respected brands.

These include Triton Systems and Safeguard, from whom we get our waterproofing, damp proofing, and timber preservation products, as well as Nuaire, who provide us with cutting-edge fan and ventilation systems.

A first rate team

Whilst the quality of our equipment and materials is second to none, it is nothing compared to the high standards delivered and maintained by our resident team of expert preservation engineers. Highly-trained professionals, with decades of experience between them, they take great satisfaction in delivering the high standard of work that C and L Preservation Ltd have become renowned for across the Rayleigh area.


All your timber preservation needs

No matter what our Rayleigh customers need in terms of timber preservation, we have the tools and the knowledge to help them.

Damp Proofing

Damp is the most common – and most damaging – structural concern in domestic buildings. To prevent the ingress of moisture into your home, we apply damp proofing to your walls and floors.


There’s nothing more attractive to woodworm than damp timber. We take a two-pronged approach – eliminating the existing infestation, and also investigating the reasons for it taking hold in the first place.

Basement Waterproofing & Tanking

Basements tend to attract unwanted water both by being constructed below the water table and being naturally prone to condensation. By waterproofing and tanking your basement, you can eliminate this damp and effectively extend the size of your house at the same time!

Rising Damp

Rising damp occurs when groundwater travels up through capillaries in porous building materials like mortar, brick, and – of course – timber. There are several ways to treat it, and our team is there to help you choose the most effective for you.

Here when you need us

Trading from our main office in nearby Rochford, we are a company that understands the local area, particularly the Essex climate and how it affects traditional and modern timber structures. Much of our reputation for excellence among the people of Rayleigh is down to our expert local knowledge.
