PLAD Timber and Damp Proofing was formed in 1969, providing specialist damp proofing and timber treatment services for all types of properties, and rapidly establishing a reputation for quality, service and professionalism.

In 2006, the company was purchased by Prestec, a well-respected name within the field of construction, structural repair and refurbishment. The two companies shared much in common, not least as the founder of each had trained together in the late 1950s.

The buyout allied PLAD with a highly successful local name, enabling the business to expand steadily, extending its customer reach and building a portfolio of proven results.

In November 2016, PLAD joined forces with Marston Timber Preservation, both family-run businesses, whose founding partners originally trained together in the 1960s. With 80 years’ joint experience and bases to the north and south of Birmingham, the new venture has placed the business, renamed as M&P Preservation, at the forefront of timber preservation in the Midlands.

Committed to the same traditional values of integrity, service and quality workmanship that built both companies over the years, M&P Preservation is in an excellent position to move forward, extend recognition in the marketplace and achieve strategic growth over the next five years. The future looks very exciting.
