Thatching, ridging and repairsWe undertake all aspects of thatching work, working in both water reed and combed wheat straw. We also work on new builds.
We ridge in flush and block styles, depending on the building and the preference of the customer.
We are also happy to undertake localised repairs, where decay (for example, caused by rainwater erosion in valleys) has occurred, or where damage has been caused by rodents or birds. Carrying out such repairs before the damage becomes too severe can considerably extend the life of your thatch.
Surveys and EstimatesAll of our estimates are free of charge and we provide you with a written record of any work that is required and its estimated costs.
We are also happy to provide full roof surveys at a nominal cost. If you require a full survey please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to visit your property and examine your roof.
After we have surveyed your roof we provide you with a detailed report. This is a written document unique to your property and can be used if you are selling the property or require insurance. The report will provide you with valuable information concerning the life expectancy of the thatch. We give estimated costs of any work required and our best estimates of time frames.
