List of


Every roof is different. Mike will offer his expert opinion on the best method and materials to use before stripping, preparing then rethatching your traditional roof.

New buildings can be thatched using modern tools and techniques. Thatch is very accommodating and will adapt to many different roof designs to create a beautiful roof.

Ridges wear over time so will need to be repaired and/or replaced. A ridge should last 8 – 12 years before it needs replacing. During this process it is good practice to check the whole roof for serviceability.

Sometimes a roof may get storm damaged, bird damage, or just wear a little under a chimney. Keeping on top of these small maintenance jobs helps prevent extensive, more expensive repairs later on.
