What is Involved

in the Consultation?

As a part of our service, we will perform a thorough examination of the specific thatched roof to determine the required work. Throughout the project, we are available to provide our expert guidance, addressing any questions you may encounter. Our assessment goes beyond the surface appearance of the thatched roof, encompassing an evaluation of its overall condition before reaching our conclusions.

Looking to Insure a

Thatched Property?

Getting insurance on a thatched roof property can be tricky, some insurance companies view thatched roofs as an additional risk to the property in question. An easy way of getting or reducing your insurance is to have your roof assessed by a qualified thatch inspector. We can advise you on any insurance queries you may have throughout the inspection.

Buying a Thatched

Property for the

First Time?

Purchasing a property with a thatched roof for the first time can be a daunting task. There are a few factors to consider when buying a property with a thatched roof over a conventional roof. Getting a full inspection of the roof will give you an idea of the lifespan of the roof, identifying any potential issues and maintenance required. This will also help you with insuring the property once you’ve made the purchase.

What Maintenance

is Required?

Thatched roofs require maintenance to keep them in top condition and to prevent little issues from becoming bigger problems. The maintenance required for your thatched roof will be shown on the inspection report you receive. This will make you aware of the maintenance needed and any costs likely to be incurred. Reridging and moss removal are just two examples of the maintenance needed on a thatched roof.

How Do I Prevent

Pest Damage?

Rats and birds are common pests which can cause damage to a thatched roof. This damage will show up on your thatched roof inspection. Issues which could cause rats can also be identified in the inspection before they turn into a bigger problem. Gaps between the thatch and the roof structure, holes and damage to the thatch are all issues which could encourage rats and other pests.

What is

Re-Ridging a Roof?

The ridge of the roof is the most exposed part to the elements and it’s recommended to replace it every 10 years to keep your roof in top condition. A thatched roof inspection will identify any issues which could lead to a ridge replacement and we are on hand to offer any advice you may need. If your roof has more damage then a full replacement might be needed instead.
