THE IMPORTANCE OF
Thatched Roof Maintenance Services
A thatched roof requires attention and periodical maintenance whether your home is a period property or a modern property, otherwise it may lose its charm and even become a costly renovation. Try to prevent problems such as vermin or rot that could shorten the life of your roof. Thatched houses provide a warm environment for many different animals resulting in damage to the roof costing money to repair.  By inspecting your roof, you will be able to determine the roofs condition as defects are easy to spot, for example, exposed fixings on the roof show that the thatch has reached the end of its life.

A professional Thatcher will be needed even for small repairs. The thatch may be leaking if dark wet patches appear on the eaves close to the wall, while heavy moss could prevent the thatch from drying out properly and is therefore unable to breathe. The main cause for damages on thatched roofs are Algae, moss and Fungi, causing premature ageing.
