    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much to insure a thatched cottage?

    Insurance for Thatched Roofs can be costly, and you’ll need to get a master roof thatcher to come in to look at your Bedfordshire property to provide you a meaningful estimate. 

    How long does a thatched roof last?

    The lifespan of a thatched roof can vary. With proper maintenance and re-ridging, a thatched roof can last from anywhere between 15 and 40 years.  This does need regular maintenance though, and without it you’ll need to get your roof thatched again much sooner.

    How much does a thatched roof cost?

    Like most trades, the cost of a thatched roof will vary depending on the size of a job. Smaller properties with smaller roofs will be cheaper than larger properties. Whilst getting the initial roof thatching done can be costly (with Average prices going as high as £30,000), you also need to remember that you need to maintain the roof annually, and prices for this work can vary depending on what needs to be done.

    How long does it take to thatch a roof?

    On average it takes between three to four weeks to completely thatch your roof. Bigger projects will obviously take longer, but the main determining factor for how long it will take is the weather. Thatching jobs are best done during the summer months to minimise disruptions to the project.
