    How much does a thatched roof cost?

    The cost of installing a thatched roof can vary depending on the size and complexity of the job. Smaller properties with smaller roofs will generally be cheaper than larger properties. The cost of initial installation can be significant, with average prices reaching as high as £30,000.

    How long does it take to thatch a roof?
