    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much to insure a thatched cottage?
    The cost of insuring a thatched roof can vary based on its age, location, and materials used. Regular maintenance and re-ridging can extend the roof's life and lower insurance costs. Seek advice from a qualified thatching expert for guidance on maintenance and to minimise the risk of damage and potential insurance claims. Working with an expert can protect your investment and maintain your roof's longevity.
    How long does a thatched roof last?
    Regular maintenance and re-ridging are crucial for extending the life of a thatched roof, which can last from 15 to 40 years depending on the materials and maintenance. Neglecting upkeep can result in premature wear and tear, leading to increased costs and inconvenience. Trusting a professional thatching service like Simply Thatch to conduct routine inspections and maintenance can minimise damage and reduce insurance claims, ultimately saving money in the long run.
    How much does a thatched roof cost?
    Thatched roof installation costs can vary based on factors such as property size and type of thatch, with water reed being more expensive than straw. A complete installation can cost up to £30,000. Regular maintenance is crucial for the roof's longevity, as neglect can lead to premature wear and costly repairs or replacement. Maintenance costs depend on the extent of repairs, and seeking guidance from a master thatcher for an accurate estimate is recommended. By investing in maintenance, unexpected costs can be avoided, and the roof's longevity can be ensured.
    How long does it take to thatch a roof?

    Installing a thatched roof can take several weeks, with larger projects taking even longer, but the timeline can be impacted by various factors, including weather conditions. Scheduling the project during the summer months when weather is stable can help minimise disruptions. Heavy rain, snow, or high winds should also be considered, as they can cause significant delays, potentially halting the thatching process. Working with a reputable and experienced thatching company like Simply Thatch is essential for managing the process, minimising disruptions, and ensuring timely completion. They can also provide updates and communicate potential delays resulting from unforeseen circumstances, including weather conditions.
