    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much to insure a thatched cottage?

    The cost of insurance for thatched roofs may vary depending on several factors, including the roof's age, location, and materials used. Maintaining and re-ridging your thatched roof regularly can help prolong its lifespan and potentially lower insurance costs over time. Consulting with a qualified and experienced thatching professional is recommended for advice and estimates on insurance and maintenance expenses for your thatched roof.

    How long does a thatched roof last?

    Regular maintenance and re-ridging are critical factors that can significantly affect the lifespan of a thatched roof. Typically, a well-maintained thatched roof can last anywhere between 15 to 40 years. However, it's important to keep in mind that regular maintenance is essential to ensure that your roof stays in good condition and prolongs its lifespan. Failure to perform proper maintenance can lead to premature wear and tear, which may result in the need for thatching sooner than anticipated.

    How much does a thatched roof cost?

    The price of a thatched roof installation can be influenced by the scale of the project. Typically, smaller properties with smaller roofs tend to be less costly than larger ones. The cost of initial thatching can be significant, with average prices reaching up to £30,000. It is crucial to keep in mind that routine maintenance is also necessary to preserve the roof's lifespan. The cost of maintenance work may differ depending on the amount of repair needed, making it important to seek guidance from a master roof thatcher to receive an accurate estimate.

    How long does it take to thatch a roof?

    The duration of a thatched roof installation typically ranges from three to four weeks. However, larger projects may require a longer timeline to complete. Adverse weather conditions can affect the project's duration, so it is recommended to plan the thatching job during the summer months when weather conditions are more stable, minimising disruptions to the project. Rain, snow, or high winds can slow down the thatching process, so it is crucial to take these factors into account when planning a thatching project.
