Thatched Roof Re-Ridging

We offer expert thatched roof re-ridging services for roofs made with reed and straw. The lifespan of your roof will depend on how well maintained it is. No matter how well thatched a roof is, it will always require thatch roof maintenance over a period of time as it is one of the most important areas to maintain on your roof. The ridge is located on the top of your roof so it will be subject to all types of weather and will therefore need replacing every few years.

Why Do You Need To Re-ridge?

Your roofs ridge is the most exposed part of the roof to the elements. It takes the brunt of the weather and is the part that gets the most damaged. That’s why every 10 years or so you’ll need to replace the ridge of your thatched roof.

If you’re unsure if you need to replace your ridge then speak to our experts and get them to come and take a look.

Maintaining Your Thatched Roof Ridge – Advice

While we recommend arranging roof ridge repair every decade, there are a few things you can be doing to prolong its lifespan:

  • Ensure that your roof it is well ventilated. If your roof is able to dry out properly after rainfall, it will prevent the likelihood of moss and algae growth under the ridge.
  • If you are having other work done on your property, do not allow traders to damage the thatch with ladders, tools, or walking on the coat-work. Divots accelerate thatch degradation and should be avoided.
