Different Types of Thatched Roof

There are a few different types of thatching materials used in the thatching industry, all of them have advantages and disadvantages.

Reed Roof Thatching

Reed thatching is a popular choice for properties new and old, due to its durability compared to other thatching materials and its long life. Reed roofs are one of the types of thatched roof in the UK, meaning we have plenty of experience working with them. Reed thatching lasts for well over 20 years if properly cared for, even longer times can be achieved with regular maintenance.

Long Straw Thatching

Long straw thatching is often used on older historical buildings, which are more than often listed. This type of thatching is trickier than most and therefore they are often refused by other thatching companies. We have plenty of experience with long straw thatching and historical buildings, so if you have a listed building then contact us and we’ll se what we can do.

Straw Roof Thatching

Straw thatched properties have been a traditional feature of the UK countryside for many years. These roofs have a picturesque appearance with makes them attractive and very popular. As well as this aesthetically appealing appearance, straw roof thatching is waterproof and insulates effectively against cold weather. UV protection is also provided in the summer months.
