Autumn 2008 thatching in Norfolk reed / water reed, but in a traditional Wiltshire wheat straw style.
I have a thatched cottage in bowerchalke, I had a few concerns with the condition of the roof. I made contact with Simon and he got back on the same day to arrange and appointment. I was concerned that the roof needed a complete rethatch. However, after speaking to Simon he assured me that it was not necessary to rethatch but instead it just needed re-ridging, cleaning up and tightening down the coat work. Simon carried out the re-ridging with great effieciency and reassured me throughout the job and gave explanations on what he was doing and why. Great craftmanship and extremly knowledgable about his trade.
Simon is a very professional and knowledgable man on the trade of thatching. He came and completed some repairs on our roof which was norfolk reed. We found this a relief as previous thatchers who we contacted said they could not work with this type of material.
Simon came and rethatched the north side of my roof. I found his knowledge and workmanship to be a great relief. This if my first time having my roof re-thatched, I was amazed with the ammount of work and materials involved to re-thatch a roof. extremly good job and well priced. Suprised with the thickness of the rethatch simon has done.
