New Thatch

New projects using thatch are not as rare as you might think. Many new building projects are turning to traditional using thatch for it's insulation, weatherproofing and green credentials.

Thatch is often viewed as an expensive option, but long term thatch can be a cost effective and appealing solution for many roofing requirements.

Replacing existing thatch

Removing old thatch and replacing it with new material is the mainstay of the thatching business.

James Raisen, uses only the best and most appropriate materials and is used to working alongside planners, environmental and local authority building inspectors to ensure that your new thatch follows traditional methods and materials lasts a long time and, most importantly, keeps the weather out.

Repairs and refinishing

Thatch can last for many years. When it starts to look old and tired it may not be the case that the whole thatch needs to be replaced.

Often older thatch may benefit from a new ridge, refinishing and other preventative measures that can prolong the life and improve the appearance of your thatched roof whilst keeping maintenance costs to a minimum.
