The Best Thatch Roofer Dorset Can Get

Welcome to RV Miller – we’re the leading local specialists in thatching with more than five decades of experience to draw from. First founded all the way back in 1966, our company has gone from strength to strength since its establishment.

We’re a family-run company that’s equally known for unbeatable workmanship and customer service excellence. Therefore, we’re perfectly placed to be the only Dorset thatch roofer that you’ll ever need to hire!

The RV Miller team will be able to cater to any and all of your thatching needs. From small garden projects to massive barn conversions, our thatch roofer in Dorset will have you covered every step of the way. We use water and wheat reed for our projects and we’ve compiled the differences and benefits for you below.

Water Reed

This material has been used on roofs for centuries as it’s hard-wearing and durable. Our thatch roofer Dorset can hire utilises water reed that’s been imported from Turkey, Romania or Hungary. This type of roof should last in excess of 25 years and with proper maintenance, even up to 45.

Wheat Reed from Our Dorset Thatch Roofer

Same as water reed, wheat reed also has a long history. Overall, it’s somewhat less durable than water reed as it tends to rot more quickly. It can last anywhere from 15 to 25 years and the aesthetic between the two materials is very similar – almost identical to the untrained eye.
