At RV Miller, we know a thing or two when it comes to providing the very best thatched roofs Dorset has experienced. If your roof is leaking or falling apart, the chances are that it is either breaking down through wear and tear or was poorly thatched to begin with. There is nothing more frustrating than a having a thatched roof that is failing. Fortunately, RV Miller are the finest solution there is.


Our company is with without a doubt the leading specialists when it comes to thatching. When you call us up, we can provide you with honest and impartial advice and inspect your thatched roofs in Dorset to determine their condition. With on-the-spot quotes, you are always in control and we can recommend the best materials to suit your budget and requirements.

Historically, both wheat and water reed are the most commonly used materials for thatching. While aesthetically they are the same, wheat reed is far lighter. This makes it ideal for homes with older roof bases that cannot support the heavier weight of water reed. While the trade off is less durability, a properly maintained roof constructed from either material will last for years to come.


At RV Miller, we don’t just install thatching; we can also provide on-going repairs for your Dorset thatched roof. As with everything, thatching will breakdown over time and can also be damaged by factors such as wildlife, damp, and poor weather.

  • Deteriorating lead and cement flashings
  • Dips in the roof itself
  • Lines appearing across the main coat work
  • Presence of moss
  • Visible ridging wire to name just a few examples
