Water Reed

Arguably the more the durable of the two options, water reed comes from countries that include Romania, Hungary, and Turkey. It is a heavy material used for centuries and is renowned for its durability. If installed professionally, water reed roof thatching, Wareham customers, can last for up to 45 years if sufficiently maintained.

Wheat Reed

The lighter of the two materials, wheat reed is a less durable material that tends to rot quicker. If professionally installed by our Wareham roof thatching team, a wheat reed roof will last up to 25 years with sufficient upkeep. But why would you choose it over water reed? Because some roofs can’t handle the heavy load imposed by water reed. Wheat reed is a great alternative and to the untrained eye, is virtually indistinguishable from water reed.

The type of reed will be determined by our team as part of our roof survey. This usually follows on from our initial discussion. Our findings will determine the price you’ll ultimately be charged which you’ll be informed of upon receipt of your FREE, no-obligation quote. If you decide to proceed, we’ll schedule a date and time to carry out the installation work.
