The best thatching in Dorset  Thatched Roofing Dorset

Thatching is a specialist trade, and it’s generally the case that thatchers train as apprentices for around five years before qualifying. Founder Rod Miller trained in the 1960’s and established RV Miller in 1966. We’re now one of the largest thatching companies in the UK.

Our qualified workers and apprentices trained under the auspices of the National Society of Master Thatchers Apprenticeship Scheme to ensure all essential knowledge and skills pass down to future generations. We’re proud of the quality of workmanship we provide and happy to quote for thatched roofing in Dorset and its surrounds.

Types of Thatch

At RV Miller, we provide wheat reed or water reed thatching, with water reed providing greater durability and a lifespan between 25 and 45 years. Wheat reed thatch will last from 15 to 25 years as it is not as long-lasting as water reed.

Thatched roofs bear the brunt of bad weather and often need repairing. Luckily, we provide a comprehensive repairs service tailored to Dorset thatch roofs.

Regular maintenance of your thatched roof allows you to take advantage of the longer life span and avoid replacing your thatch roof for as long as possible. We also provide a waterproofing spray service for thatched roofs in Dorset. This is a new product which reduces opportunities for the growth of moulds and algae and adds a water-repellent coating to your thatch.
