The most important part of maintaining your thatched roof is to replace the ridge every 10 years. The ridge is what holds your roof together and acts as a fixing. Over time, the elements may cause the ridge to come out of place or become loose. Our North Dorset thatchers can carefully replace your ridge with a new one to ensure the longevity of your roof. We will usually cover the ridge with netting which stops birds and other animals from damaging it.
Our thatchers North Dorset service provides a number of different repairs for thatched roofs. If your roof has become worn or has incurred damage from extreme weather, then our thatchers in North Dorset will be happy to find the solution to your problem.
If your roof has lines and dips across the main structure, this could indicate wear and tear. This is better to be repaired before the damage becomes more extensive. You may also require repairs if your roof has developed moss growth, in which case our thatchers North Dorset team will assess the best course of action to repair the roof.
Our thatchers in North Dorset can also carry out patching work as long as we consider the roof save for repair. In some extreme cases, your roof may require completely re-thatching.
