A thatched roof is a beautiful addition to any property and can really complete the aesthetic feel of your country home. Thatched roofs have many benefits and can be a worthwhile investment providing they are cared for properly. The benefits of a thatched roof include:

  • Natural insulation
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Utilises loft space
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Water resistant
  • Adds value to your property

Depending on the type of thatched roof you have, it can last anywhere between 20 and 60 years when it is maintained to a high standard. However, it is possible that extreme weather or other circumstances may damage your roof. Our thatchers in North Dorset have a wealth of experience in the repair and maintenance of thatched roofs and offer affordable and comprehensive services.

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.

Water repellent coating

Our thatchers in North Dorset can now offer you a water repellent coating which will preserve your roof for a longer period of time. This Nano technology provides a protective barrier against mould, moisture absorption, growth of moss and algae, rotting and discolouration.

This product is water-based and 100% organic, non-flammable and non-toxic, making it a great solution to keeping your thatched roof looking new for longer. To find out more about this product, click here.
