Our Wiltshire thatching services


Thatched roofs are a charming feature of many cottages, houses, and barns, but an expert service such as R. V. Miller can give it that extra special look. With over 40 years’ thatching experience, we are one of the most established thatchers in Wiltshire. Whether you need us to rethatch your roof, or create a new thatched roof from scratch, we can cater to your requirements.


When a thatched roof is not looked after, it not only looks unkempt but can also affect the structure of your Wiltshire property. We are qualified to carry out regular inspections and repairs to keep your Wiltshire thatched roof in the best condition. When a repair is completed by a professional, it can add years to the lifespan of your roof.


Ridging is a key part of maintaining your Wiltshire thatched roof, and it should be replaced around every 10 years to keep your roof strong. It is available in a range of styles, so you can choose a finish that suits your preferences. Our experienced thatchers offer all types of thatch ridging, including:

  • Plain flush Thatching in Wiltshire
  • Block
  • Ornate
  • Wrap-over
  • Butt up

Why choose our thatching for your Wiltshire property?

At R. V. Miller, we are proud to offer a thatching in Wiltshire service that stands out above the rest. We are members of National Society of Master Thatchers (NSMT), the country’s largest organisation of thatchers, and all employees have undergone extensive training. We are also Check-a-Trade approved, and have received excellent feedback regarding our craftsmanship and reliability.

To ensure that your Wiltshire thatched roof is of the best quality, we only use the most reliable reeds. We use wheat reed and water reed in our thatching, both of which have been used as roofing materials for many centuries. While water reed is slightly tougher, there is little aesthetic difference between the two materials. To find out more about the differences between wheat reed and water reed, see our thatching page.

With our extensive knowledge on the subject, we can offer expert advice on all aspects of roof thatching. If you have any questions regarding fireproofing, site surveys, or insurance reports, we will be happy to help. We also offer professional water repellent coating to keep your thatching protected in harsh weather conditions.
