Having a thatched roof is hugely aesthetically pleasing, but a lot of work goes into maintaining its beauty. If that worries you, then we are here to dispel your concerns. We have experts within our team that are happy to work with clients in Devon. Thatching services at RV Miller are second to none, as we will cater to your needs through our friendly and professional service.
No matter whether you require a small or large project, we are here to get the job done. Our thatching services in Devon involve us discussing with you the types of reed that can be used. We lay the surface with either water reed or wheat reed, and both are beautiful to look at.
When you come to us for thatching services, Devon-based clients will be fully informed about the difference in the two reed options. Water reed is durable and should remain in a healthy state for 25 years, but with regular maintenance, it can last 45 years.
As for wheat reed, it does not last as long as water reed – roughly between 15 to 25 years. The material is not as durable, and it is quicker to rot. The upside with wheat reed is that it is lighter making it ideally suited for rooftops which cannot sustain a heavier roof constructed from water reed. So, if you are based in Devon, thatching services at RV Miller will include all the relevant information needed before beginning the project. Both reeds have been used on properties for centuries.
Thatched roofs instantly attract attention when approaching a property, and it is one of the first things a person would notice. With that in mind, it is imperative that the surface looks meticulous. Here at RV Miller, out thatching services in Devon involve a variety of things, including:
Some people may think that once the roof has been laid, the job is done, but they would be wrong. It is important for the ridging to be replaced every ten years as part of the maintenance, and we provide this as part of our thatching services. Devon-based clients should not hesitate to enlist the help of RV Miller for this particular job.
Unfortunately, there are occasions when roofs encounter minor issues. When this happens, we are available to carry out repairs, including for customers in Devon. Thatching services at RV Miller include fixing any problems that arise.
