Our Hampshire thatching services

Here at RV Miller, we can cater to all of your needs for thatching services in Hampshire. From the smallest garden project to the biggest barn conversion, we’re able to complete any request. Keep reading to find out more about everything that we can do for you!

Water Reed

A hard-wearing and highly durable solution, water reed has been used on roofs for centuries and it’s one of the most common requests we get for thatching services in Hampshire. A roof that has been thatched in water reed should last in excess of 25 years.

This can be extended up to 45 years with proper maintenance. Our water reed is of the highest quality and has been imported from Turkey, Romania, and Hungary.

Wheat Reed

Same as water reed, wheat reed has been utilised on roofs for centuries, however, it’s less hard-wearing by comparison. A roof that has been thatched in wheat reed normally has a lifespan of 15 years.

This can be extended up to 25 years with adequate maintenance. When choosing between the different thatching services in Hampshire, it helps to remember that there is very little aesthetic difference between the two. At a glance, it will be very difficult to tell the difference unless you’re an expert.

Water Repellent Coating

With our new waterproof spray, you can preserve your thatched roof for even longer. This coating has been specially developed to be used on thatched roofs. It will impregnate and protect all types of reed, offering a long-lasting anti-mould barrier that will safeguard against:

  • Algae and Moss Growth Thatching Services in Hampshire
  • Discolouration
  • Moisture Absorption
  • Reed Mould
  • Rotting
  • Slime Build-Up


Water-based, fully organic and biodegradable, our water repellent coating is non-toxic. Our thatchers in Hampshire will spray it onto your thatched roof to create a colourless impregnation that is vapour permeable.


The ridge of your thatched roof should be replaced approximately every ten years to maximise service life. From ornate block ridging to plain flush ridging, we have it covered as part of our comprehensive Hampshire thatching services.
