Comprehensive Range of Thatching Services
At Mike Bartlett Master Thatchers, we provide a comprehensive range of thatching services, including repairs and maintenance, water-repellent coatings, and ridge replacements.
Water Repellent Coating
A fantastic strategy to prevent moisture absorption, mould growth, decay, and discoloration is to use water repellent coatings. In the long run, these factors will increase the cost of your thatched roof by significantly reducing its longevity and effectiveness. Our coatings use deep-penetrating nanotechnology to build a barrier of defence against microbes including fungi, algae, and moss. The covering is colourless and water-permeable.
It is also:
- 100% Organic
- 100% Biodegradable
It can also be used on both water and wheat reed roofs.
The ridge, which runs along the upper centre of the roof, is essentially the support structure of any thatched roof. Ridges come in a variety of designs, from simple flush to elaborate, and should be updated approximately every ten years. The crew at Mike Bartlett Master Thatchers offers ridging in a variety of forms to fit any property and is highly experienced in this field. Call us right away if your ridge needs to be replaced if it has seen better days. Any delays could diminish your thatched roof’s overall efficiency.
Repairing and Maintaining Thatch
A thatched roof should, in our opinion, always offer excellent value for your money, but this is only possible if the roof is maintained. You don’t have to climb up there and do the job yourself, and we certainly don’t advise you to. Your thatched roof could live an additional 15-20 years if routine inspections and small, frequent repairs are undertaken by Mike Bartlett Master Thatchers. You will save money by using our repair and maintenance services rather than having the entire roof replaced.

Is a Thatched Roof Expensive?
When purchasing a new thatched roof, the cost can be quite significant. The reality is that there aren’t many professional thatching businesses, so those that do exist can set their own prices. We detest this way of thinking and will always maintain our commitment to providing our services at fair and reasonable prices. Additionally, we strongly advise paying for routine maintenance visits because they can extend the lifespan of your roof by up to 20 years and save you from having to replace it entirely.
