07 Nov Enhance the Lifespan of Your Thatched Roof with Mike Bartlett & Sons
If you reside in a charming thatched property, you undoubtedly cherish the timeless appeal and cosy atmosphere it provides. But there’s a crucial element to maintaining your thatched roof’s longevity that not every thatcher openly discusses: the materials used.
While many thatchers claim to be the best for various reasons, we firmly believe that the quality of materials surpasses them all. A thatcher’s true prowess is ultimately measured by the materials they choose.
Here’s the unvarnished truth: as soon as your newly thatched roof is complete, it begins its lifelong battle against the elements. The sun relentlessly beats down on it, rain pours, wind tugs at its edges, and winter brings freezing ice and thawing cycles. Even the occasional snow and hail can take their toll.
Unfortunately, a vast majority of the thatching materials available on the market are mass-produced, utilising chemicals and limited crop rotation. While this approach may cut costs and expedite production, it falls short in creating materials with the resilience needed for long-term performance on your roof.
At Mike Bartlett & Sons, we approach thatching with a different mindset. We understand that the longevity of your roof depends on the quality of the materials used. That’s why we proudly source all of our thatching materials. This level of control from start to finish allows us to ensure the highest quality attainable for a natural product.
The results speak for themselves. Our projects from 30+ years ago still stand as a testament to the durability and reliability of our materials, effectively protecting both the property and its occupants.
If you’re a thatched property owner in Salisbury, Dorset, or beyond and you’re curious about our work, we don’t just invite you to see a recent project; we encourage you to explore something we accomplished three decades ago. It’s a testament to our unwavering commitment to quality.
We’re passionate about sharing more details in an upcoming blog post about how we produce our exceptional materials.
