Variety of Combed Straw Materials to Choose From  

Water reed, straw, and combed wheat are the most frequent materials used to make thatched roofs. Our professional thatcher will assist you in determining the finest sort of material for you. The thatched roof consists of a base and a ridge, which is the roof’s highest point.  

The material’s properties differ based on what you envision for your roof. Some of the properties include longevity, durability, and appearance. Thatched roofs made from combed straw are different as the straw is grown explicitly for thatching. The combed straw gives off more of a shaggy historical appearance and needs the most experience to install. Keep in mind that you need the best thatchers to take care of such a delicate roofing installation. Our NSMT thatchers are more than qualified to install your combed straw roof wherever you are in the UK. 

Other Materials  

Many materials are utilised to get different forms and shapes of your thatched roof. The most commonly used materials for thatched roofs are water reed, straw, and combed wheat. Water reed roofing is believed to be the longest-lasting thatching option, as it can stay up to 40 years with maintenance. All of this material is used together to obtain the thatched roof you need. As a result, our thatched roofs are sturdy, stylish, and secure.
