Find a Hampshire Thatcher

Simply access our find a thatcher page and search either by postcode or by thatcher name. Our database is full of registered members in your area who are available for projects. Keep in mind that if you come across a thatcher who claims to be an NSMT Ltd member, but they are not in our database, then they are not registered members. 


Why Choose Thatch?

Not only is a thatched roof aesthetically pleasing but it can also be long-lasting and increase the value of your property. Here at NSMT Ltd, we have introduced the Material Quality Scheme that identified where and how decay forms. By implementing measures throughout the process, the reeds will maintain their impressive properties. 

The Benefits of Thatched Material

As well as bringing beauty to your property, a thatched roof is environmentally friendly, and it could last for up to 65 years if taken care of properly. Keep in mind that water reed can last up to 65 years, while combed wheat reed can live as long as 40 years, and long straw has a lifespan of up to 25 years. 

In addition to the properties already mentioned, thatched materials are lightweight, sustainable, and flexible, so you can shape the reeds into attractive patterns.
