Find the Best Thatched Roof Maintenance Services
Many old buildings in the UK hold history within their design and, most specifically, their thatch roofs. Thatched roof maintenance is why the NSMT is dedicated to helping you keep your thatched roofs and houses looking the best they can be!
You can rest assured when working with us as we have many years of experience. The NSMT was created in the early twentieth century, around the 1940s, and this community of thatchers and apprentices in thatching is still active today. We are here to guide you and assist you in locating skilled thatchers to assist you with all your thatched roof maintenance needs!
Our service of maintenance also involves teaching, education, and application of risk management. The most significant risk for thatch roofs are fires. That is why we take great care in ensuring that you are not in the misfortunate few who lose their thatched houses to fires. As a result, we also offer our customers thatch insurance. If anything were ever to go wrong, we would make sure to help you every step of the way!
About Thatched Roof Maintenance
Thatched roofs are unique due to the material they are made up of. Not all thatched roofs are the same as different materials such as water reed, combed wheat reed, longstraw, and ridge are used in other roofs. All these materials need different levels of maintenance due to their longevity. This is why our master thatchers know precisely what they are doing!
Since each material naturally degrades over time, it eventually needs to be replaced entirely and thatched from nothing. We assure you that you will find the best thatcher to take care of your thatched house!
When a master thatcher arrives at your location after agreeing to their service, they start your thatched roof maintenance with a routine inspection of the thatch roof. The inspection is essential to root out any problems as soon as possible before it gets worse.
Benefits of Thatched Roof Maintenance
If you are looking to keep your thatched property in the best shape and state it could be, then you have come to the perfect place! Here at the NSMT, our master thatchers provide the best work and service to maintain your thatch houses. Much like we mentioned before, routine care and inspection must be done to maintain these thatched properties or roofs. Both the thatched property or roof owner and one of our master thatchers can contribute to the thatched roof maintenance.
The best research and practice of thatching recommends that the ride of the thatch should be changed every 10 to 15 years. This can vary on the type of material used, as some materials dry out much faster. To make sure your thatched roof is in the best shape it can be, you should make sure that it is dry. Inspecting the roof to make sure it is completely dry is important so that you don’t find damp spaces. This might lead to the growth of moss and algae, which will keep the roof wet. Frequently checking your thatched roof will increase how long it lasts. The drier it is, the longer it lasts!
