The No.1 Winchester Thatchers Company

Thatched roofing is a traditional roofing method dating back centuries, and it involves the use of dry vegetation, such as straw and water reed, to create the roof covering. It is a popular roofing method in the UK, with many cottages and more modern builds utilising it. This is both for its aesthetics and for the sustainability of the materials, and thatched roofs offer excellent insulation too.

However, a thatched roof requires specialist attention when compared to traditional roofing, such as slate and tiling. You can’t just call up any roofer and have them maintain or repair the thatched roof, as they won’t be trained and could cause more harm than good. Plus, it is good to have a healthy knowledge regarding thatching before investing in a thatched roof property, ensuring you know how to take care of it.

So, how do you go about finding reliable and qualified thatchers to work on your roof? And how do you find out more about thatching in general? Here at the NSMT, we can help you with all of the above, as we are the number one Winchester thatchers company. We are the largest recognised body of thatchers in the UK, and we provide information regarding thatch and help thatched property owners find qualified thatchers in their area.

We can match your thatched property and thatching requirements to a registered master thatcher in Winchester, ensuring you have a reliable team to carry out any work you need. Plus, we can talk you through thatching in general, from materials used and the best way to maintain your thatched roof to providing advice on insurance companies and more. Whatever your requirements for thatching, we at the NSMT will be on hand to assist you.

Find Traditional Winchester Thatchers

As mentioned above, we at the NSMT are the largest recognised body of thatchers in the UK, and our aim is to help thatched property owners find reliable and qualified thatchers in their area. So, if you need a reliable team to carry out your roof thatching services, you need look no further than the NSMT’s database. We can match your thatched roofing requirements and thatched roof property to a skilled and qualified master thatcher near you, ensuring you hire a team you can trust with your thatched roof.

As the largest recognised body of thatchers in the UK, we at the NSMT boast a database that lists thatchers we have recognised as skilled, qualified, and trustworthy. These thatchers work throughout the UK, with some prepared to work abroad if required, and every member’s work has been inspected by their peers.

Plus, every member thatcher agrees to our Guide to Considerate Site Practice, so you can rest assured that every thatcher in our database is skilled, qualified, and trustworthy.

When you are searching for a Winchester thatcher, you should be aware that there are an increasing number of thatchers that claim to be members of the NSMT when they are not. These thatchers mislead by displaying our logo on their site, vans, and paperwork. This is why you should only use our Find a Thatcher database when searching for thatchers in Winchester – if a thatcher isn’t listed in this database, they are not registered members.

To use our handy database, simply enter your postcode and a list of registered thatchers near you will appear. You can then choose the thatcher you wish to hire from this list, safe in the knowledge they will be trustworthy and carry out high-quality thatching on your property.
