The right solution for your
thatched roof project

Having devoted years to the craft of thatching, we have provided solutions for the majority of thatch problems or issues homeowners, architects, builders, surveyors, and thatchers may encounter. It’s this experience, research and development that make Thatching Advisory Services invaluable. In the event of building regulations, for example, we can guide you through which ire barriers and systems are best suited to each individual project.

Our internal advice centre offers comprehensive information on thatching and any concerns that you may have with your thatched roof.
