Commercial Thatching in Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset & New Forest
At Steven Hewlett Thatchers Ltd, we provide high-quality and long-lasting commercial thatch roofing services for commercial properties across Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset & New Forest. We have an amazing reputation for providing outstanding services including new-build thatch installation, thatch repair, thatch replacement, patching, re-ridging and more. The Hewlett family’s experience in roof thatching spans generations, traditionally more popular with residential private homes. However, a well-thatched roof is incredibly popular for traditional public houses, restaurants, and establishments such as B&Bs.
The locations which we cover, namely Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset & the New Forest are well known for their picturesque country pubs with white-washed walls and well-thatched roofs. Especially in the summer with a couple of benches out the front filled with happy patrons. However, to keep the charming and practical thatched roof in the best condition all year round, it is vital for regular inspections and maintenance. Many factors can contribute to a commercial property thatch roof’s integrity including wild birds, weather conditions, debris and more.
A new thatched roof installed by a Master Thatcher today will probably outlive him – and the owners of the house that the thatch sits atop.
Thatch is renowned for its longevity, which is one reason why this eco-friendly form of roof covering is still around centuries after tiles and slate took over as the more common form of roofing.
A thatched roof can last 50 to 60 years – but there’s a caveat: it needs to be well-maintained to keep looking good and functioning well for its maximum lifespan.
Commercial Thatch Roofing Repairs
Steven and the team know how important it is to keep a business up and running, with as little disruption as possible. That’s why when your thatched roof is damaged or in need of repair, we are the local and reliable master thatchers on hand to provide high-quality repair services. Another bane of owners of commercial property with a thatched roof is that of pests and vermin. The thatched roof with its natural materials offers the perfect conditions for birds, rats, mice, squirrels and more to make their home. They can cause great deals of damage to the structure and appearance of the roof, with holes, runs and pulled straw materials. We can help you take control of your pest problems through protection and deterrents.
Commercial Property Thatch Materials
Thatch roofs come in a variety of different materials, all with their pros and cons for the property. Here at Steven Hewlett Master Thatchers Limited, we have considerable experience in all traditional thatching materials; long straw, combed wheat straw, water reed, and Norfolk reed. The right material and method will ensure protection from the weather and durable longevity for up to 15 years before a total re-thatching is needed.
