Repairs and Patching
A thatched roof will always suffer from some wear and tear usually the result of the weather or wildlife. As with the old saying “A stitch in time saves nine” the same can be said of minor repairs.  Simple re- patching will prolong the life of your roof and save you the inconvenience of a full reconstruction.

Ridging
The ridging along the top of your roof covering is probably the single most important element to keeping the whole structure of your home water tight.  The ridge if not maintained properly can be very expensive to replace along with the damage created by its deterioration.  The ridge or cap is made from a tight weave that prevents water intrusion and is usually decorated to enhance the thatch
