Regional Thatch

The appearance of a thatched roof varies not only on the material used but also in the  style and detailing of eaves, dormers, ridges and surface decoration. Regional thatch differences are apparent and variations in style and technique can be applied. Variations by the thatcher also plays a part in the roof appearance e.g. ridge pattern or lattice work.

In general there are accepted standards of thickness/application but craft variance is a part of the character of a thatched roof.

It is important to mention that Listed Properties should be maintained in a “like for like” way.

The fact that thatching is entirely self regulating, means that the quality of the work and the integrity of the thatcher are paramount.
