  • Thatch repair and re-ridging a kitchen extension.

    10Verified Review

    We were badly let down by another thatcher who walked out leaving the job not finished and loads of mess. Nick and team sorted it out and finished the job leaving everywhere tidy. They finished on time and did some tidying up after the scaffolding came down while we were away. They did an amazing job, completed the thatch, added a fire barrier, sorted out a half finished window and then ridged to finish. They cleared up every evening and left everything clear at the end. Can highly recommend, a really good job completed with no fuss. Our house is beautiful again! ??

  • Re ridge, re wire, clean and repair of existing thatch.

    10Verified Review

    Nick and his team were exceptional. They carried out the work whilst we were away from the property and when we returned we couldn't have been more pleased. The quality of their work is absolutely world class. The site was clean and tidy and the end product is extraordinary. The whole thatch looks new. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
