With over 30 years experience as a master thatcher I have encountered many individual scenarios, as every roof is different with its own unique character.

From thatching bird tables & porches to complete removal of thatch, back to timbers & re- instatement to specifications of the Dorset model, conservation & grade listed work. I have seen & worked it all!

Along the way I have built a wealth ‘of experience in all thatch related requirements, as listed, & if something needs specialist attention, I can always recommend a trusted tradesperson of that particular field.

‘Brad has undertaken re-thatching & ridging on two occasions for me. I have found Brad to be very reliable & conscientious & he always produces a first class result. I would not hesitate to recommend Brad to any owner of a thatched property’

We can not recommend Brad Young highly enough. Not only did he assess our thatching requirement in a very professional manner, explaining his methodology at every step and gave us a very competitive quote which we were pleased to accept.
