Thatching Services

I started thatching as an apprentice in the Waveney Valley 15 years ago and began my business in 2001.

In 2007, I gained the prestigious Master Thatcher title – awarded by East Anglia Master Thatchers Association (EAMTA) following assessment of my work.

Although predominantly a Suffolk thatcher, I am also available for work throughout Norfolk and Essex, and for large projects in other parts of the UK.

I work mainly with water reed (also known as Norfolk reed) and long straw, the area's traditional thatching materials. As much as possible, I source reed from the Norfolk Broads – and to ensure a constant supply of quality straw I grow it myself using traditional methods.

...Everything was cleared away on 16th October 2012 and there was this beautiful reed thatch with a netted, patterned straw ridge - the pattern unique to my roof.

It was an amazing experience to share with others - it was, and still is, the subject of admiration - a tribute to Dominic.
