Here’s an example of a roof that is beyond repair and in desperate need of replacement.

As you can see in the images this roof has moss growing over extensive area’s the reed is also severely weather damaged and aged.

The thatchers first need to strip back the existing roof  to it’s base layer removing & treating the area’s affected by the moss and then the new layers of reed are built up and the thatch is replaced.

Eventually the reed layers build up and the thatch is completely replaced.
