How my thatching jobs are priced
The general impression is that thatching is an expensive technique. To put it into perspective, the thatcher will spend many weeks hand crafting a bespoke roof, using expensive natural materials. His skill and ability will leave a roof that will last several generations, and bring happiness and comfort to those who dwell beneath it. The price for all this is usually cheaper than a new family car, which may last only a handful of years. A good quality thatched roof will add value to your home.
The price of a roof is determined by the area it covers, with features such as windows costing a little more. A ridge is priced by its length. You will find that top quality Master Thatchers tend to charge a broadly similar price, while some of the larger thatching companies offer cheaper rates. Bear in mind, as with much in life, you get what you pay for. Cheaper rates often means less skilled labour, inferior materials or lower standards.
