From start to finish, we were very impressed with the high level of quality and great detail the work was carried out. Philip worked through the rain / cold and always had a positive attitude.
Edward O’brien- Philip was professional and organized. He kept us updated on the project and made a stunning thatch for our garden cottage. We're thrilled with the outcome and wouldn't hesitate to work with Philip again.
Smith Egan- Philip I appreciate you restoring my damaged roof. Now that one concern is gone, it looks nice and cozy! I sincerely appreciate all of your efforts. We are delighted with it and grateful for your efforts in working efficiently.
Thatch is unlike any other roof form - it is not only as good as the material quality, but also the skill of the thatcher. I have been a full time thatcher since 2003 including self employment. With all my work, I give guarantees that underwrites all thatching work. Typically I will guarantee work carried out for a minimum of five years.
