Beautiful, bespoke thatch roofing. Made to last.
Welcome to The Ridgeway Thatching Company, we are a prestigious team of highly skilled thatchers based in Wiltshire. We also cover West Berkshire and Gloucestershire. Using only the highest quality materials and a mixture of both modern and traditional techniques. We pride ourselves on producing premium quality thatch, that will last.
The company was established in 2010 by myself, Alex. I first entered the trade after leaving school in 1991, then went on to complete my apprenticeship with a City & Guilds qualification, I’ve since then brought on a team of apprentices and passed my knowledge and skills through to the next generation of thatchers and in doing so, created a team I am immensely proud of.
We use the best organic materials that are available, our combed reed & long straw is grown in Devon, by a family now in their 3rd generation of growing thatching straw. We believe in quality local workmanship and like to source our materials with the least possible carbon footprint. Each job undertaken is done to the highest standard, we endeavour to make sure that all preparation is done completely to the present roof before applying the new coat work or ridge. So, not only does the job look good when we leave, it will also last.
If you have any questions, queries or would like a quote please feel free to contact me. I can talk you through the process from start to finish and with my knowledge and experience answer any question or unusual request that may arise.
