Any thatched roof will need re-ridging every 10-12 years, and when this work is carried out the roof will also be generally tidied up, small repairs done, moss removed and the edges of the roof straightened. If the roof has wire netting, this will be removed and on completion of the work, new netting will be fitted.
Our information sheet on ridges details the different types of ridges fitted by thatchers in the UK and Ireland and shows how ridges will vary greatly in their make-up which creates distinct regional styles. All ridges are not the same.
