Long Straw Re-thatching in Suffolk.

Here’s a bit of before and after of a re-thatching that we did in Suffolk.

All the old thatch at the edges of the roof has been removed and replaced with new to give a neat finish.  The base coat of thatch was retained and the new 16” thickness of straw was sparred into this after repairs were carried out to the base coat which was quite bad with extensive gulleying.
