Thatched Roof Measurements

In order to arrive at a thatching price, Thatchers need to know the surface area of roof to be thatched.

However this is not the surface area of the un-thatched roof or the timber area but the surface area of the finished surface of thatch including the eave overhang – which may be 20% more than bare roof.

The difference between the two can clearly be seen when looking at these before and after photos of an oak framed gazebo.
