Mr and Mrs Curnow are new customers to Fowler and sons, This property needed the back re thatching and a new ridge however Mr and Mrs Curnow asked us to thatch the front as well to tie it all in together.
The front was a straight roof but the back had a big widow so we had to make sure we thatched with a good pitch so it was a steep ridge. We thatched the back first as this was the harder part of the roof and we had to go through the neighbours garden for access, luckily we have done work for them 3 years ago and many years before that. We removed the old thatch to a good firm base ready for the new thatch. After we had thatched the property we had to cut the eves for a nice crisp edge. We then applied the new ridge and wire.
Even though we had some access problems Mr and Mrs Curnows cottage was thatched and tidied to a high standard
Fowler and sons have just re-thatched our beautiful, much loved 15th century cottage in Ashbury. Not only have they done an amazing job their team were fantastic on site. Sadly we weren’t around much during the work but all the neighbours have congratulated them on their cleanliness and courteous nature especially as the front scaffolding was on the pavement. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them for anyone needing to have their thatch replaced.
At Fowler and Son Ltd, we merge high-quality traditional craft with what our customers expect of a morden business is centered on sterling customer service.
