Newbury, Berkshire


Mr and Mrs Clarkes cottage was in need of a new ridge as it was thatched in water reed around 10 years ago and needed a reseal and tidy up.

The Challenge


Mr and Mrs Clarkes ridge was two different heights either side of the chimney and they asked us if we could level them up without taking off the lead flashing and give the rest of the roof a good tidy up.

The Outcome


We stripped off the ridge and built up the lower side of the chimney and achieved a good level either side of the chimney. We tapped the roof over and also placed a patch in the valley due to failing reed.

Ben, Jordan and Pete carried out the re-ridging of our cottage in a thoroughly competant and professional manner, they are a cheerful team and it was a pleasure to have them around.

The site was maintained in a scrupulously tidy state throughout and the job was completed on time and to our total satisfaction.

What more can I say except that I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommending Fowler and Sons to anyone requiring the services of a Thatcher.
