Welcome to The Thatchers Homepage

Founded by two Master Thatchers in 1987, The Thatchers quickly established a reputation for high quality workmanship, professionalism and reliability. We offer free, no obligation quotations and advice to home owners, perspective buyers and sellers, insurance companies and estate agents. We boast an impressive portfolio of work, delivering consistently high quality services to a wide range of clients. In addition to our work for private home owners, past clients have included Property Management Companies, Local Councils and English Heritage.

We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and offer highly competitive rates. Unlike many practitioners in our field, we do not require that our clients make any payments up-front. Moreover, we do not expect final settlement until you are completely satisfied with our work and the site is left in a clean and tidy state.

The Thatchers consist of two fully qualified Master Thatchers, Stephen Craig and Chris Davey. We both undertook a five year apprenticeship under an award winning Master Thatcher from Essex. Between us we have over 55 years experience of thatching throughout East Anglia, but have travelled as far afield as the USA with our work.

All of our new thatching work comes with a written 10 year guarantee.
