Water reed re-thatch

Front elevation water reed re-thatch project.

Team TW is looking forward to starting its next water reed, re-thatching project.  The job in hand will be to strip and clear the front elevation and re-thatch the whole area in beautiful, top quality water reed.  As usual, the ridge runs will be tightly sparred with new ridge rolls fixed to the apex ready to receive the new ridge and the re-thatched section will be tightly packed using all the appropriate natural fixings to hold the whole beautiful re-thatched section together.  The new ridge will be built up on top of the finished thatch and then fixed in place with spars and ledgers, maintaining a perfect thickness and a correct pitch.

Once the structural work has been completed and the new water reed laid, the coat work and eaves will be dressed and cut to give a truly superb finish.
