Thatching is one of Britain's greatest arts. Using thatch for roofing goes back as far as the Bronze Age and a drive through any rural area such as Dunster in Somerset and Great Tew in Oxfordshire will reveal a great number of thatched cottages that wouldn't look out of place centuries ago.
Your roof is the main part of your home that keeps the elements out. As such, any repair work or renovation work must be performed by a competent individual or a trustworthy and reputable roofing company. But how do you choose a roofer?
Roof leaks are tough to diagnose and they can cost thousands to repair. If you have a roof leak, it may not be as bad as you think though. Most roofs that leak do so because they have worn out or have been damaged over time.
