Tom Dunbar Thatching has earned a fine reputation as highly-skilled craftsmen. We have a sympathetic approach to all of our work, regardless of the property’s size or age.

We are fully-qualified to carry to any of your thatching requirements, specialising in combed wheat reed and water reed.



All of our ridging work is finished to the highest standard, with the entire body of thatch being re-dressed (this tightens up the coat work and levels it out, allowing water to be shed evenly) and cleaned down once the ridge is completed.

Repair work (patching) can keep a roof weatherproof for many years and we feel that this approach should be a consideration of every roof that we are asked to view.

ShuteLaneShould you employ us to work on your roof, you can be assured that Tom Dunbar himself will be working on your project. “I don’t sub-contract work out, unless it has been discussed prior to the contract starting”

We believe in keeping a tidy site for the duration of works, not just completed work.
