Kates Cottage needed the ridge, both half-hips and the front re-thatching in combed wheat reed. Shaun's quotation was the most competitive and his early availability was also timely as part of the thatch above one of the windows was beginning to collapse. He started promptly after New Year and braved some freezing weather to complete the work on time, on budget and to a very high quality.

The scaffolding was erected efficiently without damage to walls or other roofs and the work began consistently and methodically.

Shaun is amicable, diligent and also innovative when needed eg erecting a sheltered area under the tarpaulin to continue during rain showers. The final result is excellent and admired by anyone walking past. After the completion Shaun cleared up thoroughly including cleaning a couple of hard to reach veluxes for good measure.

Highly recommended.
