With 15 years’ experience in thatching, Jon Weatherhill Thatching covers thatching work in Dorset and South Somerset.

Re-ridging Work

We are on hand for all your re-ridging requirements - from a traditional Dorset flush ridge to a Block patterned ridge including checks to cement fillets, replacing if necessary.


If required, we can conduct a free annual inspection of your thatched roof.


No job is regarded as 'too small'. We are on hand to offer our thatching expertise whether it is a minor patch-up or a more substantial thatching roof repair. We can also be involved in any on-going maintenance required, as a small repair now could extend the life of the thatch.

Emergency Repairs

We offer emergency repairs. We can also supply you with a tarpaulin covering (this is free prior to commencement of thatching work booked for us to do).

Straw Animals

As well as catering for all your roof thatching requirements, we also supply straw animals to liven up your roof.

Thatch Condition Reports

It may be a requirement for insurance purposes, to conduct an appraisal of an existing thatched roof, this is a service which we are happy to provide.
