Of Mind

We are fully insured, distance is no object and we take the highest of pride in or work. Our testimonials are something of which we are very proud.

100+ thatch fires in 2006 increased the trend in thatch being changed to tiles. Magma Firestop® can stop this and give Peace of Mind.

Countryside Thatchers are fully qualified Magma Firestop® fire retardant applicators. The fire retardants are environmentally friendly, designed and tested specifically for use on thatched buildings and produced to ISO 9002 standards. Magma Firestop is a water repellant external fire retardant which can be sprayed directly onto the surface of the roof. In the United Kingdom Magma Firestop achieved the highest 'A' rating for its spread of flame credentials and protected the roof for well over half an hour. Within the fire retardant there is a special coating which helps to water proof the thatch.

    We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the thatching work recently carried out on Laundry Cottage. It is fair to say that the finished work not only meets but has exceeded our expectations. It is really beautiful. It is also gaining lots of interest and positive comments within the village and from passers by.

    Thatched cottages such as ours, which is almost 500 years old, need a lot of TLC and work carried out needs to be sympathetic to its character. The re-thatch has done this justice and will now add to the history of our home.

    When embarking on such a major piece of work, it is always key to getting the right tradesmen for the job. Well you and your team have certainly come up trumps. The lads were a joy to have on site. They were respectful to both us and our property and very patient with Digger. I must say we were absolutely delighted at their hard work and overall craftsmanship and I think this is evident for all to see.

    The guys also cleared up teh site constantly and the final clearance was great (tidier than before they started!)

    You should feel proud of the team you have working for you.

    As mentioned, if you have any future clients who would like to see the re-thatch, then please give us a ring and we will be happy to show them.

    Once again thank you so much - we are both very satisfied and happy clients.

    Just a letter to say thank you and your team for the outstanding thatch work on our cottage.

    We do feel that one of the biggest mistakes the owner of a thatched property can make is not to use Countryside Thatchers to work on their property.

    We have never seen such outstanding workmanship as we have seen from your company.

    The team of thatchers are all young but with far more experience than thatchers twice their age.

    The team turned up every morning at 7:30am, worked extreamly hard in all weathers, treated our property with respect and finished in record time.

    Thatching is a messy business and the property owner must expect some mess but once the team clear up you will not know they have been there apart from the superb standard of your roof.

    We have used other thatchers throughout the years but we just feel that we have just wasted our time and money.

    We only wish that we had come across this outstanding team earlier.

    Countryside Thatchers are becoming a major force in our area and we can see a time coming when other thatchers will just not get the work.

    People are stopping and looking at our thatch in amazement and we feel proud to be associated with your company.

    We would like to commend you on your thatching of April Cottage.

    You transformed our cottage from run-of-the-mill old thatch, often seen around, to a chocolate box picture postcard, the transformation is superb.

    Your team worked each day including the weekend until it was completed, they were courtious and hard working and did all we asked of them.

    When they finished it was left tidier than when they arrived. You were true to your word in all you told us before you started.

    I recommend you and your team to anyone and hope you have many more years of improving the cottages of East Anglia.
