Established in 1961 by Bob Armstrong, Armstrong & Shelley Master Thatchers have established a reputation for quality workmanship of all types of thatched roofs that is second to none.
Thatched roofs created with such care and attention will last a good 25 years compared to some lesser quality thatched roofs which may only last 15 years. The difference is the quality of materials used, together with the preparation and groundwork to make sure that the base coat of the roof is sound for the fixing of the new thatch.
Armstrong & Shelley Master Thatchers are specialists in wheat and water reed thatching and carry out quality craftsmanship thatching cottages, houses, stables, outhouses etc. within a 30 mile radius of Downton, Salisbury, covering parts of Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. Please contact us for both full roof thatching and thatched roof repairs, surveys or reports. We offer competitive quotes with no VAT to pay.
