Maintaining Your Roof

 

You can maintain your roof by putting together a maintenance schedule.
On average the roof should be bluestoned once a year.

The ridge could be covered in chicken wire to prevent birds from gathering the thatch for nesting materials. You can also wire hips exposed to the wind to prevent wind damage.

Cut back overhanging trees and clean moss and likens off the coat.
Do not let anyone walk on your thatched roof (except a thatcher)
Do not light fires / BBQ’s near that thatched roof.
