What is a Ridge?
A Ridge seals the top of the roof and can be done with different materials; straw, water reed or sedge.
Many thatchers can adopt different pattern work with the use of hazel or steel in the pattern.
This can be a thatcher’s trademark. Generally, the client will determine what design will be used on the roof.
Designs vary from a flush ridge to a block ridge, or straight cut edge to a scalloped edge.
