About J. H. Harman Master Thatcher’s

J. H. Harman Master Thatcher

We thatch in all the three main materials – combed wheat straw, water reed and long straw.

As a well-respected firm of master thatchers, we offer an excellent service undertaken by members of our fully qualified, conscientious thatching team at extremely competitive prices.

Since our inception back in 1974, our international reputation has followed from small conservation works to larger-scale prestigious thatching projects in places such as the U.S.A., France and Ireland.
Using traditional methods we also grow our own English varieties of wheat straw for which no artificial nitrogen is added.

Some of our work has been filmed which can be viewed on our ‘The Process page’. If you would like to receive a copy of this we would gladly send you one.

Our Interests – We are totally sympathetic to all regional styles and all requirements for listed buildings and of course all conservation matters.
