Bardsley & Brown Master Thatchers
Added on March 5, 2006
In 1989 Barney and David decided to amalgamate their businesses and form Bardsley and Brown Master Thatchers.Most of the contracts we undertake are within a 30-mile radius of Newbury although work is sometimes undertaken further afield.
We use all the main thatching materials, (Long Straw, Combed Wheat Reed and Water Reed), although presently, Combed Wheat Reed is by far the most commonly used material in the area.
We will happily advise on a programme of work for the thatching requirements of a property and willingly liase with builders,architects, surveyors and conservation officers, as needed, at both planning and building stages.
We are able to give independent roof surveys for estate agents, potential purchasers of thatched properties, insurance companies and thatch owners.
We have thatched roofs of all shapes and sizes from a large modern family house through pubs and even a small dog kennel!
Jane Brown and Mig Bardsley are partners in the business. Jane does all the secretarial work while Mig deals with some of the day-to-day administration.
