Discusses the thatching industry, looking at the main thatch materials together with their characteristics, to provide a brief analysis of how thatch works, in particular its water resistance. Outlines the basic items to look for when compiling an up‐to‐date report on any particular thatch. Provides a glossary of thatching terms. Suggests that each thatched roof should be assessed on its merits, and advice sought from either the local Master Thatcher′s Association, or a fully experienced and reputable thatcher.
