Why are Thatched Roof Insurance Surveys needed?

Many thatch insurance companies require a thatched roof insurance survey carried out before they will issue insurance. Having your thatched roof professionally  surveyed is a great idea even if you already have insurance, as it will let you know whether you have the correct thatch insurance. The insurance companies are principally concerned with fire risk.

So you may wish to think about the following:

  • Is the roof currently protected by any safety measures?
  • Has the thatched roof been regularly maintained?
  • Was the original thatcher a trusted company?
  • Have there been any alterations made to the house such as extension?
  • What material has been used for the thatch?
  • Is the chimney lined and when was it last swept?
  • Are there any open fires or wood burning stoves in the house?
  • Are there any trees located close to the house?
  • Is there a recent electrical certificated?
