“In November 2016 Kevin re-thatched our barn.  This was a tricky task because of the shape and age of the building and because the weather was wet and cold. Nevertheless he and Scott worked relentlessly, seemingly oblivious to the elements to complete the job on time and in line with the original estimate.

The result is stunning, I can’t stop popping out to look at it. He was also incredibly tidy, very sensitive to the demands of the building and site, consulted us and kept us informed of progress throughout.  

He and Scott were consistently cheerful and a joy to have about. We are extremely pleased with the result and would certainly recommend their services.”

“I was delighted with Kevin’s work. He is honest, reliable and very professional with an in depth knowledge of his craft well deserving of the title of Master Thatcher.

He kept us informed of the progress of the work and explained the techniques, materials and processes involved. He was very careful to protect the thatch when he was not working on it and tidied up at the end of each day always conscious of the appearance and safety of our property.

Kevin is friendly, conscientious, professional and hardworking and I would have no hesitation in employing him again nor in highly recommending him to anyone needing their thatch replaced or repaired.”

Mr A Holmes

Longparish, Andover

“We have always believed in giving young tradesmen the opportunity to prove themselves and hone their talents, Kevin had been an apprentice to a well-known and respected local thatcher.

He gave us a comprehensive quote which we accepted. The job he did was to budget with no hidden extras and well executed. He kept us up to date with the how and why of procedures and progress as he went along.  He cleared up each day, leaving it as a tidy work place and at the end he did a thorough clear up, as much as is practical when working with straw! The end result was excellent.

He is personable, conscientious, trustworthy, diligent and friendly. A good job well done by a young man whom it was a pleasure to employ.

We are happy to recommend Kevin Hammond Thatching.”

Kevin did a very good job of re-thatching our cottage. He was polite, honest, hard working and came in right on the quote. We were very happy with the result.
