Welcome to Paul Burchell Thatching

To see Paul Burchell and his experienced team of thatchers at work is to take a glimpse into the past.

That’s because the thatchers who represent Paul Burchell Thatching Limited use methods honed over centuries and consider employing their skills as more of a vocation rather than simply a job of work. But combined with traditional values in the ancient craft of thatching, is a very modern approach to the requirements of clients.

It’s one of the many reasons Paul is so highly respected as a master thatcher of wide repute; his is a reputation hard earned and thoroughly deserved. As Paul explains:

“We’re a small, family business which has been established for more than 30 years and in that time we have become recognised as one of the leading thatchers in the country. We guarantee that customers are assured a warm, friendly, professional and fully insured service from hugely experienced craftsman who take pride in producing the very finest in thatched roofs.”

Indeed, it is this dedication which led to a prestigious Sussex Heritage Award in 2009. PB Thatching Ltd offers a complete thatching service including emergency repairs, re-ridge and overhauls, and complete re-thatching in the three materials of combed wheat reed, water reed and long straw. Paul adds:

“We are fire prevention specialists and have extensive knowledge in all the latest fire protection and prevention products available. We find this safety is reassuring and also can lead to reduction of your insurance premiums.” “All of our thatchers are members of the National Society of Master Thatchers. And all of our work is guaranteed and we offer a 24-hour emergency call out service, too. We are based in Eastergate, near Chichester, West Sussex and are happy to quote for any job nationally or overseas.”
