We also offer expert advice on chimney regulations regarding thatched properties. For instance, if you are changing your existing chimney or planning to install a wood burner, then it is vital that you check with your insurance company, schedule an inspection of your existing chimney, carry out a smoke test and install a carbon monoxide alarm.
Fire safety of your thatched roof
Did you know that the top of the chimney pots have to be at least 1.8 metres above the thatch to avoid fire risks? It is also advisable to have your chimney swept twice a year or quarterly. While re-thatching, our thatchers can inspect the hidden sections of your chimney to ensure the liner and brickwork of your chimney is in good condition.
