What can cause a damaged roof?
Many different factors can cause a damaged thatched roof including:

Fire – Fires are due to different causes, if you have a faulty chimney, it can cause thatched roof fires which can cause mass damage to your roof. Unfortunately, if there is severe damage then you may need a full roof re-thatch.
Leaks – Having a leak, whether it is little or large, can cause widespread damage subject to the cause, the faster you can find the where the leak is coming from the more of your roof you can save.
Moss & Lichen – Moss or lichen grows when there is a rise in moisture on your roof, such as when you have a leak. Moss can be removed easily; however, the longer you leave it, the more damage to your roof it causes.
Nature & Mother Nature – If you have trees and bushes near your roof, that haven’t been maintained they can cause damage to your roof. Even the weather can cause harsh damage on your thatched roof.
