Permavent SKYTECH PRO XL was recommended by the Thatcher for the following essential benefits:
A rethinking of the ‘Dorset Model’, Thatchers like Keith Walden can install Skytech PRO XL with ease and confidence, a primary reason for Permavent Ltd’s involvement in Batchcott House. The property is a family home and holiday cottage in rural Shropshire, with roofing elevations dating back to the 16th century.
The existing thatched roof was stripped, exposing areas of original thatch from the 16th century, 1500mm deep. Where necessary rafters have been replaced with new treated timber.
SKYTECH PRO XL has been installed as per Permavent’s fitting instructions, good roofing practice and compliance with BS5534 & 5250. Restrained using treated batten and counter-batten, prior to installation of new Water-Reed thatch.
