Stuarts interest in thatching began in the summer of 1989 when he helped out a well-established local master thatcher during the summer school holidays and it wasn't long before he was offered a four year apprenticeship. During this period he meticulously and naturally honed his thatching skills to become a very able and respected craftsman. After his apprenticeship Stuart became a sought after thatching sub-contractor and for 12 years he worked on many unique projects and historical buildings. In 2003 Stuart decided to form his own company fundamentally based around a professional approach to a traditional art. Stuarts aim was to enhance the image of thatching by ensuring the quality of traditional crafts were mixed with the expectations of a modern customer care orientated business.

What Our Clients Think....
A thatched roof makes a house into something really special and we recognised that our 17th century cottage needed a careful and professional approach to the replacement of the complete roof. Appointing someone with the skills necessary to inspire confidence and bring craftsmanship to this project wasn’t an easy task for us. But after a great deal of research and conversations with plenty of people Stuart Viggers and his team were recommended to us. The whole team brought a professional level of hard working and conscientious determination through some pretty aggressive February weather to provide us with a gem of a roof that we love and constantly receive compliments from passers by.
