About us

Chris Essex Master thatcher 

With over 23 years experience in the thatching trade and over15 years running my own business you can be assured of a top class service from a well established thatcher.


Four Counties Thatching are Master Thatchers who are well established in the south east of England. We have worked on many house and new builds over the years and also worked on some prestige jobs such as the daily mail show homes at Hampton court flower show.  As a result of this we also got a call to work on some film sets (Robin Hood and Shakespeare in Love).

No two projects are the same and we can tailor each job to suit the needs of the building. this can be from what reed is need to the fire barriers required to meet building regs


We have 5 million Public Liability Insurance.


We use only the best quality materials, using Water reed, Combed Wheat Reed and Long Straw based on the requirements of the job.


Our web site shows some examples of our work and services we can offer over the many years.


In the past few year we have added a range of fire barriers. These are recognised by insurance companies and will help to reduce the cost of your premiums.



If you need any advice please feel free to contact us.
