Thatched Property Insurance

With only 1 in 25,000 homes in the UK having a thatched roof, it’s fair to say that thatched homes are unique. Unfortunately, this can make thatched property insurance difficult to find. Conventional insurers tend to shy away from homes that don’t fit the norm or easily tick all the boxes. But at Higos, we specialise in things that are different. Our knowledgeable thatched roof insurance team love finding excellent levels of cover for your thatched home. 

Our Thatch Insurance can include:

  • Our own thatched property insurance scheme with an A-rated leading UK thatch insurer
  • A fully funded chimney survey for solid fuel stoves
  • A fire risk assessment if your chimney is used by solid fuel stoves.

Why is it important that I have specialist thatched house insurance?

Just like any homeowner, you want to be financially protected if an unexpected event occurs. With a thatched roof, however, the risks of fire damage and general roof decay are much higher. This means they require more manual labour to ensure their upkeep, as well as bespoke house insurance for thatched properties in case of damage.

Don’t let this put you off!

The extra maintenance for a thatched roof is worthwhile. Not only does it contribute to the traditional and historical aesthetic of your home, but it is also a fantastic sound proofer and insulator! Thatched roof house insurance doesn’t have to be complicated. Speak to our knowledgeable team and we will find you a bespoke policy that factors in your home and lifestyle.
