Reducing the cost of your Thatched Home Insurance

Thatched property owners can become restricted in some areas depending on the individual Grade Listings for each building.

The following tips may help you bring down the cost of your thatched property insurance:

  • Chimney Inspections – have the chimneys inspected annually by a qualified contractor
  • Door Security – front and rear doors should have 5 lever mortice deadlocks and bolts
  • Roof Inspections – arrange for annual roof or ridge inspections by hiring a qualified Thatcher and address all recommended repairs
  • Fire Security – there must be 1-2 fire extinguishers and smoke alarms on each floor of the property
  • Electrical Inspections – arrange for regular inspections with a qualified contractor and fix any remedial works to keep the electrics in the property properly maintained
  • Secure your property with window locks, screws and catches

No delays with qualified, professional Thatchers

Most thatched home owners who have lived in their property for a significant time will already have required the services of a local thatcher. However, if you’ve only just bought your thatched home or can’t contact your usual surveyor, you’ll need to contact someone if things go wrong.

AIC is unique in having an approved thatcher’s database around the UK, monitored by our team as well as regional associations in order to ensure consistent quality of work. We have ongoing relationships with several qualified professional thatcher’s, ready to be called upon as soon as you need assistance. We offer an unparalleled service in which you can be assured that all repairs will be carried out by trusted craftsmen whenever you need to make a claim on your thatched property insurance. Does your current home insurer offer this service?
