Specialist Thatched Insurance

Every thatched home is uniquely beautiful, which often makes each one uniquely difficult to insure. Finding the right thatched property insurance can be a challenge.

There are hundreds of companies offering domestic property insurance in the UK but only a small percentage offer good value insurance for thatched houses, listed buildings or those of non-standard construction.

At Thatch Shield, we specialise in thatched properties. With over 40 years experience of thatch, our clients benefit from all that knowledge. We assess their unique insurance requirements and using our comprehensive knowledge of the thatch insurance market, match the best cover to each unique thatched property.
