What our clients say…

“Without hesitation, we’d employ RJ Matravers again”

We first engaged R.J. Matravers Ltd. to renew the ridge on our property in 2005 which they undertook effectively, on time, tidily and at a competitive cost.
In 2014, when the rear portion of our roof required complete rethatching we did not hesitate in engaging R.J. Matravers Ltd. to carry out the work which they did over a period of several weeks to our entire satisfaction

Mr R Wykes

“Personable, honest and professional”

I was fortunate to find Reuben Matravers, his team (including terrier dog) via the Internet back in 2016. Reuben in very personable, honest and professional at what he does; a true Master Thatcher. Reuben completed re-thatching of half the roof (prevailing weather side) of my cottage in Somerset during the Summer 2016 advising that the other side had at least 8 years life left. I appreciated that.

“Thank you for putting the majesty back on our roof”

What was left of the old roof has been deposited at the Eco-Station and the huge bag folded and ready to be used as a one off with my grass trimmings…usually five large garden sacks.
My wife and I would like to thank you and the team for repairing and wiring our roof. Success and quality is never an accident. It is always the result of ‘high’ intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.  Whether climbing ladders or stitching on the roof we hardly knew you were there.  Again, thank you and the team for putting the majesty back on our roof in such a neat and tidy manner.
PS. Thank you Sophie for timely interventions.
