Meet Reuben and his team…
Reuben Matravers started his career in thatching by completing a 4 year apprenticeship at Knuston Hall, Wellingbough. On completing the course in 1990 he formed RJ Matravers Master Thatcher. Since 1990 the company has grown and has a reputation of great master craftmanship with his team of 4 thatchers carrying out work across Somerset, Devon and Dorset.
RJ Matravers is a member of the National Society Of Master Thatchers.
This entry procedure ensures that the very highest quality standards, of craftsmanship are maintained and clients can have confidence in thatchers who demonstrate Society membership as part of their in-house business promotion.
“Personable, honest and professional”
“Without hesitation, we’d employ RJ Matravers again”
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. As and when we need any further work on our roof we will, without hesitation, employ this firm again.
“Many people have commented on how lovely the thatch looks when they walk past”
“I just wanted to say how pleased we are with the thatching you did and how lovely we found you all to have around. The guys worked so hard in less than perfect conditions and were always polite when I’m sure they would rather have been anywhere except on our roof! Many people have commented on how lovely the thatch looks when they walk past – so thank you very much Reuben. “
“We could not have found a nicer more professional company of exceptionally talented craftsmen anywhere else”
They have produced the most beautiful thatched roof, with a very special ridge for us and been accommodating throughout the work. It has been deemed the best roof in the village by many of the locals.
