If you have a thatched roof, your business will be harder to insure. However, the charm and beauty of a traditional thatched pub keeps the punters coming and can be a great business investment. You do need specialist thatched pub insurance to mitigate against the higher risks that come with this kind of property. A thatched roof will limit the range of insurers you can choose between, but it doesn’t stop you from finding insurance altogether.
Most pub owners will compare different thatched pub insurance options before making a decision. This is best practice as you may find varying costs, although all specialist insurance is more expensive than a standard policy. Best practices in maintaining and mitigating the fire risk will also work in your favour.
Fire isn’t the only risk with a thatched roof, although it is the main consideration for most insurers. Thatched pub insurance should also provide cover for situations such as nesting and infestation form birds or rodents. You may also get cover for the risk of high winds or similar damaging the property.
Thatching isn’t a weak and short-lived roofing option though. A good quality, well-thatched roof should last fifty years or more, offering full weather resistance.
Fire precautions are essential in all businesses but especially when you have the added risk of a thatched roof. Best practice recommends:
1. Placing smoke detectors in the roof space and at key locations around the pub
2. Have the electrics and chimneys checked regularly be a qualified professional
3. Ensure fire-resistant barriers are in place for your thatching
4. Ensure all thatching is coated in fire-retardant spray
“Over 6 years ago, I was working on a door in the lake District when I met Oliver for the first time. We started talking about a variety of subjects, and he asked who I worked for. I informed Oliver that it was my company Tactical Security Options Ltd, and that we carried out a all aspects of security and protection.
Oliver informed me that he was involved in insurance. From that day forward I have used Justquoteme ltd, for my security company. The service, after sales, advice and assistance from Oliver personally has been outstanding.
So much so, if anyone asks me who do you use, I always say Justquoteme.
I highly recommend Oliver and his company, and we look forward to having a very long lasting relationship with him.”
