Falmouth and the Roseland Peninsula

Mawnan Smith, Penryn, Falmouth, St Mawes, Tregony, Portloe.

We provide a choice of two ridging styles that can both we varied to your taste. The first is a traditional flush cut ridge, this style of ridge is traditional to cornwall and suits most thatched buildings in the area. The second is a pattern cut ridge, this consists of a pattern being cut from a block of combed wheat on the ridge, this style can be personalised anyway you wish with many pattern combinations but the most popular and our favourite is the scollop-point finish as seen in the picture.

You also have the choice for us to wrap the ridge over the top of your roof known as a wrap over ridge, or a more tradition style which is known as a butt up ridge where the butts of the material sit on top of each other either side of the apex, and lastly a rope finish, as the name suggest the reed is twisted to form the look of a rope sitting on the apex.

All our ridges are finished with a wire mesh to prevent damage from birds and vermin.
