What We Do



We have been constructing thatched roof structures for the past two decades and have since been established as world leaders in this field. Radiating a touch of nature, ambience and undeniable beauty, there’s a distinct stylish charm that goes hand-in-hand with a traditional thatched roof.

Learn MoreAbout our Thatched Roofs

Timber is the most widely used building material in the world – it’s versatile, environmentally friendly, lightweight, affordable and with the proper timber treatment, can last for many years. Cape Reed prides itself in selecting the very best quality sustainable timber in all our projects.

Traditionally, a thatched roof would be covered by a natural product but as with so many things these days, we can’t ignore the advantages of synthetic materials in modern construction methods. Cape Reed Synthetic thatch aims to combine natural aesthetics with the benefits of synthetic thatch.

The South African workers knew their product inside out, spoke perfect English and had impeccable manners. Perfection was the final product."

John their sales manager was quick to respond to our enquiry

After reviewing the available similar companies in our area we chose Cape Reed to dismantle and replace two thatched outbuildings (a BBQ area and separate seating area). We found them to be highly professional, on time and on budget and we are delighted with the final product. John their sales manager was quick to respond to our enquiry, gave us a competitive and detailed no nonsense quotation. Claude, their project manager, made sure that we were kept informed of progress at each stage and dealt with any small issues that arose without skipping a beat. Can't recommend these guys highly enough and would certainly use them again.

They paid a lot of attention to detail

Cape Reed did a wonderful job building the roof structure of our new pool house. They paid a lot of attention to detail and delivered fully on time and within the agreed budget. It was a pleasure working with them.
