Thatched Roofing Solutions
A thatched roof is the covering of a predominantly, but by no means limited to, timber substructure with straw, reeds, palm leaves or a similar material. Synthetic thatch roof covering is another good thatching solution, especially in wetter, more humid and windy climates. Over and above the fact that cape reed African thatch is without a doubt the world’s most charming and beautiful form of roofing.
Benefits of a Thatched Roof
Additional living space.
Superb insulation qualities.
Whatever the climate, cape reed thatch is nature’s finest insulator. Beautifully cool and airy in the heat of summer and as warm as toast on a cold winter’s day.
Comprehensive tests have shown that compared to fibre cement / concrete tiles with in-ceiling insulation, the thermal performance of cape reed thatching with our built-in FireBloc is more than seven times better.
The FireBloc also performs another useful insulation function. Being of an exceptionally fine-gauge mesh, it traps most of the dirt and dust that normally filters through a thatched roof, virtually eliminating interior dust fall-out, helping you to keep your home even cleaner.
Exceptional re-sale value.
