Cintsa Thatching Ethos

High quality thatching by Cintsa Thatching

Cintsa Thatching has developed various innovative techniques to extend the lifespan of thatched roofs. We use the best quality Cape Reed (Thamnocortus Insignis) or Hyperhinia Herta depending on the location and environmental conditions of each job, and a selection of poles depending on requirements.

All Cintsa Thatchings roofs are built according to our engineers design and specifications. Our engineer, based in East London, is one of a few in South Africa that specializes in thatch pole constructions. All workmanship carries a guarantee.

Cintsa Thatching refuses to cut corners or costs, all of our work is completed to the highest quality possible which reflects in our stunning finishes and sturdy structures. If you are looking for a cheap fix, Cintsa Thatching is not the company for you.

Thatchers Association of South Africa (TASA)

Before TASA there was no regulating body to supervise or oversee the thatching industry- this meant that contractors of sub-standard skill were able to practice alongside the rest and had no-one to answer to. The Association today aims to provide both contractors and customers with guidelines as to the expected construction standards, quality and ethics that should be practiced by contractors, to achieve a strong basic standard for the industry as a whole.
