Cintsa Thatching Referrals

"This letter serves as a reference for Cintsa Thatching.
Cintsa Thatching was my specialist roofing sub-contractor on the Nedbank/Old Mutual Financial Services Centre in Centani, Eastern Cape. This eight building precinct was completed in 2008.
I dealt directly with Jonathan Bosazza throughout this ground breaking project. I was singularly impressed by the professional conduct of Jonathan and his team and in particular their expertise in both pole construction and wattle and daub. In spite of severe delays caused by inclement weather, Cintsa Thatching continuously met my demands for both quality and time since the contract deadlines were not negotiable in terms of the client’s opening needs.
I have no hesitation to recommend Cintsa Thatching. Please do not hesitate to call me."

"My association with Cintsa Thatching started in 2006 with a structural design and specification for the King Sandile Trust...I was involved in the design of the roof structure as well as the timber suspended floor to a restaurant. During this project it became evident that I enjoyed working with Cintsa Thatching and in particular Jonathan. His workmanship and attention to detail is of paramount importance and this entrenched my commitment to our working relationship.
We have since completed many projects together and I hope we will continue to do so in the future."

We finally did it! We converted our thatch to a tile roof using a product called onduvilla.

No dust, leaks, no more wind chill. Living in the windy City of Port Elizabeth we have serious wind previously gusting through the thatch (absolutely freezing in winter) we were forever living in fear of bush fires and lightning storms. Maintenance on the forever decaying Thatch is now a thing of the past.

Jonathan's crew have an amazing work ethic, we have tackled major renovations in the past but nothing on this scale and their workmanship is inspiring, clean, neat and steady.

Thank you for giving us a new home.

"As a foreigner in South Africa, I have built a hunting farm in the Eastern Cape. I have in this regard met many craftsmen but Cintsa Thatching was of all by far the most professional company. Jonathan has advised, built and serviced us beyond our expectations. I can recommend this company to anyone who wants top quality from a supplier who delivers what they promise."

"Jonathan Bosazza's team was professional and friendly. A pleasure to work with - particularly impressive in such a remote context where many services "fall apart". He managed to deliver a quality product and he was able to work comfortably within a remote rural environment. The roof of the hall that Jonathan and his team worked on is an impressive structure. It is simply a work of art, topping off what must be the largest traditional style rondavel on the entire Wild Coast!"

"We had our bed and breakfast cottages and dinning room thatched in 2007 by Cintsa Thatching.
The work was carried out professionally and supervised constantly. The after sale service is prompt and efficient. The best Cape Reed thatch was used to complete the job.
We highly recommend Jonathan and his crew anytime."

"Dear Jonathan, This is to thank you again for the fantastic service received from Cintsa Thatching.
The original maintenance work that Cintsa Thatching completed on my thatched roof was done in a most professional manner and solved problems that could not be fixed by two other thatching companies. The follow-up work was completed in the same manner - a guarantee by Cintsa Thatching is a guarantee that is honored. It is a pleasure doing business with you.
Kind regards"

"Cintsa Thatching should be recognised for more than just the professional, quality service they offer as a thatching and building company. As a relatively small company, they deserve credit for their awareness and contribution to community. As the Chairman of a non profit organisation working in Chintsa, we have been recipients to jobs undertaken by Cintsa Thatching that go well beyond a business agreement. Jonathan Bosazza’s presence on the sites where his teams are working, his willingness to engage with the customer and his generosity to meet needs and changing agendas are commendable, and which go well beyond the contractual agreements. We have only been very satisfied with the work he has undertaken."

"Cintsa Thatching has done extensive alterations to our home at Crawfords Cabins over the past year. These alterations included thatching, extending/enlarging rooms and a new bathroom. Their work can only be described as awesome! Not only were all the workers friendly and professional but they delivered excellent work in the promised time frames. We will definitely use their services again."

"Jonathan did an excellent job in repairing leaks and re-thatching parts of my house. After trying several other companies over a few years timeframe, I can honestly say that he did the best job of them all."

"Cintsa Thatching has restored our thatch roof above our bar area. We found them very professional and have been satisfied with their work. The thatch roof seems to be everlasting and no leakage at all for the past five years and is still going strong!"
