Why Choose Thatch Roofs?
- Aesthetically Beautiful - designing thatch roofs is much less restrictive than using tile or slate. The ability to incorporate beautiful flowing curves into thatch roofs means that you can be creative and design aesthetically stunning thatch roofs
- Economical - Thatch roofs can be extremely economical being warm in the winter and cool in the summer
- Environmentally Friendly - using locally grown thatch reduces the cost of roofs on the environment. Harvesting some thatch types even encourages growth!
- Thatch roofs sit beautifully in their natural surroundings
Thatch Roofs: Know How...
The structure of thatch roofs will last forever and the thatch should generally last between 20-30yrs if built to correct SABS specifications - dependent on the thatch type used and local climate (thatch roofs situated in harsh environments are likely to have a shorter lifespan). It is however important to maintain thatch roofs properly. Brushing thatch roofs every 5-8yrs, cutting back any trees which hang over thatch roofs and ensuring suitable drainage is installed initially, will all help to prevent premature rotting of the thatch. Applying fire protection to thatch roofs can also extend the lifespan. Without this vital maintenance thatch roofs will not last their maximum lifespan.

All thatch has a lifespan – it’s a fact. No matter how well it is maintained, no matter how well it is thatched and to what thickness it is thatched at, all thatch roofs will eventually get to the point of no return and will need to be re-thatched.
It is an inescapable fact that all thatch roofs have a lifespan but there are ways to prolong the natural life of any thatch roof. Caring for a thatched roof can be high maintenance - especially if small contributors to degradation of the roof have not been managed properly over time. Many more serious problems can be prevented through consistent maintenance and assessment of the state of the roof. Read more>
