Why Choose Thatch Roofs?
There are many reasons to invest in thatch for your roofing material. The term thatching refers to a method of building a roof in which dry vegetation is used. We take these long pieces of vegetation and layer them and weave them together to create a structurally sound, highly durable roof covering. Around the world, thatch has been used in this manner. People have used straw, water reeds, rushes, palm branches, and other materials to create them. We offer both natural and synthetic thatch roofs.
Traditionally used in tropical climates, thatch offers many benefits. It is a very eco-friendly option for roofing material, especially when compared to the asphalt products often used today. Those products are very much bad for the environment. There are other benefits, too.
For example, thatch roofs are very durable and long lasting. When done well, it does not require much maintenance. These roofing materials are designed to last for decades without much worry about them. More so, the roof is much lighter than other types of structural designs. As a result, it requires less overall timber and strength in the design of the property.
