A thatched roof is a real statement on a home, thatch gives a lot of versatility in the shape and angles possible in the roof allowing curves and contours where conventional roofing will not. Thatch is also a natural insulator being cool in the Summer and keeping in heat in the Winter.
Ensure that you always use a reputable thatching contractor who can provide references, examples of past work and proof of their membership to the Thatchers Association of South Africa (TASA).
