The Benefits of Having a Thatched Roof
Thatching is the oldest form of roofing. Having been around
for around 10,000 years, it is still widely used on many buildings today in the
UK and across parts of Europe. Adding distinction and value to your property,
thatched roofs are timeless and carry many benefits.

Counties. For more information, please call . 07831

One of the main benefits of thatch is that it is a
sustainable resource, meaning that thatched roofs are environmentally friendly.
It is probably one of the most sustainable roofing materials available, and its
harvesting methods are also eco-friendly. Harvesting thatch requires minimal
equipment and energy and is often sourced from rural communities.
As a natural insulator, it will keep your house warm in
winter and cool in summer, helping you save money on energy bills, thus helping
to reduce carbon emissions. The thickness of materials also provides a
fantastic, natural soundproofing barrier from the likes of airplanes and
Flexible & Lightweight
Due to the nature of thatch, it can be formed into many
shapes compared to more rigid roofing materials. Soft curves and ripples are a
popular feature on thatched roofs, adding character to your property without
compromising on quality, whatever size or shape your roof is.
Thatch is also very lightweight, so does not require heavy
support structures that other roofing types would, which lowers costs.
Thatch roofing materials are naturally waterproof. When the
materials are bundled together, water cannot seep through and will simply run
off. The pitch of your roof is essential in allowing the water to run off, so
it is not absorbed.
We use three main types of thatch:
