Why Redruth Thatching?

Statement: Thatch roofs are getting a bad name in South Africa!

The main reason is the “fly by night”, smooth talker, cell phone “back yard” operator. Such operators are usually totally oblivious to the latest building codes and requirements as specified in the SANS 10407:2006, as they are not members of the SA Thatcher’s Association. If the thatch roof fails within the next 2 years the “fly by night” won’t be there, so why should he build a roof of which the structure will last forever and the thatching more than 20 years?

A house is one of the biggest investments the average person will make. Adding a thatch roof should increase the value of your property, not decrease the value. Don’t entrust your biggest investment to the typical “fly by night”.

Redruth Thatching does not employ salesman. We use structural designers! We design outdoor entertainment areas, we don’t sell thatch roofs. We will advise you about possible positions, positions related to the sun, the shape, fire risks and whether a plan is needed.

We guarantee that all roofs we construct will adhere to specifications required by structural engineers. All Redruth roofs will adhere to SANS 10407:2006 specifications and to “A Guide To Good Thatching Practice” by the CSIR.

Our Structural Designers will present you with a detailed works drawing.
