traditional thatch roofs
Welcome to Traditional Thatch Roofs
GO GREEN... GO ORGANIC... GO THATCH
Traditional Thatch Roofs: building timber structures and thatching for the 27 years. We are very proud to say that over this time we have many satisfied clients and have completed many challenging projects.
These include many personal homes, thatch roofs for game farms and game lodges, thatch restaurants, thatch churches and numerous different designs and ideas of thatch lapas and gazebos.
At present we are located in Cape Town on the West Coast near Blouberg. Our skilled staff has been with us for many years and we are available to accomplish anything. If it has poles and thatch (Cape Dekriet) we can do it!
We also enjoy building the traditional west coast styled thatch homes with white gables and capping which are so popular in Jacobsbay and Paternoster. This design has been made famous by Traditional Fishermen's Homes along the coast.
We also specialize in the application of fire retardant to your thatch roof as well as fitting of a fire blanket and water drenching systems with sprayers on the roof capping for optimum protection.
We will also do the following: Engineers rational design, drawing of your plans, municipal approval of plans
