We continue to provide re-thatching projects professionally and guarantee adequate sealing to prevent any potential leakages. Our clients frequently call us during rainy times of the year, to tell us that the sealing was a big success and that there were no water leaks to worry about anymore.

We also make sure that the nooks of the roof are also painted where appropriate, which gives the building a stunning terra-cotta colored finish that our customers remain very pleased with.

Thatch Repairs

Poplar Trusses

We go out of our way to reach and fulfill the needs of our customers. Our team completes jobs regularly and we’re always up to the task. Many projects involve the design, construction, and installation of exposed poplar trusses for the roof framework done by our team.

To carefully align the trusses where they would be fixed to the walls, we sometimes even use an 8-ton truck crane. Our team effectively accomplishes each project with accuracy, hard work, and determination, and the end product is a special and natural feel that generates space with almost twice the volume. To ensure structural excellence, all our installations are built while following architectural requirements.

Thatched Roofs constructed to SANS requirements to guarantee protection and stability

It is critical to conform to the required regulations to ensure protection and stability while constructing thatched roofs for your house or Lapa. Thatchscapes specializes in just the finest standard workmanship for our customers. We continue to ensure that it is not only secure but also that our work represents our competence and quality assured installations as we take on a new project. Often we encounter a thatched roof that isn’t designed to the specifications of SANS 10407.

To strengthen the framework, our team must remove the existing roof and design the structure and use treated poles. You may rest assured that we can create a superior quality construction that is both stunning and secure, when you pick us as your thatching and construction partner, so you get what you pay for. Thatchscapes is proud to provide excellence and protection with all the work that we do.

Creating natural light with Tony Sandell roof windows

Our roof windows and skylights are the way to go if you are trying to get any natural light into your thatched roof. This is the only window we use and we value the product’s consistency and longevity.

Our company specializes in installing roof windows and specialized flashing kits of thatch that are created for each window. For their requirements, our customers may choose from a broad variety of sizes. Only a specialized thatch contractor will mount these roof windows, and since our company has years of experience in the thatching business, our customers can be confident that they can only get the finest quality and workmanship.

No job is too big or too small

At our company, we agree that no matter how large or small the job might be, every job or project requires the attention it deserves. We concentrate on delivering excellent and competent support while striving to remain under certain time limits. We don’t focus solely on big projects. So, if you have a thatched roof that requires a bit of extra care, make sure you contact us for excellent service and great rates.

If you need a carport or covered area for a large or small structure, we will build a custom thatched roof centered on the area you’d need, according to your requirements. We promise the best standard and workmanship of our goods and designs.

Custom-designed thatch roofs

We believe in going the extra mile to ensure that our valued clients get exactly what they hope for. At a recent installation at a clients home, instead of a typical thatched roof section, we rather installed it as a cover for an outside staircase and increased the overall elegance and design of the building.

To achieve functional and appropriate structural excellence, our planners and construction teams work closely together. We do our best to establish a creative and feasible approach, even if we are met with unexpected demands or problems.
