Project: Traditional Style Thatched Roof in Cape St. Francis

This thatched roof in Cape St. Francis in the Eastern Cape was in need of a lot of care and attention. The client approached us to give a quotation on repairing or replacing the old thatched roof which was leaking and generally in a bad state of repair. Our team re-thatched the entire roof with Cape Reed fitting a fire blanket as they thatched and installing new drainage valleys to all valley sections.
The roof structure is built in a traditional style with a high pitch and gable ends.
