Bosazza Roofing was contracted to re-thatch a large, self-contained flatlet on a private property in Chintsa East, Eastern Cape. The original roof had come to the end of it’s lifespan – the thatch was extremely thin and not well compacted resulting in leaks.
The scope of works on this roof included:
- Replacing of several bottom-cord roof poles and rafters in the roof structure to strengthen it
- Removing all old thatch from the roof and re-thatching the roof in new hyparrhenia hirta (thatching grass)
- Application of thatch fire retardant spray
