Professional Reference:

“My association with Cintsa Thatching Cc. started in 2006 with a structural design and specification for the King Sandile Trust…I was involved in the design of the roof structure as well as the timber suspended floor to a restaurant. During this project it became evident that I enjoyed working with Cintsa Thatching and in particular Jonathan. His workmanship and attention to detail is of paramount importance and this entrenched my commitment to our working relationship.

We have since completed many projects together and have a great working relationship with extends over 15 years and continues to flourish.”

When did ‘Cintsa Thatching’ become
Bosazza Roofing & Timber Homes?

Jonathan Bosazza founded Cintsa Thatching Cc. in 1999 and quickly become a leader in the Eastern Cape thatching industry by building a reputation for quality workmanship and thatch roof services. For a long time we called the business “Cintsa Thatching and Roofing” but in 2018 we realized that the name didn’t really reflect who we are and what we do as well as it should. One reason for this is that we started building custom timber homes, another is that we work nationwide, not only in the small town of Chintsa.

We decided to rebrand the business as Bosazza Roofing & Timber Homes and feel that this name gives a more clear picture of us and our services.

The name “Bosazza” comes from Jonathan’s father whose family originated in Northern Italy in a little town called Rosazza (not to be mixed up with the South African BOSASA scandal which has nothing to do with us!). “Roofing & Timber Homes” are our key specialties. If you would like any more information about the company please feel welcome to contact us so that we can send you a copy of the Company Profile.
