More Information About our Cape Reed

Cape Reed bundles stored for collection

We have had a trade relationship with our Cape Reed supplier for almost 20 years.

Cape Reed has a great life span when installed to the correct specifications on thatched roofs; as a guideline a roof can last for approximately 20 – 30 years. Reed can, in certain climates, outlast this; particularly in hot, dry environments away from harsh coastal or humid conditions.
