Why Thatching Is Making a Comeback
Long ago, thatching was a premier roofing method utilized in numerous civilizations across temperate and tropical climates. The craft involves densely layering dried vegetation such as water reeds or straw so that rainfall sheds away from the inner roof, delivering exceptional protection from the elements and temperature insulation.
The number of thatched buildings fell as other roofing methods rose in prominence. However, modern interest in preserving historic buildings and using sustainable building methods have re-popularized thatching. Many property owners have embraced the craft’s many benefits, from its one-of-a-kind visual appeal to its surprisingly good longevity and fire protection.
