Synthetic Thatch Roof Material

  • Synthetic Thatch Roof Material

    Using synthetic thatch roof material allows you to skip a lot of the work that goes into building an authentic thatched roof. According to eHow, it all starts with bundling grass or reed together to create the thatch panels. True thatched roofs are made entirely of the panels, with no sub-roofing below it. With nothing but rafters to attach the panels to, the thatch has to be hand-stitched to the rafters to secure them to the structure. An optional step that can help keep the panels in place during high winds is to cover the finished roof with wire mesh, fastening it to the thatch by weaving wire throughout all the panels. Still, the natural materials won't last indefinitely and you may start to notice shedding and decomposition as early as 3 years after installation.
