Poplar Trusses
We go out of our way to reach and fulfill the needs of our customers. Our team completes jobs regularly and we’re always up to the task. Many projects involve the design, construction, and installation of exposed poplar trusses for the roof framework done by our team.
Creating natural light with Tony Sandell roof windows
Our roof windows and skylights are the way to go if you are trying to get any natural light into your thatched roof. This is the only window we use and we value the product’s consistency and longevity.

Our company specializes in installing roof windows and specialized flashing kits of thatch that are created for each window. For their requirements, our customers may choose from a broad variety of sizes. Only a specialized thatch contractor will mount these roof windows, and since our company has years of experience in the thatching business, our customers can be confident that they can only get the finest quality and workmanship. We do so much more than Lapa.

Custom-designed thatch roofs
We believe in going the extra mile to ensure that our valued clients get exactly what they hope for. At a recent installation at a clients home, instead of a typical thatched roof section, we rather installed it as a cover for an outside staircase and increased the overall elegance and design of the building.

To achieve functional and appropriate structural excellence, our planners and construction teams work closely together. We do our best to establish a creative and feasible approach, even if we are met with unexpected demands or problems.

If you need a carport or covered area for a large or small structure, we will build a custom thatched roof centered on the area you’d need, according to your requirements. We promise the best standard and workmanship of our goods and designs. Stop searching for Lapa and call us today.

We continue to provide re-thatching projects professionally and guarantee adequate sealing to prevent any potential leakages. Our clients frequently call us during rainy times of the year, to tell us that the sealing was a big success and that there were no water leaks to worry about anymore.

We also make sure that the nooks of the roof are also painted where appropriate, which gives the building a stunning terra-cotta colored finish that our customers remain very pleased with. We are proud to offer the best solution and support to our customers, and after every project is complete, it is humbling to get some positive reviews. Stop searching for Lapa and call us today.

No job is too big or too small
At our company, we agree that no matter how large or small the job might be, every job or project requires the attention it deserves. We concentrate on delivering excellent and competent support while striving to remain under certain time limits. We don’t focus solely on big projects. So, if you have a thatched roof that requires a bit of extra care, make sure you contact us for excellent service and great rates. Stop searching for Lapa and call us today.
