replace thatch with chromadek

This method of converting roofs is popular for a few reasons. It is the least invasive of our conversion systems because the new roof is laid over the original thatch. This means that most of the work is outside and that the house is not open to the elements at any stage in the process. When you replace thatch with chromadek, it is the most cost effective system because the original thatched roof is retained; there is no need to build a new roof structure, to install extra insulation or ceilings.

Once you replace thatch with chromadek, it keeps the rustic look and feel of thatch on the inside of the house. When we over-sheet a thatched roof, the choice of what kind of new roofing you can use may be affected by the shape and style of the original roof design.

We have seen a recent trend among many clients in choosing chromadek to convert from thatch rather than using tiles. Metal roof sheeting is making a come back in South Africa where it used to be considered unappealing and was used mainly for industrial buildings, it’s now considered an attractive, environmentally conscious and budget-friendly roofing solution.
