Thatch Roofing Shingles
Traditionally speaking, thatch roofs
the ultimate roofing choice for making one's home
look cozy, ethnic, or even tropical. The making of
thatch roofs hails back to prehistoric times when early
men had started building their huts and covered them
with thatched roofs typically made out of straw, reed,
Over the years of course, original thatch roofs have
lost out in a big way to faux or synthetic thatch
shingles that have flooded the market. The idea is to
experience the joys of a traditional thatch roofs
without the disadvantages that one might have faced
while using it in its original form.
Going by recent trends, there are a number of synthetic
thatch shingles available, made mostly out polythene
fibers that come with a strong U.V. resistant guarantee.
These fibers are carefully blended with a thin but tough
waterproofing membrane and can protect the owner from
the elements quite effectively. Manufacturers provide
warranties against color fastness, decay, and rot.
The polythene fibers used to make the shingles are
actually tiny plastic particles and a
polyurethane-binding strip is used to bond these
particles and form a shingle. These can be easily used
on any existing roof for a very low installation cost.
Although expert professional advice is always welcome,
owners can install these thatch shingles themselves
without much trouble.
These shingles come in shades of yellow and gold to give
a natural straw-look. Brownish-green shades are also
available that give the shingle a palm-appearance and
reminds one of tropical islands.
Outside the United States, thatch shingles have become
very popular in South Africa. Thatch shingles like the
ones that have a bamboo or eucalyptus lath finish are
becoming increasingly popular.
These synthetic shingles can be installed not only on
high-slope roofs but also on low-slope ones. With life
expectancy of a minimum of fifty years, these shingles
create a perfect blend of nostalgia and modernity.
