Synthetic Balinese Thatch – Basic Thatch / Re-Thatch Guide
To give you a basic idea of how much thatch you’ll need, we’ve put together a few examples. These are just examples, so please give us a call at 1300 900 239 and we’ll gladly go over your plan free of charge, and help you with specific suggestions.
Below is a basic estimate of how many tiles you will need to re-thatch your roof, or add thatch to a brand new structure. Just use the frame size as your guide, and you can see the approximate amounts of tiles.
Please keep in mind: We highly recommend a 35-40 degree pitch roofs. A good pitch will give you a better aesthetic result, provide easier route for water runoff (thus improving water tightness of the roof), will give you a cooler shade, and will withstand stronger gusts of wind.
These are just basic estimates. If you need a specific estimate or have any questions, please give us a call at 1300 900 239! We’re always here to help!
