We are also doing the re-thatching, renovations, cleaning and conservation
of the thatch and roof constructions for thatch. We are decorating thatch with ridges out
of ceramic, heather, wood, thatch and copper for the thatched roofs as well as other
decorative elements (oak on the ridges etc.).
We are doing our best that the works done by us, keep the ecological character and harmony
with the environment.
Through thousands of years as the civilization development had place, it also included
roof covering systems. From straw, strawmat, paring through tile, cardboard, plates and
artificial items we come back to reed as a covering material, which had passes the trial
within the time in all aspects.
Reed during preparations for using it as a covering material does not
undergo any modifications the development only caused the fact that through the ages
thatchers found new norms and rationalized new technology of covering, using technological
science progress, letting to use fully the advantages of reed. For example applying a
special chrome-nickel wire, which is resistant to oxidation, instead of cords for binding
the reed, what resulted in lengthening the durability of reed and the same to increase the
safety of this cover, thanks to the physical proprieties of the chrome-nickel wire
(resisting high temperatures).
An additional protection from ignition (impregnation by materials not flowed out by water,
not causing the biodegradation of the environment) and using the partitions out of
incombustible materials, makes thatch exceptionally safe professionally impregnated
thatch resists the ignition even with temporary activity of gas burner.
Thatch roof made and kept according to the modern thatching art can last up to 100 years.
