Why Re-Thatching is Not a DIY Job

Having a thatched roof on your Bali Hut or African Thatch gives a fantastic exotic feel to any backyard, and can quickly transform something dull into a tropical paradise. However, from time to time, that thatched roof will need repairing. There is no use grabbing a ladder and attempting to do it on your own. This is a job for the pros at Aarons Outdoor.

Wear and tear

Aarons Outdoor produce high-quality Australian-made products using the highest-grade materials. These products are built-to-last with proper care and maintenance, but unfortunately, even well-constructed thatched roofs will be in need of repair or replacing at some point. There are things out of our control that can contribute to wear and tear to outside thatched roofs, such as harsh weather conditions or wildlife.

Trust the experts

Trying to patch up a thatched roof on your own is not a good idea. If you are unfamiliar with the architecture of a thatched roof, you can often do more damage than good, or have it end up looking like patchwork – especially if you aren’t using the right materials. Plus, you may find yourself having to re-do the work again in a few months if the job was not done correctly.

Our re-thatching specialists are trained on getting your thatched roof looking like new again. We don’t mix and match products. Instead, you will get quality Alang Alang Bali Grass or African Cape Reed tiles that match.

A simple change to the feel of your backyard

Re-thatching isn’t just for roofs that need repair or maintenance. You can often transform the look of an existing structure with a thatch roof. You won’t need to buy a whole new structure, but this simple change can really change the feel of your backyard.

Reduce the Need for Repairs

You can help keep away the need for significant repairs that can be costly by having regular thatch maintenance. It’s good to check for irregularities that can easily be repaired. Otherwise, these small problems can become big ones. This will help put off the need for a greater re-thatching or complete thatch replacement. There is also an option to improve the longevity of your thatching using Thatchcoat. Contact us for further information regarding this product.

Professionals can help with insurance claims

If your re-thatch is to be claimed back on your home insurance, then a professional company will be able to help you in your claim. We can submit a quote right to your insurance agency on your behalf. All you need to do is a make a phone call to Aarons, and we will take care of the hard work, leaving you with less stress.

If you suspect your thatched roof needs a repair or maintenance, then Aarons Outdoor is here to help. For over 25-years, Australia has been relying on Aarons to provide maintenance and repairs to thatched roofs, leaving them with a fabulous area to enjoy again.
