Repair damaged thatch roofs

Brushing and tightening of thatching ropes on lapas, thatch roofs and thatch houses.

Each thatch roof needs to be brush every 5 years, this is to keep your thatch roof neat and to prevent the thatch roof from rotting. This is general maintenance on you thatch roof that must be done.

Manufacture, Supply & Repairs of Fiberglass Ridging (Capping)

BRC Thatch build, manufacture and install fiberglass ridging. This fiberglass ridging is the capping or nok that are inserted on top of the thatch roof.

The thatch roof capping can also be built with grass or concrete but we prefer fiberglass. The concrete capping can be a problem. Sometimes the concrete mixture is not made to the correct specifications originally and the capping can crack and cause endless maintenance problems.

Lightning Conductors for Thatch roofs in Pretoria.

A lightning conductor is a steel galvanized pole that protects your Thatch Roof from lightning strike, by providing an easier path for current to flow to earth than through the thatch roof. It consists of a thick copper strip of very low resistance connected to the ground below. A good connection to the ground is essential and is made by burying a large metal plate deep in the damp earth. In the event of a direct lightning strike, the current in the conductor may be so great as to melt or even vaporize the metal, but the damage to your thatch roof will nevertheless be limited.
