You will hear people say that a thatch roof made of natural water reed will last four or five decades. That sounds impressive, right? It’s not quite that simple though. While you can retain parts of the roof for that long, around every eight years you will need to completely replace the roof ridge. Then, you will need to replace or repair other parts as they get ruined by pests like crows or rats. As you replace parts and patches on a natural thatched roof, the color loses consistency. It stops looking charming and romantic and starts looking ragged.
Plus, you have to apply chemical pest repellent and flame retardant every couple of years. If a storm blows through, you may have to repair parts of the roof as well. So, when they say that a thatched roof made of water reed will last four to five decades, well… consider their definition of “lasting.”
