Thatches; Past and the Present 

Thatches have been a usual view in the past. From houses to buildings every structure was thatched roofs. But later on, it evolved into many other innovations. 

In the face of increasing awareness about the vernacular materials and styles of particular regions, conservationists have realized that it is important to preserve and even return to historically correct thatching styles and materials.

The local authorities actively discourage the use of ‘foreign’ materials in any alterations to a listed building, and in any case, a listed building consent is required to alter a listed building. Grants for repairs and re-thatching are often dependent on compliance with thatched regulations.

Thatches actually make a really nice setup but several drawbacks make it a poor choice. But that is the case of Natural ones and other options are available to rectify it. 

Thatches are actually dried grass or straws arranged in proper order in a frame. They form a roof. A surprising factor is that they will stay strong for the time being. 

The natural thatches, as it is an organic product, it is subjected to decay. Pests and other insects might come inside and it will cause these thatches destruction. So changing thatches often would be the only option. But this option isn’t as simple as it sounds. Thatching is an art and not everyone can master or even reach near it. The story of thatches goes on like that.

Artificial and Synthetic thatches solved all these problems plus adds some additional features to them.
