Straw roof thatches have long been a traditional feature of rural British constructions, owing to the abundance of the material. Dating back to the Bronze Age in Britain, straw roofs have a shaggy and picturesque appearance. As well as being attractive and enduringly popular, straw roofs have a number of advantages. They’re waterproof and offer protection and insulation against winter weather conditions. Straw roofs also provide ventilation and UV protection during the summer months. As a natural and sustainable building material, straw roofs are environmentally sound.
