How Sustainable Is Thatched Roofing?
A Smaller Carbon Footprint
When compared to other roofing materials such as tiles, thatched roofs have a number of advantages when it comes to sustainability. As thatch is made from plants that are grown there is less industrial processing that goes into the creation of the thatch making it have a lower carbon footprint.
This is one of the reasons why so many people are looking at purchasing properties with thatched roofs, as it helps them decrease their carbon footprint over time.
Lowering Your Energy Use
Did you know that thatch is a natural insulator? That means a thatch roof can help reduce your energy use without the additional use of insulation. This allows you to not just stay warm in winter and cool in the summer, but it means you use less energy throughout the year!
As energy bills are one of the biggest contributors to a families carbon footprints, by having a thatched roof property you’ll be able to do your bit for the environment whilst helping you keep your bills down.

We aim to use only the finest materials as part of our thatched roof projects. We ensure this by only working with the best quality thatch providers such as Hills of Devon and Tristan Johnson.
