Its naturally insulating properties are fantastic, HOWEVER, more and more people are starting to move away from thatch for the following reasons:

  • Thatch has a short life-span. It starts off beautiful, but as it get harassed by sun, pests and the elements, its glory starts to fade and it needs to be replaced or constantly patched up.
