Easy to use:
Thatch rolls can be cut, using scissors, to any shape between the knots without unraveling. Kind of like cutting a fish net. There are several ways to attach the thatch to the roof. The preferred method should be done with a staple gun and galvanized staples. Depending on the sub roof, meaning the thickness of plywood the recommended staples should be 1/2” to 3/4”. If your structure is seasonal, and you plan on removing the top for winter storage, zip lock ties are the best alternative for attachment. This, will allow you to remove the thatch with little to no damage to the material.
Determining How Much Thatch:
If using the 30" x 60 ft rolls, a good rule of thumb, is to take the total square footage to be covered and double it (for a double layer of thatch). Each roll measures about 114 square feet (excluding the fringe), so divide the total by 114 and then add 10 or 15% for overlapping and overhang. The result is the approximate number of rolls needed for your project.
