Installing Reed Thatch Tiles

Tiles are supplied with clips that can be fastened to an 8mm bar or rope. Alternatively they can simply be nailed to a standard roof baton.

We would recommend a minimum roof pitch of  30 degrees. Tiles should be installed with a minimum overlap of 50mm. Once installed tiles are 98% water tight, require no maintenance and have a lifespan of 6-10 years.

NB: When using corner tiles the distance between fixings should be reduced from 350mm to 250mm
