Let us take the stress out of re-thatching your Gazebo! We have already worked out what you require to re-thatch your Beach Hut Leisure, Breeze House, Julian Christian Design or Crown Pavilion Gazebo. Thatch Calculations are an estimate based on our experience.
The standard thatch tiles were designed around a Do-It-Yourself concept and can be clipped onto an 8mm diameter steel rod, rope or nailed onto a wooden batten, making construction a simple procedure. They are ideal for theming existing structures and creating an entirely new look to your outside space, Gazebo or garden buildings.
All Tiles are supplied with clips that can be fastened to an 8mm bar or rope and this is the recommended way to install. If required they can be nailed to a standard roof batten.
We would recommend a minimum roof pitch of 30 degrees. Thatched tiles should be installed with a minimum overlap of 50mm. Once installed tiles are 98% watertight, require no maintenance and have a lifespan of 6-10 years.
If you have one of The Lapa Company Gazebos and would prefer not to see the tiles and fixings from inside your structure, you can purchase a canvas roof lining from our Accessories range. Roof linings are available in over 30 different colours and made from UV resistant material. They are easy to add to your structure after the tiles are in place.
Please note when using corner tiles the distance between fixings should be reduced from 350mm to 250mm.
