Reed has undeniable architectural value and has a high level of technical capabilities.If we add to the above is also innovative methods of laying the roof, the roof of reeds popularity and straw increased in recent years, it is quite logical.
before the roof will cover the reed roof, the material goes a long way selection and pre-processing.Initially cane stalks are sorted
following types of reed and straw roofs:
Installation thatched roof
Cane roof installed on a previously prepared lathing and truss system that have sufficient strength and can withstand35-40 kg / m roof membrane.
first crate to spread bundles of reeds, then it strengthens the base of stainless steel wire, which is firmly fastened to the front of mounting furring using copper or brass screws.Then, all the metal parts are covered top with another layer of reed, which makes them invisible from outside.
reed roof can be used to cover the roofs of buildings of various types and sizes, but there are only limitation - the installation must take into account the slope of the roof.If the roof does not provide for dormers, the slope must be at least 30 °, if the project involves the window - the slope should be at 45 °.If the building is in an area of high mountains and snowy areas implied roof pitch up to 50 °.
Naturally, reed roof installation is estimated much higher than the installation of ceramic or metal.However, there is no need to install waterproofing, insulation and gutter leads to significant savings.Depending on the complexity, the average cost of installing the roof is about 80 euros.
Although that reed roof made from natural plant material, it does not attract rodents and birds.The special design and installation guidelines, bundles of reeds fit tightly and rodents do not have enough space for movement and the creation at the top moves and burrows.The severity and strength of the structure, in turn, prevent stretching of individual stems of reeds birds
