The Thatched Roofing Company - Since 1983
What we do & Who we are

The Thatched Roofing Company was the first company to import Balinese Thatch – Indonesian Thatch (Alang-Alang) grass roofing material into Australia, this process included botanical identification of the product and involvement in the first AQIS approved quarantine regime for the product.

Since the first imports in 1983 we have been the only company to continuously stock this product specialising in wholesale production and retail supply in Australia together with tile products, bamboo woven matting and coconut poles.

The Thatched Roofing Company is able to provide a service to customers nationally with representation on both the West and the East Coast of Australia.  Please feel free to contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

In Australia

With our outdoor lifestyle, thatching has become a natural and attractive way of roofing leisure structures and as many Australians have made Bali their holiday island, Balinese thatch has become the product of choice for gazebos, outdoor bars and pool side structures.

This product is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, provides excellent insulation properties for hot climates (many people say it is at least 10-15 degrees cooler than other materials) and depending upon the density at which the roof is installed, the product can be 100% waterproof, although wider spacings often provide more cost effective showerproof solutions.

In Bali

Traditional Balinese roofs are made with bamboo rafters, however in recent years a significant portion of structures have been constructed utilising locally available timbers. This is the material which is commonly used in Australia and is a far less expensive alternative. Most Australian gazebo builders and DIY handymen are not skilled in the installation of a full bamboo rafter type roof, and therefore most structures in Australia would be built using timber dried to the Australian Standard. This minimises the warping and cracking which is common when Indonesian timbers are used.

On traditional structures the lower rafters for Alang-Alang roofs have had additional short rafters, set at a lower pitch, overlapping the bottom of the main rafter.  This creates a slight upward lift to the roof at the eaves, however the same effect can be achieved by utilising a thicker batten at the lower edge of the roof.
