Thatch can be defined as any vegetation used to roof a structure. The vegetation is gathered, bundled, and secured to a framework on top of a building. Thatch functions both as a shingle and underlayment; very rarely is there anything beyond simple framework between the thatch and the inside of the structure. For that reason, thatchers have to understand the qualities of the thatching material they use - its value as insulation and, particularly, its ability to withstand snow, wind, and rain.
Today, thatch is generally acknowledged for its visual appeal and as a way to add a historic or whimsical touch to a home. While it does impart a storybook quality to many structures, thatch also retains the practical aspects of its past. In addition to its beauty, one of its best qualities is its ability to act as an effective insulator. And believe it or not, repairing a thatched roof is much easier than you would think. In addition, today's thatched roofs benefit from the efforts of modern science - they can be made fire retardant. In recent years, thatch has been gaining popularity because of the current trend towards using more natural building materials.
