Thatch Master

Thatchmaster specializes in any thatch construction, new second layers to thatch roofs and thatch repairs. Thatchmaster also does roof conversions with Safintra Steel sheets, Harvey Tile & Onduline Tiles. We also build complete entertainment areas with built-in braais, fire places, or whatever the need may be for a client. We also do alterations and additional building work to thatch roofs, large or small.

Thatchmaster has now also gone further to build and close thatch roofs, depending on what the client requires, with a light steel tile known as Metrotile and steel sheeting manufactured by Safintra, which is a combination between zink and aluminium.

Thatchmaster was formed in 1992 in Durban, by Christo Fick, who is still the sole member. The staff that started with the business was all recruited in the rural Midlands / Drakensburg area, for their specialised skills and workmanship and some are still working with Thatchmaster. We have professional experience and a focused service delivery is one of our major priorities.
